Help:Getting started

From Blade & Soul Wiki

Welcome to the Blade & Soul Wiki! The following help section is created and edited by wiki users, just like the rest of the our wiki pages.

New to editing?[edit source]

  • A wiki is designed to allow every user to edit its content. If you see something you think could be improved upon, improve it! Just click the "edit" tab at the top of a page to edit its contents.
  • Don't be afraid to edit. Part of the wiki system is an integrated version tracking system, so there's never a fear of losing something. If you make a mistake, you or someone else can easily fix it - so take the initiative and make a change if you think it's useful. (Tip: when editing, you can also use the "Preview" button to check how the page will look before you save it!)
  • If you need a basic guide to the formatting syntax used for editing pages, take a look at the help guide.
  • If you want to experiment with wiki code, you can use your own user page, or the wiki's sandbox page.
  • Start editing!

New to everything?[edit source]

  • If you're looking to find information, the best place to start is either browsing from the Main Page, or using the search box at the top of each page. After typing your search criteria, clicking the "pages containing" selection in the drop-down box will bring you to a search results page.
  • If you don't find what you're looking for, remember that the wiki is made up of articles contributed by its users - it might just be that no one has written about that topic yet! Create it!
  • Enjoy the Game!

What we expect[edit source]

Actually, you are quite free. But we want to encourage you to maintain a standard for grammar and punctuation in your contributions! Please write your articles in a way which you'd also expect from other authors.

  • If you are creating a new page and suddenly realize that you cannot expand further than few lines, please add the {{stub}} template to the top of the page. The Stub template marks pages that do not have enough information and can be improved upon.
  • Make sure to categorize the pages you create or come across so that users can easily browse and find what they are looking for.
  • If you find spam, vandalism or if someone is harassing you, please contact one of the administrators.
  • When you are uploading images, make sure that copyright information is in place. You should find everything you need under Category:Copyright templates.
