D Spades Lens Reading

The Article Outline is the guide to structuring articles on Reborn Wiki. This will cover different types of articles, and the usage of headers, formatting, templates and standard page layouts.

Introduction Edit

The opening sections contain a few tags and some brief beginnings to a page. Note, that a lot of tags and details will end up appearing throughout the article, but become immediately relevant prior to the main article body.

  1. An mbox may be included at the very top of an article. An example of these would be {{spoiler}}. This is to indicate a problem with the article, or to alert other users of its status.
  2. Infoboxes are used to portray a summary of facts, vital information on a subject, or information which lacks a better place in the article. Facts that are not found within the series should only be included if they can be sourced. The main image can be a character model render, a screenshot, a photo or logo, or an artwork, and should be the one representing the subject best. Infoboxes are not required on all articles, but if an infobox is added, then it will go straight below mboxes such as {{stub}}. Infoboxes must be created with a specific purpose in mind, and will use an infobox template such as {{infobox character}} or {{infobox organization}}. Any links contained in infoboxes can be repeated throughout the article.
  3. Articles should begin with bold text of the name, as seen at the beginning of this page. The rest of the introduction should give a brief outline on the subject, and can be only a few sentences or two/three paragraphs.

Body Edit

The body of an article is its main content. This will differ greatly based on the type of articles. Headers should be used to detail the content below the introduction.

Closing content Edit

Closing content is contained below the main body of an article.

  • Image galleries section should also be created when a number of images in a section clutter the layout. Images should also be used with a caption to describe each of the images it contains.
  • A Trivia section will contain bullet-point lists of interesting facts about the subject. This could contain popular references or fun facts that do not fit within the article. Trivia may only contain notable information, although the notability can be dealt with on case-by-case basis.
  • External links sections should link to relevant pages on important fansites, Wikipedia, or the Google Play/App Store respective links.
  • References should only contain the <references /> tag. If any information needed to be sourced, this is always included as the very last thing.
  • The final content on a page, {{navbox}} templates are used. Any specific feature strongly relevant to the article will be included.
  • Categories and interwiki links are the final things added to a page, but do not make up its content.

Specific layouts Edit

The layouts of specific pages vary on the type of page. This will include specific information on the body of the articles.

If applicable, character pages should begin with a meaningful quote by the character. All character articles follow the same format general format. The {{infobox character}} should be used.

    • Appearance - Information on the character's general appearance
    • History - Historical and background information on the character.
