Here is some general advice for editing Saturday Night Live wiki:
Jump right in! Don't be afraid to get started. Anyone is free to edit a wiki, so start commenting, creating new forum threads, and writing blog posts.
Contribute to what you find useful. Saturday Night Live is a show that has covered a forty-year span, with a large number of actors and shows. What matters to some people may not matter to everyone. Focus your attention on topics in which you're interested, and don't worry if others are focusing on other aspects of the show.
Spread the word! A community is only as strong as all of its members. The more it has, the stronger (and more successful) it will become. So invite your friends and other Wikians who may be interested in Community Central to start spending time here, and give them tips on how to get the most out of their experience.
Ask for help. If you are confused or need help, just ask! There are a lot of useful resources here, including our Help Pages and Support Forums. You can contact the administrator at user talk:JeremyGU. No question is too small!
Be nice and treat people with respect. Being friendly goes a long way, no matter where you are. Say hello to others, welcome new users, provide help when you can, and ask others if you need assistance. Being nice and treating people with respect can greatly impact the growth and success of this wiki community.
Practice open-mindedness and assume good faith. Since the wiki is open for anyone to contribute to, users of all skill levels and opinions are welcome to participate. We assume that most people who work on a wiki are trying to improve it, not hurt it. If this wasn't true, a wiki project would be doomed from the beginning. If you think there is a problem, it's best to ask the user involved about the issue first, then take additional steps if needed.
Explain your reverts. If you use the revert feature, or remove someone's additions without using the revert button, you must explain why in the edit summary. The only exception to this rule is if you are reverting vandalism so blatant that it doesn't require summation (such as the addition of fake middle names or birth dates to articles about real people).
No re-reverts. To prevent edit warring, never revert a revert, or re-add or re-remove content, if you previously added or removed said content, and that edit was reverted. If you disagree with a revert, you must first discuss the changes with the reverting user. If the reverting user does not reply within seven days, removes your post(s) on their user talk page, or otherwise signals an unwillingness to engage in dialogue, this rule does not apply. If a user reverts but refuses to discuss their actions, this will be considered a violation of the above rule about explaining reverts.
- Exception to this rule: The administrator(s) have final say on what content remains. Reverting administrators may lead to a block.
How the administrator pledges to behave
Be fair. Consider situations carefully before acting on them. If a user makes an honest mistake, give them the opportunity to learn and improve.
Encourage participation. Be friendly and welcoming to members, help them get to know the wiki, and support their interactions.
Keep things structured, but not too structured. Do my best to support and maintain the goals and organization of the wiki, but be flexible about growth and change.
