Welcome to the WarWiki! We are seeking to build a Wikia about all aspects of real warfare. Therefore, this site is not a place for fictional wars; such articles can be added to their appropriate wiki, i.e Star Wars-related wars go to Wookieepedia, or the Star Trek Wars-related wars go to Memory Alpha, not here.
Welcome words Edit
By all means be bold in your edits, adding content and information that you believe others will want to know about.
But please also remember to collaborate with others, be friendly, discuss differences of opinion, and be mindful of the work others have done on this project before you got here. Remember that they are, like you, volunteers and fans, and they like what they've done here. Approach your edits in the spirit of improving the wiki, rather than "putting your stamp on it" and your presence here will be a blessing, not one that is resented.
Try to be accurate in your statements and leave links and/or other verifiable source information in articles you edit. Feel free to add your opinions and feelings where it's appropriate and where it's clearly labeled as such. (Unlike Wikipedia articles, Wikia has many opportunities to share your point of view.)
For first-time editors Edit
Is this your first time here? Please consider feeling your way around, learning how to edit by hitting the "edit" tab, and not starting off your career as an editor by vandalizing pages (if you add things to pages to "test" how to edit, it's vandalism if you hit the 'save page' button.)
There will be a great temptation to make a dozen edits in your first hour or two here. That's GREAT! But please make them quality edits that will make you a valued member of a team, not a "spoiler" who ruins what others have worked hard to create.
While it's not required before you start editing, registering and adopting a User name is a good idea. When people see your IP number - rather than a User name - they may assume you are here to vandalize pages, not contribute. If you are here to contribute, you'll want to establish a "good name". You don't have to, of course.
Words of Wisdom Edit
- Start editing.
- Add articles and improve others.
- Don't blank information and don't add nonsense.
