Editing Guidelines

From LeikaRO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following are various guidelines users should follow when creating or updating content on the wiki.

General Guidelines

  • Keep writing professional. Do not use slang, profanity, vulgarity, or anything of the sort. Repeated failure to follow this will result in a block of your wiki account.
  • Make sure to proofread and edit your work before submitting it. This includes fixing typos and grammatical mistakes. If you need someone to proofread or edit your work, please let me (penciltea) or another user know and we can help you out. Occasional mistakes happen and that's okay but proofreading ahead of time prevents quite a few of them from slipping through.
  • Use templates whenever possible. They're there to make your lives easier when creating content and for maintaining a consistent look and feel across the pages on the wiki. If you want to have a template created, please contact me and I will be more than happy to create them for you.
  • If you want to change a page completely, overhaul the layout of a page or content, etc., please create it on a temporary page until it is 100% complete and then move over the contents of the temporary page to the original page.
  • Please leave comments on changes that you make in the "summary" section, if possible.
  • We use MediaWiki for our wiki. You can check out this guide for information on how to edit the pages on the wiki.

Naming Convention Guidelines

Please make note of the following changes to names for skills, jobs, etc.:

  • The "Rebellion" Job is referred to as Rebel
  • The Rune-Midgarts Kingdom is referred to as the Rune-Midgard Kingdom or Rune-Midgard
  • The "Mage" Job is referred to as Magician (and needs to be updated on the wiki, I know...)
  • Refer to "Classes" as Jobs

Technical Guidelines

  • Wrap class names in double quotes. (ie., class="className")
  • Make sure any formatting is human readable. (ie., use {| class="className" instead of {|class="className")
