  • 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.

  • 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!
