Welcome to Battlestar Wiki![edit]

Welcome to the Wiki, Galactica_freak. 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'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 (~~~~)!

We look forward to your contributions to the community! --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 08:00, 15 June 2007 (CDT)


Nog een Nederlandstalige (neem ik aan dan, gezien BSG alleen op de Vlaamse TV is), welkom! Als je vragen hebt over hoe dingen werken op deze Wiki kun je het altijd aan mij vragen (of aan anderen, maar dan krijg je geen Nederlands antwoord ;) ). Omdat je alleen de Miniserie hebt gezien zou ik uitkijken met het lezen van artikelen hierzo, alle gebeurtenissen van de eerste drie (!) seizoenen staan er namelijk in. Wel veilig zijn de artikelen over de afleveringen zelf, zoals Miniseries, Night 1 en 33. Veel plezier hier! --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 15:01, 20 June 2007 (CDT)

Your addition to Columbia (RDM)[edit]

I'm sorry, but I have to remove that picture, because it's just fanwank, as in "nonsense" made up by fans. We only document official sources here. As such we can't include any wild speculation by fans, whether that's about developments in the story, background story elements or made up ship designs.

Moreover, please don't sign your name in articles. That's only done on talk pages --Serenity 13:50, 20 July 2007 (CDT)

Taking proper screenshots[edit]

Please do not take literal photographs of a television screen. The quality is simply horrible and the files are far too large for that. The first time I didn't say anything, but now you uploaded three new ones just like it. But you can't actually see anything on them, so I deleted them.

To take actual screenshots download a video player like VLC, insert the DVD into your computer, play it, and click "video" -> "snapshot". Then you can further edit the image with IrfanView if needed. -- Serenity 09:00, 5 March 2008 (CST)
