Page creationsEdit

Hi, I'm Ray, one of the admins here. I understand that you are new to the wiki, so I just want to offer a few friendly suggestions.

Before you create a page, please make sure that the information doesn't already exist. For example, the page that you made called "the story of Sleeping Dogs" already exists on the Sleeping Dogs page, as well as in the character biographies. The other page that you created, "5 ways Sleeping Dogs..." is not a suitable topic for a page. The pages are only for accurate information about Sleeping Dogs, it's characters, vehicles, setting and etcetera. The pages are not for opinion, or fanfiction. You can recreate that page, however, as a blog.

I just hope you thake these suggestions into account. I know that it's hard to be new, and when I was new to wikia, I made mistakes as well. Tom, another admin here, actually taught me a lot of what I know about wikis.

If you have any oter questions, please don't hesitate to ask me, Tom, or the founder, Marijus.

You're welcome. If you have any more questions or need help, please don't hesitate to ask. Ray Leave a message 01:53, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

Hi, please do not add the infobox images into the galleries as well; there is no need for one image to be on the page twice. Ray Leave a message 22:09, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

That's ok. You're still learning about how to use wikia, so it's normal to make some mistakes. Just make sure that the information or image doesn't already exist on the page before adding it. There's no need for repeated information. Ray Leave a message 19:09, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

QuotesEdit

Hi Abs. You make a quote like this.

Start with two of these - {{

Then add the word "quote" (Don't put the quotations)

Then put in one of these "|" (No quotations)

Then put the quote.

Then add another of these after the quote "|" (No quotations)

Then put who said it.

The add two of these at the end }}

So it ends up looking like this:

"Your quote here example blah."
―Ray to Abs about creating a quote template

If you have any other questions about it, let me know. When you reply to this, put your reply as a quote to see if you did it right. Ray Leave a message 22:32, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Another thing, please think before adding cateogories to pages. For example, you added the "achievements and trophies" category to the Winston Chu page. It makes no sense to add that category. Another example is adding the category "Favour Characters" to Big Smile Lee. Since he is not involved in any favour missions, that doesn't make sense. To let you know, making detrimental or pointless/nonsensical edits in order to get an achievement (such as one for adding categories to pages) is called "achievement boosting" and it's a blockable offence.
