FANDOM


This is a rundown guide to editing here at The New Gate Wiki.

General

1. Whenever possible, use the source editor!
2. Capitalize on the database templates.
  • Before making a new character, faction, bestiary, skill, item, or place entry on the wiki, check if there is a database, if not make one!
  • Efficiency will improve dramatically by having information at a centralized point (i.e. a database).
  • Rather than manually putting in varying information time and time again, using database will decrease the amount time, hassle, and most of clerical errors in tables, infoboxes, charts, and more.
  • Seriously, please, please, please make use of the database templates.
See Template:Dtable/CHAR and Template:DIB/CHAR for working examples.
See also: Category:Data templates.
3. For emote usage, use {{oh}} or {{mp}}.
E.G. {{oh|<sleeping>}} will display..

Oh sleeping

E.G. {{mp|<kitteh>}} will display..

Mp kitteh

To see all usable emotes, refer to Category:Emotes.
4. For novel pages, be sure all content is enclosed within {{np}}.
{{np}} requires 3 fields; {{np|<address after /wiki/>|<unique anchor>|<content>}}
  1. For the VEP to function, the address after /wiki/ must be added to the first field.
  2. For the back to top to function, a unique anchor must be added to the second field.
  3. For the body content to show, you must add your content to the third and final field.
E.G. {{np|<TNG:Editing_Guide>|<anchor>|<Once upon a time...>}} will display..

anchor

Once upon a time...


5. Be sure to give credits using {{cr}}.
{{cr}} contains 2 fields; {{cr|<- or +>|<2>}}
The first field is optional, - or + denotes whether the box is collapsed or not, it is collapsed by default.
The second field requires {{cr/c}}.
E.G. {{cr|<+>}} by itself will display..
Whereas
{{cr||
{{cr/c||Translator|Ben, Joe}}
{{cr/c|Cleaner|Jerry, Frank, Sam}}
{{cr/c|Typesetter|Ariel}}
}} will display..
6. If there are any article that you believe needs more content, add {{Ct/nmc}} at the top of the page.
This will catalog the page to Category:Articles that needs more content, letting others know that the said page requires more content.
7. If there are any article that you believe needs cleaning, add {{Ct/nc}} at the top of the page.
This will catalog the page to Category:Articles that needs cleaning, letting others know that the said page needs cleaning.
