Wikis are meant to allow anyone to easily add their thoughts & content, so just jump in and do it. Once you log in, you can edit any page by clicking the 'edit' tab at the top. The links below provide practical details about editing. If you want to experiment before altering an actual page, you can do it in the sandbox (you can go there anytime via the sidebar also). CAMRAwiki is an implementation of the popular MediaWiki [1] program.

Adding images [5] can be tricky. The easiest way is to: 1) create the tag for the image file in the page you're editing, 2) save your edits, and then 3) click on the filename (which will be displayed in red inside a box); this will allow you to upload the file to the wiki.
