Hello, FairFire!

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 FairFire 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:FairFire/ to the page title when you create the page.

Once again, welcome to the Team Fortress 2 Wiki!

You are caught in the common trap of not knowing what “References” Sections are for on standard Wiki articles; these are where editors put citations that support the claims or statements made in the article, NOT references made by the subject itself. Citations and the dependent Reference section is best covered here: Wikipedia:Citing sources
The sort of “reference” you were attempting usually covered under “Trivia”, but with quite a bit different style. It is presumed that most readers are familiar with the practice. Consider reading the following:

The bit about Deus Ex: Human Revolution was already covered in the introduction.

Also, in AWPer Hand you weren’t setting up the Template right; and, IIRC, all unique items at this time are generally unmarketable, so the particular comment isn’t needed. Mikado282 (talk) 20:17, 8 September 2014 (PDT)
