What's a talk page?  the preceding unsigned post by Cel-Shaded Deku (contribs) at 14:14, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

A Talk page is where users can discuss the corresponding article. More specifically, about things like organization, what to and what not to include, questioning validity... things that affect the article, rather than its subject matter (as would be the case on a forum). A User Talk page (like this one) is for leaving messages and having discussions with other users, about their contributions or their User page. Since Talk pages involve discussions between users, always remember to sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~). And when replying to another comment, indent yours with a colon. (if replying to a reply, use two colons, etc. up to a point) << Locke(T·C) >> 23:15, January 15, 2012 (CST)


Glad to see you editing. First off, you don't need to type out your name when you sign your name. If you look at when you do, you'll see that it awkwardly puts your name after your name and date. Just use four tildes (~~~~) or press the second to last button on the toolbar above the edit box. It puts your name in there for you without any need to type it yourself.
Second, for using images, it's really pretty simple. All you do is take the full name of the image, like File:OdolwaRemains.jpg, and put brackets around it. Like: [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg]] This places it directly on a page. To put an image on to the left side of a page, you put the word "left" after a pipe ( a | ) within the brackets, like this: [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg|left]]. To place it on the right side, you do the same, only with the word "right" instead, like this: [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg|right]]. If you don't put in left or right, it'll place it to the left. If a file is too large to cleanly display on a page, you specify a pixel amount that will look good on the page, usually this is under 300 pixels. You just put that amount after another pipe within the brackets, like this: [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg|left|200px]]. You can also put images in thumbnails with captions. For that, you add the word "thumb" after another pipe and for a caption you add a sentence in it (it can have wiki links in it). Like this: [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg|left|thumb|200px|[[Link]] obtaining Odolwa's Remains.]]
In an infobox, you use the very first one, combined with a size amount and you add it on a line that has a pipe and the word image followed by an equals sign in the infobox, like this |image = [[File:OdolwaRemains.jpg|200px]]. That will add it to the infobox.
When you are adding these images, it's a good idea to preview the page first with the "show preview" button to see what the image looks like this before saving. Once everything looks good, then you should save the page.
If you have anymore questions, just ask!— Emma (Talk) 12:34, June 10, 2012 (CDT)
