Style Guide[edit source]

This section serves to keep this wiki consistent from one article to the next. (Based off of Obduction wiki's style guide: https://obduction.gamepedia.com/Talk:Obduction_Wiki - Thanks, TheFloydman!) You should also look at https://help.gamepedia.com/Manual_of_Style, but the below list is some more unique and basic things.

  • The word "Everspace" should always be italicized when referring to the title of the game.
    • Everspace - ''Everspace''
  • When linking the word "Everspace", the link should be directed to the Everspace page, not just the wiki's main page. ("Everspace" should still be italicized when linking.)
  • Page titles should be in sentence case. This means that you should capitalize the article title as if it were a sentence without an ending period. Only the first word and proper nouns/adjectives should start with a capital letter.
  • Upgraded Equipment variants like 'Fire Rate Mod Mk2' should not have a capitalized k in 'Mk'. This is not consistent in-game, but it will be here.
  • Please follow the file naming format. It should be something like this: File:GeneralThing-SpecificThing.filetype. If you're confused, try looking at similar files.
  • Most files older than January 2018 will have the older naming format which always had Everspace in the first part of the name.
  • Except for very short quotes, articles should paraphrase source material, not copy it. If context is needed, refer the reader to the source material instead. This should be easier once the wiki has transcripts of everything in the codex among other things
  • Galleries should follow this format : <gallery mode="packed" style=text-align:left> </gallery>
  • References made using <ref></ref> automatically appear at the bottom of the article. Add "== References ==" (without quotes) to the bottom of the article so that they appear nicely in a section. This should not be done if there are no references because you will just be creating an empty section.
  • Add an infobox when appropriate.
  • Proofread before you finish creating/editing a page. This will save a lot of time down the road. This short guide is very useful.
  • The Minecraft Wiki and No Man's Sky Wiki are great examples of what we can achieve visually and textually. Let them inspire you in your work here.
  • For more visual styling (such as with css, templates, and infoboxes) see the official community style guide made by Rockfish, dealing with colors, fonts, logos, and elements. File:ES2-CommunityStyleGuide.pdf
