Friendly reminder

Just a few stylistic things I wanted to point out to you, based on some of your recent edits.

  • Spell incantations are generally to be italicized, as they are in the books.
  • Putting in underscores when making a wikilink is unnecessary, and is in fact counterproductive to editing (as it makes the wikicode look more confusing). For example, you don't need to type out [[Harry_Potter_Trading_Card_Game|Harry Potter Trading Card Game]], just [[Harry Potter Trading Card Game]] is fine.
  • I'm not sure if you did it intentionally or if it was one of the many errors that the wiki software seems to have, but putting in unnecessary HTML as you did in this edit is particularly frowned upon, as it adds nothing to the visible page but makes it confusing to edit. As I said, I'm willing to believe you did that accidentally, as such things have been known to happen.

Also, welcome! I'm not trying to be harsh or anything, just giving you some pointers. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 06:06, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
