What to do if I got 'red links'?

Like the Hitchhiker's Guide: Don't panic!

Perhaps there's a typo producers or genres for example have to be written as given in the Wiki.

If there's a new artist not in the Wiki, fill the name in the jigsaw field and the page for the aritst will be created later.

If there's already an image in the Wiki but you got a better one (resolution or size or quality) feel free to upload it. Old images will be deleted (to save space) or the old one also can be restored.

So, every 'error' can be handled.

Things to do

  • Check your "Contributions" (right top) to spot changes of your pages: helps to avoid errors next time.
  • Suggestions and questions: mail the admin.

Things not to do

  • Do not save a page a dozen times by editing small parts. Be aware every storing of the page will save the whole text again. Please use "Show preview" first all the time.
  • Do not edit any template: this will corrupt many pages where it is used.
