Maintenance helps wiki

The Maintenance consists of the set of tasks to keep the wiki clean, up-to-date and to ensure that our content is in line with the standards of the wiki.

Users are encouraged to contribute to the maintenance areas. However, some tasks are assigned to certain groups of users. For example, Administrators help keep the wiki clean of vandalism by blocking spam and malicious editors. Certain basic maintenance tasks can also be assigned to a bot, which can edit a large number of pages in a short space of time.

Special Pages is a very useful page that gives access to many maintenance and administration pages of the wiki. It is also in the sidebar. Remember that basic maintenance edits, such as correcting a link or spelling mistakes, are usually marked as a minor edit (m).
