So you want to become a student of Tower Prep huh? Or perhaps a teacher is more your style, maybe even a gnome? Or maybe you'd rather work for the Monitors? Well here's your chance....

This manual will help you with the ins and outs of finding your way around this roleplay wiki. Good luck.

Creating Wiki AccountEdit

First things first, in order to participate here; you'll have to be a registered wiki user. If you need help with that please go here: http://community.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Create_an_account

Getting Your Character ApprovedEdit

Next you have to get an approved character. You'll need to have some basics about your character planned out ahead of time:

·         Name:

·         Age:

·         Special Ability:

·         Personality:

·         Appearance:

·         Life Before Tower Prep:

The more detailed the history, the better the odds of having it approved. Your request may not be approved right away, an member of the administration team may leave notes or comments for things that either need to be fixed or better explained, please be patient through this process.

Creating a PageEdit

Once your character is approved, it is time to make a page for them.

Bottom of Form

Simply create a page, using the name of your character as the title of the page. You will want to add all the information you used for the claim. Also add the story of when they woke up at Tower Prep to when they make it to their orientation. You may also add sections for the character's family, friends, current events, etc.

You can make the page how you want, but it should at the very least use the My Character template at the top of the page, so people will know what user the character belongs too.

Template:My Character

Example:

{| cellspacing="0"  |
This character belongs to [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]
|}
     

There are two other templates you can use, Template:Character Infobox or Template:Character Page. You may use either one, or make your own, or do the page however you feel like.

Character Infobox:

{{Character Infobox

|border=

|fontcolor=

|bottom=

|top=

|font=

|image=

|name=

|ability =

|born=

|title=

|gender=

|height=

|hair=

|eyes=

|skin=

|family=

}}

Character Page:

{{Character Page

|border1=

|mainback=

|mainfont=

|border=

|fontcolor=

|bottom=

|top=

|font=

|username=

|history=

|personality=

|ability=

|image=

|name=

|born=

|title=

|gender=

|height=

|hair=

|eyes=

|skin=

|family=

}}


 Making 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. They are most often used in comments on pages, but can be used anywhere. They are for in character communication and not out of character.

So at this point, I'm sure you want to know how to get your own! So now you will go back to the page creator and make the template. To make the template, make the article title Template:FirstName, obviously replacing First Name with your character's first name. Then paste the following code in:

{{Word Bubble Gradient

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

|color      = top bg color

|color3     = top top bg color

|color2     = bottom bg color

|color4     = bottom 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)

|Job        = * Position/Job

|title      = * title, counsellor, teacher, etc

|time       = {{{1}}} or Quote, whichever you prefer

|text       = {{{2}}} or {{{1}}} if you are doing a quote instead of a time stamp above

}}

Template:JoeBlack}

OR with quote instead of a time stamp

Template:JoeBlack

Make sure to leave the {{{1}}} and {{{2}}} there, as it makes the code work right. For the colors, use the hexadecimal code for the colours. Save the page, and use as indicated.
