Thanks for your interest in helping with this tidal documentation effort!

This website is a wiki, which makes it easy to edit and create new webpages. In particular, it uses the mediawiki software. You can get a long way by clicking 'edit' and making changes, copying the 'wiki markup' already used on the page you're editing. Please don't worry about messing anything up! If you make a mistake, it's super easy to undo. It's much better to correct the occasional mistake than not have any contributions :)

If you'd like more detail about how to edit pages, please have a look at the documentation on the mediawiki site.
