Welcome to the Community Policy page of the wiki! This page will outline some simple rules to follow that will make your experience here as good as possible!

Editing rules

Below are some editing rules for the wiki. These ensure all pages are consistent and the wiki is clean.

  • Canon-content only, you should only add official information from WWO. Most user-created content (i.e. opinions on roles, suggestions) should not be added.
    • Strategies should have the {{PlayerContent}} tag at the start of the page
  • Linking and references should be added where they are needed. Links can be added via the "add link" button or via this syntax on the source editor [text|link]
  • Use formal language, keep your language professional. This means no slang or bad grammar/punctuation.
  • Don't create duplicates. This means that is your page already exists on the wiki, it'll likely be deleted. For example, if you want to create a page called "Werewolf," you cannot create it because there is already an article on "Werewolf." Feel free to add on to/edit the existing article if needed.
  • Use third person, never refer to yourself or use words such as "I", "we" or "you". Instead refer to "the player" or "players".

Offences

The following list is of stuff we would like you not to do. It can hurt other users and damage the wiki. If you spot one of those, contact an admin

  • Being mean, saying rude words/phrases, discriminating against another user for any reason or attacking them verbally is against the community policy.
  • Edit abuse
    • Making edits out of spite against established guidelines is against our policy.
    • Constantly making contrasting edits to another user's work during an editing disagreement is also forbidden.
    • You are only allowed to edit your own profile. Editing other people's profiles will result in a block from the wiki.

Structuring pages

In general, role pages should be structured in the following way:

  • A role description which highlights its abilities and actions
  • Win conditions of the role
  • Trivia about the role which doesn't fit into the description section
  • Heading for each paragraph
  • An infobox with its aura, gamemode(s) and/or team
  • Categories
  • References


Some specifics

  • Don't add abbreviations on the role's main page; we have a separate one for that!
  • Properly name your pictures - Make sure you name your images before uploading them. Here are some rules:
    • Leave spaces between words and numbers. Example: Avatar1 - incorrect. Avatar 1 - correct.
    • Make sure it describes the picture as best as it can. If you are having trouble creating names, try asking admins on their opinion.
    • Don't create long names. Choose Gift.png will always be better then What gift do u want to send.png.
  • When creating a page, be sure to check whether or not info already exists on the topic the page is about
