How to design the example page
Step 1: Locate the page
First of all, we need to locate the page we want to contribute to by searching for it. Load the page up by clicking it from the search results.
Step 2: Editing the page
In the address bar, add the text "#/editor/0" to the end of the page URL to go into editor mode. For example "wikidesign.world/How_to_design_the_toothbrush#/editor/0".
Step 3: Copy & modify the code
1. Copy the code into the editor above the tag "NEW CONTRIBUTOR - PASTE RIGHT ABOVE THIS LINE".
2. Modify your author 'NUMBER' tags (if there are 3 authors already, then your author number will be 4) and also provide a contribution date.
3. Save the page to show your intentions of contributing, then you may go back into editor mode to add your contribution, where you will have 2 weeks to finalise it (after this date, other contributors can begin contributing to the page).
Note 1: If an author has suggested an idea already, try not to copy the same idea, but you may provide an adjustment to the suggestion.
Note 2: Before submitting/saving the page, remember to copy the entire editor box, in case of data loss by connection or server.
Note 3: We recommend writing up your contribution on your computer in a notepad, to give yourself enough time to write your content.
<!-- ########## AUTHOR 'NUMBER' START ########## --> ///In Progress <h1>Author 2: Miss Author's Name</h1> <h2>About</h2> ... <h2>Contribution Date</h2> ... <h2>Product lifespan</h2> ... <h2>Problems identified</h2> <h3>Problem 1</h3> ... <h3>Problem 2</h3> ... <h3>Problem 3</h3> ... <h2>Aim & solutions</h2> <h3>Suggestion 1</h3> ... <h3>Suggestion 2</h3> ... <h3>Suggestion 3</h3> ... <h2>Cleaning & restoration</h2> <h3>Cleaning method 1</h3> ... <h3>Cleaning method 2</h3> ... <h3>Restoration method 1</h3> ... <h2>Recyclable options</h2> <h3>Recyclable option 1</h3> ... <h3>Recyclable option 2</h3> ... <h3>Recyclable option 3</h3> ... <h2>Sources & examples</h2> ... <h2>Action taken/influence</h2> ... <!-- ########## AUTHOR 'NUMBER' END ########## -->
