As well as editing, users are invited to become involved in maintenance tasks. Most of these tasks can be done by any user, not just administrators.
Maintenance work is a vital part of keeping the Research Wiki running optimally. Be careful to avoid creating more maintenance work through instruction creep. Organize when you can, but always keep the big picture in sight: we are here to create a resource for family history researchers. If you wish to contribute to FamilySearch Wiki in ways other than maintenance, please consider some suggestions of things you can do.
