Welcome, Future Wiki Contributor!


You are encouraged to join the Wiki Discord where contributors of the Wiki have a better line of communication.


This page serves as a guide to help editors get started on this Wiki. While there is much missing and much to do, the wiki is growing fast every day. Please read this article all the way through before making any edits if you are new! It will ensure that the edits you make are of the highest quality!

To Do: on this page you can see what tasks are being done by whom and also where help is needed. If you wish to contribute, feel free to pick a task and mark it as yours by adding your name to it. Alternatively, you can see here for missing information.

General "Rules" of Thumb

  • DO use the Source Editor and please refrain from using the Visual Editor - it totally messses up the Wiki code on pages. If you're not sure how to do something, ask for help!
  • DO ask before making new pages, most missing pages have already been made or are already planned by admins.
  • DO ask questions if you need any help or advice or if you can't find anything.
  • DO add links ONLY to the first instance of each topic mentioned in an article.
  • DON'T add new categories to pages. These are being handled by the admins.

Images

Please make sure you have depth of field, motion blur and the HUD disabled before you take screenshots for the Wiki.

Infoboxes

For characters and bosses, we use 480 × 650 images for infoboxes, PNG. The pages are already set up to display {{PAGENAME}}.png so please refrain from changing the image in the infobox and instead upload the image with pagename.png instead.

Galleries

Go into edit mode, source mode on the page you want to display the images on. Add the image files names to the gallery tags e.g.

    <gallery hideaddbutton="true" position=center>
    Outskirts Wall - Gate Path 01.png
    Outskirts Wall - Gate Path 02.png
    Outskirts Wall - Gate Path 03.png
    Outskirts Wall - Gate Path 04.png
    </gallery>
    

The images are not yet on the Wiki, so they'll display as empty boxes with text on them when you saved.

Click on these boxes to open each image's upload page.

Drag each image onto the "Choose File" button and click upload, it'll name the file the same way as you added it to the gallery list. This way you dont have to faff around with naming uploaded images one by one.

File Names

Numbering::

  • Ashina Reservoir 01.png
  • Ashina Reservoir 02.png
  • Kotaro 01.png
  • Kotaro 02.png

Describing::

  • Kotaro Doing a Thing.png
  • Reservoir from Ashina Castle.png

Avoid:

  • Non-descriptive filenames such as "Screenshot_20190429-96586234" and the like

Linking

When linking to another page in the wiki, instead of using the entire URL as the link, use double brackets and simply type the name of the page. For example, the following code in the Source Editor:

[[Sekiro]]

will appear as Sekiro. When using the main editor, typing in the first pair of brackets will automatically create a pop-up window, which lets you type in the page name, tell you if the page link is valid or not, and allow you to visit the linked page directly from the editor.

You can also link to any heading or sub-heading in a page by adding a # at the end of the page name and typing in the full header name, so the following:

[[Sekiro#Abilities]]

will appear as Sekiro#Abilities.

Heading URLs can be accessed by hovering over the header name and clicking the padlock icon (Ambox padlock gray) that appears to the right. This automatically links you to that header, and from there you can copy-paste just the page name from your browser bar into the source code.

To link like this in the Source Code, add a pipe "|" between the link path and the text you wish to add the link to:

[[Sekiro#Abilities|Abilities]]

This will then appear as Abilities.

Terminology

Try to keep terminology and descriptions consistent throughout the wiki, using formal and impersonal language. Avoid using "you," "we," and other second-person terms, and do not use slang or colloquialisms. Avoid terms like "probably," "looks like," "clearly," "really," etc.

The following is a list of terms as they should be consistently worded (more to be added later):

  • "Defeated" - instead of killed
  • "Awarded for..." - instead of "dropped" and "looted from"
  • "Wolf/Sekiro": when referring to anything involving gameplay such as navigating menus, progressing in the game, discovering or inspecting new locations/objects, etc.
    • When in doubt, try to reword the phrase to not include either one (i.e., "Retreat when [the Wolf] is low on health" could be re-written as "Retreat when low on health.")
  • Enemy Attacks: Use the present and imperfect tense when describing enemy attacks and behaviour (i.e. "Charges forward, spinning into a ball"). Only use future tense if the attack is circumstantial (i.e. "Will jump back if the player gets too close").
  • Trivia/Lore: Unless stated in the game or by the developers, all correlations and references are possibilities, not absolutes. Preface trivia with good evidence as "likely" or "presumably" true.

Trivia

Anything about a specific subject that's not related to gameplay is considered Trivia and should be put under the Trivia heading for that page. If no Trivia section is present, you may add it to the bottom of the page. Please refer to other pages that have trivia sections for its format.
