Frequently Asked Questions
What is AboutUs?
AboutUs is a free to use website where anyone can add information about almost anything. Originally intended for domain names and the businesses running them; we are now allowing pages for people, places, things, and more. Please feel free to add you own constructive thoughts, facts, and opinions to any page on the site.
AboutUs uses MediaWiki software, the same software that runs WikiPedia. A "wiki" is a website that allows people to add, modify, or delete content in collaboration with others. It uses a markup language called Wiki Markup. Although a bit confusing at first, it allows users to build structured pages without the need to know HTML. We will be adding a more user friendly editor in the near future for those that don't want to learn Wiki Markup though.

How do I add a page?
Adding a page is easy. First, login or create an account. Then simply search for the page using the search bar at the top of the site. If the page doesn't exist click the "Create Page!" button to create it. If the page does exist you can still add your own content to it by clicking the "Edit" button at the top.
How do I edit a page?
Editing an existing page is even easier than creating a new one. At the top of every page is an "Edit" button. Simply click it to start editing a page.
How much does it cost to use AboutUs?
Nothing! Adding and editing pages on AboutUs is free. In the future we may dream up some value added services but the main purpose of the site, adding and editing information, is completely free.
