Hi, Phollenback! Welcome, and thanks for joining NetHackWiki!

  • The How to help and Style guide pages are excellent starting points.
  • Special:Recentchanges is a great first stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, and where you can help.
  • Questions? Need help? You can ask at the Community Portal, the forum, or on the discussion page associated with each article! Just remember to sign those posts with four tildes: ~~~~. That will expand to create a signature.

You can put {{NAOplayer|NAO player account}} on your user page to link to your NAO player account. Capitalization matters.

We are really happy to have you here, and look forward to working with you!

This is an automated greeting.

Capitalization of common nouns

Hi, I've noticed in many of your recent edits you have been capitalizing the names of in-game items, e.g. "Wand of create monster" or "Dragon scale mail" when not used at the beginning of a sentence. Also for some things that are not items, as in this edit.

This is not the style used on the wiki: these things are common nouns, and do not get capitalized. I notice you're only capitalizing the first word, and what seems to be only in wikilinks - note that the first letter of a link is not case sensitive. E.g. netHack and NetHack both take you to the same, non-redirected page. Later letters are case sensitive: Nethack goes to a redirect page, and nEtHaCk doesn't exist even as a redirect. Thus, you can make links like wand of create monster while avoiding a bothersome capital W in the page text. --Phol ende wodan (talk) 00:32, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks! I think I picked that up from some slash'em extended pages. I'll fix it and be consistent in the future. 00:48, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. Go Team Phol! :) --Phol ende wodan (talk) 00:51, 11 April 2021 (UTC)


Hey Phil, thanks for all the help with FIQHack information recently. Hoping to see you pop into Hardfought sometime soon.

(Also your website link appears to be misformatted, so I did a courtesy fix for you). --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 17:45, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
