Welcome words[edit]

Like most other wikis, anyone can edit these pages, and no one actually "owns" the wiki or its content.

By all means be bold in your edits, adding content and information that you believe others will want to know about.

But please also remember to collaborate with others, be friendly, discuss differences of opinion, and be mindful of the work others have done on this project before you got here. Remember that they are, like you, volunteers and fans, and they like what they've done here. Approach your edits in the spirit of improving the wiki, rather than "putting your stamp on it" and your presence here will be a blessing, not one that is resented.

Try to be accurate in your statements and leave links and/or other verifiable source information in articles you edit. Feel free to add your opinions and feelings where it's appropriate and where it's clearly labelled as such.

Site History[edit]

State of Affairs Wiki was founded by Lcawte on the 25th November 2014, a day after the second episode of the show (Secrets and Lies) aired. The site was set up on the ShoutWiki wiki-farm at stateofaffairs.shoutwiki.com.

For first-time editors[edit]

Please see help page for many helpful editing tips and hints. If you can't find an answer to your question there, ask it from an admin.

Is this your first time here? Please consider feeling your way around, learning how to edit by hitting the "edit" tab, and not starting off your career as an editor by vandalizing pages (if you add things to pages to "test" how to edit, it's vandalism if you hit the 'save page' button).

There will be a great temptation to make a dozen edits in your first hour or two here. That's GREAT! But please make them quality edits that will make you a valued member of a team, not a "spoiler" who ruins what others have worked hard to create.

While it's not required before you start editing, registering and adopting a user name is a good idea. When people see your IP number - rather than a user name - they may assume you are here to vandalize pages, not contribute. If you are here to contribute, you'll want to establish a "good name". You don't have to, of course.

Words of Wisdom[edit]

  1. Start editing.
  2. Add articles and improve others.
  3. Don't blank information and don't add nonsense.
