In line with the principles of Wiki feel free to add your own content to pages in the Wiki. Play fair, and try to keep it structured in the same way as existing entries. Get familiar with Wiki using the SandBox .

StructuredText : What does the Structured Text (and re-structured text) do? Is it some other form of markup up? Structured text is a low impact way of organising text so that it is rendered nicely in a compliant browser, no need for italics and underscore format options, you merely adopt conventions like "underlined_" to make a word _underlined, or "bold" to make a word bold. Think of it as a shorthand formatting technique. See StructuredText for the HowTo.

Q: What happens when I add a CamelCase[+] word in the comments section as an anonymous visitor?

A: Anonymous can add comments, but...

but cannot create a new wiki page due to the gruf permissions setup for the site. If you really want to add your own wiki pages you need to register on the site first.
