Hi and welcome!

Hello! Or did I already say that? Welcome! (I swear I said that already...)

Anyway, I have a few constructive comments after your first foray into creating explanation pages. You did really well for a first timer! But, the imagesize option in the {{comic}} header should only be used to resize absurdly large comics like 954: Chin-Up Bar or 1079: United Shapes; but due to a bug in the way this specific wiki is set up, image resizing isn't working correctly, so we're leaving it blank all the time until there's a fix for it. Category links don't need the leading colon, that's just if you want to make an inline link to the category page, also, the comic header takes care of adding the Category:Comics category. Second-to-last, if there's a wikipedia page for something you're talking about, add a link to the wikipedia page using the {{w}} template (usage is described on the page linked). Last big one, transcripts only use 1 indent, and we put an extra return between panels.

You'll pick up more tips and tricks as you keep editing, so please, keep editing! If you want a great big, huge, obnoxious compendium of helpful tips I'm compiling a Style Guide to help newbies. Thanks for helping to expand the wiki.

Thank you so much for the critique and resources! (They helped with page linking!)
This is odd... I am used to adding extra returns, yet I missed them here? Then again, I never really made real article editing until I joined this site...
(By the way, yes; the choice for the first comic I explained was deliberate.

That last section

Yeah, that last one in your userpage. The hobbies one. I'm gonna make you delete it all tomorrow. Davidy22[talk] 14:59, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

...all done. (I would still like to hear your reasoning for this ruling, though. I do not mean to rebel against you; I simply have no sense of perspective.) Greyson (talk) 15:02, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
NOOOO I WAS GONNA USE THAT AS A CHECKLIST. I meant I was gonna make them all so that you'd delete the section. Bah. 00:00, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
I undid the deletion. I thought that I was in trouble for putting the "unexplained hobbies" list. I am so sorry. (I am probably autistic.) Greyson (talk) 15:23, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
