From D&D Wiki
Welcome to D&D Wiki
Hello Xidoraven, and welcome to D&D Wiki! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like D&D Wiki and decide to stay. I am the owner of the site, and if you have a question feel free to ask me, however when contacting anyone on D&D Wiki through talk pages please sign your name using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. Also, if you want to help D&D Wiki but just don't know how drop me a note and I'll see what I can do. However, when dropping me a note please tell me how much time you would like to spend working, how well you know the Wiki Format, and how well you know D&D. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a D&D Wikian! If you need help ask me on my talk page, or just right here. Again, welcome! --Green Dragon 23:10, 3 December 2006 (MST)
Hello everyone! New to the wiki here, and looking to make sure I establish myself well in practice before I go adding a bunch of pages about info on my homebrew world and campaign ideas.
Any help you can give on how to format text would be greatly appreciated. Email me for more, or comment here. If you comment here, make sure to watch the page. Thanks!

- Normally the preload pages are correctly formatted... If you have any problems adding content please tell me and I will see what I can do. Again, welcome! --Green Dragon 21:36, 10 August 2007 (MDT)
- Thanks, Dragon. I appreciate the help. So far, I know how to bold, italic, sign my name/date, and add info into the templates you all have here. I began work on my creature concept, the Anakim, and wanted to post a link to an off-site URL, and was prevented from doing so, as far as I know. I filled in the password text when the message came up to confirm that I wanted to add a link, then when the page refreshed, the entire added text was gone, and I had to go back and get rid of the link in order to post my content... Not sure how that works.
- I think I have the idea of adding content down pretty well, and with Wikipedia's help page it might not be so hard, but I am still unsure of how to make new formatting (such as for a table that does not include 20 class levels).
- Either way, I am only here when I get time after work to post info, and this is mostly just to get me started in being involved with an online D&D content group. I really like the site so far, and hope to stick around as long as possible. A lot of my previous content was posted on pages hosted by Elftown.com, which I will never leave completely. However, because this site's beastiary is quite extensive, I will definitely have to keep my head in close quarters here to keep an eye on things. It's all very cool and new to me.
- So far the only pages I have working are "Anakim (DnD Creature)" and "Inath". The latter will feature information that is being moved from its current housing in Elftown so that D&D players will be able to see what I have been considering as an alternative system to character progression. It's unorthodox, but a great concept based on real-world spiritual concepts.
- Anyways, thank you, and best wishes to you. Please stick around, and I would love to keep in touch. I appreciate all the help everyone has given me, especially on my Anakim page... But I have a question about that too... Someone else has that name featured as a playable race for D&D, and I do not want to encroach upon their own ideas just to get mine up on the web. Should I be concerned about this issue? Is there something I can do aside from re-naming my creature concept to help keep things modest? --xido 20:12, 10 September 2007 (MDT)
- I will answer this is more depth when I have more time, however I would like to touch on one topic briefly. It is 100% okay to name your creation "Anakim" since the other reference to that on D&D Wiki is not added (and, in all honesty, probably never will get added). If you go to the WFRC page that that can be seen you will notice the link is red, therefore it does not link to anything. Again, please feel free to name it that as it is not encroaching on anyones work (plus, that person is not even from D&D Wiki, they are from Wizards....) --Green Dragon 18:51, 11 September 2007 (MDT)
- Here is the rest of the answering (not as much as I thought there would be :)). For all formatting issues I would consult Wikipedia. They have articles on most everything about formatting on wiki's, and a very good way of learning wiki syntax. A good place to start is here. --Green Dragon 22:08, 18 September 2007 (MDT)
Here is the link you requested in The Tavern: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Wikitext_examples . --Green Dragon 18:46, 11 September 2007 (MDT)
- Thanks, GD. I will be putting this to use very shortly. I will start by making some tables for the applicable game info for Inath (3.5e Variant Rule), and move on from there. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Xidoraven (talk • contribs)16:41, 14 September 2007 (MDT).

Do we have a higher-res version of the logo up anywhere? I am making business cards and I need a higher-res version. --Dmilewski 12:20, 1 March 2008 (MST)
