Help:Contents/Article Talk Pages

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to: navigation, search

Every article has a talk page. Here, users can discuss the article's content, bring up concerns, or ask questions.

Creating a Talk Page

You can find the talk page by visiting an article and clicking on the "discussion" tab to the right of the "Page" tab at the top left of the screen.

(Example)

If the word "discussion" is red, that means that no one has written on the page yet and you will be brought to an edit screen.

Rules

Article Talk pages are not for arguing with other users. If you are having problems with someone, visit Handling Disputes for more information.

Don't alter the content of an article's talk page. This includes deleting comments.

Also, do not use talk pages for making articles and dumping info that should be placed into article.

Leaving Comments

To write on an article's talk page, use the following format:

Code: ==Topic==

Write your comment/question/etc. here. --~~~~

Writing four tildes (--~~~~) attaches your signature and a timestamp to your comment, so other users will know who wrote it and when. --GlitterBerri 21:32, 25 December 2012 (EST)

Replying

You can reply to people's comments by using a : in front of your response. It will automatically indent your reply.

Code: Result:
Are you sure that location A_R00 is unused? I'm pretty sure that's just the forest on Outset Island. --~~~~

:It's definitely unused. I just checked, and the Outset Island forest looks totally different. --~~~~
