DiabloWiki:Policy

From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This is the policies of DiabloWiki that all contributing members are expected to follow. Most of these policies work exactly like other wikis.

Categories[edit]

Make sure any article or category you create fits nicely into the DiabloWiki category structure.


Headlines[edit]

Headlines are used as normal. The main headline look like this: "== Headline ==", and all subheaders add one equal sign on each side to create a headline structure.


Titles[edit]

  • Almost all titles in a wiki adhere to the general principle that all words are written with minor letters, and only use capitals in titles (example: media coverage versus High Heavens). DiabloWiki itself transform the first letter of any title to a capital letter, which is unimportant for the naming. It's the equivalent of the first word of a sentence. This holds true with articles, boilerplates, categories and templates. If in doubt, check with other contributors.
  • Disambiguations (cases where two articles or two categories with the same name mean completely different things) use a space and a parenthesis with a clarification like this: Barbarian (Diablo III class) or this: Category:Locations (lore). The word in the parenthesis is always minor letters.
  • Articles are almost exclusively used in singular ("Barbarian" instead of "Barbarians" etc). If it is at all possible to use singular form, do so.
  • Category titles use a similar logic to articles, where a two-worded category title uses a minor letter for the second word like this: Category:Art books. Categories are almost exclusively used in plural ("Category:Maps" instead of "Category:Map").
