Spacers Handbook Editing Guidelines
Welcome, and thank you for wanting to be a part of this awesome project! I will be adding more details here later, but here are the basics to get you started.
Page Naming Standards
The page for a character should be the first and last name if known.
Ship names should be the full name of the ship.
A page dedicated to year should start with the word Year, such as Year 2351. We should not use anything more specific than a year (as in a page just for a single day) unless there is a really good reason to justify it.
Technical How To
To create a link to a page, put the title of the page inside of two square brackets. Then after you save you will see that text turned into a link. Like this:
To make a link say something other than the full name of the page, use the Pipe symbol ( | ) after the page name.
[[Ishmael Wang | Ish]]
The above syntax will create a link to the page named Ishmael Wang but the link name will be Ish. Like this: Ish
To make a note, use the ref tags.
<ref>This is a footnote</ref>
Please make sure every page has a category assigned to it. Use the categories from our document on the FaceBook group. If a page doesn't fit into one of the categories we established, then use Category:Other and we will address it later.
To make a link to a category without adding the current page to the category, start the link name with a colon.
