Before editing, be sure to read the wiki's policies. Please sign your name on Talk and vote pages using four tildes (~~~~) to automatically produce your name and the current date. Be sure to verify your e-mail address in your preferences. Before attempting any major article rewrites please read the layout guide. If you have any questions, check out the policy and help pages (see here for editing help), add a question to the Community portal, view the forum or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!
Please, when editing articles, keep in mind that:
- a) full numbers are prefered. (e.g. nine is prefered over 9; the exception goes for years and dates)
- b) keeping the last or the first and last name of an individual keeps the article more encyclopedic. (e.g. Rubeus Hagrid is prefered over Hagrid; the exception goes when you are refering to the same individual multiple times on one sentence)
- c) images make the article more enjoyable to read. (the only exception is when they are too much and are crowding the article)
- d) do not over-simplify sentences.
- e) british english is prefered over american english (e.g. colour is prefered over color)
- f) do not pipe links to unrelated articles (e.g. DO NOT DO this: [[Harry Potter|Luna Lovegood]]. DO this: [[Luna Lovegood]] or, incase you cannot put the article's name on the link, [[Walburga Black|his mother]]
