Help:Starting a new page
MediaWiki makes it very easy to link wiki pages using a standard syntax (see Links). If you (or anyone else) creates a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be coloured orange, like this.
Contrary to other Mediawiki sites, EVElopedia does not distinguish between non-existing pages and existing ones, nor the pages you've already visited.
Clicking on the link will take you to the page if it does exist, or to an option to create the page if it doesn't. Simply type your text, click save and the new page will be created.
Usually this is the best way to create a new page, because it means that right from the start, the page will be linked from at least one other place on the wiki (and typically you will want to mesh it into other related pages later). If you are creating a new page without creating any link to it, you may need to ask yourself: Does this page really fit in with the topics already covered in the wiki? Also, how are you expecting visitors to find this page? Normally there is no reason to create a page without first creating a link to it.
Using the URL
You can use the wiki's URL for creating a new page. The URL to an article of the wiki is usually something like this:
If you replace
From the search page
If you search for a page that doesn't exist (using the search box and 'go' button on the left of the page) then you will be provided with a link to create the new page. (Note that this technique doesn't work if you use the 'search' button).
Create redirects to your new page
Don't forget to setup redirects when you create a page. If you think another person may search for the page you've created by using a different name or spelling, please create the proper redirect(s). See Help:Redirects
