Hi Shaolin - have you been able to become a wiki editor yet? If not, contact "Barry Barnitz" or "LadyGeek". You can see their posts earlier in this thread.

I would like to request being a Wiki editor. While I am not the most active on the forum, I have experience on Wikipedia's main site with creating pages and making regular edits. I wanted to make minor additions to several articles (most recently I saw was to add "DINK" to the abbreviations page).

I'd like to join the wiki. To get started I'd like to correct a broken link on the 'Household budgeting' page at https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Household_budgeting

The U.S. Department of Labor .pdf document 'Savings Fitness: A Guide to Your Money and Your Financial Future' was at:
http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/savingsfitness.pdf

Mainly want to fix the link on this page:
https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/529_pla ... ings_plans

The link in question is under the text "chart from FINRA" and points to this (broken) url:
http://www.finra.org/Investors/SmartInv ... ge/P124117

I believe the updated url should be this:
https://www.finra.org/investors/learn-t ... ison-chart

I can fix it if someone gives me access, or if someone wants to fix it themselves that's fine too.
Cheers. :beer

(As an aside, I noticed the FINRA chart is incomplete as it doesn't mention recapture taxes under "Penalties for Non-Qualified Withdrawals" in the case of some states. But that's another topic.)

I have fixed this specific broken link. Thank you for the note, and for providing the corrected page URL.

I can't make you a wiki editor myself -- don't have the privileges -- but if you still want to become an editor you'd be more than welcome.

Thanks for fixing the link!

If someone wants to make me and editor just so I don't have to bother people in this thread again next time I want to suggest a change, I'm fine with that. If you want to keep the number of editors to a minimum, I'm fine with not being an editor too. Whichever fits with how you guys want to run things. :)

Ricchan and DCode - I have added both of you as wiki editors. Thanks!

I'd like to edit the wiki, specifically the TSP page's matching section, as new military members (and those that joined after about 2005) now have access to matching funds.

I'd like to edit the wiki. To start with I would fix some minor issues:
1. https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Saver%27s_credit mentions something about tables for years 2018 and 2017, but there are no such tables.
2. https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Rolling ... bond_funds says "This makes clear a key fact often admitted ..."; last word should be "omitted" like the same text says in https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Individ ... _bond_fund.

I'd like to become an editor. Table 5 of https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Emerging_market_bonds has out-of-date expense ratios and the table of EM bond returns on that page hasn't been updated since 2016.
