Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since you should try to follow wiki standards, and you probably don't know ours yet, we've made a list of basic guidelines. Note that this is a template, not a customized message for you.

  • To tell us who you are when you talk, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing --~~~~ after your posts. This can also be inserted with the Button sig756222.png button if JavaScript is enabled.
  • Don't put a question mark in the title of a page. Question marks mess things up, and your page will be moved to a different name.
  • When making comments on a talk page, use one more colon before each line in your comment than was used in the comment you reply to. In general, put exactly one empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment.
  • Avoid making many small edits to a page. Instead, try to make one large edit. This makes the history of the page a lot easier to read.
  • Don't edit the user page of another user. If you want to tell them something, add the comment to their talk page.
  • If you put a comment at the bottom of a talk page with section headers, you've probably put it in a section. Putting things in the wrong sections is confusing. You can create a section!
  • Generally, read and follow the rules. They're like a little constitution, except not boring! Really, read them.

Key template[edit]

Thanks for fixing up some occurrences of < and > - it turned out that the issue was caused by this change that I made to {{key/0}}, which I've fixed. I'm probably also going to undo some of your changes in an attempt to make things clearer for editors - &lt; and &gt; are fine with me, but I had to look up what &#8203; was, and I'd rather use {{k|<}} and {{k|>}} in most cases if they work. But thank you for tracking down and fixing all of the pages that you did! —Lethosor (talk) 23:45, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Seconded! (and said as much in a couple edit summaries.) Btw, &#8203;, aka "number space", is a great tool. Just used it recently to force a bit more space in a table header to make the data in the cells in that column format more cleanly. Albedo (talk) 00:10, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
