NEW USERS GUIDE
Welcome to the quick-start guide for new users of the Winx Club Wiki. We are always glad to have new users as the amount of information that needs to be added/organized is bigger than the Omega Dimension! Be sure to check out the Beginner's Guide as well.

Wikiquette

Main article: Winx Club Wiki:Policy
Main article: Help:Community guidelines

No matter where you are writing, do not use the wiki as a tool to insult, attack, or threaten other users. When discussing opinions, keep it civil and rational. Also, on a wiki whose content is targeted toward children, keep the content, including images, videos, and text, user-friendly. No swearing or content of obscene or sexual nature. Do not abuse any features or distribute spam. Violators of these guidelines will be warned and, if need be, blocked.

Accounts

Main article: Help:Sockpuppet

Sockpuppets (clone accounts) will be permanently blocked, so make sure you have only one account. Wiki policy discourages sharing accounts, but If this does occur, you are held responsible for whatever contributions are made in your name.

Profiles

Main article: Help: Profile

Images

Example

Example 1

We allow users to upload images not pertaining to the series, as well as fanart, but they must be kept on your user page/gallery ONLY and marked with {{UserImage}}, lest they be deleted. The maximum amount of images allowed on your personal gallery is 450.

Videos

We allow users to upload videos not pertaining to the series, but they must be kept on your user page/gallery ONLY and marked with {{UserImage}}, lest they be deleted.

Achievements

Main article: Help: Achievements
Badge-welcome

Welcome badge.

Achievements encourage contributions by awarding users with badges as they make certain types of edits. Logged in users can earn special badges simply by participating in any community that has Achievements enabled. Badges are awarded automatically as a user completes the tasks associated with them. Available and achieved badges are listed on user pages. Our community has a leaderboard to showcase all the achievements and top badge winners.

Page Protection

Main article: Help:Page protection

Page protection is the ability to limit who can edit a page. Administrators and Content Moderators have the ability to both protect and unprotect pages should the need arise. As a new user, many pages will be locked until you are completely registered. This will take about three days. You can ask a staff member to unlock pages for you at any time. Be sure to let them know when you are done so they can relock it.

Talk Pages

Main article: Help:Talk page

A talk page is one of several places where you can speak with your fellow editors.

Article

Article talk pages are primarily used to hash out improvements to a single page.

User

User talk pages are used on user pages.

Identification

Signatures

Main article: Help:Signature

Signatures identify you as the author of a block of text. They should contain an automatic link to your user page, making it easy for others to learn more about you and communicate with you. To sign your name in Source Mode, type four tildes in a row: (~~~~) or click the signature button above the edit box. To make a custom signature, visit this page.

Example Signature

Talkboxes

Talkboxes are a nice way to tell users apart on a talk page. Some users complain that they slow down their devices, so using one is your choice. The template is here for all to use. If you need help, contact one of our administrators.

Example
Username (talk) - “Quote.”
{{{text}}}

Userboxes

Userboxes are a convenient way to tell the community about your personalities, hobbies, etc. See the userboxes listed here.

Personalities
Friendly This user is friendly and loves making friends.

Editing

Main article: Help: Editing

Editing on this wiki is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting. Practice your editing in the sandbox.

Mass Communication

Do not promote, solicit, or advertise anything unrelated to the series and make sure all links are free of viruses/spyware.

Forums

Main article: Help: Forum

The Forum feature provides a central location for discussion about the series and other matters important to the community. To ask questions, visit the help desk. To hold votings on important matters, visit the watercooler.

Blogs

Main article: Help: Blogs

Blogs are articles written by one person that can be commented on and organized into a listing like a typical blog. Blogs must be kept on-topic, with no fan-fiction, fan-art, fan-videos, fan-characters, etc. This is a canon wiki, not a fanon one. If you have any fan content, feel free to make blogs for that on the fanon site.

Chat

Main article: Help: Chat

Chat is a feature that allows near-instantaneous messaging between users.

Discussions

Main article: Help: Discussions

Discussions is a conversation feature used to share your thoughts and opinions on anything related to the series.
