On this page you can request editing assistance from other wiki users who have volunteered to assist. (Stressed because none of the volunteers is obligated in any way. So, be polite and be appreciative!)

Instructions: Click or tap "Edit" next to either of the next two sections, enter your help request, and "Save changes" to submit.

  • Just add your own request, please. Don't remove any other text that's already there!
  • Link to the article you'd like help with, so we know where to look.
  • You can just give the name, if you don't know how to create a link.
  • If possible, also briefly describe what you'd like us to help with.

Someone will take a look, and do what they can to assist.

Writing help

(Requests for copy-editing, grammar, spelling, or other English language assistance.

Wiki coding help

(Requests for assistance with wikicode in articles: Creating links, adding images, using {{templates}}, etc.)

Missions accomplished

(Completed items from the above. Will eventually be moved to the archive.)

I added some flavour text to the skill Disarming Smile. May someone kindly check it, and change any grammar or spelling mistakes. Also, I am not sure if the added stuff is enough to consider it not a Stub anymore. Thanks in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Orgm (talkcontribs) 13 October 2019‎

Hey Orgm! Took a look over Disarming smile, it's great! Only minor changes made. I decided to leave the {{stub}} in place, since the content you added is great, and I kinda want to read more about the adventures of the disarming protagonist! :) -- Djonni (talk) 20:23, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I have just made a page about "Headless Chicken". Can someone kindly add a picture of the infamous Miracle MIKE, the headless chicken from another wikipedia page. After the picture has been added, I'll add more stuff in there. Thank you very much.

Hey Orgm!
I've been taking a look for pictures of Mike, and the problem is that I can't find any original photos of Mike that are free to use — the only photos I can find are copyrighted by news services (Time, Getty, etc).
There's one exception, kinda: this image, taken of a Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum replica of Mike, is free to use under the ShareAlike license which makes it fine to use on the wiki.
I mention it because all the old, original black and white photos of Miracle Mike are actually kinda cool! The ShareAlike license permits us to "remix, transform, and build upon the material for any purpose, even commercially," which means that if you wanted, we could edit it to be all retro-looking.
So, would you like the picture linked above from Flickr as-is, or would you like us to try to make it look like a retro newspaper picture from the 1940s? 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 07:42, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
A 40's looking image would be great. Thanks Djonni for checking different source images. I even learned something new today about image licenses.
Well, I'm not really an image expert, but I had a go at making it look like an old newspaper photo — I used a dot halftone pattern with a sepia-ish, old-paper-ish tint. I don't have image editing software on my work laptop these so it's about the best I could rustle up, haha... I won't take it personally if anyone uploads a new version over mine that looks better (just be sure to use the same original so that the licensing is all good). But at least it should be good enough to allow you to keep going on with the article Orgm! 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 20:34, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Djonni. I'm am now presently embarking on a mini-quest to make all chicken related monsters have pages. And if they already do, I'll improve them. After that, I'll be back here in the help section to ask a making of a clustered links of the gallus gallus domesticus chicken species.
