Creating a Page[edit | edit source]

Creating a page can be done through the above input box or by searching for a non-existent page using the search bar on the top right.

If the page already exists, you'll be redirected to it instead.

Editing Guidelines[edit | edit source]

  • Use proper grammar and spelling
    • Stick to American English, in order to be consistent with the game.
  • Don't vandalize pages
  • Avoid editorializing -- stick to facts
  • Use Quick Icon Templates when possible, in order to stay consistent with the rest of the wiki.

Style Guidelines[edit | edit source]

  • When indicating an amount of currency in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (icon only) followed by a number:
    • Icon Diamantium.png 40
    • Icon Wyrmite.png 40
    • Icon Resource Mana.png 40
    • Icon Resource Eldwater.png 40
      • Additionally, values presented like this should be left-aligned, in order to align the icons.
  • When indicating an amount of materials in a chart, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon) followed by a number:
  • When referring to a quantity of currency, materials, etc. within a sentence, use the Quick Icon Template (text + icon), with the number preceding it:
    • It will cost you 40 Icon Diamantium.png Diamantium to perform this action.
  • When indicating a number which is one thousand or greater, include the proper comma every third non-decimal digit:
    • 1,000
    • 1,500
    • 10,000
    • 27,500
    • If making a template that pulls from Cargo Tables, the magic word {{formatnum:}} can help parse values, e.g. {{formatnum:123456789.99}} produces 123,456,789.99.

Acceptable Date Formats[edit | edit source]

  • Most templates utilize the magic words {{#time:F d, Y h:i:s A e|}} and {{#time:F d, Y|}} and are thus able to accept a variety of formats which are parsed and stored internally as UTC.
  • The following are accepted: backslashes (2019/1/1), dashes (2019-1-1), most manner of timezones (+9, +9 hours. +0930, JST, GMT +9) and commas in the correct spacing (November 20th, 2019).
  • The following are not accepted and will throw errors: any dots as they cause non integer values, including dot spacing (2019.1.1) and specifying timezones in non integer (+9.5).
  • If no timezone is specified e.g. October 04, 2018 06:00, the syntax automatically assumes UTC.
