Girls Frontline Wiki:Guideline

From Girls' Frontline Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists some guidelines for editors to follow.

If you wish to contribute to the wiki and are unsure of where to begin, please refer to the todo list for some ideas.

General Term Translations

These are the terms the wiki uses for translation. If there you have suggestion or do not agree with the translation, please contact wiki or use the discussion page.

Please see: General Namelist for glossary.

With the release of Girls Frontline EN server, all the available items/skills/costumes/equipment naming are converted to the official terminology used on that server. However all the names for items/skills/costumes/equipment that are not yet available on EN server, their names remains as the translated Chinese phrases.

Updating the main page

The main wiki page uses Template:mainpage. visit the template page and follow the instructions to updpate the main page.

Editing/Creating T-Doll Pages

For page restructuring conveniences, T-Doll pages are made through using a single template, please read it on Template:T-Doll. To create a T-Doll page, simply copy the code in Template:T-Doll, paste them in the desired doll page, and fill in the parameters.

For editors wanting to fill these pages but doesn't know the value, please join the wiki discord channel.

ALL T-doll pages should be created under the Chinese server names, for example AR HK416 appears on the EN server just as "416" due to various issues, the actual page name remains to be HK416, however a redirect of the page from "416" should be made.

Note: Use AimAttackSpecificTarge for "Interdiction Shot" and AimAttackCurrentTarge for "Aimed Shot", those two skills share the same icon.

Editing/Creating Equipment Pages

Similar to T-Doll pages, Equipment pages are made using the Template:Equipment. Copy the code in Template:Equipment, paste them in the desired doll page, and fill in the parameters.

Since equipment names are subject to translation phrase changes, the equipment pages should be created first under the editor's translation. When that said piece of equipment is later released on the EN server, the page name should then be changed.

Guides

Guide pages make use of Template:Guide : Make sure to add {{Guide}} to the beginning of a page to have a guide navbox appear as follows:

Guides
Registration · Tutorial · Strategies
Main Screen · Combat Menu · Formation Menu · Factory Menu · Research Menu · Restore Menu · Dormitory Menu · Friend Menu
Combat · Logistic Support · T-Doll Production · Equipment Production · Combat Simulation · Quests



Guides are split into 3 sections: The beginners guides, Menu translations, and in-depth mechanics analysis.

Screenshots

We prefer that illustrative screenshots uploaded to the wiki follow the following guidelines:

  • Screenshots should be 720p if possible.
  • Labels should be in white text, and should be both bold and underlined. The font used for labels should be Noto Sans (available here).
  • Any labels should be clearly associated with the area of the image to which they refer, either by proximity or by explicitly drawn white lines.
  • Non-essential areas of the image should be blacked out. The preferred method is by adding a black layer with 50% opacity or above between the base screenshot and any labels. In cases where 50% is insufficient, higher opacity levels may be used.

Please use thumbs of 450 width format for pictures to ensure clarity of the image as a thumb. e.g. [[File:A.png|thumb|captionhere|450p]]

Useful Tools
