User talk:Nimblewright

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.
  • Read the site announcements regularly, they contain important info.
  • Check up on the manual of style occasionally, it's still being written, but will contain important style info soon.
  • Some pages have version-specific articles, (ie: 40d, 23a...) when creating a redirect from the mainspace to a version specific article, use cv: instead of the version namespace.
"You have been processed! Go forth, now, and edit!" --Savok

Can you please NOT create entirely empty pages? It removes red links which show a page that needs adding. If you absolutely MUST do this, add {{NewVersionStub}} to it, which puts it in a category for later reference. --Eagle0600 08:43, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Right, sorry, didn't know that. Will refrain in future. --Nimblewright 08:49, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

That's okay. Also, if you edit my user talk page rather than your own, I'll get notified. --Eagle0600 10:50, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, turns out the admins want empty pages, so go ahead. --Eagle0600 19:51, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

template:water FAQ on 40d:channel page[edit]

The Water and Magma FAQ boxes at the bottom of the article link to 
the DF2010 version of this wiki and I don't know how to fix them...

Hi, welcome to the wiki. If you "edit" and look at the code in that bottom section, you'll find something like {{Water FAQ}}. Any time you see something in double fancy brackets, like {{X example}} (rather than double square brackets [[x example]] ), it's a "template", a special wiki call-function, and can be found under the page "template:x example". So you go there, and edit the redlinks in that - and every page that uses that template now calls to the fixed page, all good. In this case, the page is template:water FAQ (capilization after the first letter is significant!). This is also how the {{av}}, Verify, the {{subst:hi}} I just posted at the top of this page and other similar "fancy" inserts work. Readya later.--Albedo 15:55, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
