Hello, ArguedOyster!

Welcome to the Team Fortress 2 Official Wiki!

Here are a few links to get you started:

  • If you're not too familiar with editing wikis, you might like to start with Help:Editing.
  • If you already are familiar with wikiediting, you might want to try Help:Style guide.
  • Recent Changes will let you see others' contributions as they happen.
    • To make Recent Changes more useful for all users, remember to provide an edit summary in the "Summary" field before you save your changes.
    • You can set the wiki to prompt you for a summary in your preferences.
  • When posting on an article's Talk page you should add four tilde symbols or ~~~~ onto the end.
    • This will add a signature and timestamp to your comment so others can easily tell who posted it.
    • Any new sections on an article's Talk page should be added to the bottom of the page and not to the top.
    • When editing normal article pages, don't sign your contributions.
    • You can use the Signature Icon.png button in the editing toolbar to quickly add a signature.
  • If you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to leave a message for a staff member.
  • If you have trouble with anything on the wiki or you're not sure about a specific topic, feel free to join the IRC.
  • You can also customize your user page if you like.
    • When uploading images for use on your user page, please add the prefix User ArguedOyster to the file's name.
    • Additionally, if you would like to add any self-made content to the wiki, please do so by adding the prefix User:ArguedOyster/ to the page title when you create the page.

Once again, welcome to the Team Fortress 2 Wiki!

Show preview

Pictogram info.png Please make use of the Show preview button. It gives you a preview of the edit you are making, allowing you to perfect your changes before you save the page. You can edit the whole article by clicking the edit button at the top of the page, which is preferable to editing multiple sections consecutively. — The preceding assigned comment was added by Tark {Finish Him!Contribs} 09:59, 22 July 2016 (PDT)

What if I'm a dumbass?

I try to use the show preview thing, but sometimes (well almost all of the time), I'm a dumbass and skip like one or two minor errors that I notice instantly once I save it. Obviously, the best answer is to just simply be more careful and NOT be a dumbass, but one in a thousand words misspelled is a .1% error which seems reasonable enough (BTW this goes more for Talk pages, but sometimes for an actual edit too although I try to spend more time on that). If it's not extremely important, do I go back and edit it or do I just ignore it? ArguedOyster (talk) 06:53, 13 June 2017 (PDT)

Correction always has priority over anything else, like multiple edits. We just want to make sure you use the show preview button to avoid unnecessary edits, but of course everybody is doing mistakes so don't be afraid to correct yours. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk | Contribs} 07:38, 13 June 2017 (PDT)
