From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, Perlmonger42. 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 does not allow fan fiction articles.

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. Please sign your posts on any talk page by simply entering four tildes (~~~~), which will be automatically replaced with your name and a time stamp.

Remember that talk pages are for questions about the article connected to that talk page, and aren't for long discussions about the show. To chat as much as you'd like about the show (or other topics), why not set up a free account on the Battlestar Forum bulletin board?

We look forward to your contributions to the Battlestar Wiki community! --Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 19:23, 31 August 2007 (CDT)

Wikipedia links

Good work on the cleanup. The early episode articles probably aren't up to our later standards, because a lot of the guidelines were just being developed then and people became more strict as time went on as far as informal or more subjective writing is concerned. We really should have done this before now.

Anyways, don't use external links for Wikipedia. We have an interwiki thing going on here. Just type [[w:WikipediaArticle|Title]] for example. That also works with "ma:" or "memoryalpha:" Star Trek and "Wookieepedia:" for Star Wars. The links will then appear in a light red/rose --Serenity 06:18, 1 September 2007 (CDT)
