I have a confession.  I barely know how it works, myself.  Since I
gave up editing almost completely, so that I might function as a
neutral moderator to assist people with disputes, and so that my own
admittedly extreme political views (libertarian) wouldn't seem in some
way 'favored', many new features have been added, and whenever I do
edit (rarely, and sometimes anonymously, *gasp*!), I find myself a
little bit baffled as to what to do.

[[How to edit a page]] is very helpful, though, if a bit long.
