Thomasfanaz, welcome to Train Spotting World

If this is the first time you've used a wiki you may have a few questions. Most of the answers are obvious. To learn to edit, why not just dive in? At the foot of the editing window there is a help link. This opens in a new window and gives you a good overview of wiki syntax and stuff.

If you would like some introductory help, look at being adopted by an experienced user

There are very few rules here. The best summary is:

  • Respect other people's Copyright
  • Behave to others as you would like them to behave to you
  • Do no harm

This is not an encyclopedia. Pages here do not need to comply with encyclopaedic notions or citations or neutrality. Just dive in and start.

It's always worth having a look at Station announcements every so often, too.

One of the first things you might want to do is to place {{talktome}} at the top of your talk page (this page) above this welcome message. Taking heed of what it says will make it much easier for you to follow discussions on talk pages.

And while you browse the site, and especially when you've created something truly worthwhile, why not Digg and also tag on del.icio.us – the tools are in the left hand menu. The more Diggs (etc) we have the better, because Diggs and del.icio.us links add to our findability. The best way to find out about them is to click on the tool. Each is different and each gives you the chance to "rate" any article here. Or anywhere else come to that!

Best yet you have a Spotting World Blog if you want it. Have a look at your User page. There is a link to let you create your blog. This is part of what Spotting World does for you. Or just go to blogs.spottingworld.com. You can use your blog for any lawful purpose. It's yours to do with as you like. Anyone can read your blog once you create it, but only you can write to it.

There is also a live chat room - see the left hand menu

Is Fan Fiction your thing? Check out our Fan Fiction area for further information.

We have several workforces online to collaborate in editing articles of various different topics. Go to Trains:Workforces for more information. You may also create or propose a new workforce. Remember TrainSpottingWorld is what you want it to be.

If you need help with anything, try the FAQs or the Help pages, or pop over to the Station Cafe, and ask there.

And don't forget to tell your friends about us!

For the latest goings on, take a look at the current issue of our newsletter, The Transport Journal here. You can subscribe for the newsletter to be delivered to your user talk page here.

Hello!

Hello there Thomasfanaz!

In addition to the message above, HELLO and Welcome to Train Spotting World!

My name is BG7, and I am an admin (or "madmin") here at Trains.

If you need any help, please just ask me!

Can I ask what your main interests in Trains are?

Also, you may be wondering how I, and some other users, have fancy signatures? Well, if you want one, just let me know!

Thanks a lot,

BG7 11:35, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
