More Stuff You Can Do

Tips

  • Use good grammar and keep things formal – Although this rule largely does not apply to talk pages and user pages, we are a serious wiki that demands fairly good grammar and a lack of silliness. (It is exceptionally noteworthy to avoid use of the word "you" in articles, as it, too, is rather informal.) Disobeying this tip, however, is not that big of a deal, as other users can easily translate informal content to normal formalities.
  • Categorize articles – When creating an article, you should add it to one of our many categories. You can place in article into a category by writing that category's title in front of the word "Category:" all in hyperlink-like brackets; for instance, writing [[Category:Characters]] at the bottom of an article will add it to the characters category.
  • Italicize titles of games, game series, TV shows, and movies – Once again, this does not apply to user pages and talk pages, but it is only grammatically correct to italicize the titles of video games, video game series, television programs, and films. In the editing language of wikisyntax, italicization is done by surrounding words with two commas in editing sources; for instance, writing ''Super Mario Bros.'' while editing an article will make it appear as Super Mario Bros. in-article. You can also do the same thing with <i> and </i> marks; <i>Super Mario Bros.</i> appears in-article as Super Mario Bros.
  • Mark all images used in your user space as personal images – Here at the MarioWiki, we refer to images used only in user space as personal images. When uploading one of these personal images, please label it with {{personal-image|Ultramariologan/Welcome}} (or {{personal-image-sig|Ultramariologan/Welcome}}, if you intend on using the personal image in your signature) to assure it is recognized as a personal image. By the way, you are only allowed to upload four personal images, as well as a smaller fifth one for use in signatures.
  • Avoid uploading images you don't intend to use – New users will often upload images and never use them, usually to simply test out Special:Upload. Although testing is a perfectly fine thing to do, you should most of the time avoid uploading images that will not be used.

Feel free to delete this message whenever you want after you finish reading it because you are free to do anything with your user space. I hope you have a good time in the wiki and have fun contributing!

If you have more questions, you are free to ask me at my talk page and I will respond on your talk page. Thanks for reading, have fun contributing, and once again, welcome!

Have a nice day and have a good future,
