[edit] Using "Show Preview"

This one, not that one. We got that? Now gimmie five.

Hello Drexlore, welcome to the wiki! I see that you have made several consecutive edits to the same page. I want to point out the Show Preview button. It's right next to the Save Page button when you edit. You should use it whenever you are making a lot of experimental edits, for example when you are trying to get formatting right. Using the Show Preview button is quicker and easier than saving and clicking "edit" again, and will keep recent changes and page histories from being flooded. Thanks, and if you happen to need help with anything, don't hessitate to ask me or any of the other users. cash money tc 21:58, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

I'll make sure I show previews! After all, I'm on the recent changes patrol so that I can see what is going on so far recently. -El Trento 20:35, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Signing Posts on talk pages requires your username or something that suggests your username...

Also, as noted in the signature guidelines, "Your signature must include a text version of your username, with a link to your user page. If you use a shortened or altered form of your official name, it must be something that suggests your username." Signing as "Somone that's not It's Dot Com" violates this rule, and will often be misleading if something looks at it at a glance and doesn't notice the first half. Hope that helps.

Just thought you should know. ColdReactive 20:12, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
