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.

Welcome here !
Hi Tarn, Welcome to the Camera-Wiki and great that you already did some edits !!
One tip I have for when you encounter a dead link to an interesting external webpage is to first have a look if an archived version exists.
I did this for the Mecaflex page and there are indeed several archived versions, you can see them here :
So i chose the latest one which still looks good and put that on the Mecaflex page with the remark (archived) at the end.
http://web.archive.org is a great thing at it enabled me many times to restore a no longer existing webpage !
