Any reader is welcome to translate the following (leaving the English in place to help those of us - currently the majority - who think much faster in English than we do in Maori):
Creating an article where no link already
1. Copy this to the top of your User page (replacing the three dots with your username):
<small>Articles I started or plan to start soon</small>
2. Save your page.
3. Click on that link; use the resulting page for all words you plan to write articles for. It doubles as a list of your achievements when the completed jobs are moved above the "planned" heading. Copy the headings and model article from User:Robin_Patterson/Taku_mea if you like.
Full explanations of how to edit and navigate can be found on the main English Wikipedia and related pages, eg:
Mo taku hē - until there is a Maori version of other "help" topics, please see en:Help:Contents.
A translation of that English version here would be useful.
