These guidelines are made to ensure that people post high quality information to be shared with other RO players. Violations of any of these rules will result in losing the ability to create / edit and these rights will not be returned quickly.
In a nutshell: Write in a neutral, polite and simple style that can be understood by everyone.
Rules for NyanWiki Users
1. Editors should not use any text that is known to be false. If an editor thinks it is true but is not 100% sure, please diskuss it with other members first to verify it.
2. Mentioning an in-game character name or guild is prohibited. Editors are not allowed to make any sort of personal attacks on any of the pages, including talk pages.
3. Editors are not allowed to post anything that will cause drama. All the article pages are encyclopedic articles, not flamewars or drama. Use polite language throughout the wiki.
4. Edits made should be as neutral as possible in an editor's viewpoints. This means bias should not influence edits (Example: Posting that Hunters are overpowered in Hunter class page).
5. Vandalism is not welcome. Editors should not make edits just to spite other people.
6. Any rumors should not be posted until confirmation; this can be done on a Talk page or on the forums. Any non-officially verified information is defined as such until a source can be found.
7. Absolutely no data, information, or mentioning of other private servers or illegal third-party programs is allowed. Data on game exploits or bugs that can be exploited are similarly not allowed. Report any exploits to the GM team.
8. Only use English or German when creating pages here. Maintain grammar and spelling if possible, especially simple things like punctuation. If pages are written in both languages, you should create links to the other language to allow easier finding of content.
9. Information pertaining to NyanRO takes precedence over that from other versions. Information from official versions is welcome so long as it is confirmed as a kRO-like information. Information such as events, quests, and unique items that are unlikely to be implemented on NyanRO (i.E. iRO custom content or other private servers custom content in general) should be left off the wiki entirely.
Suggestions that are strongly recommended
Violating these won't remove editing rights, but it is strongly suggested that all editors follow them.
|We encourage users to be bold when updating pages. Wikis develop faster when everybody helps to fix problems, correct grammar, add facts, make sure the wording is accurate, etc. We expect everyone to be bold and help make NyanWiki a better encyclopedia. NyanWiki not only allows you to add to, revise, and edit the article — it wants you to do it. It does require some amount of politeness, but it works. You will see. Also, of course, others here will edit what you write. Do not take it personally. They, like all of us, just want to make NyanWiki as good as it can possibly be.
Also, when you see a conflict in a talk page, do not be just a "mute spectator". Be bold and drop your opinion there.
1. Make sure if you are working on a something with a guideline layout (such as working on classes, or skills), that it follows the existing format. This is for a conformity issue. Failure to follow this might result in your article being edited mercilessly. Deletion will only happen should it violate one of the rules above.
2. Make sure your page conforms with existing pages of same type, meaning, if you are working on class pages, make sure its presentation style is same as other existing types.
3. Try to follow currently existing templates for better uniformed entries.
4. The article's writing style should not sound too opinionated or biased towards the writer.
5. Obviously, if your edit is minor, please tick the minor edit box. Minor edits are details such as grammar, formatting, or rewording of existing information.
6. Avoid phrases like "I think" or "this seems". These will be promptly removed.
7. Write boldly and clearly. Make sure the text is readable with structured sentences and paragraphs. Don't add asides, comments, or notes in paragraphs; instead, they should be made into clear sentences.
8. When unsure about an fact or part of the article, simply mention it on the Talk page. A conclusion can be reached and then a clean edit can be made. Writing in the Talk pages is not as strict as the real pages, but the rules remain. Don't forget to sign your comment with two dashes and four tildes (--~~~~) at the end. This automatically attaches your name and date to the text.
