Hello Biker7766, and welcome to the Roller Coaster Wiki! Thanks for your contributions. Make sure to personalize your user page, and tell us a little about yourself.

There are many ways you can help out:

If you need help, the help pages will give you an insight into editing here at Coasterpedia. If you're still stuck, feel free to leave me a message.

We look forward to editing with you, so pull down your restraint and enjoy the ride! MontagnaMagica (talk) 14:29, May 5, 2013 (UTC)

Admiship[edit source]

Hey, Biker! I was meaning to send you a personal welcome sometime soon... You're off to a great start here!

Normally, I don't promote new users to adminship right away. This is simply because it takes time to get used to the workings of the wiki. If you're still creating content and helping out several weeks/months from now, I can give you some extra rights to use for the good of the wiki.

Thanks for asking! MontagnaMagica|Talk 23:53, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Extra Questions[edit source]

I'm sending two messages at once! :P Just curious, what's your favorite roller coaster, and why? Also, how did you find this wiki? MontagnaMagica|Talk 23:53, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome[edit source]

Hey, Biker! I haven't formally greeted you. Welcome to the wiki! I hope to see more of you. Ruler of the Coasters (talk) 14:42, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

Uploading Images[edit source]

Hi, Biker! Sorry you were "yelled at" here. Basically, the rule is that we can't upload just any image we find on the internet. It has to be in the public domain (no copyrights), or we have to get permission from the picture's owner. We also should try to give credit in the file's page (I can show you how to do that part). I wasn't the one that reprimanded you as we have several users here all contributing at once. Now that you know the rules better, I'm going to e-mail Johnny Upside-Down to see if he'd approve of his pictures being used. MontagnaMagica|Talk 20:33, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

Signing Your Posts[edit source]

Here's another "rule" that will be useful. When you're sending messages on talk pages (like this one): You can type ~~~~ after your posts and it will sign your user name and date afterwards. This makes it easier to see who's talking! MontagnaMagica|Talk 20:38, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

Picture and Video Sources[edit source]

CoasterImage.com, Coasterforce.com, GreatAdventureHistory.com are the only ones that I can recall having specific permission to use. Anything on Wikimedia or Wikipedia is free to use anytime. Let me know if you see a site that could be a good resource, and I'll ask on your behalf.

As for video, all public video-sharing sites that I know of allow the video to be linked anywhere, so there aren't any issues with that (We usually use YouTube here, but Dailymotion and Vimeo are acceptable as well to name a few).

You've actually given me a good idea now. I'm going to compile a list of websites that we can use when I get a chance. MontagnaMagica|Talk 00:01, May 8, 2013 (UTC)
