General

These standards shall keep the wiki looking neat and in order. As a general rule of thumb, the following standards should be applied everywhere.

  • Try to keep pages unbiased/neutral. User page's are up to the user, but keep those civil.
  • NSFW content, cursing and general hate/disrespect are not allowed on any pages. Any edits containing the preceding will be reverted, and may earn you a ban. (Only idiots get banned. Don't be an idiot)
  • Do not keep reverting edits or get in edit wars. If you have an issue with another user on this matter, bring it up with an admin. If the user removing your edits IS an admin, you probably shouldn't be undoing them.
  • Trolling is not allowed, and will result in punishment as an admin sees fit.


Editing Pages

  • Avoid linking the same thing more than once on a page.
  • Highlight the term a page is about by marking it as bold in the first paragraph.
  • If you don't understand where or how to start editing a page (or creating a new one), you should probably look at how other pages are structured.
  • Make sure to use the appropiate templates and formatting, depending on the gamemode the page is going to be about.


Page Titles

  • Only first word capitalized unless proper noun.
  • No pluralization in article titles unless using the singular form wouldn't make sense. Category pages should be pluralized however, because they are lists of multiple items in a group.


Images

  • Item images should be exactly 150x150px or 32x32px and in .png format.
  • Images intended to replace another should be uploaded as a new version of the file as opposed to a new file. An exception to this would be the old image of a MineZ Location that just got rebuilt. The old screenshot should probably be moved to the Gallery section of that page, for example.


Categories

  • All pages should be part of at least one descriptive category.
  • To add a page to a category, simply add the text, "[[Category:Name]]" to the bottom of the article, replacing "Name" with the name of the desired category.
  • A list of all existing categories can be found at Special:Categories.
  • If you feel like improving site categorization, you can find a list of all uncategorized pages at Special:UncategorizedPages.
  • If an article has no suitable existing category, post a message on its talk page with any name suggestions you might have. Only create a category if you know exactly what a perfect title would be.
  • A category name can be disputed at any time on the category's talk page. For example if you don't think the name is suitable, you can start a discussion on Category_talk:Help.


Pages Needing Work

Depending on how thorough you have been, a page may still be missing some information. Alert other users to what is missing by putting the following at the top of the page.

{{needsinfo|comment= Your comment(s) here}}

Leave a comment so future editors know what needs to be added/fixed and so they know when to remove the template. Any page using this template will also be automatically added to :Category:Needs Information.


Example Pages

Here's a small list of example pages you can quickly copy-paste so you can create a page on a gamemode:

  • Anni Classes - Simple Anni Class page format.
    • Anni Maps - For Annihilation map pages, of course.
  • MineZ Locations - It has all the templates needed for a Location page. Some headers might have to be deleted depending on the page.
  • SMASH Map - The template and headers needed for a SMASH Map page.
  • Slaughter Map - Slaughter Map format. Self-explanatory.
