Introduction Namespaces Templates Contribution Discussion
Welcome to the Contributing Content guide. This is an advanced guide to adding your own content, such as Charms or Artifacts, to the Exalted Wiki. Even if you are not interested in doing so, you still might benefit from this tutorial.

Why these guidelines?

As with all pieces of information, it is important to have quick and easy access to it. This is doubly true for a wiki website, which profits from users quickly finding the items they look for, so they can read and possibly contribute on their own. All it needs is a little bit of work.

Two of the greatest advantages of MediaWiki, the wiki software used here, are the template and category features. These features are capable of sorting and organizing mostly on their own. However the wiki does require its editors to follow a few pre-determined guidelines, such as the naming of their pages and the templates used.

Don't worry, this guide will help you get acquainted with them quickly. You'll be adding your own content in no time.

Important Note (The Elder Sutra of Wiki)

When referencing official content from one of the Sourcebooks, please reference the material rather than reproducing it. Errata and/or book/page references are appreciated. Do not post the contents of the books themselves. No entry should diminish, even slightly, the necessity of anyone owning the book that is being referenced.
