How you can helpEdit

We'd love to have your input so that we can make this a great community! So please just choose your favourite aspect of Sherlock Holmes or it's adaptations, and start editing! Don't worry if you've never edited a wiki before, all edits are welcome, not matter how small. If you'd like to practice editing in a place where it doesn't matter if you make a mistake then try out our Sandbox.

Anonymous edits are more than welcome, but we'd love it if you chose to create an account. That way we can welcome you personally and you can easily keep track of the edits you've made, discuss the subject or chat with other users. Logged in users also see less ads and their IP address remains hidden.

Guidelines for behaviourEdit

  • Follow Wikia's Terms of Use
  • Follow the policies of this wiki: Baker Street Wiki:Policy
  • Be polite and welcoming and treat other people as you would like to be treated
  • No bashing - bashing is a harsh, gratuitous, prejudicial attack on a person, group, or subject. Critical discussion is, of course, still allowed.
  • No abuse. Abuse can be but is not limited to - racism, sexism, homophobia, insults, swearing, shouting (typing all in caps), etc. Basically treat people as you would like to be treated. Remember that there is a real person behind each username, don't say things online that you wouldn't say in real life.

Discussion is always a good thing. Most problems can be avoided by discussing things with your fellow editors before making major changes - try to always make that your first action. This especially applies when undoing edits other people have made - starting a discussion about things before making big changes can help avoid unnecessary arguments. In situations where you feel discussion isn't needed then the edit summary box should always be used, with a full reason for/description of the change given.

If you feel you've got a problem you can't solve yourself them don't hesitate to ask an admin for help. If you don't want to do that you can always go to Community Central for advice.
