Here are some tips for people who edit articles: (feel free to add your tips as comments)

  1. Select "Monobook" as skin in your preferences.
    This will free you of the narrow Wikia layout, and prevent some wide-tables being obscured by the Wikia-menu on right.
  2. Uncheck "Enable Rich Text Editing" in your preferences, to disable this feature.
    this will prevent code-corruption on pages that use special coding using templates.
  3. Check "Show preview on first edit" in your preferences, to enable this feature.
    This will start a preview of the page as soon as you enter edit-mode, really handy on new pages with preloaded text.
  4. Check "Mark all edits minor by default" in your preferences, to enable this feature.
    This is great for people who follow page histories, because most of your edits will be minor, which you can always change per edit...
    (see the checkbox under summary-line)

  5. You should now be able to use wikEd in your preferences, instead of the RTE.
    I have just added it as a gadget for all users on this wiki.
