Forums: Index Help desk I'm kinda confused on how to make a stub page better

Well, I went to the community pool and then went to starting somewhere. I found Metroid Prime, and it said it was a stub. So, I was like Metroid Prime, good times, and then I type in all this stuff that I thought would help, and 5 min later it was erased. So now I wanna know how I can help without getting 20 minutes of information deleted.

I may be able to help.

1)Be organized. Many edits are reverted because of bad speling and grammer (misspelling intended).

2)How much importance does it have to Smash? How much representation? Ask yourself that before adding information.

3)Based on #2, should you describe the game fully? If it has low representation, talk about the main points only. If it has over 9000 objects of representation, then it can have some extra (but not too much).

Hope that helped!L33t Silvie I see wat u did thar... 02:42, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Oh, and sign your posts on talk pages/forums. four tildes (~) does it.L33t Silvie I see wat u did thar... 02:43, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it did. and i'm guessing 17,000 was a little much. But what does four tildes (~) mean? Stridentgear03:14, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

The little squiggly line in the middle of the parentheses is a tilde. I meant type four of the squigglies.L33t Silvie I see wat u did thar... 03:44, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Sometimes you can make a stub page better by realizing that it is at an appropriate length and breadth of detail, and simply remove the tag. Most stub pages just require some expansion or elaboration on the content. If you know something about the page you're on that it doesn't have, feel free to add it!
