Mordred and Rogue, do you guys have any particular format or template for each creature's page? Also, Rogue, I'm going to post your message about bestiary pages here. Can you also explain how to put a category on those pages as you described? I'm not familiar with the procedure. —Case454f 05:27, June 22, 2010 (UTC)



Can't we create an index page for a common bestiary and then link each entry as, for example, Bestiary:Cuatl, Bestiary:Bear, etc. Then, each bestiary entry utilize a template that includes a picture and a common format for the game statistics? When a creature is created, the steps would include creating the write-up, posting the picture, and editing the bestiary index to link to the new entry. I'm working on a bestiary of my own but would love to contribute to a unified effort like this. —Case454f 08:10, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Bestiary:Bestiary would require wikia staff to create a new namespace—which this is a bad idea, makes searching much harder. Make sure you add them to Category:Bestiary. Possibility call them them Bestiary (bestiary) if you worried about name conflict. But I'm not particlly worried about that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Roguebfl (talkcontribs)

but I think that would be a good next project for me. But When I do it will mimic the format SJ Games has used, so if you want to use that in the mean time go right a head.—Roguebfl(talk) 06:58, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
We now have the template. —Roguebfl(talk) 11:07, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
As to how to add a category. The Wikicode is simply having [[Category:Bestiary]] on page, normally at the bottom. That been said the default skin on Wikia (Monaco) also has an "Add Category" button at the bottom of the page where you only need to type "Bestiary" into the box. —Roguebfl(talk) 06:58, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
