Start small, with little steps, such as correcting a typo or misspelling. Rome The wiki wasn't built in a day.
I sometimes find grammar or spelling error or out of date links - but I'm afraid of messing up the Wiki by trying to edit :wink: I assume there's a way for the editors to correct my editing mistakes . . .

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.

May I please be made a Wiki editor? Following a long discussion on marginal tax rates and Roth vs. Traditional, I'd like to make some edits to these articles.

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
It is now at:
