- 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 button in the editing toolbar to quickly add a signature.

About your edits
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.

- Again, please use the Show Preview button before save page. Or use the edit button at the top of the page foe edit multiple sections. (2nd Case : here) Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 06:54, 11 November 2014 (PST)
- I must insist again that you use the Show preview button. Failure to do so may result in a block from editing. This is most prevalent on Slender Fortress page, you have made quite a number of edits to the page in short succession, which could easily be put into a single edit by editing the whole page, rather than individual sections. Additionally, your recent edit to the Ballon race talk page was in response to a message posted over 3 years ago. Pay attention to the dates of messages on talk pages when you respond to them, and if you believe that something is important enough to be brought up again, a new section should be made. --Omolong (talk) 16:08, 16 December 2014 (PST)
- Thank you for the reminder, I am new to this wiki and mainly play custom game modes.

In regards to custom gametypes pages
With regards to the edits you make to pages for various custom gametypes (community modifications), it seems that for a lot of them, the wiki's current standard is to base the information on the page on the "official release" of the mod, whatever that may be. After all, any number of people could make any number of changes to any of these mods, but we would be hard pressed to list all of those various changes with phrasing like "Some servers have...", etc. For instance, for VS Saxton Hale mode, the "official" release is here, and the information on the VSH page is based on the features of just this release. You seem to be adding information from arbitrary versions of mods to the pages, so please take a bit to reconsider your edits under this light (Hinaomi seems to have reverted a few of these, but please take note). In addition, including oddly specific information about a mod's details (such as this) is probably unnecessary, as the behavioral specifics of the mod can be summed up much more concisely (e.g. "Boss characters have varying reactions to backstabs, general damage, and other in-game events"). Thanks. -FlaminSarge (talk) 21:11, 15 November 2014 (PST)
