Hi Edit

Hi Courtney,

Just wondering if you'd like to test admin tools on this Wiki. You can check the main page to see what we're about and how to Test tools. You can request rights (so you could start testing) by clicking here.

Did you check-out this Wiki?

Congrats! Edit

Hi Courtney,

Yes check Done Eglinton awarded you Admin rights so you could test tools and I gave you Bureaucrat rights since you can be trusted.

RE Edit

Well, I'll try to help. (a user on the Harry Potter Wiki told me how.) It all has to do with codes. You would go to your preferences and scroll down until you get to the signature part. You check the custom signature box, and then put in your code and press save. My code is Head.Boy.Hog([[User talk:Head.Boy.Hog|Talk To Me)] . The [[User:Head.Boy.Hog|Head.Boy.Hog part is the part that says Head.Boy.Hog and then makes its font Currier, size 4 and color orange. and gives it a link. (User:Head.Boy.Hog is the link and I bet you guessed the rest.) means you are adding text... </font> means t=it is the end of a font... The ([[User talk:Head.Boy.Hog|Talk To Me)] is the part that adds the Talk To Me and makes it a link to my Talk Page. I could give you an example of what you could do. You could do Good luck in whatever you do, whether you're on a quest or just editing a page([[User talk:Courtney di Angelo|Courtney

Hope it works. Leave more messages on my Talk page if this doesn't work or if you need more help on anything else. (I'd still like to know how it works.)

Good Luck!

Help needed?Edit

Hi, User:Head.Boy.Hog, said that you need help with your signature? What's up? --BachLynn33px(Accio!) 13:52, March 13, 2011 (UTC)

Well, the font is a little tricky, there's only so many fonts that'll work in the browser, it's a little bit tricky to remember which ones (or why for that matter, been awhile since I was in school for web design). This website lists the most common fonts that work, see it's not whether or not the fonts will work on "wiki" it really all depends on the browser you're using to view them (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mac, Chrome, etc). There are other fonts that work, the font in my sig is Vivaldi (cursive), so sometimes I just sit down with a list of fonts and trial and error to see which ones will work and which won't. Tags are important, opening them and closing them. If you take the code from my signature [[User:BachLynn23|<font face="Vivaldi" size="4" color="Purple" >BachLynn</font>]][[File:Gryffindorcrest.png|33px]]<sup>([[User talk:BachLynn23|<font face="Monotype Corsiva" size="2" color="Purple">Accio!</font>]])</sup></nowki>, you can fill in your stuff, take out what you don't want. If you need more help, I'm usually available during the day. Just send me a message. :-) --~~~~ :Here's a tip: If you want your signature to be small, use this code <nowiki><small>Text</small> and it will appear as Text for big, use <big>Text</big> and the appearance will be Text.


Hope that helped.

Hmmmm, well upon looking over the code [[User:Courtney di Angelo|<font face="Cambria" size="4" color="Cyan" >Courtney-Daughter of Water</font>]]<sup>[[User talk:Courtney di Angelo|<font face="Corbel" size="2" color="Blue">Talk To Me</font>]]</nowki> the only thing I see wrong off the top is that you didn't close the <nowki><sup></nowki> at the end, there should be a <nowiki></sup> at the very end of the code. As far as how your actual signature looks after you've used <nowki>BachLynn33px(Accio!) 00:30, March 17, 2011 (UTC)</nowiki>, it looks like maybe you didn't erase all of the old signature you had prior? --BachLynn33px(Accio!) 00:30, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Edit

Well, what is </nowki>? and you didn't link the "Good luck on whatever you're doing.." to your User profile. Good luck and ask me if you need anything...

Head.Boy.Hog(Talk To Me) 11:46, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

I honestly don't know how to make the code show without it turning into the signature but "Head.Boy.Hog" part links to my user page, its blue and its size is 4 and its font is Currier. My "Talk to Me" part links to my Talk Page, its size is 2, font is Monotype Corsiva and its colour is red.

Head.Boy.Hog(Talk To Me) 11:42, March 18, 2011 (UTC)


I can't clearly explain what nowiki is, nobody understands. It's to show codes non linkble.

example: [[special:contact]]

is special:contact but no link.

Game Edit

What do you think the teams should be working on? I'm out of ideas. Head.Boy.Hog (Talk To Me) 15:09, April 16, 2011 (UTC)


Okay. Any ideas on how to get more users? Head.Boy.Hog (Talk To Me) 15:13, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

Could you actually create a page called Template:Help message and write the message there? Then, all you do is put Help message between 2 of { and } to add it to your user page because I'd like to put that message on mine too.


Head.Boy.Hog (Talk To Me) 15:24, April 16, 2011 (UTC)


A template is something like Yes check Done. So, I kept it like that and added This is a page where you can get help for problems you are having with tools or anything about the wiki. Sometimes the tools and stuff can be confusing and that's why this page is here. So if you have any questions, just put them below with your username. We also do lessons. You can create a lesson yourself if you want. All lessons are listed below, as well. Ask questions about a lesson on the lesson's page with your username. to the Help desk.

Requests for Rights Edit

Hi, this is Head.Boy.Hog and I'd like to ask you to please go over to the Requests for Rights and read the new rules because now, users are supposed to request rights on a Bureaucrat's talk page. So, just read over the requirements. Thanks, Head.Boy.Hog (Talk To Me) 16:51, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
