FANDOM


These rules are a good guidline of what should be expected.

Fanon recognition

If you create a page, you should add the "Fanon" template to the top of the page with your username at the back. This is typed as

{{Fanon|NgoRocktoro}}

Which would make this:


This article has been made by NgoRocktoro. Please do not edit anything without the user's permission.

Note: When you add this template to a page, it automatically adds that page to your own category. (E.G; NgoRocktoro.) This is done so that your own pages are easier to find, and are more easily categorized.

Unfinished works

If the article or page isn't complete when it is created, please add the "Inprogress" template beside the "Fanon" template. This will let people know that you haven't finished with your page and it will add your page to the "In Progress" category automatically.

{{Inprogress}}

Will make this:

Mining Armor This article is undergoing updates and will change regularly.

Finished works

Once an article/idea is complete, usage of the {{Finished}} template is recommended (Somewhere near the top of the page.) It will automatically add the page to the Finished Category, and will notify users that the idea is complete, and not subject to change often.

{{Finished}}

Will produce this:

This page has been finished and it is unlikely that it will undergo any major changes.

Plagiarism

If an article or part of an article has been legally been obtained from another site, the {{Plagiarism}} template should be used on the page.

{{Plagiarism}},

Will produce this:

Mimic This article and/or its contents have appeared on another site. They are not stolen or copied, they have permission to be used here, or are different to the content here. If you have evidence to prove otherwise, please post below in the comments section to prove this fact.

Alternatively, should the person want to specify which site the information has been taken from, the {{Plagiarism-Link}} should be used instead.

{{Plagiarism-Link|http://terraria.wikia.com/wiki/Terraria_Wiki}}

Will produce this:

Mimic This article and/or its contents have appeared on this site. They are not stolen or copied, they have permission to be used here, or are different to the content here. If you have evidence to prove otherwise, please post below in the comments section to prove this fact.

Section headings

Every page should be divided into sections, created by using headings. For example, a story would be divided into chapters while a post on a new NPC might be divided into quotes, services, etc.

Editing

Please refrain from editing other people's pages. All pages should be marked with the Fanon template (see above) which should explain who the author is. All unauthorised edits will be reverted and a warning will be given. In extreme cases of vandalism, the user will be blocked.

All comments, queries and helpful tips on pages should go to the author's page, who is clearly stated in the Fanon template.

Pages or comments with repeated cases of extreme language will be deleted, and in extreme cases, the user will be blocked. (Words like hell are tolerated if it refers to a place, for example to The Underworld) Edits should also be kept to a minimum and users are encouraged to preivew their edits before publishing the page.

Write all your pages in proper English. Pages written in other languages will not be tolerated and be deleted.

Co-op page making

Administrators must be notified via their Message Walls if two or more users want to work on the same article. This helps to prevent misunderstandings amongst users.


Categorizing

After creating your own fanon page, please categorize your pages.

Sample categories include

  • Stories
  • Ideas
  • Comic

Feel free to add more to your own page should you feel like your page doesn't belong in these categories.

Images

Please include only pictures that are relevant to the wiki or the story posted. Pictures should also not contain nude scenes, whether mild or extreme.

Administrators

Unsure of anything? Want to help but afraid to break one of the rules? Don't hesitate to ask one of the adminstrators any questions you might have on editing. A list of administrators are available on the Main Page.
