== OMG!! Do I have to do ''[[Help:Editing|all that]]'' just to start a new page!?! ==
No. Of course not.
The wiki page elements shown on PortlandWiki's [[Help:Editing|editing help page]] are merely a few structural suggestions to help you get going. That said, our hope is to see all new and existing PortlandWiki pages become endowed with enough coherent content to make them at least minimally informative, useful and/or entertaining. If a page takes firm enough root, it can grow from there. So use your imagination and start editing! [[User:WikiMaster|WikiMaster]] ([[User talk:WikiMaster|talk]]) 18:36, 2 September 2010 (PDT)
