The Changeringing Wiki

Helping Develop the Wiki

Anyone can help create and edit pages for the Wiki. Please contribute articles you have written, information collated from public sources, or write something brand new. Also, if you see any errors, or want to add to or improve any pages, please edit them so that the quality and depth of content improves over time.

If you need help please see the Help page for more infomation about editing pages. If you need ideas, go to Wanted Pages and if you would like something written, create a new page with no content.

When considering adding content please follow some common sense rules:

  • The pages are genuinely ringing related
  • The information is authentic
  • It is not just a list of links, unless this collates information not already presented well elsewhere.
  • Descriptions of ringing products, services, companies, and societies are acceptable, provided that they are purely informative, not advertisements.

Getting Started

  • First register to become an editor (See Request Account).
  • Then look at Help in the navigation bar so you know what to do and how to edit.
  • Log in and Create or Edit any page of your choice!
