There are very few '''policies''' which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at Wikia:Category:Policy. 

Other policies for this Wikia should be decided by the wiki community. It's generally best to keep policies as simple as possible, and not to introduce too many rules. A growing wiki can usually do well with a few simple policies and a lot of goodwill and cooperation.  

Adding Category:Policy to any policy pages will add them to the policy category.  This is found :Category:Policy|here.

See also {{ns:project}}:Simplified ruleset

This is a list of policy pages for this Wikia.  Please also see :Category:Help, and the policy pages on the Wikia:Category:Policy|Central Wikia.


This page is for any tests.

Welcome to the sandbox!

Anyone can edit this.

==Simple Editing==

To edit a page, click on the "edit" tab, usually near the top of the page.  Then, edit the box in the page.  Feel free to practice here, on this page.  It's here just for you to practice.

A blank line indicates a paragraph separation.

You can link to another page by putting the name or title of that page in double square brackets. 
Main Page becomes Main Page.

==Simple Formatting==

Create headers by putting text inbetween repeated equal (=) signs.  The more =, the lower level the heading is.

Create a bulleted list by starting each item with an asterisk (*)
* it's ok to make editing mistakes
* you can preview your work before saving it
* even after saving it, you or someone else can edit it again to make it even better

==Formatting for Emphasis==

Put single quote marks around words or phrases for formatting emphasis.

Two single quotes, like ''italics'' will create ''italics''.

Three single quotes, like '''bold text''' will create '''bold text'''.

Other stuff...

If you know HTML or CSS formatting commands, they can also be used in this wiki.  One useful HTML command is 
which creates a line break. If you want to show what a command looks like, rather than actually implementing the command, surround it with the '''nowiki''' command.

Wikipedia:Wikipedia|Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, is the largest and most successful wiki. This page lists some of the overarching guidelines that have helped make ''Wikipedia'' a success. You may like to consider them for this Wikia.

# '''BE BOLD!''' in updating pages. Go ahead, it's a wiki! 
Encourage others, including those who disagree with you, likewise to '''BE BOLD!''' # '''Be civil''' to other users at all times. # '''Ignore all rules'''. If the rules discourage you from improving or maintaining the wiki's quality, ignore them. # '''When in doubt, take it to the Help:Talk page|talk page'''. We have all the time in the world. Mutual respect is the guiding behavioral principle of Wikia and, although everyone knows that their writing may be edited mercilessly, it is easier to accept changes if the reasons for them are understood. If you discuss changes on the article's ''talk'' (or ''discussion'') page before you make them, you should reach consensus faster and happier. #'''Project:Copyrights|Respect copyright'''. Wikia uses the GNU Free Documentation License. Everything you contribute must be compatible with that license. # '''Decent edit summaries''' and clear and transparent explanations are universally appreciated. Other editors need to understand your process, and it also helps you yourself to understand what you did after a long leave of absence from an article. Please state '''''what''''' you changed and '''''why'''''. If the explanation is too long, add more on the discussion page. #'''Assume good faith'''; in other words, try to consider that the person on the other end of the discussion is a thinking, rational being who is trying to positively contribute to the project — unless, and only unless, you have firm, solid, and objective proof to the contrary. Merely disagreeing with you is no such proof. , '''don't revert good faith edits'''. Help:Reverting|Reverting is ''too'' powerful sometimes. Don't succumb to the temptation, unless you're reverting very obvious vandalism (like "LALALALAL*&*@#@THIS_SUX0RZ", or someone changing "1+2=3" to "1+2='''17'''"). If you really can't stand something, revert once, with an edit summary something like "(rv) I disagree strongly, I'll explain why in talk." and immediately take it to talk. # '''No personal attacks'''. Don't write that user such and so is an idiot, or insult him/her (even if (s)he ''is'' an idiot). Instead, explain what they did wrong, why it is wrong, and how to fix it. If possible, fix it yourself (but see above). # '''Be graceful''': ''Be liberal in what you accept, be conservative in what you do''. Try to accommodate other people's quirks the best you can, but try to be as polite, solid, and straightforward as possible yourself. # '''Sign your posts on talk pages''' using ~~~~, which gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit Save. But don't sign on mainspace articles. # '''Use the preview button'''; it helps prevents edit conflicts and mistakes. It's important to have fun... but try to make sure those around you have fun too! {{Wikipedia|Wikipedia:Simplified Ruleset}} Category:Help|Simplified ruleset Category:Policy|Simplified ruleset

:'''Need help?'''  The Project:Community Portal|Community Portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit.

:'''Please Special:Userlogin|sign in every time you edit''', so that we can recognise you! 
I'm really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you!


==Using this template==
To welcome a new contributor who has a user name, add this to the user's talk page:
