Psychology Wiki

aka A Fandom User

Hello, and welcome to the project,

We would like contributions to be of a professional, scientific, and reliable nature. To that end we encourage users to register and use their real identity. While this is not a current requirement of participation on the Psychology Wiki, we believe that by registering and being identified, we can engage in more collaborative, fruitful, and professional exchanges.

Would you like to register and have a username? It would help us to be able to talk to you and remember you if you had a permanent name instead of just a number!

It also allows you to choose the 'skin' for your page. (Choosing Monobook skin in your preferences greatly improves the professional layout of pages)

Here are some useful links we leave for all new contributors:


Even if you are experienced on Wikipedia, I suggest you read our beginners guide, as we do a lot of things differently on the Psychology Wiki.

It is important to understand that the pages of Wikipedia reproduced here are used as placeholders. We expect 2/3rds of them to be substantially editied or rewritten so do feel free to change them markedly to fit the needs of the site.

Tip: you can sign your username on talk pages (like this one) using four tildes ~~~~; this will automatically produce your name, date and time-stamp. Three tildes will just produce your name.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our Administrators.

Please Note:
You are welcome to practice editing the Psychology Wiki. But rather than disrupt existing articles it is best to use the a Sandbox, an area especially set aside so you can experiment

There are two ways to get to a sandbox:

  • If you just want to play click here to go to the sandbox. This is a public space and you will lose what you put in here quickly, as other people come to practise.
  • If you are clear you want to contribute you may register with the site. Click on "create an account" on the top right hand corner of this page.
    • Here is where you sign up. This is free and easy to do. With the account comes your own user name, user page and your own sandbox. In your own sandbox, things you add will be kept for longer, as others are unlikely to edit it. Once signed up you can get to your sandbox by typing in:

Just towards the top left hand corner of both these page is a link which says "edit" click this and wait for the edit page to load.

Note the editing space inside the boxed outline and the line of buttons, with pictures and letters, above and the "Save page" buttons below the frame. You sometimes have to scroll down to the latter if you are working on a small screen.

In the box highlight any existing text and delete. You are now ready to start.

Click the "save page" if you want to save your edits or hit your back button to exit
