Hey Fry, thanks for the message. I've corrected the mistake on the Skyrim Civil War article—nice catch. Regarding your question, you're free to edit the majority of pages on the wiki as it is. A few contentious or highly important articles are locked to normal users, but that's less than 1% of all pages. To get started, I would recommend switching your default editor from Visual to Source in your preferences, under the "Editing" tab. Source mode is a bit tougher to use than Visual, but it's far less prone to bugs and offers a much wider range of tools.
I've recently been working on an editing guide for new users, which I think you would find very helpful. If you're worried about breaking something the actual wiki pages, feel free to test whatever you want on the sandbox beforehand (ignore what's currently there, that page has already gone live). Many of the pages linked above should also be pretty useful in learning the general policies of the wiki, and how we tend to style our articles.
We have a team of patrollers who keep an eye on recent edits, so if you make a mistake they're likely to fix it and explain what you did wrong, and how to improve in the future. They would be glad to answer any wiki-related questions you have, so don't hesitate to inquire if you're unsure about something. And of course, I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have, as would the other administrators on the wiki. —Atvelonis (talk) 18:30, August 10, 2017 (UTC)
Hey Frytuurchef (you don't happen to be Dutch like myself by any chance eh?)
I saw your comment on Atvelonis' page and decided to give my two cents on contributing. I joined the wiki in 2015, my edits weren't really all that good, but they were appreciated, and the things I did wrong were corrected by the more experienced members.
Feel free to write and edit articles! (So long as it's allowed on the wiki, no mods and the like, but Atvelonis will help you with that, I'm sure) Many articles still need a lot of information, so any help is appreciated.
Happened to see your question about the sandbox—decided to explain to you what it is. The sandbox is essentially a type of "playground" where you can practice with editing or work on projects, without it affecting any content on the wiki. If you want to edit an article, but you're not too sure if you're doing it correctly, try it on the sandbox first! Let me know if you've got any questions.
As Carlo said, a sandbox page can basically be seen as a test page, where you can practice editing. You can create your own sandbox page, by adding a new page and naming it User:Frytuurchef/Sandbox, this gives you your very own Sandbox page which can be used for practice.
- Looks good. I've cleaned it up a bit, but you should be good to go. Let me know if you've got any other questions.—CarloV3r (talk) 15:20, August 12, 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, didn't notice it myself.
