Creating the Page

In order to create a new card page you will need to preload the Card Page Template onto the page. To do this, you can either use the article creation box on this page or the main page.

Once you have the template you can edit it to reflect the card in question. You will need to specify a number of attributes about the card, documentation on how to do this built into the template.

If you have any questions, please contact Aliyon or Rodamn


To create a new card page, enter the card name in the following box.

Please make sure it is spelled correctly.


Modifing an Existing Card Page

There are great many card pages on the site that are currently outdated. They need to be brought into line with the default Card Page Template. Many also have no content. Adding card descriptions, combo, counters, etc would be a great help.

Card CategoriesEdit

Note: Template:Card Categories is depreciated and has been merged into Template:Infobox card.


Description
This template automatically categorizes a card page into the standardized card categories.
Usage
The simplest route is to create a new page for the card (prefixed the Card: namespace), and then click on the Card Page preload button. Doing copies a standard card page template, which includes this template. Alternately, the following code can be copied into an existing card page that does not already have it:
{{Card Categories
| type    = [C, B, or S]
| faction = [R, B, G, or P]
| era     = [1, 2, 3, or 4]
| edn     = [1...n]
| rarity  = [C, U, R, UR]
| class   = [Soldier, Archer, Dominator, ..., Tower, Fortress, Hut, ..., Spell, Arcane]
| race    = [Human, Beast, Sun Elf, ...]
| size    = [S, M, L, or XL]
| attack  = [*, S, M, L, or XL]
| opt1    = [Optional Category Name]
| opt2    = [Optional Category Name]
}}
Most parameters are self-explanatory. The optN parameters are special in that they automatically append the word Cards to the parameter given. Thus, opt1 = Crowd Control categorizes the page into Category:Crowd Control Cards. ;Example:
The following code... ...is replaced by the following code:
{{Card Categories
| type = C
| faction = P
| era = 1
| edn = 1
| rarity = U
| class = Soldier
| race = Human
| size = S
| attack = M
| opt1 = Tank
