I guess since the other sysops have particular specialities, I should list what I'm interested in / good at. So, if you need help with theories, the timeline, or episode summaries, leave a message or see below.

Theories Formatting

I spent a few good (but sick) hours cleaning up formatting for the various Theories pages. So, if you could, follow the following format (stated in Help:Theories):

  • State some citation from canon (either aired episodes or graphic novels released). After stating an example from this source (not an interpretation of the event), cite the occurrence. (eg. (Genesis) ). If there are no examples, simply put "None."
  • Use the templates {{plus}}, {{minus}}, and {{note}} (on a new line or with <br> in front of the tag) in notes to expand on the theory. If the point you're making doesn't help or hurt the theory, note it with the note tag. If you're refuting a previous point, such as the following, go to a new line and indent.
|-
| [[Peter]] will no longer get the scar. || None. ||
{{plus}}It's possible that Peter received the scar in the timeline in which Claire was not saved.

:{{minus}}This would create a causality [[paradox]] for [[Future Hiro]]. 
|-

This will yield a nicely indented, easy-to-follow argument:

Theory Citation Notes
Waffles are delicious. Hiro states they are delicious. (Distractions)

- Hiro's an idiot.

+ No, you're an idiot. Hiro's a genius.
Masi Oka is a genius, and he portrays Hiro.

Hope that helps for those looking to add theories. I get nit-picky about it since a) I used to compete nationally in debate and like structured arguments, and b) I spent a lot of time cleaning up the formatting.

Timeline

Again, a lot of effort into making the timeline work. So, just a few tips.

  • 1) Document justification if the date is not obvious. Just comment the justification. Example:
==October 4, 2006==
* [[Future Hiro]] visits [[Peter]] to deliver [[the message]].
<!-- In Five Years Gone, the note on the string web shows this date -->
  • 2) If the larger unit of time does not contain more than one event, use the most specific unit for the larger denomination.
eg. If the only event in 1985 is my birthday, do not do the following:
==1985==


===February, 1985===
Bob was born.
Instead, do the following:
==February 13, 1985==
I popped out.
  • 3) Until the date standardization is done on the site, use the standard of Month DD, YYYY for listing an event.
  • 4) On Template:Infobox event, ensure that the date is done in the following format:
[[Timeline:October 2006#October 4, 2006|October 4, 2006]]
  • 5) On the Possible Futures timeline, should the situation occur, note that the future is a different future than the previously known future. For example, when Sylar was originally the bomb, once Peter became it, it should be noted that Peter became the bomb. This should generally coincide with the Dark Future article for some reference.

To-Do list

I'd like to see the following with some help from any contributors. If you would like to help out, it would be greatly appreciated.
