    • Discussions should be conducted in the context of other pages in this wiki; either through dispassionate explanation on an article page, or more subjective discussion on a Talk page.
    • You are also asked to please create a user page breifly introducing yourself. Once you are logged in, you can find a link to your user page in the links at the top-right of any page.
