- Can the whole world see what I have written?

- Can I protect some pages?
- Yes. There are namespaces reserved for members and staff. See Permissions for working examples.

- How do I find information about special templates that help me draw tables and alike?
- All available templates are bundled in the category "templates": Category:Templates. You get more usage-infos on the different templates on their pages.
- How do I have to proceed to do fancy stuff with documents/images and alike?
- There are specific help pages on mediawiki for that
- How can I link on swissbib.ch or other resources without the risk of broken links?
- Wiki has the concept of interwiki links that lets you build url by adding a term to a previously defined namespace:
- mw = lets you find mediawiki-pages
- chb = places a search on "swissbib.ch"
- wikipedia = lets you search in the English wikipedia
