Welcome to the Puyo Nexus Wiki. It's great that you want to help improve the wiki as much as possible. This guide should help you with how to properly format articles on the wiki.

Before continuing, be sure to read our policies.

How to use the wiki

If you have never used a wiki before, the best way to learn is to read the MediaWiki Handbook over at MediaWiki. This will give you an extensive guide on how to properly use a wiki, ranging from reading to editing articles. If you still need more help, feel free to go on IRC and ask someone over there for help.

Create a page

To create a new page, first search for it using the search box. If no page exists for that name, then click the link in "Create the page "(article name)" on this wiki!"

Edit a page

To edit a page, click the "Edit" button found on the top of the page. After you put in your changes, you should type in a description of the changes that you have done (optional), and then either click "Save page" in order to save the changes, or "Show preview" to see what your changes will look like.

In order to edit pages, you must be logged in. If you are not authorized to edit a page, the link will show "View source" instead.

Formatting

Before editing any pages on the wiki or creating any pages on the wiki, please read the following guides:

  • Terminology - This guide will help you with using the proper terms on the wiki.
  • Formatting articles - This guide will help you with how to properly format articles.

Formatting text

  • Italicized text (''Italicized text'') is created by surrounding text by 2 apostrophes.
  • Bold text ('''Bold text''') is created by surrounding text by 3 apostrophes.
  • Bold and italicized text ('''''Bold and italicized text''''') is created by surrounding text by 5 apostrophes.

Links

Links to other articles within this wiki are done by surrounding the link by 2 square brackets.

Links to articles within a namespace are done by adding the namespace to the link.

  • [[Special:RecentChanges]] will appear like this: Special:RecentChanges.
  • Adding a pipe to the end of the link ([[Special:RecentChanges|]]) will remove the namespace from appearing within the link. It

will cause the link to appear like this: RecentChanges.

  • Links to articles on Wikipedia can be done by using the wikipedia namespace. [[wikipedia:Puyo Puyo]] will appear like this:

wikipedia:Puyo Puyo.

  • Links to the Category namespace must be done by adding a : before category, like this: [[:Category:Rules]].

Links to other websites are done by using surrounding the link by none or one square set of brackets.

  • http://www.puyonexus.net will appear like this: http://www.puyonexus.net.
  • [http://www.puyonexus.net] will appear like this: [1].
  • [http://www.puyonexus.net Puyo Nexus] will appear like this: Puyo Nexus.

Only links listed within the spam whitelist can be linked to. Any other links will be considered as spam and rejected. If you are trying to add a legitimate link that is not found on the spam whitelist, you can go on the chat to ask an admin to add it.

Categories

In order to add an article to a category, all you need to do is link to the category as if you were linking to another page within the wiki.

  • [[Category:Help]] would add this page to the Help category.
