Hi! Welcome!

I've noticed that you're pretty new! I've also noticed a couple of your edits aren't exactly in-line with the style guide. So I'm jut gonna drop you a couple tips, alright? c:

I know what you're asking yourself right now, "What's a style guide!?" The whole help center is important, but the style guide is especially important to editors, old and new alike. It explains what "X of Y" means, why "This hat has been inside a crate" or "Pyro must be from this location" aren't good trivia... I'll give you the short version, but it'd be great if you read it anyway. Observations and speculation aren't trivia.

When someone undoes your edit, it doesn't mean "Hey, I better add that back!" Don't worry about losing your cool, a lot of new editors do it. Just try to abide. If your edit was reverted, there was a reason for it. You're better off asking the person who reverted it why they did it. If you don't, it usually devolves in to stupid edit wars, and just makes problems for everyone involved. Please don't forget this. Edit wars are bad.

If you need something to do that isn't centered around strategy, you can give the task list a look. I find that the easiest edits for a new user to handle are stub expanding and article cleaning, but you should play with everything and find something that you really like! This wiki has all sorts of outlets for every kind of talent. I'm sure you'll pick up something you like in no time at all.

Recent changes patrol is a good thing to do too, once you've learned the style guide a bit. You can just refresh the log and revert any bad edits you see.

New editors are always welcome in the IRC. It's a chat room for editors to coordinate edits, help each other or just sit and casually discuss the world over coffee and/or tea like gentlemen. It's a good place to learn things while getting yourself known to the community. We are cool people! /me leather jacket

You have any questions, don't you hesitate to ask! Ask anyone! I'll be happy to help, but if you're more comfortable with a moderator helping you, you can hit them up. You'll find them with green names on the recent changes log, or in the IRC. They have their own channel, you can get to it through the main IRC. Just click the #tfwikistaff link in the subject header.

Have a good time editing, all right? Talk to people. I hope to see you around!
