Greetings, etc.

Hello and welcome. Please familiarize yourself with our Standards and Conventions here on BSGWiki. Firstly, see "Cylon agent"; there is no definative name for these Cylon models, (it's actually under debate whether we should keep using Humano-Cylon, as Cylon agent, Humanoid Cylon, etc. are also common). However, as you can see in the notes at the end of thier article, "Bio-Cylon" is considered a pejorative term applied to the Re-Imagined Series by Original Series detractors of it. Next, when you cite information, do not use "(episode: "Scar"). Rather, to set it up do this: At the end of what you've written, write: ("[Scar]"). ( Notice that I just added in one bracket there so you could see it, but normally use double brackets to make a link). Periods go after the Parentheses. An example would be as follows: --> Scar is a Cylon Raider ("Scar"). -->that would do nicely. --Ricimer 01:28, 7 February 2006 (EST)

I would like to apologize for Ricimer's brusque greeting, and give you a proper welcome to the Battlestar Wiki. I hope you won't let some of our harsher contributors scare you off - learning the ins and outs of a place like this is often a matter of trial and error. Don't be afraid of messing up; we'll be watching out for you. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a note on my talk page. --April Arcus 02:35, 7 February 2006 (EST)

This was not "Brusque" in any way and you know it Farago. I honestly provided this guy with the proper information to fix some early problems, and you go accusing me of this? See Ricimer talk page. --Ricimer 03:41, 7 February 2006 (EST)
Also, except in the cases of "Scar" and "Pegasus", you don't need quotes around episode names for parenthetical references. I'm sure you're literate (as you're using the web *wink*) and can read the S&C for yourself. I just thought I'd clarify Ricimer's, uh, guidance. Anyway, welcome welcome. Also feel free to post questions to my talk page, or to the Admin's Noticeboard. --Day 02:48, 7 February 2006 (EST)
