Enchanting

Heh, so much fun. I saw that I'd left the old version of the text in the "special cases" section, and hit the edit button, got to that part of the text and was like, WTF, this looks right. So, fun. You like the new layout and think everything's clear? I still think the page could use a bit more love, maybe some of the copy clarified once we get everything straightened out. justin talk 16:27, 19 July 2006 (EDT)

Welcome!

Just wanted to say, you rule, & welcome to KP. I hope you stay for a while, we need contributors pretty badly. who is Ulthripe reads this 18:35, 1 July 2006 (EDT)

Thanks very much for the welcome!

I'm still getting my feet wet with using Wiki format, but hopefully I can make some worthwhile contributions!

Here here, welcome and all that. Thanks for the shot of life... Now if something could just inspire me to start pumping out pages like that... justin talk 13:30, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
As an FYI, the 'procedure' for talk pages is to reply on the talk page of the user your comment is directed at. The reason for this is because when a user adds a comment to your talk page, you will receive a notification at the top of the page when you log in, informing you that you have messages waiting. Yes, it can be goofy & leave conversations detached, no it doesnt really matter if you dont adhere to this design.
If I may be pedantic for just one more moment, I feel the best way to learn to wiki is by hitting the 'edit' tab on other pages, and looking to see what others have done. Be it on Krakiipedia or another wiki, you can learn a lot from others. There is plenty of how-to help out there as well. Also, if you have any questions, Andy & I are always happy to help, you will find my contact information on my user page. Again, welcome, I'm sure any contributions you make will be worthwhile. We hope you stay! who is Ulthripe reads this 06:08, 3 July 2006 (EDT)

Thank you.

That pretty much says all of it. I think your additions are worthwhile, and, echoing Ulthripe, welcome. -Andy talk 19:40, 4 July 2006 (EDT)

Sourcing

Inline sourcing just disrupts the flow of articles. The most appropriate method would be using the reference tags provided by the Cite extension to indicate the source in a non-intrusive manner. If information is sourced to a post, the best thing to do would be to create a saved post article with the contents of the post and link to it as a related article at the bottom of the article in question. - Oliver Talk 05:05, 30 December 2006 (EST)

I agree that sourcing is important. We don't simply not give a source if the source is the boards, however, the traditional method of sourcing by linking the source isn't feasible with a forums post due to the fact that they get deleted with age, hence, we create saved post articles like the one Ollie made. That being said, perhaps the admins should collaborate and make a standard for sourcing with an appropriate help article? I'll go ahead and take steps to assure the help articles are expanded.

Certainly won't hurt anything. Rail 10:52, 3 January 2007 (EST)
