User related

  • How do I create an account?

Click on "Log in/Create an account", located in the top-right corner of your screen. Click on "Create an account" and fill in your information. Make sure the e-mail you provided is a valid one as you will need to confirm your address before you're allow to edit.

  • I didn't get a confirmation. What do I do?

Check your spam and junk boxes. If it's not there, check to see if you typed your address correctly. If you did, there should be an option to resend your confirmation.

  • Is there a limit on how many times we can edit our user page?

There isn't a set limit but preferably three times a day.

  • Someone keeps editing my user page!

Depending on situation, you either put something on your page that broke the rules or your page was vandalized. In the latter case, revert the edit (if an admin hasn't done so already) and contact an admin immediately so proper action can be taken.

  • How can I archive my talk page?

Create a new page under your user name and give it particular name that fits what you're archiving (ex. User:Sweden/Talk Page Archive 1) and copy and paste the text into the page. You can then clear out your current talk page for space.

Wiki related

  • My edits keep getting reverted, why?

Your edits may not of been needed, incorrect, already in the article, or poorly written. If you're unsure as to why your edits were removed, ask the user politely as to why it was removed or leave a message on the article's talk page.

  • My page was deleted, why?

Your page may not of been needed, already on Hetalia Articles, or it was poorly written. If you're unsure why your page was deleted, ask the administrator who deleted it.

  • How come I can't remove comments on talk pages?

Comments on talk pages are important to the community and it's considered to be bad behaviour to remove them, whether it's your own or someone else's. Removing comments is against the rules and is grounds for a short ban.

  • Why can't I edit [page name]?

The majority of pages here are open for editing to all users but if you can't edit a page, it means it's under protection. The reasons can vary but usually it is because it was prone to vandalism or it's a high traffic page. Protected pages are usually only protected to anonymous and new users only but pages like the main page and certain templates are protected to administrators only.

  • I'm new and I want to help out! What can I do?

There's always something to do here at the wiki! Check out the stubs, articles needing cleanup, the wanted pages, or the outdated articles for ideas on what to help with.

  • Can I copy content from elsewhere?

Absolutely not. If it's been discovered that you've been repeatedly stealing content from other sites, you will be given a ban. If you discover stolen content, please let an admin know right away.
