 +====== Creating a New Topic ======
 +If you don't find a topic (a.k.a. article) for a given CV or other related subject, and you are a registered member ([[how_to_register|How to Register]]),​ you can create a new topic.
  
 +Topics should be limited to discussions of particular CVs, processed data (light curves or spectographs) in support of these discussions,​ and techniques for collecting this data. When creating topics, star names should conform to AAVSO designations.
 +
 +===== To Create a Topic: =====
 +  - Navigate to the "CV Template,"​​ select the "edit this page" tab and copy the template body.
 +  - Use the search box, search for the new topic you wish to create (ex. XX-Ari). This will take you to a blank page.
 +  - Select the "​​create topic" tab at the top of the page. (The new topic will use your search text for its title.)
 +  - Paste a copy of the CV Template into the page and save.
 +  - Edit the topic as necessary.
