If you're already familiar with wiki editing, feel free to refer to our Site-specific Style guidelines for specific site style conventions.

To include information about your Xbox Live gamertag on your User page add the markup below:


Substitute your Gamertag in place of XXXXXX. If you have any spaces in your Gamertag, you must use a plus symbol '+' instead of the spaces.

I hope you enjoy editing here! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! --FeralKitty

Style guidelines

Thanks for your contributions. It's helpful to avoid repeated linking, or repeated bolding (of title words), since it makes information hard to read. In general, only the first occurrence needs to be linked or bolded. --FeralKitty 07:33, 25 July 2007 (EDT)

General Store article

The article is correct as was. "Fir tree" appears before "Firebrand," alphabetically. The Glow Rocks and Fish Fountain don't show up at level 3. Please use care when copying/pasting, as to not delete correct information. Thanks! --FeralKitty 01:06, 18 August 2007 (EDT)

Please preview before saving

Please use the 'Show Preview' button before saving your changes to a page. This will help catch all sorts of problems with edits, such as incorrect image filenames, and save having you or others having to re-edit a page, to fix a new problem. --FeralKitty 12:57, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Again, please preview before saving to avoid obvious problems like this. Div tags should rarely be removed, as they control important layout information. Removing them affected the blue background. --FeralKitty 16:35, 20 October 2007 (EDT)

Please don't change meanings of links

There is a significant difference between pumpkin seed and pumpkin seed. The first link is intuitive. If someone needs to find out about a pumpkin seed, it's obvious that they just need to click on the link. The second link makes it appear that the link only talks about pumpkins, not seeds, and the visitor is less likely to click the link, where they would have learned details about the seed also. --FeralKitty 16:35, 20 October 2007 (EDT)

The importance of div markup

Div markup is used to define divisions in an article, such as for applying specific styles (layout, appearance) to an article. Some examples of how divs are used here at the wiki, are to apply indentation to requirements sections, specify background colors for sour/non-sour species sections, or stop images or Infoboxes from overflowing into the next section of an article.

Each div block starts with an opening <div ...> and ends with a closing </div ...>. Removing either the opening div or a closing div will introduce errors into an article. The best way to catch problems like this, are to use Show Changes and look at your edit differences to see if you've removed any div markup, or to use Show Preview and and check for visible layout problems.

In order to help keep pages all looking consistent, div markup shouldn't be removed from pages. Here's an example of an article with three things that are broken, due to div markup being removed. For comparison's sake, you can visually compare it to the corrected article to see the layout differences, when the div markup is replaced back in the document, as it originally was.

If you see a document that doesn't look right because of missing div blocks, the proper solution is to replace the missing divs that got removed in the first place. Never take out more (closing) divs to "fix" a problem, as it only introduces additional problems that also then need to be fixed.

If you have any questions about why a div is in a document, you can add a comment here, on an article's talk page, or PM one of the wiki staff. Thanks. --FeralKitty 18:01, 20 October 2007 (EDT)
