Editing is limited to NaNoWriMo or Script Frenzy participants at this time in order to minimize the amount of spam. [[Special:RequestAccount|Go ahead and request an account]] if you're a participant.

In short, don't let your supposed lack of knowledge stop you. Whatever knowledge you have is enough. I promise.

As long as you can provide enough evidence that you've done one of those events before, sure.

Sure. Anyone can contribute, no matter how much you know about the events and community.
 
  −
=== My request for an account was rejected! What happened? ===
  −
The main reason is that you didn't provide sufficient evidence of being a Wrimo or Screnzier. The best way to have your account accepted promptly is to provide your NaNoWriMo or Script Frenzy username in the box that says "NaNoWriMo or Script Frenzy username". If you happen to be a new Wrimo or Screnzier, links to a few posts you've made are also helpful just to show you're not a spambot.

=== I didn't get a password after my account was approved. ===
  −
Your password will be emailed to you when your account is approved. If it still hasn't arrived in a few minutes, take the following steps.
     −
# Check your spam folder. It may have gotten caught there.
+
=== Do I have to enter my email address? You might steal it. ===
# If your password isn't there and your email address is confirmed, attempt to log in. Enter your username and click "Email new password".
+
It's a completely optional field, but I recommend it if only because you might forget your password one day. Entering your email address makes the process of resetting your password easy and free of other human interference.
# If you still don't have a password after a few minutes, contact us at sushimustwrite at wikiwrimo period org. We can send you a new password. It will be in plaintext, so when you log in, please change this password to something secure and something you can remember. We'll never send you your current password via email.
      
=== I can't remember my password. Help! ===
 
=== I can't remember my password. Help! ===
Try to login, enter your username, and click "Email new password". You'll receive a temporary password to use. This temporary password will be sent to you in plain text and is good for only a week, so make sure to change your password to something more secure and memorable after logging in.
+
Try to login, enter your username, and click "Email new password". This only works if you entered an email address when you created a user account. I highly recommend doing so. [Actually, this isn't working for some reason. I'm working on getting it fixed.]

Since multiple people have asked: You can! The only expenses at Wikiwrimo are for hosting, which are not that much at the moment but still exist. That said, '''if you are financially able, please [https://store.lettersandlight.org donate to OLL]'''.

There is no minimum amount to donate to Wikiwrimo, though the suggested minimum amount is one dollar. The highest donation my webhost has received to date is over a thousand dollars, but if you have that kind of money to spare, donate to OLL instead. I'll understand.
