Welcome to this wiki! Dwarf Fortress rapidly becomes more complicated, and we're always glad to have new writers.
Since we prefer that you try to follow our wiki's standards, we've made a list of basic guidelines. This is a template.
- To let us know who you are, please sign your posts on discussion pages by typing
- Never 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. Put exactly one empty line between comments by different users but do not use blank lines inside of a comment. If your comment has no indents, use
<br>after each line.
- 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. Don't put things in the wrong sections. If necessary, create a section.
- Most importantly, read and follow the rules. Really. Read them.
Dude, you have done over 100 edits over the last few hours. You should probably take a break and just play for a bit. Thanks for doing all of the work no one else did though, I'm sure everyone appreciates it.--Destor 15:19, 29 December 2008 (EST)
- Thanks, it's slow here at work during the holidays so I really have the time to spare at the moment (and editing a wiki is a lot less likely to get me in trouble than, say, playing DF :) ) ... it's a great game and this is a great resource for it so I'm just trying to help whatever way I can. Regards! JubalHarshaw 15:20, 29 December 2008 (EST)
- P.S. Dude, you still have the welcome text. Eh?
Please don't delete my contributions willy-nilly
Hi, I created the short article for Braies. You made it a redirect to clothing. I assume you didn't do it thinking it would bother me or anyone else, but I hope that in the future you'll remember to tell me when you delete my articles. Since Braies at least now forwards to a page that says what Braies actually are (in the game), I don't really want to make this a big deal--I'm perfectly happy with the edit. I just would have appreciated the courtesy of some notification. It's an unpleasant feeling when you come to edit an article you started and find it suddenly no longer exists. Thanks.--Jpwrunyan 18:14, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
- Thanks for the follow-up reply. If I were offended by anything it would have been just feeling left out of the loop. So to put it another way, please keep me in the loop. This was an improvement but it wasn't immediately obvious to me. If there's ever a case that I don't see the logic to an edit, a note will help preclude time spent trying to puzzle out why the edit was made. Furthermore, it will insure that in the future I will know what to do next time. Again, it's not an issue of having "my stuff" edited so much as not knowing why it was edited. Semantic note: "my stuff", "my article", etc. == my contributions. Anyway, despite this long message, there's really no hard feelings behind it. --Jpwrunyan 02:58, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
- Hi, thanks again. No worries. I don't think there was anything wrong at all with your first response. I could have chosen my words better the first time so if there was any misunderstanding it was my fault (or the fault of fatigue!). For my part I will try to be more clear (and less confrontational) when communicating with other editors! As well as putting clothing articles in the right place...--Jpwrunyan 10:59, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
