Hello, SmangaMbongwa, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like this place and decide to stay.

Why can't I edit some particular pages?
Some pages that have been vandalized repeatedly are semi-protected, meaning that editing by new or unregistered users is prohibited through technical measures. If you have an account that is four days old and has made at least 10 edits, then you can bypass semi-protection and edit any semi-protected page. Some pages, such as highly visible templates, are fully-protected, meaning that only administrators can edit them. If this is not the case, you may have been blocked or your IP address caught up in a range block.
Where can I experiment with editing Wikipedia?
How do I create an article?
See how to create your first article, then use the Article Wizard to create one, and add references to the article as explained below.
How do I create citations?
  1. Do a search on Google or your preferred search engine for the subject of the Wikipedia article that you want to create a citation for.
  2. Find a website that supports the claim you are trying to find a citation for.
  3. In a new tab/window, go to the citation generator, click on the 'An arbitrary website' bubble, and fill out as many fields as you can about the website you just found.
  4. Click the 'Get reference wiki text' button.
  5. Highlight, and then copy (Ctrl+C or Apple+C), the resulting text (it will be something like <ref> {{cite web | .... }}</ref>, copy the whole thing).
  6. In the Wikipedia article, after the claim you found a citation for, paste (Ctrl+V or Apple+V) the text you copied.
  7. If the article does not have a References or Notes section (or the like), add this to the bottom of the page, but above the External Links section and the categories:
What is a WikiProject, and how do I join one?
A WikiProject is a group of editors that are interested in improving the coverage of certain topics on Wikipedia. (See this page for a complete list of WikiProjects.) If you would like to help, add your username to the list that is on the bottom of the WikiProject page.

You are kindly invited to partake in Wikimedia South Africa's own Wiki Love's fynbos and science competition. The competition was first organized in Estonia, expanded to all of Europe in 2015, and to the rest of the world in 2017. A very special category for Wiki Science in South Africa is the Fynbos category.

To participate, you must:

Be the author of pictures/submissions you upload. Must have the rights (copyright) to upload your submissions. The photographs should be of high quality and large size and need to have a good description including what the image depicts, how and where it was made, and what is important to notice about it (please include any links to peer-reviewed publications if appropriate, not required but a very nice thing to have). Use the Wikimedia Commons category: Images from Wiki Science Competition 2021 in South Africa to enter your pictures into the competition. It is encouraged to add the images to other additional appropriate Commons categories. For more details, see the full international rules. Use the hashtags Twitter Logo Mini.svg #WSC2021 #WikiScience #WikiScience2021 to spread the word about the competition!Schnabel Mchuchu (WMZA) (talk) 08:51, 3 December 2021 (UTC)Schnabel Mchuchu (WMZA)Reply[reply]
