If an abbreviation (or more precisely, an acronym) is going to be used in an article, the best way to do it is by writing the complete term the first time it appears on the page, followed immediately by the acronym itself inside parentheses. That way it serves as a referrer to the reader while finding more abbreviations in other sections of the article.
Lords of Shadow is a game that overuses quick time events (QTE). Every time one third of the Succubus' health bar has been depleted, the player must perform a QTE.
Terms like QTE, FOV, AoE, etc. are now common in the gaming community. However, an editor must always keep in mind that not everyone knows the meaning of these terms and for that reason they should insist in writing their articles as easy to read as possible.
Thanks again for your replies and have a nice day. ☺
I believe a new template may have to be designed, since Dark Souls III introduced a few new elements, like Skills and Frost damage. Anyway, I don't think it ends up differing much from the weapon templates used for DS and DSII.
Yes. Looking good so far. Unfortunately, I don't understand how the code works in these new infoboxes yet. If you do, would you please edit the template so it doesn't push down the first line of text in the pages it is used in.
Thanks, for mentioning that empty line issue, already fixed template.
Yeah, basicly the same meaning has that icon in game. Depending on that value I'm setting defaults for template, we don't need fields stogage-cap and held-cap if it's unlimited. Besides, there is no need to duplicate information from article in infobox.
Hello LaVey, I'm super new to contributing to Wikia and I have noticed you spend a lot of time contributing. I've posted the locations of all shards for DS III, the Undead Bone Shards, and a progression map I created using the Paint program. Can I ask what it is you're contributing? I can't tell what you're adding or editing and I'm curious to learn more about this "project". Any help would be much appreciated.
Hello there, Cubby, glad to make your acquaintance.
As for your question, what I usually do, is starting the day by reviewing some of the recent contributions to the wiki and correct or add something to them. From there on, I like to go onward and add pages if I find red links and the like. So, as you can see, I don't usually follow a line of work or "project" while I am around. This way, I find working here to be less tedious and instead much more enjoyable, since I can work at my own pace.
If you're looking for something where you can contribute to the wiki, I would suggest you to start by looking at the weapons, enemies, locations, characters, etc. pertaining to Dark Souls III. With its recent release, many of its pages still lack much information.
One last point of advice, if you don't mind; please try to keep excellent grammar and punctuation, and if you're gonna add a new section to a page, make sure you do so in its proper place. You can look to similar pages to the one you're editing to see how they are organized.
Thank you for writing and I hope I was of any help.
As far as grammar I'm close to up to par. There may be jargon or particular words this community uses that I may have learn through trial and error (such as "the player" vs "the caster"). BloodMoon has done a great job with helping me with coding. I'm not too supportive in the coding department as I am truly ignorant to nearly all forms of IT. I figure as long as I don't mess things up too often or too bad then my contributions will be well appreciated and helpful. Thanks for responding back and I appreciate your direction. -Cubby
