[edit] Characters

When making a character page, please use the full name of the character. You can then make another page for the short version of the name and then redirect it to the actual page with the full name.

[edit] Nice Job

Front page looks real good ;)

[edit] Character Page

Added Character Pages--Aranu 07:19, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Response

Yes, every major character in MGS should have their own page. One single page for every character is not a good idea. You want to have fleshed-out character bios for all characters, so they all need their own pages.

I'm going to be adding infoboxes to all the game pages soon, and will probably update the header with more links to MG games as well.

[edit] New Pages

When you make new pages guys, make sure you add the header to the page. Copy the code from an existing page and add it to the very top of the page you're creating. Cheers, X_MANBEARPIG_X 19:47, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Re: Header

Instead of copying the entire header code I think someone should figure out how to use a template. That way if we change the header code in the future it changes in all pages (that's how templates work right?!?). I'm getting worried that if we need to add a new game to the series or reorganize the header it will be a huge effort to edit every single page and I'm hoping a Template will prevent that.

[edit] Header

I went through every page on the wiki and added the header template. =)

[edit] Re: Character Page

That page really isn't necessary. There's a much easier to way to do that and that's using the Category feature. At the end of every character page, just add [[Category:Characters]] and then add text into that category page. It's much easier then having to continually update the manually done page. I also suggest adding new categories to character pages such as for FOXHOUND, Dead Cell, Cobra Unit, Villains, Living Characters, Deceased Characters, MGS1 Characters, and so on. ;)

[edit] Main Pages

Hey guys,

We're working on creating a listing of the main hub pages to help give users direction on the main page of the wiki, like seen here on the Diablo III wiki.


I'm going to try to compile a list here, feel free to add to the list, and help as much as you can until we finalize it.
