Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, Bumbledragon. Feel free to tell us about yourself on your user page. Before you get started on other edits, please read the Standards and Conventions, which details the policies we use in editing pages (this differs from many other wikis in its particular use of verb tense, abbreviations, formatting, and the like). If you need help in learning how to use the MediaWiki tools supported here, you can check out the tutorial and the wiki markup code pages for assistance.

Please read the articles "What is Battlestar Wiki" and "What Battlestar Wiki is Not." This important information details what contributions are acceptable in this encyclopedia.

We encourage you to participate in any projects on Battlestar Wiki, which work to enhance a particular subject or extension of the wiki. These include the Original Series Article Development Project and several language translations of Battlestar Wiki. If you have a new idea for a new project, visit the Think Tank, where we hash out large-scale ideas before implementing them.

Also, if you have any questions or suggestions you wish to offer, please feel free to do so either on an article's talk page that's relevant to the subject, the Wikipedian Quorum or the Administrators' noticeboard. Remember to sign your posts on any talk pages using four tildes (~~~~)!

Recent Rollback

Welcome, Bumbledragon. I reverted your contribution to Humanoid Cylon speculation in the needed qualifiers section. To begin, there is no official sourcing that indicates that the Cylons fully isolated themselves from humanity for 40 years, only that the humans themselves had not been aware of any Cylons amongst them for 40 years. Second, your line, "It is safe to assume that no humanoid Cylon can have a history longer than 40 years or have verifiable blood relatives" is not consistent with RDM's canonical note (located in the paragraph below your entry): Humanoid Cylons are not and have never been human, so therefore they cannot have any blood relatives.

Be sure to read the policy on what source material or speculation is appropriate on the wiki. "Educated guesses" such as what you attempted are allowed, but an official source must back up the claim, else, it may be considered fanwanking, or original fan research, which isn't allowed. Don't let my comments deter you from being bold and adding your further insights into the wiki; as an admin, I have to be anal. :) --Spencerian 10:33, 10 February 2007 (CST)
