Note to Self![edit]

To access categories in the tab boxes, the page is named like this: User:Crisperstorm/CategoryName

Image deletion[edit]

Hey just for future reference, if you need something to be deleted, just place {{Delete}} on the page. It automatically adds it to the candidates for deletion category.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:33, 20 July 2015 (EDT)

About testing[edit]

Just so you know, it's preferred that you make any test edits here or on your own personal sandbox page, rather than in the main article namespace. Also, do try to avoid making multiple edits to an article. Just use the "preview" button prior to saving. Thanks.--Spartacus TalkContribs 22:05, 18 September 2015 (EDT)

Sorry. My computer just tends to crash so I try to keep things saved so I don't lose all of the work.--Crisperstorm (talk) 22:09, 18 September 2015 (EDT)
That's fine, but try to avoid it as much as you can. Halopedia has a point system where you get points for every article edit you make. But like I said, a good place to make test edits and save them would the sandbox page I linked above. Then once you are satisfied with the layout you can copy and paste the content to the article.--Spartacus TalkContribs 22:20, 18 September 2015 (EDT)
Alright, I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the heads up!--Crisperstorm (talk) 22:23, 18 September 2015 (EDT)
No problem. Thank you for contributing!--Spartacus TalkContribs 22:26, 18 September 2015 (EDT)
One question, would checking the "Minor edit" box prevent points or would it just award reduced points?--Crisperstorm (talk) 22:35, 18 September 2015 (EDT)

Filenames[edit]

"Filenames for images must be sufficiently brief and simple. It should provide the source of the image along with a short, simple description of what the image covers."
— Halopedia Image Policy

As per above, please follow that from now on. It's quite time consuming to sort through your uploads, rename them, and edit the articles they're in. There's even an option on the upload page to give the image a destination filename.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:34, 20 August 2016 (EDT)
