March 2009[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, such as on Talk:Daybreak (Battlestar Galactica), you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You may also click on the signature button Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you. --Jeremy (blah blah) 01:43, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

thank you sir for the help, as you can tell I’m not fully acquainted with how to use wiki--Collinsas (talk) 02:18, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I just want to let you know I am not trying to be a jerk with the whole BSG page. The thing is that when dealing with WP, you have to get yourself in a certain mindset of other editors. I can see where you are coming from and see the similarities between the ships and agree with you, but the rules, which I too have run afoul of, are there for a reason.

What you can do is get in the habit of coming up with an addition, seeking citeable resources and then adding it to an article. This can prevent thing such as this from happening, and trust me it will if you don't - that is why I stated you should find such evidence that complies with the guidelines. I am fairly flexible (believe it or not) on this but with popular articles, other contributors are not. The best way is to perform several searches on Google about your chosen subject with different keywords and then search the results for acceptable sources. Stay a way from blogs, user generated content and such, as most will discount them as unreliable. I don't like that policy as I believe that a blog can show the existence of something, such as a product being sold by a certain vendor, or a professional blog detailing the development of a certain subject. Unfortunately there are sticklers who will challenge or remove anything from these sources out of hand.

If you have any questions, ask and can try to help or point you to someone who can. --Jeremy (blah blah) 16:12, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
