Well, hey

I couldn't help but notice, you're pretty new. You've made a few edits already, but I figure you could still use a welcome and maybe a bit of advise, explain a few things, answer questions and generally try to make your Team Fortress 2 Official Wiki experience a much nicer one.

First of all, Show preview. Important! Please use it when editing... well, any page. It lets you see a preview of the article, with your edit, so you can make sure you perfect it the first time around. If you don't use it, you could end up spamming edits.

Now, I'm gonna tell you about the 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" isn't good trivia... It tells you all about the quality we expect from our editors.

Keep both of these in mind with editing.

Speaking of editing, if you need something to do, 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. Images, coding, writing... I'm sure you'll pick up on something that suits you right in no time at all.

Recent changes patrol is an important-yet-simple task. Once you've learned the style guide a bit, that is. You can just refresh the log and revert any bad edits you see, piece of cake. We get our fair share of trolls and jerks on this wiki, and as an editor, you'll have to make a call once in awhile

However, if you're not in to making important calls, there's always teamwork! This is the Team Fortress Wiki after all. 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! /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 or admin 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!

Just to make sure I'm being clear, the Show preview thing applies to your user page as well. Please make sure you use it, no matter what you're editing! --SilverHammer 21:49, 2 August 2011 (PDT)

Um I hoped I helped

I uploaded your picture instead of using a link so I hoped I help and took out the words in the pic, if I didn't help you than I'm sorry. Painted Batter's Helmet C36C2D.pngViolencejr123 22:24, 2 August 2011 (PDT)

Please read the guidelines on the right-hand side of the upload page. Sadly, .wav files cannot be moved due to the wiki software being buggy, so I had to delete your uploaded .wav files. Please reupload them according to the guidelines specified there, as "User Yes-Man Something.wav". And don't try any funny business, because I know you're not programmed to be able to refuse :3 — Wind 00:25, 3 August 2011 (PDT)
