Just some Tips

Hey man, I've noticed that you are sort of new to this place, and I wanted to just let you know how I feel about them from my perspective. A lot of them are honestly Needing Work level articles, with their constant formatting and grammar errors, along with lack of some much needed formal language. I do have a few suggestions to help improve this. The first one, of course, is to look at the Rules, Tips, and Guidelines page, which basically explains itself. The second one is to get an extension for your computer called Grammarly. It basically helps you with all punctuation, spelling, and grammar mistakes, and has helped me correct articles diligently. One little tip is a bit of philosophy I have tried to adhere to when doing anything; measure once, cut twice. Basically, look at the edits you have made on your page before hitting save. Instead, hit preview and look at the things you may have gotten wrong. The final tip I have for you is to look at some other articles such as the ones made by users Ryanskip and Paul McCartney as they are very good examples of articles on this wiki. I hope these tips find you well and that this paragraph doesn't seem too intimidating. After all, I was in your position at one point, too. Good luck and happy editing! --Tripson (talk) 19:18, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Some Advice

Hey, SOMEGUYWHODOESTHINGS, I know that you are a new user here, but you can't just rush making articles of poor quality with little thought put into them and expect other users to fix them for you. There is a reason why the Rules, guidelines and tips page exists so it can help new users like you learn how to make a proper Lost Media Wiki article. In particular:

  • Avoiding plagiarism at all costs (regardless of how good a source you use is); my point is to be original in your descriptions and don't just copy and paste it from another site as plagiarism is a big no-no here.
  • Learn how to use proper capitalization of words and better grammar.
  • Take your time to write an article and do more research on it.
  • And finally, look at the other good quality articles on the wiki to give you some idea on how you should write and format them; you can even take examples from me as I was first nervous about submitting an article to the wiki, but I took my time doing research on the topics I wanted to cover and gained confidence as I was typing and l listened to music to relieve my stress.

All I want to get from you is to have a better understanding of writing articles and taking your time with them rather than just rushing them out repeatedly in a poor state. I'm not trying to be mean or rude to you; I'm just giving you constructive criticism and I want to see you improve your writing skills. Happy Brian (talk, contribs) 23:40, 23 May 2018 (UTC)
