Wiki Rules and Standards

Do's and Don't's

Standardized wiki page format

Page Title

InfoBoxes should be used to call attention to facts and statistics that would be of most interest to users so they can quickly and easily see it. This is currently a float, but it will be replaced with an infobox once we have that functionality.
- Introductory Paragraph
Give basic information about the subject of the page, please include links to other wiki articles that are mentioned. The first time you mention the topic, be sure to put it in bold face, this looks better overall. For example; the Wiki Rules and Standards are in place to ensure high quality and consistency among the various wiki articles.

We're working on getting infobox functionality as well, I would want that to replace the Float on the right and will edit it in when we get it.

By infobox do you mean the boxes that are currently being used for each song? If not, I'd love to see those available for editing. Off the top of my head they would be very useful for character pages and neat for userpages too.

that is exactly what the infobox is, we're creating a generic one now so people can create those without having to learn and use HTML, but we may create templates later on down the road.

Though it's obvious, I would reccomend stating somewhere in here that this is still ScoreHero and that all of ScoreHero's usual rules still apply.

I really don't think we need redundant headers...
