Minor typo
* '''Using decent [[Help:Edit Summary|edit summaries]]''' will prevent confusion. Try to explain ''what'' you did and ''why'' you did it as often as possible. If you need to elaborate, simply conclude your edit summary with "see talk", and promptly explain the edit on the talk page.
* '''When in doubt, discuss.''' [[UESPWiki:Consensus|Consensus]], even if it is between just two people, will aid in the improvement of articles. We have all the time in the world to discuss changes, and we have plenty of places to do it. If you discuss changes before you make them, you can reach a consensus faster and people will have a better understanding about why you are making the changes.
* '''Sign your comments on talk pages.''' How do people know what comments are yours if you don't sign them? You should add four tildes (<tt>~~<nowiki/>~~</tt>) to the end of all of your comments on talk pages. Just make sure you don't get carried away and do the same thing on main articles, unless of course they are [[:Category:Message Boards|message boards]] such as the [[UESPWiki:Community Portal|community portal]].
* '''Adhere to copyright.''' All content on the wiki, except for images, should be compatible with our [[UESPWiki:Copyright_and_Ownership|copyright license]]. You agree that all of your contributions are licensed under the license, and may be edited, altered, or removed by other contributors.
