If you have a little time to spare: the wiki is plagued with errors, and any assistance would be much appreciated in this especially. Here is a quick list of common errors on the wiki:
|Sacred Artist (capitalisation)||sacred artist|
|Path of Blackflame||Path of Black Flame|
|Iron Body||Iron body|
Here are some more things you can do:
- Building up: Check out the Stubs; articles that have not received substantial attention from other editors and do not have a sufficient amount of information and/or references can be a great place to start.
- Expand and Improve: Many articles can be expanded and improved upon. You could roam the wiki looking for topics you are familiar with that are too vague, missing information, or need re-wording of sentences and paragraphs so that they are more understandable. If you notice information that is missing from an article, add it.
If you want to discuss anything specific to an article, you can use the Discussion page for that article.
A mind map showing the wiki's organization can be found below, the color legend should be up to date, contact u/Madraast on the wiki and Reddit or @Phat Delicious Butternut Squash on the discord with any errors you find or suggested edits. You can also make edits yourself if you make an account.
Style Guides and Editing Help
Style Guide for "Books" pages
Book pages should have at least three sections.
From the back cover: Word for word the back cover blurb. Left justified, in italics. This needs an attribution, as it is a quote.
Summary: A summary of the book. This should include any major plot points of the book. It is tempting to include everything, but try to keep it to major plot points or things that will be significant for future books. Use sub-heading 2 format for any subheadings you may need. This should be left aligned, with a single line between paragraphs. Do not indent the first line. Short quotes should be left in the text. Longer quotes should use block quote formatting.
Characters: Include any major or secondary characters, as well as any characters that may be significant in past or future books. Focus on new information about that character from the book being discussed. Add the Character template info box to provide a summary of basic information.
Other categories: Include other categories if needed, including items, locations or Paths. Focus on information that was new that book, and that is significant. Remember there will be other areas that focus on these categories, so use these if it is needed for understanding the book.
General notes: If more detailed information is available elsewhere, link to it the first time it is mentioned. Subsequent mentions do not need to be linked. Spoilers are to be expected, but use your judgement for significant spoilers. All series related pages should start with their relevant navbox, e.g. (Cradle navbox on Cradle pages, EE navbox on EE pages)
The following page contains examples of templates to be used on various pages to help with organization and style. test page
To keep things looking uniform, please use the Quote Template when adding quotes to pages. In source editor, it will look like this:
| quote: this is where the quote text goes | speaker: John Smith | source: Welcome
this will result in quote text like this:
"this is where the quote text goes" ― John Smith[source]
If you have a multiple line quote, separate the lines with a line break: like this <br />, this will allow the italic formatting to hold for the entire paragraph of the quote, instead of only the first line.
for example. a quote like this:
"first line of text
second line of text
third line of text" ― John Smith[source]
This would look like this:
| quote: first line of text <br /> <br />second line of text <br /> <br />third line of text | speaker: John Smith | source: Welcome
