Thanks for the welcome! I've been using this wiki a lot to keep track of things, so I though it'd be nice to give back. =)

Hey would you mind fixing the sources I provide? I can't seem to figure out how the system works here. Special/Command--Ashendant 08:41, 16 June 2014 (EDT)

Not at all. The template system here is interesting but not well enough documented, I've been doing it by observation, trial and error mostly. I've actually thought about doing that globally, changing all of the references that link directly to the comic with URL's link to the wiki. Just been kinda busy with the LIAB panel descriptions. (-_-); but anyway, the sources work like this: you write {{ref|[[EXAMPLEBOOK 1]]}} will give you a generic in-line. reference. If you want to get all fancy with a Citations section, you make a {{ref|EXAMPLE}} in the text! then at the bottom you add the new section with bullets, each numbered bullet needs a {{note|EXAMPLE}}. --Spicymancer 12:08, 16 June 2014 (EDT)
I think my biggest difficulty is remembering the codes for each archive (currently there are 6). I've seen some pages use {{erf|1|22}} and it links automatic to those pages(it's much simpler that way), but I can't find a way to link it outside of the two main books.--Ashendant 12:52, 16 June 2014 (EDT)
We could make the Intermission/Epilogues be 1.5 and 2.5, with book zero being 0. and possible kickstarter stories having a KS. I have no idea how to do this.--Ashendant 12:54, 16 June 2014 (EDT)
I don't know how to do that either. Most of what I know about this wiki is self taugh, and the in site how to's are space on that. That said, I try to avoid using the {{erf| code to make references since it takes readers out of the wiki. I don't know if there's actually policy on this, but personally I think it'd enhance the wiki experience to send the reader to a comic page full of wiki markup rather than to the comic proper, it'd keep them clicking. ;D --Spicymancer 13:57, 16 June 2014 (EDT)
