Hello, Red Pooka, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions.

I don't know specifically what you want help with, but the above welcome stuff should be helpful in general. Also, if you go to someone else's user page and click on "edit", you can see the Wikipedia code used to create their page. Take someone whose page you like, copy & paste the code to your own user page, and edit from there.

Again, welcome! Mangojuicetalk 20:33, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

  • shrugs*. What can I say. Experiment and use the sandbox and the help pages. They'll tell you how to make tables and such. If you have specific questions, I'll try to help you out with them. Mangojuicetalk 18:24, 26 September 2006 (UTC)


Yeah, go ahead. You won't be the first to do it. I don't mind. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 19:58, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Copy and paste this code onto your userpage. That's the code, in its entirety. You may need to copy and paste some templates too (listed at the bottom, under "Pages transcluded onto the current version of this page". -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 20:05, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Here's the code for the subpages. Again, you may have to copy and paste some templates. Same directions as last time. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 21:33, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Edit this page for the menu. I hope that helps. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 02:55, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
The code is more or less the same as the bio page. Just different content in the body, so just delete the bio stuff and add in what you want. For the photos section, you can use the <gallery> tag. -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 04:05, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
For the "hide" thing, here it is:

<div class="NavFrame" style="padding: 0px; border-style: none; background:#948663;"> <div class="NavHead" style="border:1px solid #FFFFFF; background: #948663; text-align: center;"><font color=white>YOUR TITLE HERE</font></div> <div class="NavContent" style="border:3px solid #948663; display: none; text-align: left; background:#FFFFFF"> YOUR CONTENT HERE </div> </div>

Re:Pooka image[edit]

I might be able to locate one, but I won't. Chances are very good that such an image would be copyrighted, and inappropriate for use anywhere that doesn't fall under fair use; even on your userpage it wouldn't be allowed. But even if a free version could be found, it's against the wikipedia signature rules to include images in your signature. Basically, it slows down the site and isn't considered to serve a useful purpose. Mangojuicetalk 20:08, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

Dig Dug pic[edit]

Your using the Dig Dug pic on your userpages is actually violating copyright due to the pic's Free Use tag. Free Use images aren't allowed on userpages because its license states that it can only be used to illustrate the image's subject. Try looking for a free use image, such as those tagged as public domain images. Just thought I'd let you know, so you can change it yourself. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 04:21, 27 September 2006 (UTC)


Hehe, what's that for? :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 00:19, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Nothing happened, besides a link to the image itself. -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 00:21, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Well, you're welcome. And thanks for the barnstar. :) -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 00:24, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
I just added {{TOCright}} to your Pooka Planet page -- was this what you wanted to do? -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 00:37, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Thanks for mine. Things look pretty good on your pages, I think. Mangojuicetalk 01:12, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Trophy case table code[edit]

{|border=0 cellspacing=1 width=80% <!--begin row--> |- !bgcolor=white|[[image:Barnstar.png|100px]] |bgcolor="#948663"|'''The Original Barnstar'''<br><br>Some blurb about why the barnstar was awarded. <!--end row-->

It might help to get the code directly off this page -- click "Edit" and scroll down to the code above, on this page. -→Buchanan-Hermit/?! 01:16, 28 September 2006 (UTC)
