2b2t Wiki:How to edit/Article Structure

  Welcome!   Main Rules   Article Creation   3 Editing Steps   Text Formatting   Article Structure   Discussions   The end!  

Introduction

The article begins with an introduction, where the content of the article is described in a few sentences. The first word of the introduction should be 'uppercase' , followed by a comma. The sentences should be brief. Avoid unnecessary pronouns and duplication.

Article text

The text of the article should be written in encyclopedic style. Defining a word alone is not enough to have an article. This article should contain at least some relevant information. At the same time, long paragraphs should be avoided. Try to divide the article into as many titles and subheadings as possible.

Editor name

Wiki Logo

The name of the creator or editor of the article is not mentioned in the article. However, if you wish, you can see the author (s) of the edit. just click on the "View History" link at the top of the page (next to the "Edit" link).

Pictures

The image on the right was obtained with the help of the following code:

[[File:2b wiki logo.png .png|thumb|Wiki Logo]]

As you can see, the formula has several components. Scaledlogo.png code is the name of the file used. And the word "thumb" means that the picture should appear in the frame.

Sources and References

In case of important information (for example, date), its source should be indicated. We do this through references, for which we again refer to the help of wiki code. For example in the editing window adding:

Group was owned on 2015<ref>Source</ref> It was owned by MrExample<ref>Source2</ref>

Turns out

Group was owned on 2015[1] It was owned by MrExample[2]
  1. Source
  2. Source2
  3. External links

    Links to other sites can be placed at the end of the article. In that case, we're using a formula. For example:

    * [http://2b2t.miraheze.org source2]

    External links should only be placed if they contain relevant information about the content of the article. They are not always desirable, and excessive external links are largely unacceptable.

    Categories

    Articles fall into one or more categories. Category wikis are placed at the end of the article, before cross-language references. For example, in the article about Vortex Coalition, the category "Groups" can be added. We will do it in the following way.

    [[Category:Groups]]

    Year

    The category denotes the year an article took place in. For players, it is when they joined. For bases and groups, it is the year of foundation. For events, it is the year in which it took place. For exploits, it is the year they were widely used on the server. This tag MUST be placed on all pages unless they are on in-game items, machines, or anything else otherwise existing outside of the chronology of the server.

    Players

    All pages about players are to recieve the [[Category:Players]] category. Beyond this, there are many other categories that can be found by going to the players category. As many tags can be added as are applicable to the subject of the article.

    Bases

    All pages about bases are to receive the [[Category:Bases]] category. Beyond this, there are many other categories that can be found by going to the bases category. As many tags can be added as are applicable to the subject of the article.

    Groups

    All pages about groups are to receive the [[Category:Groups]] category. Beyond this, there are many other categories that can be found by going to the groups category. As many tags can be added as are applicable to the subject of the article.

    Events

    All pages about events are to receive the [[Category:Events]] category. Beyond this, there are many other categories that can be found by going to the events category. As many tags can be added as are applicable to the subject of the article.

    Exploits

    All pages about exploits are to receive the [[Category:Events]] category. Beyond this, there are many other categories that can be found by going to the exploits category. As many tags can be added as are applicable to the subject of the article.

    Wiki information

    All pages pertaining to things that have happened on the wiki, the rules, staff functionality/voting procedure, or the Manual of style are to receive the [[Category:Wiki information]] category. Pages making up the style guide are also to receive the Manual of style category.

    Miscellaneous

    All pages not covered under the above categories are to receive the [[Category:Miscellaneous]] category. Oftentimes there will be no further categories available for contents falling into this classification, but for some types of pages there are further subcategories.

    Templates

    So-called templates and information cards are often used in Wiki. Templates are wiki resolutions (sometimes very long) that are on a separate page and are used in hundreds of articles. This saves a lot of time and space. Templates are always in double brackets. For example, the {{idea}} template adds the following:
