*General Maintainers* -- you can click on the `edit` tab to update this page.
Users with *General Maintainer* status will eventually be able to update many of POI Factory's reference pages.
**Tips for General Maintainers**
* Small, incremental changes are usually best
* Seek feedback on your ideas ahead of making larger changes
* Always enter a log message to help others understand the reason for a change
You can view change history and log messages for a page by clicking the `revisions` tab.
It's a good idea to review this before making new changes.
If more than one person attempts to edit at the same time, only the first user's changes will be saved. Other users will get a warning message when they attempt to save their changes.
This is one reason why it's a good idea to make changes in small chunks.
Reference pages use a subset of "markdown" tags for formatting. Here are some of the basics:
Surround text with asterisks for emphasis
> \*\*\*bold & italics\*\*\*
> ***bold & italics***
Make bullet lists by starting a line with an asterisk
\* first point
\* second point
\* third point
* first point
* second point
* third point
