Trevor Henderson Wiki

People see this as strict reading order, it's not. Paraphrasing Dark, "They're more like guidelines than actual rules".

Now when you are making a page for this wiki the most important thing about it is how it should be structured so this is a guide of the general layout you should use.

Article header

At the very top, you should put in the Cryptid infobox and fill it up with information like this one.

At the next part, you should put a Quote from the cryptid, or the caption of one of the cryptid's images using the "Quote" template.

Like this, for example

Under the quote, you can put a short summary of the creature's characteristics.

After that, you should write your text for the article header explaining who the cyptid is and where they come from.

Characteristics

In the part below is where you put the cryptid's characteristics under headers or sub-headers. The examples below aren't exactly necessary, you can add whatever you like, but these are the generally accepted and useful ones. "Abilities" should preferably be a sub-header.

Appearance

Behavior

Abilities

Trivia

Self-explanatory; something that should be noted is that you should only add things in the trivia that relate to their status as cryptids or about Trevor's posts or images about the cryptid.

References

Self-explanatory; if needed, is usually titled "Notes" or "References", and is placed at or near the bottom of the article.

Usage

There are no set rules when it comes to formatting a reference and each wiki can create their own standard formatting. Formatting can vary greatly between wikis and can be anything: A link to another website that contains the source, a direct quotation, or a block of text.

How to create the list of citations

With some exceptions discussed below, citations appear in a single section containing only the <references /> tag or the {{Reflist}} template. The footnotes will then automatically be listed under that section heading. Each numbered footnote marker in the text is a clickable link to the corresponding footnote, and each footnote contains a caret that links back to the corresponding point in the text.

Code examples

<ref>

Single use footnotes are defined by enclosing content within <ref>...</ref>:

<ref>content</ref>

A footnote used multiple times may be defined with a name:

<ref name="cc">content</ref>

To invoke a named footnote:

<ref name="cc" />

Footnotes may be defined in groups:

<ref group="cc">content</ref>

Names and groups may not be a numeric integer. The quotes are optional unless the name includes a space, punctuation or other mark. It is recommended that names be kept simple and restricted to the ASCII character set.

<references />

To display the reference list, after all of the <ref>...</ref> tags, include:

<references />

To display footnotes defined in a group include:

<references group="cc" />

Read this guide if you want an extended knowledge on how to use references.

Navigation

This part is where you link the navigation templates that the character is in if there is any, but if there isn't, you can create a new one as long as it has enough pages to fill at least one line of the template. You can also ask an admin to add the page to an existing template.


Examples

Notes

  • This page is meant as a guide of the general idea of how you should structure your page, but don't feel like you need to follow it exactly. You can change a few things around or add other sections, but this should still be the general format.
  • Make sure to follow the rules when making your page.
