Welcome Technical 13

Hi ShoeMaker, welcome to Grand Theft Wiki! I hope you like the place and decide to stay.

We're pleased you've chosen to come to Grand Theft Wiki. We are a little different to many other sites, because we pride ourselves on encouraging every user to pitch in and help out, not just the experts.

Even if you're new and don't know much about how wikis work, we encourage you to get stuck in and start editing away! Any edit can be can be reversed, so don't worry about breaking things too much! Have a practice in the sandbox too if you like.

  • If you do need help, check out our Help section.
  • If you want to know more about Grand Theft Wiki, see our About page.
  • If you're interested in our rules and the way we do things on Grand Theft Wiki, check out our Policy.
  • If you'd like to interact with the rest of the community here, check out our Community Hub.
  • If you want a safe place to test out editing, have a play around with our Sandbox

Whether you're brand new to wikis or are more experienced, check out our Tasks page, which shows you the sorts of things we need you to help out with on here.

I hope you enjoy being a part of this wiki, and that get involved in the community here! If you need help, ask any of our Staff members and leave a message on our talk/discussion pages. Have fun!

Re: Questions

In reply to Questions, the non-frequently asked kind

Hi Technical 13, I'll respond to your questions here:

  • You can see all the extensions we use on Special:Version and you should be able to figure out which ones do what from there
  • The rank image uses simple CSS. It sets the image as the background, non-repeating, and uses padding to push the text across a bit. The fancy part is getting it to show up on links to any staff page. You can see this CSS at the bottom of Mediawiki:Common.css, and obviously you'd need to tinker it to suit your needs
  • Our spam filters stop new users posting links to unknown sites, once you've made a few edits you'll be able to edit normally.

Let me know if you have any other questions - gboyers talk 16:27, 24 April 2012 (UTC)
