This page and the contents of the Help namespace cover the Wiki software used on this server: Mediawiki.
 
If you are new to Wikis and MediaWiki in particular then you should consult the official '''[http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Contents Mediawiki Handbook]''' for information on using this wiki. Users of other wikis (e.g. DokuWiki/JD-Wiki) should make themself familiar with the slightly different [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext_reference text formatting and wikitext syntax].

*'''Message notification''': user gets a "You have new messages" notice if someone else has edited their user discussion page
 
*'''Automatic signature''': Just type three tildes (~) when you edit, and on saving the page, it will be replaced with your user name and a link to your user page. If you use four tildes, the current date will be added as well. Mainly intended for Talk pages.
