Getting Started

Get Started!

Sign up for the wiki

The very first thing is to make a Wikia account. To do that, go to the top right, and click 'register'. Then, fill out the form presented. Keep in mind, your username does not need to be and shouldn't be the name of your character. It shouldn't include any personal information either. Instead, try to come up with something interesting, or use a username you use for a different service, such as pottermore, etc. Do nouse a username that contains personal info. When you are registered, move on to the next step. Also, DO remember your username and password to prevent further problems with your account and wiki activities.

Review Our Policies

Just like a site has Terms and Conditions, our wiki has policies. Before going ahead and starting out, you should review them as a whole, to make sure you stick to our rules. They're short and easy to understand. If you don't abide to the rules in the policies, however, consequences will be presented, so please take the time to read and comprehend them. Reading the policies beforehand doesn't only benefit the wiki's well-being, but also your's.

Getting Approved

Next is getting your character claimed. Claiming on this wiki is the process in which the character is approved for creation. You will need a rough description of you character. To get started, try filling out this form:









You probably wont be approved if you don't have enough history. The wiki would like to know about the character for reasons.

If you can do that, you are ready to be claimed. Go to Forum:Claiming, and follow the instructions provided there. Don't forget to put your signature at the end! (you can do that by clicking the signature button, or by typing four ~. Check back soon to see if you've been approved. If there's a comment. Fix it and comment again leaving 4 ~ and also saying fixed it.

Your Character Page

After your claim is accepted, you should start on a page for your character. Go here to do just that. For the Article title, put in the name of your character. Make sure you spell it correctly, as if you mess up, you will need an admin to fix it for you! Now, once you've made it to your page, there should be a button above the editing space labeled "Character Page". Click that and then fill in all the fields. Also click on both of the puzzle pieces (called templates), click edit, and fill in the information. If you're having problems with them, you can go to the upper right of the page and click the button labelled "Source". In source mode you will see everything in HTML, but you can also better manage the content of you're page. 

Your Talkbubble

To create a talkbubble, do the following:

1. First, type Template: ((Character's Name)) in the below box and click create.

2. Copy/paste the following onto the template page. Remember to change the text that is capitalized.
 |name= (Your Username)
 |nick=(Your Character's Full Name)
 |sig= (Your character's fav. quote, anything like that)
 |text={{{Your Character's First Name}}}
 }} <noinclude> 
 [[Category:UserTalk templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]
An example of a box would be:
|image= 5.jpg
|color= #FAFAD2
|color2= #8B4513
|namecolor= Black
|textcolor= Black
|textcolor2= White
|name= Madeyefire
|nick= Liadan O'Reilly
|sig= 'Ello There!
[[Category:UserTalk templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]
3. Use the character box like so:
{{<Character's First Name>|Character's First Name=Your message.|time=~~~~~}}
{{Liadan|Liadan= Liadan looked around and sat at the piano. She started to play. |time=~~~~~}}

In action:

Start Roleplaying!

Now comes the fun part, the roleplaying! Now, this is less of a traditional roleplay setup than other places, and most roleplays take place character-to-character, on the characters' pages, like you have made. When you first get your page set-up, people will soon comment on your character, welcoming you and starting roleplays. If you would like to reply, click "reply" next to their comment, and insert your word bubble. You've just started your first roleplay! As you move further on, you will also notice location pages, forums, quests/missions and campaigns to roleplay in. They work in a similar fashion. Remember, the admins are always here to help you out. If you would like to socialize with other people or ask any questions, join chat, which is at the top-right side of your screen. Now, have fun and enjoy your stay at our wiki!
