In general, please don't be shy about editing! We value substance over style, so don't worry if you're not a wiki-nerd. And don't be afraid that you will mess up a page, because the wiki software keeps all old versions of a page, so it's always possible to undo a change. We also welcome anyone, not just Caltech students, to participate. All we ask is that you behave nicely towards one another.
