Welcome to Camera-Wiki.org!
Thanks for creating an account here on Camera-Wiki.org! We appreciate your willingness to help us create the most comprehensive camera and photography encyclopedia on the web. Camera-Wiki.org is a big website, so we'd like to offer a few quick pointers to help get you started.
First off, please let us know you're real - there are lots of spambots out there who like to create accounts and post spam. All you need to do is let us know you're a real human who's interested in cameras by clicking the "Edit" tab above and writing a short "hello, I'm a camera geek not a spambot!" message to us.
You also have a profile page that you can edit to tell us more about yourself if you'd like. It's purely optional but it's always nice to get to know another camera lover.
This website uses software called Mediawiki that's also used by WikiPedia. If you already know how to use and edit WikiPedia, you'll feel right at home here. If not, we have special page where you can learn to edit, called the Sandbox. It's a place where you try things out and experiment with no worries of breaking anything.

How you can help:

- Post photos of your camera gear on Flickr and add them to the Camera-Wiki.org Flickr group
- Make a donation to help us pay for hosting
Welcome! However, you'll see that I've deleted the link you added to your User page. We're ok about contributors having a link to a personal site, and some of those include some work stuff; but you linked to a company site as your first edit in the wiki; a bit too much like one of the spammers we get here, who drop a link to their product, and never do anything to help build the wiki. If you're interested in contributing to the site, we're happy to have you here: but maybe you could start with something about cameras. Cheers! --Dustin McAmera (talk) 07:36, 19 October 2014 (PDT)
