We're really keen to have folk add news to the wiki as and when it happens, so here are a few guidelines to get you going.

The technical bit

  • Firstly, you'll want to got to the News page and add a link to your news item. Load up the page and click the edit tab at the top of the page.
  • Add your link with the following style above the last news item.
*[[News item title]] - dd/mm/yyyy
 A short description of the news.
  • Please get the formatting right as it makes our lives easier and makes the site look way better.
  • Once you've added the text save the page
  • Your news item should now be a red link - click this.
  • Once the editing form has loaded you can add your text with the following formatting:


  • The text of the article should include relevant facts; who, what, where, when, why etc. You may also wish to inlcude any background that readers may find intresting.
  • If you want to add some pictures, feel free to do so. - They look good and add context. Please caption any photos.
  • Adding videos is also good - there's a help page Help:Videos that has a template you can use.
  • Add Reported by to the Article, along with the date. at the bottom of the page works well
 Reported by: Your Name - dd/mm/yyyy

  • Hit preview to see what it's going to look like and if you're happy, hit save.
  • That's really all there is to it although you should know that new news does not show up on the Main Page until it has been approved by one of the staff.
