Welcome!

Hello, CaAuthor, and welcome to the ISFDB Wiki! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I hope you enjoy editing here! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will insert your name and the date. If you need help, check out the community portal, or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome!

Bio:Graham Diamond

I have moved the biographical sketch you supplied to Bio:Graham Diamond, as we use the "Bio" namespace for biograhical sketches of authors, artists, and other people.

I trust that you understand that by posting it here, you have released the text under a Creative Commons attribution license, so that anyone may re-use or alter it, here or elsewhere, with no restrictions except a requirement to credit you.

I have added our standard biography header, which links to the author page, in this case Graham Diamond. As this gives the bibliography as known to the ISFDB, it is somewhat redundant to cite a detailed bibliography in a biographical sketch, but I have not removed it in this case.

Welcome to the ISFDB, and I hope you will contribute entries on other books you have information about. The links above will guide you in getting started, as will Help:Getting Started. Feel free to aask any questions at the Help desk. -DES Talk 17:28, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Author data

An author's legal name should be entered in the format "Lastname, Firstname Middlename". I've corrected the submission you made to update Graham Diamond's data. I also rejected the two further attempts to do so, which appear to have been duplicates of your first submission. Please give us some time to moderate a submission before making a duplicate one. We'll get to it eventually, usually in less than an hour. Mhhutchins 19:55, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

Bibliographic comments page for Chocolate Lenin

I deleted the page you created for this publication. This page is meant for bibliographic comments about the book. Synopses or reviews should not be entered on this page. Mhhutchins 22:12, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Uploading images

Hello, I've seen that uploaded in our system what looks like a photograph of yourself. What do you intend to do with it? Hauck 17:35, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Biographic & Bibliographic pages

Hello, you're happily mixing both types of pages (it's not the first time it seems). I've deleted them both. Please respect our policy, the bibliography goes on the bibliographic pages (with the correct header) and the biography (neutral please so avoid "successful cult classic" or "well received") on the biographic page. As you also repeated all this on your user page, let me remind you that we're not an advertising place. Hauck 17:59, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
