==How to Use Discussion / Talk Pages==
+
 
+
:When you build a wiki page with others, it helps to have a place to carry on discussion about the page without cluttering it up with comments.  Every wiki page has a "Talk page" accessed by clicking on the "Discussion" tab for the page (You only see this tab when you are logged in.).  Use the talk page to identify issues and things on the page that need work. The following file from Mediawiki has some good advice on organizing talk pages.

1. In an edit screen, type the name of the new page in double brakets (e.g. [[test new page]]). 
  
[[Category:Main Page]]

2.  The new page link will appear in red.  Click on it and you will go to the editor for the new page.  Edit and save.
