Welcome to the Community Portal!

This is a page where editors of WikiJET can inform other editors of what they are currently working on, coordinate their efforts and discuss issues surrounding the website.

  • If you are new to wikis, the first thing to know is just get in and try! If you make a mistake, other users can always fix it.
  • If you want help, try the New Editors page. Also have a look at the wikia tutorials and then have a play here.
  • Have a look at the list of things to do and here is a list of pages that have things to do.

  1. The first step to helping us out is to create an account. Using a consistant username rather than an anonymous IP address is a good thing. It allows us to recognise your contributions and it gives you some extra permissions on the site. Most importantly, it makes you seem more human and less like a machine!
  2. Next, create your userpage. Tell us something about you. Where you're placed, your home country, what type of school you teach in, your favourite kind of sushi - as much as you're comfortable with. This helps us put a personality to the name.
  3. Have a quick glance over the New Editors page and then start writing!

Got some questions? Then contact Boy.pockets or have a look at our WikiJET policies page.


  • If you want to discuss anything about an article, you can use the talk pages.

Community Focus

Here at WikiJET, we currently have four areas to focus on:

Any articles around these topics will be welcome. If you are a past/present/future ALT (especially a JET) in Japan, then articles about what you are concerned about is what we want. If you think we need it, then we do!

Teaching TipsEdit
