Get started with editing the wiki.

Anyone can edit any page and improve articles immediately for all readers. You just need to login and request edit permissions in #rtgame_wiki on the Discord. The RTGame Wiki uses two methods of editing: the simpler VisualEditor, and classic editing through source mode.
