Guidelines for editing wiki

Main Indication

  • Important! If you want to add internal link to an article or articles from which are higher than /en/games, /en/developers, /en/gamedev, /en/themes and other similar, it's necessary to add a prefix to the link in the form of full path to the article.
    For example:
    [[en:games:returning-the-quantum-cat|Returning of the Quantum cat]]

    For automatic substitution this path you can use link wizard in the toolbar (icon in the form of chain link).
    In other cases, you can add a link to an article by manual, simply specifying the name with the prefix en: or without it,
    example:

    [[en:guidelines|Guidelines for editing wiki]] or [[guidelines|Guidelines for editing wiki]]
  • Use headings of different levels, observe the nesting (buttons from the toolbar of wiki-editor will help you in this).
  • Break up the text into paragraphs and sections.
  • Highlight important parts of the text in bold.
  • Do not write simple paragraphs with a new line: use the lists!
  • Create the tables if necessary.
  • Use syntax highlighting for blocks of code: <code lua> ...some lua code... </code>
  • If you are trying to post the code of a whole file, use the tags: <file lua filename.lua> ...some code... </file>.
  • If the page does not require table of contents, turn it off by inserting into the document ~~NOTOC~~ tag.

Creating and Editing

  • Try to write readable wiki markup: do not dump all the tags and other special characters in the bunch.
  • Do not write too long lines. A line break does not hurt markup.
  • Try to write a summary of changes!
    It's much easier to see the three words that describe what was done to compare the current version to the previous page.

Discussion

  • Append your replica always at the end of the page.
  • For the first add signature (the last button in the toolbar) and then your reply with a new line.
  • Respect yourself and others, write competently.

Media

  • A picture paints a thousand words. :-) Go ahead add images to articles.
  • If the image is too large, then put a smaller copy of it in article.
  • Use alignment of images: that achieved through the some spaces:
    {{:en:cat-game2.png?200 |By Left side}}
    {{ :en:cat-game2.png?200|By Right side}}
    {{ :en:cat-game2.png?200 |In the Center}}
