Editing an Article

To edit an article, change to the Edit mode. To get there, click the "Edit" button in the top menu line.

If instead you get the link "View source" in the top menu line, the article is protected from editing. Please report this in our Forum.

If you do not feel good about changing an article but want to drop a comment (additions, suggestions, report errors), you can use the "Discussion" page (on the left side of "Edit") to leave a shout.

Article Layout

When creating a new article make sure the layout is perfect and ready for improvements. You can find several Samples for certain types of articles, that only need filling-out, linked on the help pages.

The structure of an article should be as follows:

  • Remark
  • Infobox / Main image
  • Introductory text
  • article content (with text and image elements)
  • Links / References
  • Category links
  • Interwiki links



Text Elements

  • Title of the Article Bold
The title of the article should be included at the beginning of the first sentence and be in bold. The first sentence should also include alternative names (also in bold) and put the item into context.

bold signifies the name of the article (or any alternative names stated in the same article)


  • Links to Other Articles
Links to related articles should be included in the article. Set every keyword (e.g. Tomb Raider Underworld, Lara Croft, Shotgun) as Wiki link:

Again bold for the title of the article. And [[]] for links within the wiki.


  • Italic for Emphasizing a Word
To emphasize a word within a text you should use the italic style. Do not use bold writing as it is exclusively for the article name. An alternative is the usage of "".
