Frequently Asked Questions page of the Tresario Archives. This page will help you to answer a questions you might asked. If you wish to learn more about the Archives editing, refer to the Editing Protocols page. The Guidelines and the Editing Help pages should help you ever further about Archives coding and how to make a good article.

How to..

...Requesting an Account?

Before you start, you need to register to the Tresario Archives by requesting an account by clicking "Request account" link in top right of the page or just by simply click this link: Special:RequestAccount. Tresario Archives staff will accept your account request and you can login to your account.

...Create a page?

To make a new page, firstly you need to login to your account. In order to create a page, you need to writes a page you wish to create in the search bar above. If it's direct you to a created page, then your page has been made already. If the page hasn't been made, you can create it by clicking the red links on "Create the page "yourpage" on this wiki!". Make sure you are not making the same type of page twice. For example, there is no need to create a page about the TCF and the Tresario Core Fleet. The page TCF should be redirected to Tresario Core Fleet, as Acronyms are not allowed in page titles. More on redirecting will be explained later.

...Edit a page?

In the article page, you'll see "Edit" link at the top of the page. When clicked that link, you are able to start editing the page. A blank area will appear where you can write about the article. You will need to know how to use Archives coding in order to make a good article. Check out the Editing Help page for more information on that.

...Create your own Character page?

Search your character name in the search bar and then create the page if its not exist. You'll see blank form to edit, right now you can enter a Character infobox (see:protocols page to know more about infobox). A Generic Character infobox should look like this:

{{Infobox Character
| name = 
| image = 
| homeworld = 
| race = 
| clan = 
| house = 
| mother = 
| father = 
| marital status = 
| spouse = 
| partner = 
| siblings = 
| children = 
| born = 
| died = 
| gender = 
| height = 
| weight =
| skincolor = 
| hair color = 
| eyes color = 
| affiliation = 
| title = 
| rank = 
| positions = 
| prior affiliation = 
| awards = 
| signature = 

Now enter information about yourself. Where it says "name =" type "Your name". Where it says "homeworld =" Type where you where born, etc.

...Create a Heading?

Headings are a great way to organise your article to sections. There are 6 levels of Headings. The first Heading is the biggest, getting smaller down to the 6th Heading. To create a Heading, use a "=" sign before the Heading and after it. An example for the 6 Level Headings:

= Heading 1 =
== Heading 2 ==
=== Heading 3 ===
==== Heading 4 ====
===== Heading 5 =====
====== Heading 6 ======

...Style text?

Styling text is very important when writing an article. Writing in Bold or in Italics can improve your article's quality.

Use 3 apostrophes ('''Bold''') to create something in bold.
And use 2 apostrophes (''Italic'') to create something in italics.

To make something Bold & Italic, use:

5 apostrophes = '''''Bold & Italic'''''

To make something underlined or strike

Use <u>content</u> for underline.
And <s>content</s> for strike.

...Make links?

Links are not less important than anything else while constructing a good article. They are great for navigation. To make links use one, or two brackets.

A simple Internal link (Tresario Archives):

[[Tresario Archives]]

Internal link with a text (TSK):

[[Tresario Star Kingdom|TSK]]

A numbered External link ([1]):


External link with link text (Tresario Star Kingdom Holonet):

[ Tresario Star Kingdom Holonet]

...Make lists?

There are various types of lists and Indents you can make. Indents can be created plain, with bullets, or numbered.

If you write:

: indent
: indent
:: more indent
::: even more indent 

It would appear as:

more indent
even more indent

If you want a numbered list or bullets, write:

For bullets:
* bullet
* bullet
** sub-bullet
* bullet

And for a numbered list:
# numbered list
# numbered list
## sub-list
# numbered list

To get:

  • bullet
  • bullet
    • sub-bullet
  • bullet


  1. numbered list
  2. numbered list
    1. sub-list
  3. numbered list

...Add an Image?

Images are one of the most important things to include in an article. An article without images is boring, and should be edited. The only way to display images in our Archives is to simply, post the direct link of the image.

...Make a Table of Contents?

A Table of Contents is added to your article as long as it is long enough and has more than 3 Headings. It's there automatically and is important in almost every article. However, if you wish to disable the Contents along with the "edit" link for each section, type:


...Sign my signature?

In Talk pages it is important you identify yourself by adding your signature in the end of the post. To add a signature, press on the Add my Signature button.

The signature will include your name, and the timestamp.
