Introduction Explore Thelemapedia Editing  


Editing articles

The central feature of Thelemapedia is the ability for anyone to add and edit articles quickly and easily. Every article is available for editing, including adding new material, making corrections, removing information, and formatting the page. Editing a page is easy: simply click on the "edit" tab in the nav bar above the page you want to edit (not this page!) and you'll see the code available for changing.

You'll soon notice that most links on Thelemapedia are either blue or red. Blue links lead to articles that have some content in the page, and red means the linked page has no content yet. By clicking on a red link, you have a chance to begin a new article (which will turn all links to it blue).

If you want to learn how to edit in Thelemapedia, our Really Simple Tutorial is highly recommended.


Becoming an editor

Right now, editing requires becoming a registered member. You do not have to sign up to use Thelemapedia: it is free for everyone to read. However, if you want to edit articles and add to the encyclopedia, then you have to create an account by applying to become a Thelemapedia editor. The first step is to look over our editorial policies to make sure you agree with them and can work within our guidelines. By applying for membership, you are implicitly agreeing with these policies, so it's important you read them first.

There are only two requirements for becoming a Thelemapedia editor:

  1. The ability to work within the guidelines of our editorial policies, and
  2. Showing that you have some writing experience

There are no other requirements for membership, such as association with any organization or church, being a Thelemic scholar, or even being an avowed Thelemite. In such cases, all you need is a desire to add to and improve the site.

When you are ready, send an email to accounts@thelemapedia.org (mailto:accounts@thelemapedia.org) with the following information:

  1. Full civil name (i.e. the name on your driver's license)
  2. Desired Username
  3. Working email address (this is necessary to get your pasword)
  4. City, State, and Country where you reside
  5. An example of writing, preferably online (such as a blog, personal website, or online publication)
  6. A brief description of how you think you might contribute to Thelemapedia

All personal information, including your civil name, will remain strictly confidential.

Thelemapedia reserves the right to deny or accept any person for membership for any reason and at any time, without the need for explanation.
