Welcome to SoDWiki!
Welcome! We're glad to have you here with us as we work together to develop this great resource, and all of us here at the Wiki hope that you will enjoy helping out here as much as we do! You may feel a little overwhelmed by the size and complexity of this project, but don't worry - it will become easier and clearer as you go along. If you need any help, feel free to ask any of the more experienced contributors to show you the ropes. We've added some basic links to help you get started:
- Any experimental edits can be tested at the Sandbox.
- Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date - it's always nice to know who you're talking with!
- Your user page is a great way to express yourself and allow other users to get to know you a little better.
- A list of basic commands and instructions on how to use them can be found in the Editing Help Section.
- One of the best places to get started is Help:How to help.
In case you get stuck, the following people have volunteered to assist new contributors, to give a helping hand and help you learn the ropes:
Finding your way around
Like most Wiki projects, SoDWiki has two kinds of pages: information pages that are part of the documentation, and community pages that are part of the building and operation of the wiki itself.
To find your way around the game documentation, simply enter a term into the search box on the left side of the screen.
The wiki's community pages include instructions, help pages, policies, guidelines, discussion forums, places to make requests, pages to report problems, and user pages. These are all pages which we use to develop the game documentation and to communicate with each other in that mission. Some directories to help you find your way around the community are:
- The SoDWiki:Community Portal lists some of the currently "hot" projects and discussions you can get involved in.
- The Wanted Pages section lists all of the pages that have been linked to, but still have no content. Simply click on a red link and wiki away!
- List of Policies
- General formatting guidelines
- If you come into conflict with another editor, discuss the content of the edit rather than the editor. Personal attacks are not acceptable.
