The following serves as general guidelines on how to format Book pages correctly. We all want to be the best editors we can be and we all want this wiki to grow; so when you are editing, please make sure you're formatting pages correctly. These aren't necessarily rules that you must follow to the letter; they are more along the lines of guidelines to make sure things run smoothly and look uniform.

Below are some tips to help you when editing.


Under Construction Template

  • If you are editing a popular page and want to avoid edit conflicts (that can happen when two or more users try to edit the same page at the same time), feel free to use the {{UnderCon}} template at the top of the page. This will show others that the page is currently being worked on and ask them to refrain from editing until you are finished.
    • Continuously ignoring the {{UnderCon}} template that other users have put up will result in a potential block ranging from at least 1-2 weeks or more depending on the user and the situation.

Creating A Book Page

When creating a brand new page for a book, there are 7 things that need to be considered. They are:

  • the infobox
  • the introduction to the left of the infobox
  • the summary
  • chapters
  • gallery
  • trivia

Tip: When creating a new Book page, it is always wise to have another browser tab/window open with an established Book page. That way you can toggle between the two to compare and determine what you need and what is missing from the page you are creating.

Infobox

For book infoboxes, we use the "Book" template.

The infobox is fairly easy to use. The only fields you will need to edit are the values and the information next to the labels on the infobox. It is recommended for not-so-experienced users to edit in VisualEditor if you are not familiar or comfortable with wiki coding.

Tips

  • 1. When editing infoboxes, it is best to leave an area blank if you are not sure about the information you have. For example, if an editor thinks that a book was released on a specific date but wasn't sure, the user could ask an admin or find evidence to support the fact.
  • 2. Remember to keep in mind that the first chapter of every book is free. When you update the key cost, please take that into account.

Introductory Paragraphs

Introductory paragraphs are the paragraphs you see at the top left of the infobox. They follow a very simple format and again, it is advised that not-so-experienced users use VisualEditor. Below is the structure of an introductory paragraph:

Book name (in bold), is a (genre {the one written in purple bubble} ) book of that was released on (date)

An example of this is:

Touch & Go is a red hot romance book that was released on February 28, 2019.

Tip:

  • Remember to link the series name to its corresponding category.

Summary

The summary of the book tells the reader what the book is going to be about and is used to draw them to the book. In most cases, Crazy Maple Studio will release a summary either on the various app stores or Twitter or the Chapters App itself. The summary should be copied word for word and be written in regular font.

Tip:

  • If Crazy Maple Studio does not release a summary, the synopsis for the first chapter is normally used.


Chapters

The chapters listing of the book is similar to a Tables of Content for the book. It contains the each chapter title and its synopsis. Chapter names and numbers should be in bold, while the synopsis of the chapter should be in block-quote format an in italic. An example of the coding is shown below:


=== '''Chapter 1: Desperate Times:''' ===

<blockquote>""When an overly persistent admirer refuses to get lost, it's time to take matters into your own hands. All you need to do is find a fake boyfriend by the end of the week. Luckily, you have a few favors to call in...""</blockquote>


Which shows as:

Chapter 1: Desperate Times

When an overly persistent admirer refuses to get lost, it's time to take matters into your own hands. All you need to do is find a fake boyfriend by the end of the week. Luckily, you have a few favors to call in...

Gallery

Galleries are the fun part. They can brighten up the mood of an article and can make a page popular. When creating galleries, there are a few things to note:

  • Be aware that we do not add values like widths or other customization options to the gallery tag.

With books, galleries includes

  • Cover First Announcement {The squared version of the cover}
  • Cover {The long version of the cover}
  • Blank Cover {The version of the cover without the title}
  • Cover Comments Section {The version of the cover that is in the comments section}

The coding is as follows:

Gallery

< gallery >

</ gallery >

Tip:

  • When editing these, take out the spaces between the < and "gallery" and > . This was just to show the coding.

Trivia

The trivia section is for fun facts or things revealed in-game or by Crazy Maple Studio relating to the book. It is also to write the number of the book if it's part of a series like this

It’s the first book of the The Dare To Love series.

Other Rules

As always, practice netiquette.

  • Avoid CAPS as that equals SHOUTING.
  • Avoid excessive spacing for "dramatic effect".
