About Me

I am known as Solusprime19 on TFW2005. I read, write and occasionally collect.

My Story

My story is a large ongoing continuity with a wide range of characters, combining elements from several universes, mainly Beast Wars and the Unicron Trilogy. Elements from Robots In Disguise are also used, as well as other universes.


Welcome to Wikialpha. Are you going to be copying a lot of articles from Wikipedia? I can help you learn how to copy the images tonight after I get home from work. Mathewignash (talk) 16:51, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes I should be starting soon. I already tried a test article to see how it works. Its going well, but I really need to know how to add pictures. Is it the same as Wikipedia, or is it unique? Thanks! Mercatorprojection (talk) 16:59, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Yes same. You just need to tag them, but we have a simple template asking you to describe what the picture is and where you are using it. Check out one of my pictues and copy the template. Mathewignash (talk) 17:00, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

I put the first Sledge picture in there for you to copy. I also moved the page to "Sledge (Transformers)" to keep the name of the article the same as on Wikipedia, and added a small note to the top of the page saying the article was based on one from wikipedia, we have to do that for legal reasons.

Thanks. just put in another picture from Wikipedia. how does it look? Mercatorprojection (talk) 17:38, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Pretty good, but missing the licensing info. Check out how it is now, I added the licensing. Can you add that too in the future? Mathewignash (talk) 22:45, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Wow. It seems like as soon as I post the article it gets scheduled for deletion. Weird, isn't it?Mercatorprojection (talk) 14:10, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

One of the deletionists on Wikipedia used to stalk me, and nominate any TF article for deletion whenever I edited it. Mathewignash (talk) 02:17, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

You know we have a "save article" function that copies over articles from Wikipedia for you? LOOK HERE Mathewignash (talk) 02:24, 20 February 2014 (UTC)


Yes, you can write a summry of fanfiction here. Heck, as long as the author is okay with it, post the fiction itself in the article! Mathewignash (talk) 12:53, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Why are you writing a summary that I want to have? CityOfSilver 06:21, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
