Wikipedia:Guidance for younger editors

Wikipedia is "the encyclopedia that anyone can edit", but there are some rules. There are no age restrictions for editing Wikipedia or writing new articles; the most important thing is the quality of what you write, the changes you make to what other people have written, and the way you work together with other editors. Most likely you'll need some basic advice, and that's what we hope to give you here. Read on for links to other important pieces of information that are necessary for understanding Wikipedia.

Parents, guardians, teachers, and other adults may benefit from reading this page as well as Wikipedia:Advice for parents. There is also a development area at Wikipedia:Child protection. Read more about privacy, confidentiality and discretion on Wikipedia.
