Here is some basic information on how you can help contribute to fleshing out the RPG-related glossary

 

The RPG Research Project open community website grows, and further helps others, through the help of volunteers worldwide.

If you are interested in helping contribute to the RPG Research Project's Glossary of RPG-related terms, people, and other items, please follow these steps:

1. Register your account for free on the RpgResearch.com website (free, non-commercial, non-spam, community).

2. After your account is created, and activated, login to the website.

3. Navigate to the Glossary section of the website: http://www.rpgresearch.com/documents/wiki/glossary

4. Look for any terms listed you would like to edit and click on that page's link, or if you do not see the term, see "create new glossary entry"

5. Edit the page by following the directions in the section "Edit the Existing Glossary Entry".

6. Click the "Save" button at the bottom  of the page/form to save the changes to the Glossary Entry.

Many thanks for your contribution to the community!
