Welcome to the New Zealand wiki! We hope you can make continuing contributions of articles and/or discussion and other improvements. Articles about people are particularly welcome.

If you are new to Wikia or wikis in general, be sure to visit the "Community portal" for an outline of some of the main parts of the site, links to pages that tell you how to edit, and other pages designed to help you make the most of your visits.

Do keep an eye on the "recent changes" page, where all edits and their authors (anonymous or signed-in) are listed. Bookmark it, maybe. (And help delete spam - unpleasant but a fact of life.)

There's an email list system used to get messages to all listed members: see http://www.wikia.com/mailman/listinfo/newzealand-l. "Traffic" has been rather low since we started, so you will not risk flooding your inbox by joining.

Please consider adding a "Babel" template (if you have not already done so) to your User page so that others know which languages you are comfortable reading. The site is basically in English, but there's no prohibition on other languages, and Māori is more than welcome.

If you live in New Zealand, you're invited to add your name to [[Category:Wikians in New Zealand‎|{{PAGENAME}}]] by adding that to your User page (the double square brackets and everything between them). And if your fortune lies elsewhere, you may create a corresponding category for your country unless there is one already. See Category:Contributors.

Discussion of any aspect of the site, and enquiries, can be made through the Forum or on the Talk page associated with each article. Sign and date your contributions there, so that readers know "who to talk to" and whether your message is probably still of current interest. If you write on a user's "talk" page, that user will get an alerting message on next visit.

It would help some of us to know how you discovered this site.


(I can see that you know most of the above!) You would be most welcome to develop our rugby sections.
