Guidelines for wiki editors

Requirements

When editing pages just keep the following rules in mind.

General

Minor edits

Important: Multiple edits made by the same editor within half an hour of each other no longer count as just one edit in Recent Changes. The half hour is now reduced to one minute.

Understandable writing

Editing and commenting

Wiki markup guidelines

Creating new pages

Step by step guide:
  1. Think of the purpose of this site. Does your planned page serve the audience of the site?
  2. Think of a name for your page. The name should contain the essence of the page’s topic. For example, a page for TASVideos site history would be Site History.
    • Don't use characters beyond A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and '/'.
    • The name should be as short as possible (for easy remembering and easy linking). Do not use acronyms (see above).
    • If there is danger of confusion (there are multiple different games by the same name, but you are writing only about one of them, for example), add more words to the name.
  3. Edit an existing page and add a link to that new page. The Text formatting rules explains how to create links. This step is to avoid it becoming a Wiki orphan.
  4. Then click the newly created link, which will take you to the page you wanted to create.
    • Game Resources are organized as subpages and linked automatically on their parents. To create such a subpage, just enter the desired URL into the address bar and edit the page. For example for NES Super Mario Bros your URL will be https://tasvideos.org/GameResources/NES/SuperMarioBros.
  5. Click the Edit link on that page.
