WWWiki doesn't exist in a vacuum. There are a great deal of other sources of information out there, many of which are used in writing articles for WWWiki. It's always important to cite your sources when you use external works. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism and may be a copyright violation.

For the sake of consistency, please adhere to the system described through the examples below for any citations you add.

Game Books Edit

The basic form for citing a game book includes the game line, the book title, and the page. We've developed a template specifically for books:

{{b|Game Abbrev|Book title|page=XX}}

The {{b}} template sections are as follows:

  • Game Abbrev is either the full name or abbreviation of a game line. For example, VTR or Exalted.
  • Book title is the full title of a book. Be sure to properly disambiguate. For example, VII is the in-character group, so use VII (book) instead.
  • Page is an optional section showing the page or pages on which the cited reference appears.

When there are multiple references on a single page, there are reference templates to use which may help clean things up. The initial tag is {{ref|book01}} (where book01 is any unique reference identifier), and the other half of the tag is {{note|book01}}. This will create a subscript with the ref tag, which will link to the appropriate reference at the bottom where the note tag exists.

The note tags should be placed under a References header with their appropriate reference, like so[1].

References Edit

  • ^  This is where the book reference would be placed.

Books Edit

This is not something which should happen very often, but in the event it comes up, the basic form for citing a book includes the author's name, the title, the publisher, and the year published. It is acceptable to include wiki links if there is (or should be) an article on the subject. Examples from the Star Trek wiki, Memory Alpha:

Journals and Magazines Edit

The citation for a journal entry or magazine should include the author's full name, the article title, the magazine or journal title, the volume or issue number or publication month, and the page numbers.

Web sites (not from periodicals) Edit

Although a great deal of information circulates relatively freely and without credit throughout the web, at WWWiki we consider it important that all information be credited to the best extent possible. Web sites and other online message board postings may be referenced in the following style:
