Power Master Wiki:Editing Help

From Power Master Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

This page is meant to help editors with certain tasks and page building.

Formatting

  • ''Italics'': Names of games and publications should be italicized to make it clear that what the reader is reading is the name of a game/book. This is done by placing apostrophes on both sides of a title. For example, ''[[Power Master 1: A Strange Journey]]'' will become Power Master 1: A Strange Journey. Fictional names created in the games themselves but aren't actually names of created games are instead placed in quotation marks.
  • '''Bolding''': The first instance of a subject in an article should be bolded. If a character's full name is not used at the beginning of an article, but is used in the Biography section, the full name there is also bolded. Bolding is done by placing three apostrophes on both sides of a subject. For example, '''[[Stephan]]''' will become Stephan. Bolding can also be done by linking to the article being edited, but this is discouraged. Placing five apostrophes around a subject will both italicize and bold it.
  • [[Linking]]: The standard way to move from page to page. Placing two square brackets on both sides of a subject, left side brackets being opening and right side being closing, will create a link. For example, [[link]]. If the link leads to a created page, it will turn blue. If the page does not exist, the link will be red and is asking to be created. A link should be used for the first instance of a subject on a page or section.
  • Spelling: As an English wiki, this wiki uses English spelling. "Color" instead of "colour", "armor" instead of "armour", etc. unless specified otherwise.
  • Contractions: Contractions such as didn't, isn't, won't, etc. are discouraged as they are not professional in writing. Use did not, is not, will not, etc. instead.
  • Game names: Abbreviating game names are fine, so long as the full title is mentioned at the start of its article and when linking to its page. Categories also use game abbreviations to make categorization quicker.
  • Images: Files should have a name that is clear. A "game-subject-type" style is recommended, such as "File:PM1 Stephan Enemy Sprite.png", but as long as the name is clear, it does not matter what is used in what order. If the name is too general, such as "File:Stephan.png", it should be renamed so it can accurately describe what the file is. Names should not be a string of numbers or letters. Extensions should be lowercase, such as "png", and "jpeg" should be "jpg"; a limitation of the MediaWiki software is that it cannot read "PNG" as "png" or "jpeg" as "jpg", so consistency is helpful.
    • Good quality is also required, as best as possible. Do not turn a jpg in a png just to remove the background, as that bloats the filesize and tends to leave artifacts, not to mention it ruins the authenticity of the image. Images should also not be bloated or upscaled, they should be uploaded at the size they are available in. If you are not able to provide the best quality possible, tag the image with {{quality}} and someone else may be able to.
