Welcome to our wiki

Hi Akdov! As we can see, you made your first edits to this wiki not long ago. It's OK to be new, and we encourage new blood to join and enrich our community. At the same time, we understand that no one is a perfect wiki editor straight off the bat, and, just in case you get stuck, here're some useful tips to help you out. Please take the time to read them.

General Editing
  • Never delete someone else's edits, comments, responses, etc. off community pages. To do so is considered vandalism.
  • If you write a comment it's useful to sign it so that other editors will know who wrote it. You can write "{{User:TripleU/Sig}} 10:13, 14 February 2017 (UTC)" at the end of your comment to sign it, or there's this button Sign.png on the top of the edit page that will sign for you if you want.
  • You may want to know how your edits will look before they have been saved, to make sure that nothing is wrong. Use the "Preview" button before the "Save" button - it's your friend!
  • If you're slow in your editing and there's an editing conflict, you might not understand the error that you get. The easiest way to overcome the edit conflict is to copy whatever you have been writing, go back with your browser, and then re-enter the edit page so that you can add your edits without deleting those made before yours.
  • The wiki is a collaborative project, please do your best to work well with fellow editors.

Further help for editing the wiki can be found on the Help page.

Project Mentor

Project Mentor has been set up to allow new wiki users to have a more experienced wiki veteran mentor them for the first few weeks. Visit its page for more information!

Your User Page

One of the great things about the wiki is that every user can have his or her own user page! These pages are located in the User: namespace — in other words, they all begin with "User:" (yours is User:Akdov). The appropriate place to write about yourself or your characters is on your user page, or a subpage of that page (e.g., User:Akdov/Your Character's Name). Please don't create pages about yourself outside the User: namespace. Those pages will be moved into subpages of your user page, and the original speedily deleted. If you want something to be deleted, use the speedy deletion page; that's why Criterion 7 was made.

User Talk Pages

Every user has a talk page, found by clicking the "discussion" link at the top of his or her user page, or by going directly to it (yours would be User talk:Akdov). If you have a question for someone, or want to say something to him or her, his or her user talk page is the place.

However, many users on the wiki have established specific guidelines for how their user talk pages are to be treated — where new comments should go, how they should be written, what is or is not okay to talk about, etc. Be sure to look for guidelines on the talk page before you leave a comment.

If you don't see any guidelines specified, the assumption is that you should place your comment at the bottom of the talk page, under a level 2 heading. This can be accomplished by clicking the "+" link next to the "edit" tab at the top of the talk page, or by manually typing in your message in this format:

==Message title==

Your message goes here

When replying to a comment already laid on the page, remember to indent it correctly: do it by inserting as many colons plus one to the message you're replying to at the begining of your message, like this:

==Message title==

Your message

:User's reply

::Your reply
The Suggestions Page

We know that as a new user, you want to share your ideas with us. But a community as big as ours has already seen all kind of suggestions, and it's possible that we've already seen something very similar to the ideas you have. Follow these simple guidelines to make sure that your suggestion gets the respect that it deserves:

  • We strongly recommend that you read the Suggestions Dos and Do Nots and the Frequently Suggested Ideas pages so that you will have an idea of what kind of suggestions are likely to be accepted and what kind are ridiculous in the eyes of the community. The pages might look long and time-consuming to read, but you will find them entertaining and helpful.
  • It may be helpful to wait a few days to get a feel for the wiki and the other users before subjecting your idea to any possible criticism. If you're unsure, the Suggestions Discussion page is good neutral territory to suggest, gather feedback, and refine your idea before officially submitting it.
  • Write your suggestion according to these steps. If it looks too complicated for you, ask for help.
  • You can't modify a suggestion that you've written once it has been posted on the Suggestions page. You can withdraw and resubmit it with changes later, but only do that if people liked your original suggestion while requesting changes, not if it was Spaminated.
  • If you get stuck at ANY point in writing your suggestion, ask for help. There's no shame in being new and after a few times, you'll get the hang of it.
Additional Contacts

If there's anything not covered by this introduction, you still have plenty of avenues to find some extra help. Project Welcome and Project Mentor are perfect starting points, but if you have something more pressing at hand, don't be afraid to get in touch with the administration staff.

Remember: These guidelines may look difficult to learn and follow, but they're mainly just common sense! Think about what you're going to say or do before you do it! If you don't make an effort to do so, then why would others have the obligation to be nice to you? Feel free to ask any Project Welcome member if you need help, that's our purpose anyways!

If you want to delete this text, just delete the {{Welcomenewbie}} line from your talk page. Remember that you can always have access to these tips on the Project Welcome/Welcomenewbie page.

Removal of group from suburb

Hi. I noticed your recent comments on the Spicer Hills suburb page. Might I suggest you check your group's talk page before jumping to conclusions about why your group was removed? A wiki-wide cleanup of the group listings was recently done by myself and several others (including Maverick), and we posted a notice on your group's talk page WAY back on January 28th, giving you two weeks to respond with a confirmation of your activity, yet we never received a response from a member of your group. Because we were trying to contact groups in as many ways as were reasonably possible, a notice was also posted to your suburb's talk page. Your group wasn't the only one removed, of course, and we've had this conversation with a few other people already. If you'd like to see a similar discussion, you can check Maverick's talk page for some more information about how we went about removing groups.

Ironically, Maverick posted the list of groups he removed from the suburb as a courtesy to those groups, since we were unable to reach them any other way, yet you've taken to insulting him for doing so. Considering we probably spent dozens of man-hours working on cleaning up those listings on the wiki over the course of a couple weeks, and that all it takes you is five minutes of effort to add yourself back (which could have been avoided had your group simply responded within the two weeks that they were given notice), I think you have no grounds for being upset. If anything, the fact that you decided to personally attack a friend of mine with baseless accusations and childish remarks gives me reason to be upset with you.

If you have any questions, let me know, and I'll be happy to respond. Hopefully any confusion has been cleared up at this point. In the meantime, I went ahead and moved your comment to the talk page for Spicer Hills, since it was extremely POV, and that page is supposed to be NPOV. I hope that you don't mind that I did so, since the reasons should be apparent. Aichon 17:30, 25 February 2010 (UTC)


Oh, my mistake, I thought someone was getting cute. Sorry about the head in the butt thing. Well, you're still invited to come by some bocce ball and beer. So, when I get beck into our wiki, I need to check the discussion page as well then? I think you can see our crew is really, really informal, and, well, kinda "special". We update only sporadically, however, members new and old are decidedly diligent about keeping our area clear for survivors.

Here's a question. Why was the "Groups" section eliminated from the main wiki board? That was some quality goof-off time right there ... just flippin' through groups' wiki pages. --Akdov 23:44, 25 February 2010 (UTC)

Nah, there's no need to respond on your group's talk page at this point, since any "damage" that might have been done has already been done. And yep, I know you guys are informal. One of my characters went through the heart of your territory a few months back (well, technically, two of my characters did, but one is with the MOB and was only interested in eating brains, so she didn't hear you guys chatting much), and you all seemed like a nice enough bunch of folks.
As for the groups section being eliminated, do you mean on the main page of the wiki? If so, I'm afraid I don't know. If you check the Recruitment page though, you can find a lot of groups. Alternatively, Category:Groups should have most of the groups listed in it, though I'm guessing those aren't quite what you had in mind. Aichon 01:52, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Your edit

here has been contested as Vandalism on the Vandal Banning page. Could you confirm why you made the edit?--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 21:15, 9 August 2010 (BST)

If you want to update danger reports for buildings in your area, don't click on the image, but rather the small (update) link in the top, right hand corner of the danger report. Then follow the instructions -- boxy talkteh rulz 08:38 10 August 2010 (BST)

Updating news and statuses

If you think the suburb's and buildings' statuses are incorrect, like in Spicer Hills' case, feel free to change them. Remember, reports from local survivors are more appreciated than reports heard on the radio. Instead of waiting for someone to update them, you can help contribute yourself!

Also, please observe the style currently in use. Style in the suburb's Recent News section is not the same as style in the building page. If you are unsure, just copy from older entries and update them accordingly. Thank you. -- Kittithaj 18:42, 18 August 2010 (BST)
