If you're not familiar with this platform, don't worry. Creating a Character Page is really easy, and we made it even easier.

  • Login: Make sure that you have a wiki login, and that you are logged in. In the top right of the screen, you may see a link to log in / create account. If you do, then you are not logged in. Click that link, and log in.

  • Create!: Enter the full name of your character above, as you want it to appear on the Page. You'll be taken to a new page that says "Creating (Your Name)" with seventeen lines of code. Update the following two, then press Save Changes:
    • In the 5th row, replace YOUR_USERNAME with your wiki login name. For example, played by = {{User:Pax}}
    • In the 15th row, or third from the bottom, replace YOUR_FACECLAIM with the Faceclaim's name. For example, Model name = Kate Siegel
  • Fill Out: There will be five editable sections. Click any red link, start typing, and hit Save when you're done. The section will auto-populate in the rest of the page. Remember to Save each one when you are finished.
    • Introduction - a brief description and overview of your character.
    • RP Hooks - you need 3 of these.
    • Gallery - you can add more photos of your character here (or you can turn it off by adjusting gallery position from left to off.
    • Portrait - a photo of your character. Check Used Faceclaims to make sure you're not picking one someone else has already used.
    • Overview - this is your infobox. If you're not sure what to put, navigate to a PC or NPC page of your same splat-type.

And you're done! If you want to add more sections, or if you need any help, ask in the #wiki-help channel on our Discord server; someone will be happy to assist you.
