Nutshell.png This page in a nutshell: If you see something you can improve, improve it!

Weezerpedia wants you to edit as often as possible! To quote Weezer's 2009 single "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To,"

"If you're wondering if I want you to, I want you! So make a move, 'cause I ain't got all night!"

"So make a move"

Rivers Cuomo wants you to make a move, and so do we!

The Weezerpedia community encourages users to make a move when updating the encyclopedia. Wikis like ours develop faster when everybody helps to fix problems, correct grammar, add facts, make sure wording is accurate, etc. We would like everyone to make a move and help make Weezerpedia a better encyclopedia. How many times have you read something and thought, "Why aren't these pages copy-edited?" Weezerpedia not only allows you to add, revise, and edit articles: it wants you to do it. It does require some amount of politeness, but it works. You'll see. Of course, others here will edit what you write. Do not take it personally! They, like all of us, just wish to make Weezerpedia as good an encyclopedia as it can possibly be.

Also, when you see a conflict in a talk page, do not be just a "mute spectator." Make a move and drop your opinion there!

Even if you don't know much about Weezer, there is undoubtedly something on Weezerpedia that you can correct or change. Make a move!

...but make sure that too much pain doesn't come our way

Brian Bell, Pat Wilson, and Scott Shriner as happy as can be after Rivers Cuomo makes a move!

Though the boldness of contributors like you is one of Weezerpedia's greatest assets, it is important that contributors take care of the common good and not edit recklessly. Of course, any changes you make that turn out badly can be reverted, usually painlessly. It is important not to be insulted if your changes are reverted or edited further. But there are some significant changes that can be long-lasting and that are harder to fix if the need arises. If you're unsure of anything, just ask for advice.

Often it is easier to see that something is not right rather than to know exactly what would be right. We do not require that everyone make a move. After all, commenting that something in an article is incorrect can be the first step to getting it fixed. It is true, though, that problems are more certain to be fixed, and will probably be fixed faster, if you are bold enough to do it yourself.

Any contribution you make is wholly appreciated. Thanks for helping!
