WELCOME TO: The Borgias Wiki

MODERATORS & UP OPENING MESSAGE
This Wiki is primarily fan run, what this means is that the wiki has no involvement from Showtime, Wetpaint or their partners. The people who run the site (moderators, administrators and the creator *more on us later*) take free time out of their day to make this wiki what it is. This wiki just doesn't cover the Showtime series but has content of the historical people and the places and culture of the time the characters lived. Remember this a FUN and SAFE environment for fans just not of the show but of the history as well. We appreciate your input and look forward to seeing you on our threads and updating our galleries and pages!

Rules Concerning Editing, Editing Pages, Adding Pages
Page edits are essential to growing our site, and we welcome all of your ideas and contributions. When you create pages or edit pages we request you keep a few things in mind.

1. Be mindful of others work....if there is already content on a page, by all means add to that page, but it is not acceptable to erase others work to add your own. If content is not accurate or you wish to change something, IM the original contributer and let them know why you would like to change their work. Agreements can be reached.
2. When creating pages, try to add tags for the page. This is how we get our site recognised on the web when people search a subject.
3. When you complete your page, please add links to other pages on the site....even if it is to return to the Main page. Links provide a visitor to that page with options of other pages to visit. A page with no links is a dead end.
4. If you observe questionable content or language on a page, please notify one of the Moderators.

A FEW THINGS TO TAKE NOTE OF1. When taking content from other sources to add to this site, please make it is your own work. By this, we mean to put information in your own words. Try not to copy directly from other sources, as this will reflect poorly on our site and can also affect how Google rates us. Of course, if you are using direct quotes, they will be copied exactly and cited with Author and Title.
2. When adding pictures and videos, ensure that you are not infringing on anyone's copyright. One of the ways to ensure this is: when you save a photo to your computer, right click on the photo...if an option to save the picture is given, then you are probably not infringing anyone's copyright. If you don't get that option when you right click on your mouse, then it is most likely that there is a copyright to that image. If taking a video off youtube or another site REMEMBER to say what site you got it off and the user who uploaded it.
3. When adding videos to the site, please try to give credit to the person who made it. It is their work after all, and we are sure they would appreciate the credit.
4. This site is not to advertise anyone's personal interests...we certainly welcome links to sites that relate to this one, but using this site to advertise sales may result in revoking a membership.


DISCUSSION FORUM KNOW-HOW,
INTERACTIONS & RULES:

All you Need to Know About Threads!
RULES
Etiquette, Language
When joining the DISCUSSION FORUM (any thread which are situated under pages and in the forum - which is situated on the top menu above), we would ask that you keep a few things in mind.

1. Keep to the topic of the discussion of the thread you have joined in on.
2. Avoid numerous threads about the same topic. You can add your thoughts to an already existing thread, where possible.
3. Debate the subject, the actors, or the characters, but please, at all costs avoid arguments. These types of confrontations can intimidate newer members from contributing. Opinions are always welcome, but arguments are not.
4. Do not make personal attacks on other members for their opinions. Everybody is entitled to an opinion (i.e not everybody on this wiki thinks that Francois Arnaud [aka Cesare on the show] is gods gift to women, even though you may think so)
. The wiki is meant to be fun, and nobody appreciates being ridiculed for any reason.
5. Try to read all the entries on a thread, you may be asking a question already asked and answered in previous entries.
6. Keep your language CLEAN, please! This site may be visited by children, or your parents, and we don't want to set a bad example. Any word that may be said after 8:00pm on television at night may not be said here unless its a quote from the show.
