Multiple edits

Hello! I noticed you've been making a lot of edits to the same page over a short time. Doing this puts a large strain on our server and clogs up the recent changes. So instead of saving a lot, use the "show preview" button next to the "save page" button. It'll allow you to view your edit for any mistakes so you don't have to make a lot of fixing edits or additional ones! :)User:Justin/sig 23:43, 29 September 2010 (EDT)

Sorry, but I tend to have a look at stuff and add stuff in a short period of time, I also put in some more pictures. Its to make my user page a bit better GFlame

P.S.: you don't need to put date and time on my talk page, but you can do it if you prefer

Actually the time and date, the timestamp, is really expected as it helps tell when posts are made. A signature automatically includes it with four tildes, ~~~~ after your post. You can also click the second to last button on the upper toolbox to do the same thing.User:Matt/sig 04:07, September 30, 2010 (UTC)
Ohhh! so thats how you do it without finger stain from typing all those buttons GFlame 00:12, 30 September 2010 (EDT)


A little help please?

Because I am a bit of a rookie, may people please put tips on how to do stuff in this section here? thx, GFlame 00:15, 30 September 2010 (EDT)

Biggest tip to start out with is by looking at the Help Guide and browsing through all the topics. It should explain most things.User:Matt/sig 04:37, September 30, 2010 (UTC)
If you want something better than the Help Guide, look at the source code for a bunch of articles. If you ever need to make a table/use a template/etc and have seen it used in a previous article, quickly navigate to it, copy the required code and modify it to suit your needs. Looking at other people's work is a great way to double check your work and encourages you to try new things without all the mistakes. — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  14:25, 30 September 2010 (EDT)
I've actually been doing that before, thus the "Boss template" for my page (the bit at the side with the picture and the weaknesses ect..)
Hey minion, your page is pretty good, but how do you customise the boxes underneath the picture to be what you want (so I can add something like "favorite game" or "Is a " or "favorite game that is Zelda") GFlame 00:31, 1 October 2010 (EDT)
You'll want to use {{General Infobox}} for that. The following over-simplified example:
{{General Infobox
|name=GFlame
|align = left
|image=[[File:twwlink.png|130px]]
|1 = Favorite Game = Hide-and-seek
|2 = Age = 75
|3 = Status = Healthy
|4 = Dislikes = CHOCOLATE!!!
|5 = This is completely customizable = Check '''[[Template:General Infobox|this]]''' out for a full list of available features
}}
will produce the following:
GFlame
Twwlink.png
Favorite Game Hide-and-seek
Age 75
Status Healthy
Dislikes CHOCOLATE!!!
This is completely customizable Check this out for a full list of available features

Comments

Any comments on my page or talk page? GFlame 00:31, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

You'll want to organize things a bit better, but it looks fine for the most part. Talk a bit about your accomplishments, likes or beliefs to give the page a bit more character. I'm not sure about Matt, but you don't have to credit me on your page. Watching my little student grow is all I need. — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  07:45, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

AHHHHH!!!!!

I tryed to do a facts section, and it all went wrong!!!!! could someone please put in the code for fixining it Underneath here GFlame 00:49, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Matt has taken care of this. — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  07:45, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

Coding

If there are any codes for the boxes, put it underneath here with your name and the effect of the box code

For example:

Box:

Code:

Does: Puts a picture of a dancing ReDead with the caption: This user thinks ReDeads are creepy. The word "ReDead" links to the page about ReDeads GFlame 04:35, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

It's much easier to look at the list of userboxes here and here. The Help Guide isn't completely useless, you know. — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  07:45, 1 October 2010 (EDT)

3DS Page

I started a page on the nintendo 3DS, but its a little lame at the moment

page clean up

Hello!

If you have changed my page in some way PUT WHAT YOU HAVE DONE HERE!

Thanks!!! GFlame 02:48, 17 December 2010 (EST)

Linking pages together

You said on your userpage that you are having problems linking pages together. What exactly do you mean by that? — Abdul [T] [C] [S]  06:16, 18 July 2011 (EDT)

Userboxes

I don't know if you still want it, but here's the code for a Ruto userbox I made (I saw your request).


and it appears as:
