Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!
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'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 administrators' noticeboard. To sign your posts on any talk page, just enter four tildes (~~~~)!
About your first new article
Hi, Chet, and welcome to Battlestar Wiki. Unfortunately, your first contribution, the article "Second Variety", will need to be deleted. Battlestar Wiki is an encyclopedia that, unlike Wikipedia, contains articles specific to the Battlestar universe only--we're not a general encyclopedia. While we do note, contrast and compare Battlestar stories with other works of fiction (and Dick's stories do have a significant ring), such information doesn't merit an article in itself. The relevant note on the Cylon's betrayal and its contrast to Second Variety is a good one that can be incorporated into the Cylon History article. --Spencerian 08:02, 6 June 2007 (CDT)
- To clarify my actions, I removed the addition from Cylons (RDM), because that's only meant as a small portal to introduce the Cylons. There are a couple of other articles that go into more detail, and as said Cylon History is a better place to note that. --Serenity 10:22, 6 June 2007 (CDT)
- Looks just fine, Chet. Don't forget to sign any talk page entries using --~~~~ at the end to make it easier for others to know who wrote what. --Spencerian 11:11, 6 June 2007 (CDT)
