Welcome to the forum[edit]

Welcome to HoMM3-wiki, or one of them. Now that you have a profile, I would like to ask you to sign your talk posts with ~~~~, whcih is a kind of standard. Also, if you want "more power" you should contact User:Terra. –Kapteeni Ruoska 14:42, 4 July 2014 (CEST)

Thanks for showing me around! I still need to learn more about the programming and conventions in Wikis, but that was one of the reasons to post here in the first :place, so your help is much appreciated. Given that this is a post in a talk page, as :you referred to above, I can test right away what the above-mentioned code does (just allow me a few attempts and some consulting of Wiki Help to get it right ;-)).

Spelling and grammar[edit]

As you obviously are either native English speaker or otherwise experienced with it, perhaps you could tell me some answers to some spelling issues. First that comes to mind is capitalization. For example, are creature names spelled with capital letters? –Kapteeni Ruoska 09:17, 24 July 2014 (CEST)

I must say you caught me there, and I'm sure I haven't been using capitalization consistently either :-). The way I see it, a Black Dragon is still just a dragon that is black (not a Dragon that is Black), so I don't think there is a specific grammar rule at work here. But I admit it can look nice to write black dragon as Black Dragon, and I notice that the tutorial consistently mentions the names of creatures, spells, towns, hero classes, buildings, adventure map locations etc. with capital letters, so I am fine with doing that too (and more consistently than I am doing now). What do you think?

I have tried to copy spellings and specially capitalization rules from the manual. Perhaps for the sake of consistensy we can try to hold that principle. --Kapteeni Ruoska 06:13, 29 July 2014 (CEST)
