Maybe some of these links will help:

I know you've been a member since the beginning of this month, but I haven't seen you around much. So I wanted to take this opportunity to say: welcome to the wiki! — It's dot com 21:24, 21 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I'm finally beginning to edit some stuff. I think I might get this.

Or not... I can't figure out how to end the italics.


I've heard your plight and am here to help. In order to put something in italics on the wiki, use a set of quotes. For example to make the word 'might' in your sentence italicised, type ''might'' (using two sets of apostrophes). Using the HTML tags is generally considered unacceptable, so I fixed it in your sentence for you (hope you don't mind). On a related note, use '''three sets''' to make something bold. --DorianGray

I've figured out how to do it. It's not quotes, but rather apostrophes.

Apostrophes are only preferred when you specifically want emphasis. When you specifically need italics for, say, the title of some literature like The Picture of Dorian Gray (I swear that was the first one that popped into my head!), then HTML tags are the way to go. It's something about blind people, screen readers, and the Lynx browser. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 17:45, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

New Messages

It keeps saying that I have new messages. I HAVE NO NEW MESSAGES.

It's a bug. To clear the new messages message, you have to click on the "unwatch" tab at the top of your user talk page. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 21:19, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

I tried doing that before, and it didn't work. When I looked up to see if my page was watched, it turned out that it was, when I swear that I had unwatched it. Oh well, it doesn't look like it'll do this again.

AHHH! Every time I try to post a message, it automatically watches my page! ~Isaac Smith

Yeah, you have to unwatch it every time. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 01:12, 27 October 2005 (UTC)
Alternatively, you can change it in your preferences. It's under "Editing." Eighth check box down. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 17:48, 3 November 2005 (UTC)


Hey, how do I get my self one of those cool signature thingies?

Hey Isaac, I loved the Arial Black font you used in your sig, so I've used it in my own. Consider it a homage. --BigScaryMike (Talk/Contrib) 06:03, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
