How to edit or create a page ?
By clicking here, a detailed help page from the Wikipedia will open in a new window. Notice that the Wikipedia is a website similar to the Marine Observers' Log wikisite but more popular. The edit of wiki pages is exactly the same.
Why to create an account ?
You don't have to log in to read the Marine Observers' Log wikisite. However, you must log in to edit articles on it. To create an account, send a request to with a copy to your Port Meteorological Officer. The aim is to keep a track of the modifications you do. When you log in, you have an access to a personal wiki page having your name as title (see at the top of the window). You can publish what you wish on this personal page.
How to quickly create a new page ?
This action is so easy to do that it is disconcerting for some of us. Just edit a page: it can be your personal one. Write the name of the page you wish to create between double square brackets in it. Save the page. The link to the new page - which doesn't exist yet - appears. Click on it, the edit form of the new page is then opening.
