A series of guided lessons with kdarrow in general editing through the Vault Academy.

Instructions[edit | edit source]

10 Rescue from Paradise.png

Mentees can progress through the lessons at their leisure. The program is intended to take approximately one month's time, but no pressure, there is no deadline. Each lesson ends with a tiny quiz. Once complete, you will receive a fun badge on your scorecard! And after all lessons are complete, you can take an overview test and then be awarded a diploma and a place of honor among your peers in the Ceremonial Hall of the Vault Academy!

We can chat via my talk page or through the Nukapedia Discord. Feel free to message me (kdarrow#2077) anytime and feel comfortable asking me as many questions as you need to in order to feel confident and excited as a Nukapedian! Welcome to Vault Academy!
