Help

1st of all: Thx for sharing your Knowledge about Sands of the Coliseum. In this section you can find some general guidelines for editing and structuring content.

General

  • This is a wiki.
  • Everything can be edited.
  • All history of edits is saved.
  • Nothing (almost) is lost.
  • To try editing go to sandbox (if you feel the need).
  • You can start editing content anyway.

Structure

Most of the Pages have categorys (like "gear:" or "landing:" prepended to the actual page-name. This is done on purpose to be able to assign different editing rights to different user-groups once we go public.

Categories

  • gear is for shop-items
  • glad:
    • Is the category for different glad-types
    • If you want to add a new build, please use the form-field in the sidebar: There you only have to enter the actual name (without "glad:" in front). Glad-pages created that way will automatically have the landing-page glad as a parent.
  • landing:
    • Pages that explain a general concept (like "skill" or "glad".
    • If you want to add a new landing, please use the form-field in the sidebar: There you only have to enter the actual name (without "landing:" in front). Landing-pages created that way will automatically have the start-page as a parent.
  • skill:
    • All skills are at least already linked.
    • Use wanted pages to create them.
  • stat:
    • Most stats are at least already linked.
    • Use wanted pages to create them.
  • team:
    • with the form-field in the sidebar you can create descriptions of various teams.
    • you don't have to add the category "team:" that way.
    • The parent-page will be team.

Parent-child-pages

  • all content-pages should have a parent.
  • This is useful to maintain a hierarchical structure so that no page gets "orphaned"
  • in pages without parents you can see pages, that are not connected to any other page within that parent-child hierarchy.
  • When you find a page without parent you can assign one:
    • Bottom of page "+options"
    • select "parent"
    • enter desired parent page
    • "save"

Editing

Images

Gear

In case you have an Image of an item just attach the image-file (preferrably .png) to the corresponding landing page:

If you want to post that Image to another page, copy the full URL of that image and insetr it like that [[image http://coliseum.wikidot.com/local--files/landing:.../some_nice_item.png]].

Other Images

Just attach the Image to the page it fits best and insert it like that: [[image some_nice_image.png]].

Collaborating

Typos

  • just correct them
  • If you are extra nice: tick the checkbox "minor edit"

Structure

  • Structural changes like renaming pages will be specified automatically.
  • Please check wanted pages after remaming pages so that the old name is not linked from anywere anymore.

Disagreements

  • If you think that a major part of an explanation/information is wrong, please use the "discuss" option at the bottom of the page (that contains the "error") to specify, what you think is wrong before changing it straight away.

THIS IS WIKI !!!

  • As mentioned before: everything is saved, and everything can be changed.
  • Changes happen because someone is of the honest opinion, that it should be changed.
  • don't be offended.
  • If someone keeps on trolling, send a message to ookeek.
