    The first you should know is the wiki uses BBcodes for formatting, like many forums use. It does have limits but you're also allowed to use our templates on pages, which have bits of HTML in them.

    The second you should know is random speculation and opinions don't belong on a wiki. Try to only add appropriate information.


    Editing(top)

    Don't be afraid to edit a page! Give it a try, add what you know, and if you make a mistake it can be easily corrected.

    If you want to edit a page, click the Edit button in the top right of the page. If one isn't there the page may be protected.
    Make your changes, using the preview button along the way to check your work.
    Click the save button and you're done!

    You can also practice in the Wiki Sandbox until you get the hang of things.

    Creating new pages(top)

    To create a new page, click the 'Create New Page' button just below the navigation bar.

    Creating a page works just like editing. Though this time you'll also need to make a title for the page and give it a parent node under the gamemode it is for.

    Before creating a new page however, just be sure the page will be necessary. If you are unsure, make it anyways. It isn't the end of the world if the page doesn't get used.

    Images(top)

    Using images is easy. Find the Insert Image button in your edit toolbar, it looks like a picture of a tree, and click it. You'll be given a box to type the URL in.
    If your image is hosted offsite (preferably Imgur) use the link there.

    Most in-game images are hosted on this site however, just use http://shotbow.net/forum/images/(file) Be sure to replace (file) with something else, like apple.png

    A file list of the item images used here can be found at Wiki Images. Use that when putting images on pages.
