FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

This is a list of frequently asked questions about using and contributing to the KSP wiki.

For many more questions and answers, you can browse our additional FAQ pages (see above).

How do I edit a page?

Editing most wiki pages is easy, just click the "Edit" tab at the top of a wiki page (or on a section-edit link). This will take you to a new page with a text box containing the editable text of the page you were viewing. In this box you can type in the text that you want to add using wiki markup to format the text and add other elements like images and tables. When you have finished editing you should write a short edit summary in the small field below the edit-box describing your changes.

How do I create a new page?

You are required to have a KSP Wiki account to create a new article, you can register here.

Why was my article deleted?

If you look at the address where your page was, it should have a red box above it that shows the user who deleted it (in the form "Username (talk|contribs)") and their reason (which appears in italics). If the reason is not helpful, or you disagree with it, you can click on the "talk" link to send them a message and ask.

How do I change my username/delete my account?

A username cannot be changed on this wiki.
An account cannot be deleted. If an account was deleted, all the edits made by the user could not be properly attributed.

Who writes the articles on the KSP Wiki?

Almost all articles on the KSP Wiki are written by multiple editors, not just one. If you click on the "View history" tab at the top of an article, a list will be displayed of all the contributors to the article and when their contribution was made.
