User talk:Battlestar Pacifica

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, Battlestar_Pacifica. Tell us about yourself on your user page. We have a template that lets you put some information about yourself in a nice-looking box.

Battlestar Wiki is an encyclopedia on officially-licensed stories, aired episodes, and other products of the Battlestar universes. Make sure that your contributions fit Battlestar Wiki's purpose, avoiding what we aren't.

Our editing standards and conventions policies may differ from other wikis, especially in verb tense and voice, capitalization and the like. Please read this policy. We have an editing tutorial and wiki markup codes to help you.

Our policies on original research differ from places such as Wikipedia. We allow some research based on aired episode content, but don't allow speculation that isn't supported from episode events. Battlestar Wiki does not allow fan fiction articles.

Battlestar Wiki's many projects help improve our content. Are you an Original Series fan? Help out in the Original Series Article Project. Non-English versions of Battlestar Wiki also need contributors, and helpers for our podcast transcriptions are also welcome. New projects should be brought to our Think Tank, where we hash out large-scale ideas before implementing them.

Any questions about an article can be entered on the article's talk page. General questions about the wiki can be brought to the Quorum or the chiefs' noticeboard. Please sign your posts on any talk page by simply entering four tildes (~~~~), which will be automatically replaced with your name and a time stamp.

Remember that talk pages are for questions about the article connected to that talk page, and aren't for long discussions about the show. To chat as much as you'd like about the show (or other topics), why not set up a free account on the Battlestar Forum bulletin board?

We look forward to your contributions to the Battlestar Wiki community! --Shane (T - C - E) 21:15, 26 November 2007 (CST)

Username Issue

Hi, there. Your username is in violation of our username policy, which attempts to prevent confusion between names of characters, objects and actors in Battlestar Galactica and user names. There is already an article for the Original Series battlestar, "Pacifica".

I've also noted that there is a "Battlestar Pacifica" fan fiction/multiuser shared game of the same name on the internet. Usernames cannot be used to promote other internet or real-world locales, paid or otherwise. Battlestar Wiki policy is not to host fan fiction or promote it (although a link to the site can be placed here). Your name may be coincidentally related, but unfortunately it cannot be used on Battlestar Wiki for this and the aforementioned reason.

We've marked your userpage to flag this issue. Please leave a talk message on this page to request a change of your user name (be sure to leave your requested name), and we'll be happy to fix you up. --Spencerian 22:01, 26 November 2007 (CST)

Hey there! We don't want you to go! Contributors like yourself are very important to the wiki community. We just need to rename your account. Could you provide us a name? We can change it very quickly, no fuss at all. (I replied on the Chief's side with the same question). --Spencerian 22:23, 26 November 2007 (CST)
