On Wikipedia the words "be bold" means that if you see something that needs to be done on, go for it! This can mean anything from fixing an incorrect spelling to making a new article.

While you should edit boldly, you should also follow Wikipedia's guidelines on reliable sources, notability, and neutral points of view. Remember, your edits can be always reverted and removed, but no need to be upset if this occurs. Just make sure not to edit recklessly or disruptively.
