Using Wiki TemplatesWiki templates are pages that can be included into another page by writing it's name (and maaybe some parameters) into a pair of two curly-brackets like this
Available Wiki Templates. There is always an example for every template on this page.
IF you happen to edit a page for a game that would fit in more than one category of the existing genres, you can add them all to the game. Below are a few points you need to bear in mind.
- Combine categories into sub-categories
- If there happen to be a lot of games that fit into two categories (e.g. TuxRacer fits into Category:Arcade and Category:Racing But there are only e few of them at the time of this writing ) then the idea of a new category suggests itself. This new category should be named accordingly to represent the categories it combines (e.g "Arcade Racing" or similar). But before you create it and put the games into it please create a comment with your proposal somewhere in a talk page (e.g in Category talk:Genres or the talk page of an effected game) Do not change the structure without asking first and with a confirmation of others.
Creating new content
If you want to create new pages in the wiki, check out the layout-templates for the different types of pages found in this wiki:

Date and Time format
If you want to use precise dates (or dates at all) for something in this wiki, please use the following syntax provided by the ISO 8601 standard:
YYYY-MM-DD e.g.: 2005-12-01 YYYY-MM e.g.: 2005-12
These examples are the most common cases, more info on this is located in the link above.
An real-life example in the wiki would be the News page.
