Welcome to D&D Wiki!
Hello TheDM69, and welcome to D&D Wiki! I hope you are enjoying D&D Wiki and have been finding the information here useful. Before you start contributing, we recommend you make sure your user preferences match your preferences.
If you have any questions about a specific page please ask it on that page's talk page. If you have a D&D-related question, you can ask it on DnD Discussions. Everything relating to D&D Wiki's administration can be asked here. If you need to contact another user, please use their talk page.
Syntax can be very difficult, and if you need help a good place to start is Help:Editing on Wikipedia (or even their Introduction page). This will explain basic wiki formatting and should provide quite a few useful links that explain more specific areas of wiki formatting. Help:Portal also provides detailed explanation of information important specifically to this community.

Hey friend, I've had to delete a large number of pages created by you for violating copyright. Everything I deleted was copied out of the Player's Handbook or another official D&D book, and we don't have the right to copy it; the site could get in legal trouble if we do. At the bottom of every edit box, including the one I am typing into right now, there is a message that says "[By clicking the "Save changes" button] [y]ou are...promising us that you wrote this yourself, or copied it from a public domain or similar free resource. Do not submit copyrighted work without permission!". I am now issuing you an official infraction; please refrain from plagiarizing or committing copyright violations. Thank you. — Geodude (talk | contribs | email) . . 21:32, 12 July 2020 (MDT)
Hi guy, the pages you've recreated this morning are still in violation of copyright. Wikidot is not a legal source for D&D content; it consists of WotC content that was copied there illegally. Even if it were a legal source, you've still not included the proper licensing info. Before you copy something from elsewhere onto this site, make sure you have permission to copy it here, and make sure the place you're copying from has permission to host it there.
Based on this, I am issuing you a second infraction, and will be forgoing a third infraction to ban you from the site for 1 week for continuing to plagiarize and commit copyright violations. Thank you for your understanding. — Geodude (talk | contribs | email) . . 12:38, 13 July 2020 (MDT)
