Re: Lingo[edit]

Yes, the page for that is Common terms

So I link any lingo to that, e.g. Zoom, right? Moot 21:06, 18 May 2008 (CDT)

Looks like it needs to be in the same case.. Zoom Moot 21:07, 18 May 2008 (CDT)
  • Hi Moot, you can make the visible link text different from the page name... to do that, insert a "pipe", in other words a vertical bar like this: | and then the text you want displayed. So, for instance if you want to link the text "zoom" to the page Common terms, you would use this: [[Common terms|zoom]]. Cheers, Wantok 21:48, 18 May 2008 (CDT)
    • I see, thanks Wantok. Moot 21:52, 18 May 2008 (CDT)

Re anchored links[edit]

Moot, this is the format to assign an anchor on a page. I added this to Common terms

<span id="zoom">'''Zoom'''</span>

The format is

<span id="anchor name"> text to display </span>

To link to that anchor, on that page, it would be...
[[Common_terms#zoom]]

I think that explains it well enough, but feel free if you have any questions.

  • I understand, thanks Murdr.Moot 21:52, 18 May 2008 (CDT)

Performance charts[edit]

The url format...

Just substitute the model name to grab the chart you want. Murdr 11:03, 8 June 2008 (CDT)

Pages for gameplay elements such as "vehicle base"[edit]

Great idea! Yes, a page on each type of base and strat target would work well. Feel free to start off with a Vehicle Base page and we can take it from there. I'd be happy to put together a nav box and/or infobox for these. Cheers, Wantok 22:15, 1 August 2008 (CDT)

Adding pictures on the side[edit]

The simplest way to add a picture to the side is to add a "left" or "right" property to the image tag. So, for instance, if your basic image is [[Image:Online arenas.jpg]], you could position it to the right with [[Image:Online arenas.jpg|right]]. You can also size the image (so long as it's not in .gif format) by specifying a width, like this: [[Image:Online arenas.jpg|300px|right]]. Cheers, Wantok 22:20, 1 August 2008 (CDT)
