Welcome to WiKirby![edit]

Hi there Lemmykoopy, and welcome to WiKirby! We hope you'll enjoy editing here; check out our help guide for editing tips and information on do's and don'ts. Also, please keep in mind that all edits are subject to moderation until you become autoconfirmed (5 edits and 24 hours)! If you need any help, just contact one of the administrators. Thanks! — The WiKirby Staff

Your Edits[edit]

Some things:

  1. Before you make any more edits again, please read the Quality Standards page and pay attention to those standards. Your edits, and your pages are vastly inadequate in meeting the standards. If you make any more sub-standard edits or pages, you may be blocked.
  2. Please do not take images from the Kirby Wikia. There have been problems with this in the past regarding this issue and it is not tolerated in this wiki.
  3. Please use the Show Preview button before saving edits, and mark minor edits minor.

Sorry if this seems stern, but there must be some degree of order to this wiki. For now, all your edits are probably going to be reverted due to the lack of quality. T.c.w7468 19:46, 12 April 2012 (CDT)

What t.c.w says is correct; I'm going to clarify some things, though, and I know this is a little long, but it would be nice if you could take the time to read this; keep in mind this is not meant as an insult, but to help you understand how the wiki works and what you should take into consideration if you wish to help out.
To clarify t.c.w's first point, please try to use correct spelling, especially for game names (while it would have been trivial otherwise, your misspelling of "Kirby Mass Attack" as "Kirby's Mass Attack" was fairly major as you made a category using the incorrect name) and abstain from writing very short articles (or sections, unless the length is justifiable); if you start writing about something, you should make sure you have enough to say about the subject to warrant creating an article(/section) - if your new article would be very short, it is usually better not to create it (thus leaving it on the "wanted pages" list) and instead to wait for someone who can do it justice to do so. Please also refer to the Help pages on formatting; your edits seemed to not contain much crucial formatting (such as links, bolding of the first instance of a name and properly inserting images).
Again, keep in mind that this is not meant as an insult against you and that we appreciate everybody's efforts to contribute something, we're just trying to maintain a certain level of quality - certainly not as high as Wikipedia's, but you should still be aware of how to write articles/sections of proper length and format them correctly using wiki code if you wish to help out; otherwise, your contributions may end up creating more work for other editors because someone will need to fix their formatting, etc. Sorry about this & I hope you haven't gotten the wrong impression from the staff's actions. Finally, I would also like to point you towards our Sandbox, where you can freely try out formatting and similar things without risking having your edits undone (unless you insert something offensive or libellous).--Vellidragon 11:50, 13 April 2012 (CDT)
