What is a Manual of Style?

As the DragonVale Wiki grows, there are more and more pages being created, and pages do not always follow the same format.

This manual of style has been created to help avoid this, and includes everything which is added to a page, from naming new files, to the order images in a gallery, and how to add notes.

Having the pages as consistent in format as possible will help keep the pages on DragonVale Wiki uniform and appear more professional.

Style and formatting should be consistent within an article. While more than one style is acceptable, editors should not change an article from one style to another without a good reason. Edit wars over differences in styles is unacceptable on this wiki.

Content Control and Article Ownership
Working on an article does not entitle you to "own" the article. Dragonvale Wiki's pages are public property and everyone is allowed to edit it in an attempt to make it better or more accurate.

Always consult with the DragonVale community through Forums before making major edits (i.e. re-formatting page design, inserting templates, etc.) to any of the main DragonVale Wiki pages. This is to ensure that the page's content remains streamlined with the rest of the Wiki's content, and maintains the goal that the wiki remains functional and user-friendly for all DragonVale Wiki users.


To me, style is consistency.

File Naming System

When a new dragon is released, there is a specific way of naming it.

The standard file naming system is:

  1. (Dragon Name)Dragon(Stage).png

There are no spaces, the first letter in the dragon's name is capital, the first letter in the word "dragon" is capital, and the first letter in the stage name is capital.

The "stage" will either be "egg", "baby", "juvenile", or "adult".

For example, let us suppose Backflip Studios releases a "Rock Dragon". The files would be named as follow:

Example
RockDragonAdult.png
RockDragonJuvenile.png
RockDragonBaby.png
RockDragonEgg.png


Update Note: The only permitted file type of the following images is ".png".

Update Note: Please refer the Edit section for more information regarding the file naming system.


Dragonbox

The Dragonbox template uses a complex formula to fill in most of the information for a dragon with the use of a single line of text on each dragon's individual article page. Information such as the dragon's description, the level it is available at, the buying and selling price, the dragon's element, and the dragon's breeding and incubation times are included in the Dragonbox.

The Master Dragon List template acts as a database to store of all the dragons information. All the information can be seen by going to "Edit" and scrolling down the list.

Important Links


Breeding/Obtaining

This section is right underneath the Dragonbox. It gives information about how players can obtain a specific dragon in ways other than purchasing (apart from the primary dragons) the dragon from the market. "Element A" will be the first element listed in the Dragonbox and "Element B" will be the second. "Element A Dragon" would be the basic dragon for "Element A" and "Element B Dragon" would be the basic dragon for "Element B".

For example, the Flower Dragon has its elements listed as Fire and Plant.
Element A = Fire
Element B = Plant
Element A Dragon = Fire Dragon
Element B Dragon = Plant Dragon



Primary Dragons

When (if) a basic dragon is released, the first section under the Dragonbox is titled:

Example, Plant Dragon;

The Plant Dragon is the first primary dragon in the game. It is available in the market for Coin template 100.

[[{{PAGENAME}}]]''''s''' Opposite: [[Pagename's Opposite]]

Example, Blue Fire Dragon;

Breeding a Fire Dragon or a Cold Dragon with a Frostfire Dragon or a Blue Fire Dragon will only result in a Manual of Style or a Cold Dragon.

Automated Names

Automated Names are set by habitat. For example, Lapis Dragon would have gemstone names and Moonstruck Dragon would have moon names. Epic dragons that can live in two habitats, such as the Equinox Dragon, will have both epic habitat names. Assignment is a random choosing.

For more information about automated names for each element, please refer the Automated Names page. The names should be listed in alphabetical order and should also include the "General" names.

For any dragon set, just place {{Automated Names}} under the Earning Rates chart.

Update Note: The names in the template should be alphabatized.

DON'T FORGET THAT AN TEMPLATE START WITH {{ AND END WITH }}
{{Template:Scroll|width = 50%

Gallery

Update Note: Not every page will have a gallery.

A gallery is a way of portraying as many images as possible of the dragon that add value and ARE NOT in the Dragonbox. This means that there will be no Adult, Baby, Juvenile, Egg or Egg Pedestal pictures added!

Galleries should not include images such as "Rock Dragon flying", "Rock Dragon walking", "Rock Dragon swimming" etc. It should only include images such as:

  • Mystery Facebook Notification
  • Mystery Facebook Message
  • Facebook Notification (Limited Sale)
  • Facebook Message (Limited Sale)
  • Facebook Post
  • In-Game Notification
  • Limited Sale In-Game Notification
  • Reward Messages
  • Notifications
  • Limited Sale Notification
  • Last Call Facebook Notification
  • Last Call Facebook Message
  • Last Call In-Game Notifications
  • Last Call Notifications
  • Last Call Sale Notifications
  • Last Call Loading Screen Messages
  • Hatch Menu
  • Breeding Hint
  • Abnormal Glitches (such as the size glitch)
  • Anything else that is important to be noted (original art by users, panaromas, countdown timer expired early etc)

Each gallery must be set to a certain size and position for uniformity purposes.

==Gallery==
<!--DO NOT INCLUDE IMAGES ALREADY DISPLAYED IN THE DRAGONBOX-->
<gallery source="template" type="slideshow" position="center">
IMAGES
</gallery>


There is a certain order to follow - assuming one dragon (which is not the case at the moment) has every single of the following images - the gallery will follow this order:

  1. Facebook Notification
  2. Facebook Message
  3. In-Game Notifications
  4. Reward Messages
  5. Notifications
  6. Last Call Facebook Notification
  7. Last Call Facebook Message
  8. Last Call In-Game Notifications
  9. Last Call Notifications
  10. Last Call Loading Screen Messages
  11. Hatch Menu
  12. Goal
  13. Breeding Hint

Each image in a gallery should have a caption. All captions should be in the same format for on each individual dragon's page. If there is more than one dragon in a notification image, the caption should only name the dragon of the respective page.

Example:

Update Note: A dragon may be released twice in one year if it is limited. In that case, include the month before the year.

Update Note: The filename does not necessarily have to be ".png". It could also be ".jpg" or ".jpeg".

Release History

This only applies to limited dragons, except for the Seasonal Dragon which has the 'Appearance Change History' section.

This is a table that states which date a certain dragon is released or re-released into the game. It also states the date that the dragon was removed from the game.


If the dragon has an affiliated decoration, the following code applies. An affiliated decoration is a decoration that either entered the market along with the dragon, left with the dragon, but ultimately, released for the same purpose.

{|border="1" style=" border-collapse:collapse; border-color:black; margin:auto; text-align:center; width:90%;"
|- style="{{dragonboxheader| {{PAGENAME}} }}; border-color:black;"

|- style="{{dragonboxheader| {{PAGENAME}} }}; border-color:black;"
|'''Affiliated Decoration: [[DECOR HERE| <font color="COLOR">Decor Name</font>]] '''
|}


Example, Love Dragon page;

December 13, 2013 January 13, 2014
January 30, 2014 February 18, 2014
Affiliated Decoration: Bed of Roses

Some limited dragons may not have an affiliated decoration. Thus, the last part in the coding should be removed and the following code would apply.

{|border="1" style=" border-collapse:collapse; border-color:black; margin:auto; text-align:center; width:90%;"

Example, Summer Dragon page;

==Release History==

Release Removal
June 21, 2013 September 22, 2013
December 13, 2013 January 13, 2014

Some dragons may have additional release history information. The dragon could have expired but can still be bred or/and the dragon could have different affiliated decorations during its availability in two different time. In such cases, an additional table should be added underneath the existing one and thus the following code applies.

Update Note: In some cases Type 2 coding may play a role where the dragon may not have an affiliated decoration.
