How you can contribute

Don't be afraid to edit – anyone can edit almost every page, and we are encouraged to be bold! Find something that can be improved and make it better - for example, fixing spelling, grammar, rewriting for readability, adding content, or removing non-constructive edits. If you wish to add new facts, please try to provide references so they may be verified.

Remember – you can't break Cvillepedia; all edits can be reversed, fixed or improved later. Cvillepedia is allowed to be imperfect. So go ahead and edit an article!
