Thanks for your edits! We hope you'll keep on editing with us. This is a great time to have joined us, because now you can play the Game of Rassilon with us and win cool stuff! Well, okay, badges. That have no monetary value. And that largely only you can see. But still: they're cool!
We've got a couple of important quirks for a Wikia wiki, so let's get them out of the way first.
British English, please
We generally use British English round these parts, so if you're American, please be sure you set your spell checker to BrEng, and take a gander at our spelling cheat card.
Spoilers aren't cool
We have a strict definition of "spoiler" that you may find a bit unusual. Basically, a spoiler, to us, is anything that comes from a story which has not been released yet. So, even if you've got some info from a BBC press release or official trailer, it basically can't be referenced here. In other words, you gotta wait until the episode has finished its premiere broadcast to start editing about its contents. Please check the spoiler policy for more details.
Other useful stuff
Aside from those two things, we also have some pages that you should probably read when you get a chance, like:
- the listing of all our help, policy and guideline pages
- our Manual of Style
- our image use policy
- our user page policy
- a list of people whose job it is to help you
If you're brand new to wiki editing — and we all were, once! — you probably want to check out these tutorials at Wikipedia, the world's largest wiki:
Christmas cheer Edit
Survivor Wiki Edit
Sorry, I don't know where else to contact you.
Can I ask you why you blocked me? :| I didn't post any spoilers for any ongoing or upcoming season.
And if I did, which I didn't, then I apologize. I should at least have been given a warning. A fucking yearlong ban without any warning whatsoever is crazy and completely out of the ordinary.
- You created an article for Inside Survivor, a known spoiler source, and included production spoilers on it. Bwburke94 ~ Creator of All Things Brilliant! ~ 00:01, August 18, 2015 (UTC)
Titan Back-up Comics Edit
Hey, I just wanted to tell you that we are currently sending down a final vote on the Titan back-up comics down at Thread:177099. You seemed to have a pretty strong opinion on the issue, so I just wanted to make sure that you knew that the vote was happening. The polls currently tally to three votes for the back-up strips being valid and five for them being invalid. All votes have gone towards making the WeLoveTITANS comics invalid. If you want a say in the matter, there is a week and three days left on voting. Sorry for the bother! OS25 (talk to me, baby.) 21:25, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
Forum posts Edit
Hi! I've been meaning to address an issue with you for some time.
In your discussion posts, you have a habit of posting in what sounds like an official tone of "voice". This could give new/inexperienced users the idea that your comments are backed up by authority, when in fact you, as a non-admin, are stating your opinion of a policy in question. Instead of making flat statements about policy, it might be best to preface your comments with something like, "I think such and such policy says..." That way, if you happen to be wrong, an admin can easily correct your opinion. Flat statements that are incorrect may have to be removed.
In addition, please make sure you read a post carefully before answering. A couple of times, you have misread the post of an experienced user (who already knows the policies) and answered with a basic statement of policy, not realizing that the user was asking for something completely different.
Moving pages Edit
Hi! Please note that, per Thread:128198, only admins are permitted to move pages. The thread explains the actions that non-admins can take to help out the process. Thanks. Shambala108 ☎ 13:34, October 29, 2015 (UTC)
Forum posts revisited Edit
Hi! I've already told you once before to moderate your tone in forum posts. You as a non-admin are not in the position of stating facts about the wiki rules. The fact that another user had to clarify your post (in Thread:192548) shows how other users might misinterpret your stance. Leave the admin jobs to the admins and stick to arguing your opinion on forum posts. Thanks. Shambala108 ☎ 01:48, March 25, 2016 (UTC)
I am hesitant to let out a major real-world spoiler in a thread whose name does not imply one will be found. So let me answer your curiosity here and put a link there in case others are wondering. There are two major species in Weapons of Past Destruction: the Unon and the Lect for the first 4 out of 5 issues. The Lect are presented as a robotic race with Terminator-style POV screen statistics. This is not just cliffhangers: the Lect are everywhere and everyone calls them Lect. There is one frame in Issue 1 showing an Excrothian and one frame in Issue 4 showing a Lect with the armoured suit open. For people with a very good visual memory, this was a hint, but I did not catch it. In Issue 5, it turns out that the Lect are the Excrothians. After their planet was destroyed by the Unon, they need these robotic costumes to survive. Lect, on the other hand, is the name of their god of war. Amorkuz ☎ 06:31, July 7, 2016 (UTC)
