    Looking to Write a Brand-New Wiki Page

    Hey everyone,

    I have a new article idea for troubleshooting that I think would help people with their problems in the forums. It's my first article I posted and I have a few questions about it:

    1) How would I go about posting it on the wiki page?
    2) Are there any rules I should consider when posting the article?
    3) Should I contact anyone about posting the article?
    4) Is there anything else I should consider when posting the page?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    About a year-ish ago they had to lockdown wiki/help page editing:
    Why? here -- https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2308813

    In order to gain access (and be accepted into the wiki teams) see:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WikiGuide

    I believe to join the editors teams they would prefer it if you has signed the Ubuntu Code of Conduct.

    That definitely helped. I think I'm officially in, with security and what-not.

    One last question: how are we contacted in Launchpad? I sent a message to the documentation team proposing my troubleshooting page idea. Will I receive a message via email, or in Launchpad itself? If it's in Launchpad, how do I view the messages online?

    If someone wants/needs to contact you they'll email you through Launchpad.

    Yeah that's what it looks like. I sent a test message to myself and it came through my Gmail account.

    Thanks.
