General Chatter

Hi there! It is very nice to see you here! :) -- Muzzafar 04:22, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

(Did some cleanup on old messages).


Proposed Style Guide For TBFGK Pages

This is the style I've developed for my entries, offered as a proposed style guide:

Basic Category Tags

Suggested standard tags for all pages and frames (the former for all, the ones with "TBFGK" specific to Book 1):

[[Category:Page Annotation]]
[[Category:Page Annotation/TBFGK]]

[[Category:Frame Annotation]]
[[Category:Frame Annotation/TBFGK]]

Linkback for Text/Description Pages

Each Text and Description subpage should have a pointer back to the frame page -- include the following as the first line of the page:

<noinclude>{{subpage}}</noinclude>

Wiki Link Words

Generally, significant terms and character names should be linked to their wiki pages at their first appearance in each Text or Description section. (Exception: For Text pages, the speaker headings get linked even if it's not the first occurence of the name and even if the same speaker name shows up more than once.)

Character Names & Speaker Headings

Common character names with canonical (i.e. direct links without redirection) links to their wiki pages. Low priority, but in general it's best practice to minimize the need to resort to redirects:

[[Stanley the Tool|Stanley]]
[[Wanda Firebaugh|Wanda]]
[[Parson Gotti|Parson]]
[[Sizemore Rockwell|Sizemore]]
[[Jack Snipe|Jack]]
[[Prince Ansom|Ansom]]
[[Vinny Doombats|Vinny]]
[[Jillian Zamussels|Jillian]]
[[Sir Webinar|Webinar]]

Speaker Headings for some major characters (each with Name: in bold and canonically linked):

'''[[Stanley the Tool|Stanley]]:''' 
'''([[Eyebook]]) [[Stanley the Tool|OverLord1]]:''' 
'''[[Wanda Firebaugh|Wanda]]:''' 
'''([[Eyebook]]) [[Wanda Firebaugh|Wanda]]:''' 
'''[[Parson Gotti|Parson]]:''' 
'''([[Eyebook]]) [[Parson Gotti|LordHamster]]:''' 
'''[[Sizemore Rockwell|Sizemore]]:''' 
'''([[Eyebook]]) [[Sizemore Rockwell|ImInUrDirtz]]:''' 
'''[[Prince Ansom|Ansom]]:''' 
'''[[Vinny Doombats|Vinny]]:''' 
'''[[Jillian Zamussels|Jillian]]:''' 
'''[[Sir Webinar|Webinar]]:''' 
'''([[Eyebook]]) [[Charlie|CharlsNChrg]]:''' 

Proposed Reference Style

For Talk/Description Pages

Enter the following footnote pointer into the text where appropriate, using an easily remembered name that will correspond to the name of the linked footnote.

{{ref|NameOfRef}}

Don't bother entering the footnotes into the Text/Description page itself. These pages are designed as data entry points, not final pages for reading; adding copies of footnotes here is a complication for little benefit.

For Panel-View Pages

Enter footnotes as follows:

----
=====Notes=====
#{{note|NameOfRef}}Text of footnote.

For Page-View Pages

Enter footnotes as follows:

----
===Notes===
#{{note|NameOfRef}}Text of footnote.

Examples

The current TBFGK 133:6/Description page reads:

<noinclude>{{subpage}}</noinclude>
The [[Wiener-Rammer|wiener-rammer]] rears up and bares its teeth as the [[FoxMUD]] trooper
{{ref|ZiggyStardust}} pulls the reins with one hand and brandishes a sword with the other.
In the foreground, [[Parson Gotti|Parson]] raises his own sword. [[Maggie]] stands behind
him, her hands glowing with violet-tinged energy as she prepares a [[spell]].

The current TBFGK 133:6/Text page reads:

<noinclude>{{subpage}}</noinclude>
'''[[FoxMUD]] Trooper:''' Target the [[Warlord]]!

'''[[Parson Gotti|Parson]]:''' Oh, man. Learn by doing...

'''[[Maggie]]:''' Hoboken.{{ref|Hadoken}}

The current TBFGK 133:6 page (frame view of Page 133, Panel 6) reads:

{{paneler|133|6|TBFGK|470|274|695|506|132|134|12}}
