Hello Corruption, 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 [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes]] and page histories from being flooded.

Please note that this works with anything, so you don't have to keep pressing '''Save Page'''.

Welcome

Welcome to the wiki. I noticed on your user page you were wondering "how to make a proper list" .. there are a couple ways to do this. If you want a numbered list, begin every line with a # and the following will be the result:

  1. Pong
  2. Asteroids
  3. Frogger

Or if you want a bulleted list, begin every line with a * instead, and this will happen:

  • Pac-Man
  • Donkey Kong
  • Space Invaders

Hope that helps. And I look forward to seeing your contributions to the wiki! OptimisticFool 20:48, 27 September 2008 (UTC)

Using Show Preview

That one

Hello Corruption, 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. Please note that this works with anything, so you don't have to keep pressing Save Page.
