FANDOM


So, you're new here and have absolutely no idea what to do? I've got your back.

Sign Up/Log InEdit

Keep in mind, your username does not need to be the name of your character, and is even discouraged.

Sign UpEdit

To do that, go to the top right, and click where it says register. Then fill out the form, and go through the process. Please do not make a new account if you already have an existing account to create more original characters, it is a violation of the Wiki Policies.

Log InEdit

If you have an account on another wiki, you could use it for this one. After all, all accounts are universal for a wiki, right?

Make Your Own CharacterEdit

Even better, you can make your own character! To make your own character, fill this form:

Name:
Image: (check the "Getting an image" part of this Guide to know more)
Gender:
Age:
Height:
Address:
Occupation(s):
Family:
Relationships:
Friends:
Enemies:
Interests:
Talent:
Weaknesses:
Education:
Portrayer: (Put your username and the link to your message wall.)

After filling the form, send it to this page, and wait for someone to approve your character.(Make sure to read the instructions on the page.) After that, you can go make your character page (see below).

Character PageEdit

For a template, click here.

For the Article title, put in the name of your character, and click here to create your character page. Make sure you spell it correctly, as if you mess up, you will need an admin to fix it for you! Click edit, and fill in the information. If you're having problems with them, you can go to the upper right of the page and click the button labled "Source". In source mode you will see everything a little differently. This works for every user. You must provide your own character page, in your character's POV.

Adding the InfoEdit

Now you need to add the info for your character. Below the stuff I had you copy in, put in your characters information. A good rule of thumb is to break it up into sections: one for your appearance, one for your history, one for your personality, and one for your stuff. The easiest way to make one of these sections is to use a title format. So what you do is type what you want the title to be, for our example, lets say "Appearance". Then highlight the text (double click the word) and look towards the top of the screen, on the left. You should see a box, that says normal. Click that. A menu should appear. Click "Heading 2". Done! Now fill out the relevant information for that section below the heading, and repeat when you get to your next section. You are now almost done with your character page. Just one last step!

Getting an ImageEdit

So, earlier on, you may have noticed that your character will need an image. Most users just use a photo of a celebrity, which is fine, so long as that celebrity is not already being used by another user, you'll have to save the photo, then upload it to the wiki. [Click here to see the celebrities being used.]

Getting a Word BubbleEdit

Word Bubbles are little speech bubbles the people use when they want to indicate that their character is saying something, as opposed to them. This works for all characters.

You must make a template (I hope you know how to make one!). Put it on "Source" mode. It must say this:

{{Word Bubble

|image = just the image name, no file: or brackets

|color = top bg color

|color2 = bottom bg color

|textcolor = top txt color

|textcolor2 = bottom txt color

|line = middle line color

|fonttype = font style

|charname = how you want their name to appear

|charpage = page with char info, (actual page/character name)

|cabin = just put "Hollywood Arts High School" or your character's house

|godparent = just put the name of your mom or your dad

|title = your occupation

|time = {{{1}}}

|text = {{{2}}}}}

Make sure to leave the {{{1}}} and {{{2}}} there, as it makes the code work right. For the colors, you can use words, such as darkblue, or a hex color generator. Save the page, and use as indicated. If you want to use the hexadecimal code for the colours, which gives you a wider variety of colours to use, here is a colour picker to help you.


To add the time and message in place of the {{{1}} and {{{2}}}, you would write it like this: {{YOUR CHARACTER NAME|~~~~~|MESSAGE}}

Start Roleplaying!Edit

Now comes the fun part, the Roleplaying (RPing)! Now, this is a less traditional RP setup than other places, and most RP takes place character-to-character, on the characters' pages, like you made. This is where the IMs come into play, as well. When you first get your page set-up, you will soon get IMs from people telling you Welcome, at the bottom of your character page, in the comments. Pick one of these people that you think you might want to reply to, and click on the name in the IM. Then go to the bottom of their page, to the comments, and put in an IM introducing yourself. You've just started your first roleplay! Have fun, and if you have any questions, join the chat. For more information on chat policies, check out this page.
