Finding your way

To get around Wikizilla, the best place to start is the Main Page, which shows you the latest news and has some important links on.

If you click on your name at the top of the page, that takes you to your user page, which is your profile. The discussion page of your user profile is where people will leave messages for you. Don't forget that works for other users too: you can visit their message walls and leave messages.

Editing

Anybody may edit almost any page simply by clicking the "Edit" button at the top. See help on Editing on how to format your edits. Whenever you edit a page, please add the reason into the summary box or choose a standard summary. If your edit is minor (just correcting spelling/grammar/links) then please tick the "minor" box on the edit page.

Some pages are protected. Some of these are protected so that only Administrators can edit them, and others are protected so that anonymous users or new users (registered within the past 4 days) cannot edit them. Most pages are protected because they are important and involve Wikizilla policy, others are protected to prevent them being vandalised.

If you register and sign in, you have access to a wider range of features, and are less restricted than anonymous members. You have the opportunity to be involved in our community, and keep your own Watchlist of pages you're interested in or have helped on. You can create your own user page (see User:Titanollante) and talk to the world about your technical interests.

Creating a page

If you try to visit a page that doesn't exist (example: Apple sauce) it will automatically bring you to the editing box where you can create the page, unless it is protected. See the Manual of Style for help on formatting your pages.

Speculation

Unlike Wikipedia, Wikizilla does allow speculative comments and rumours, so long as it is clear that they are such. If there is a rumour of a game coming out (for example), you may post about it so long as you quote your sources and clearly state that it is speculation. HOWEVER, speculation can NOT be put up in articles. Only forums, message boards, comment sections, and things of the like.

Vandalism

In a nutshell, posting offensive/racist/homophobic/xenophobic comments, swearing, and posting illicit/pornographic/suggestive images is strictly forbidden. Any user who does this can and will be blocked/banned.

Please read Policy for further information on what is/isn't allowed.
