Posting Guide

This guide is to show users how to format their pages and use the infoboxes that were created. Please follow these steps on how to create and format pages on the wiki.

Quick Tips

Our wiki runs off of MediaWiki. You can see a much bigger guide on posting here. These are just simple ones you might need.

Creating a page

To create a new page, simply search the page on the wiki. Then click "Create the page (pagename) on this wiki!" Clicking this will open a new editor that will create the page.

Add an image

Click the "Embedded File" at the top toolbar. You then can add the filename. The extension is required. The second box is for a caption that will show under the image preview box.

Formatting text

You can use the toolbar on the editor to change how text looks. Just hover over each option to see what it is.

Uploading Images

When uploading images, please name the file appropriately. If you need to replace an image, please upload over the current image. To do this, find the file page and click "Upload a new version of this file" at the bottom. File pages will have the prefix "File:" in the title.

Players

It's recommended to name the file as the player's username. People can use the player's skin more easily when needed. To get a player skin, you can go onto NameMC and search the player up. Then, just right click the preview box to save the image of the skin. Then you can go to the Upload Page and upload the file.

Bases/Groups/Other Pages

There aren't any naming rules, just make sure that it's named to people can identify it.

Player Pages

If you want to make a player page, do not make a user page! If your page has "User:" in the title, then please delete that page and create a new one with just your name.

Player Infoboxes

[[Category:Players]]
{{Player
|image           = (Put the filename here.)
|joined          = 
|era             = 
|groups          =
|bases           = 
|alts            = 
}}

Use this on all player pages. This shows the nice little box that shows the player's information. This also adds the player to the Player Category.

To find the joined date, do /player <username> in game to get the date. You don't need the time.

Base Infoboxes

[[Category:Bases]]
{{Base
|image           = (Put the filename here.)
|created         = 
|members         = 
|status          = 
}} 

Use this for all base pages. It works just like a player page, but some information is changed. This also adds the player to the Base Category.

Group Infoboxes

[[Category:Groups]]
{{Group
|image           = (Put the filename here.)
|created         = 
|bases           = 
|status          = 
}}

Use this for all base pages. It works just like a player page, but some information is changed. This also adds the player to the Group Category.
