Collab: Level Articles
« on: September 16, 2012, 04:24:51 PM »
Based on this policy. I propose that we do this one game at a time, starting with New Super Mario Bros. 2.

I've split World 1 (New Super Mario Bros. 2), and you can see the general format (example 1-1).

To do for NSMB2: split the rest of the worlds, create {{NSMB2 Levels}} navbox.

I meant to make a thread about this a while back with a ridiculously huge list of levels that need to be created and etc, but my college workload killed it.

Anyway, here's a basic template for categories and sections that the overwhelming majority of level articles is going to have:

Quote
{{level
|title=
|image|game=''[[]]''
|notes=
|before=[[ |<<]]
|after=[[ |>>]]
}}


==Overview==

==Star Coins/Star Medals/Dragon Coins/whathaveyou==

==Special Areas==
(if applicable)

==Exits==
If the level has more than one exit.

[[Category:Places]]
[[Category:Levels]]



Quote
oh geez this is going to be huge ; i say we sticky this

That's right.

What about levels with A, B, C and forks in the overworld? Like, there's one path to go to x-3 but another that goes to x-A?

You mean for before/after? Something like this: World 1-4 (New Super Mario Bros. 2).

It's worked-up in the policy that the page titles will be 1-Castle, 1-Cannon, etc. We could do a disclaimer or something at the top of the page that the title is actually the image thing.

I did a test with {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and {{world}} yesterday. It failed.

Something like this is possible, but it's not our highest priority right now.

Couldn't you do it as 1-[[image]] in the opening paragraph?

The new format is great. Perfect for when you have the level in mind but don't remember which letter/number it is.

Right now I'm doing some speed-splitting to move this along. To do: follow-up with proper formatting.

thing is i'm not a sysop or 'crat so i can't split nearly as fast as them

Thanks, I'll add it to the other worlds after I finish cleaning up the articles themselves.

I've added the template to World 2. For now, I have to go to school in a few minutes, so I won't have enough time to add it to World Mushroom. I'll probably be able to add the template when I come back, though.

Yes, and these articles should remain a focus for a while. I might not have time to do another large split-job for some time anyway.

Let's make sure we have screenshot for all the infoboxes, including rainbow courses. A gallery of star coin locations for each level would be great.
