Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Greetings, Benny12, and welcome to Battlestar Wiki! I'm pleased to tell you that you have full editing privileges on every wiki in the Battlestar Wiki network. I hope you enjoy your stay with us and am looking forward to your contributions to the Wiki! Why not begin by telling us a bit about yourself on your own user page?

As you may already know, Battlestar Wiki covers all the Battlestar Galactica series from past to present, in addition to authorized merchandise. Presently, we don't cover fan fiction, but our sister-site, Battlestar Pegasus, does so. We're also not a discussion site, although we do have an ever-growing Battlestar Forum where people can discuss the various shows and non-BSG topics as well!

To get started on the wiki, we suggest that you check out our tutorial, experiment in the sandbox (a test editing area for those learning wiki code), and review some of our basic policies (which have important differences from other SF wikis). For some general questions and answers about the navigation and operation of the Wiki, check out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

Of course, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you are more than welcome to bring them up at the Chiefs' noticeboard (which is frequented by the administrators of the Wiki) and at the Galactipedians' Quorum (which is the hub for contributors, who are called "Galactipedians").

Furthermore, if you don't wish to see the ads, then please consider upgrading your account to a paid membership, which costs only $10 USD a year and helps support the wiki financially. Becoming a member also entitles you to our raffle, where you can win gift cards, merchandise, and other prizes! We think this is very cool, and we hope you do as well!

Thank you for joining us! Hope to see you soon! --Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Battlestar Pegasus 05:54, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Recent edits

Hi, Benny. Serenity, a contributor here, reverted your recent edits to Resistance (episode) and Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II. On the first edit, there isn't any further information given in the episode about what specific Cylon models have been seen by Anders and the resistance. Anders's team's apprehension is more from a foreign face in a world where there are very few survivors, so their logical conclusion is to be suspicious of anyone. In the following episode, "The Farm", Anders does say something to Starbuck that suggests that his group has met a Leoben before.

Serenity reverted an edit in "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II" because it was speculative and not supported by the events. Since it's been a long time since this episode, supporting events don't follow with your speculation.

I reverted your edit to "Home, Part II". The series already notes the Cylon's motivations so it needn't be repeated there.

Don't let us dissuade you from more edits...but please read the editing standards to ensure your edit stays in place. Don't add nested questions as you did, which makes the article appear to argue with itself. You can create a new question or modify the existing question for more depth. --Spencerian 14:56, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

More generally, please don't answer questions with outright speculation - or at all in the question section itself for that matter. That's the main reason for the reverts. Only providing links to the episodes seems inefficient to me too sometimes, but it's the format we're stuck with. However, in some cases such things can be added to the analysis section. But then you need to move the whole thing there and reword it, so it reads like just an argument and not a question followed by an answer. I did with the note on Colonial Day, which was a good observation.
As for "Resistance", I agree with Spence there, that there is nothing to support that they merely think Starbuck and Helo are Cylons. There are some other comments to indicate contacts with humanoid Cylons. And a note like "Seriously?" just isn't....well, serious. Or rather encyclopedic. -- Serenity 15:41, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
