Firstly, thank you for contributing to this Wiki. Below you will find the details on the preferring formatting and style to use when contributing.
Capitalization and Localization[edit | edit source]
If an entity (resource, character, building, etc.) is capitalized in game, it should be capitalized in the Wiki.
Localization should be written using EN-US.
Narrative[edit | edit source]
- Articles should be written in third person perspective (the player), and not second (you, me, us) or first (I, me).
- Using contractions when possible is preferred for readability.
- Phrase sentences to prefer present tense where possible
- e.g. "When built, Granaries store Grain" instead of "Building a granary will enable the storage of Grain"
Articles[edit | edit source]
Do not put a header before your overview or lead section.
Any image provided in an Infobox should generally be a version with an alpha layer as transparent.
Resource Icons[edit | edit source]
When resource icons are needed, the Icon template should be used.
More information and syntax can be found at Template:Icon
Headers[edit | edit source]
Add a blank line before and after section headers.
Headers should be written with leading and trailing spaces. Example: == Header == for easy readability.
Building Articles[edit | edit source]
Articles related to buildings should include several headers by default along with an Infobox (Template:InfoboxBuilding).
- Upgrade Information
- Basic Strategy
- Gameplay Updates
Gameplay Updates section is reserved for any updates related to a building entity that has had features and functionality patched by Crate Entertainment.
