WikiIslam:Required Reading for Editors
This page lists WikiIslam pages which users must read and comprehend before taking part in major discussions or editing, as well as some optional reading which will help users in editing and taking part in conversations here. Doing so will help editors and writers better understand the site's general approach, what is expected from them as contributors, and will also ensure that discussions do not retread issues that have already been covered. It will also, most importantly, set out the constraints and expectations for the content we hope to create and host here. Supplementary reading material of interest to contributors can be found under the "Miscellaneous" section.
These pages should be read by anyone who has just created an account or is considering doing so. Even visitors are encouraged to read these in order to get a better understand of the site.
