Welcome to the Winx Club Wiki! Here's a beginner's guide to editing and all there is to know about the wiki.

NEW USERS GUIDE
Welcome to the quick-start guide for new users of the Winx Club Wiki. We are always glad to have new users as the amount of information that needs to be added/organized is bigger than the Omega Dimension! Be sure to check out the Beginner's Guide as well. Know what kind of help you are looking for? Visit Contents to search for a solution.

Wikiquette

Main article: Winx Club Wiki:Policy
Main article: Help:Community guidelines

No matter where you are writing, do not use the wiki as a tool to insult, attack, or threaten other users. When discussing opinions, keep it civil and rational. Also, on a wiki whose content is targeted toward children, keep the content, including images, videos, and text, user-friendly. No swearing or content of obscene or sexual nature. Do not abuse any features or distribute spam. Violators of these guidelines will be warned and, if need be, blocked.

Accounts

Main article: Help:Sockpuppet

Sockpuppets (clone accounts) will be permanently blocked, so make sure you have only one account. Wiki policy discourages sharing accounts, but If this does occur, you are held responsible for whatever contributions are made in your name.

Profiles

Main article: Help: Profile

Images

Example

Example 1

We allow users to upload images not pertaining to the series, as well as fanart, but they must be kept on your user page/gallery ONLY and marked with {{UserImage}}, lest they be deleted. The maximum amount of images allowed on your personal gallery is 450.

Videos

We allow users to upload videos not pertaining to the series, but they must be kept on your user page/gallery ONLY and marked with {{UserImage}}, lest they be deleted.

Content

Personally identifiable information such as your age, home address, etc. is not acceptable.

Achievements

Main article: Help: Achievements
Badge-welcome

Welcome badge.

Achievements encourage contributions by awarding users with badges as they make certain types of edits. Logged in users can earn special badges simply by participating in any community that has Achievements enabled. Badges are awarded automatically as a user completes the tasks associated with them. Available and achieved badges are listed on user pages. Our community has a leaderboard to showcase all the achievements and top badge winners.

Page Protection

Main article: Help:Page protection

Page protection is the ability to limit who can edit a page. Administrators and Content Moderators have the ability to both protect and unprotect pages should the need arise. As a new user, many pages will be locked until you are completely registered. This will take about three days. You can ask a staff member to unlock pages for you at any time. Be sure to let them know when you are done so they can relock it.

Talk Pages

Main article: Help:Talk page

A talk page is one of several places where you can speak with your fellow editors.

Article

Article talk pages are primarily used to hash out improvements to a single page.

User

User talk pages are used on user pages.

Identification

Signatures

Main article: Help:Signature

Signatures identify you as the author of a block of text. They should contain an automatic link to your user page, making it easy for others to learn more about you and communicate with you. To sign your name in Source Mode, type four tildes in a row: (~~~~) or click the signature button above the edit box. To make a custom signature, visit this page.

Example Signature

Talkboxes

Talkboxes are a nice way to tell users apart on a talk page. Some users complain that they slow down their devices, so using one is your choice. The template is here for all to use. If you need help, contact one of our administrators.

Example
Username (talk) - “Quote.”
{{{text}}}

Userboxes

Userboxes are a convenient way to tell the community about your personalities, hobbies, etc. See the userboxes listed here.

Personalities
Friendly This user is friendly and loves making friends.

Editing

Main article: Help: Editing

Editing on this wiki is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting. Practice your editing in the sandbox. Need step-by-step tutorials on the basics and even more advanced material? Visit FANDOM University for all your needs.

Mass Communication

Do not promote, solicit, or advertise anything unrelated to the series and make sure all links are free of viruses/spyware.

Forums

Main article: Help: Forum

The Forum feature provides a central location for discussion about the series and other matters important to the community. To ask questions, visit the help desk. To hold votings on important matters, visit the watercooler.

Blogs

Main article: Help: Blogs

Blogs are articles written by one person that can be commented on and organized into a listing like a typical blog. Blogs must be kept on-topic, with no fan-fiction, fan-art, fan-videos, fan-characters, etc. This is a canon wiki, not a fanon one. If you have any fan content, feel free to make blogs for that on the fanon site.

Chat

Main article: Help: Chat

Chat is a feature that allows near-instantaneous messaging between users.

Discussions

Main article: Help: Discussions

Discussions is a conversation feature used to share your thoughts and opinions on anything related to the series.

There are many templates in use in Winx Club Wiki and these are only subset, representing some of the most important and commonly used ones. If you feel that a template belongs on this page, do not hesitate to add it.

  • Category:Templates should list all templates in the wiki, categorized into the various subcategories.
  • The Template namespace always has all templates in the wiki, unsorted.

What are templates?

Wiki templates provide a means to insert the same content over and over in different (or the same) pages. This saves editors the hassle of duplicating the same text again and again, and also helps ensure consistency.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (i.e. {{stub}}). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Detailed instructions on the usage of each template should exist either on the template page, or the template's talk page.

Article management templates

Nominate an article for deletion

{{delete}}

Disambiguation articles

{{disambig}}

  • If you have several articles that have similar or identical names, you may wish to create a "disambiguation" page at the main article name, with the articles taking an extra phrase in brackets afterwards. For example:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Stubbing

{{stub}}

  • When a page has little or no useful information, then it is likely a stub. This template will include them in Category:Article stubs, and is used to list which articles need expanding.

Category templates

General category template

{{category}}

  • This can be added to categories to add general categorizing details. Use in cases where it may be useful to point out to users how to categorize, such as popular categories.

Template category template

{{templatecategory}}

  • This should be added to any template-related categories, to list template-specific categorizing details (these are different to those of normal pages).

Image category template

{{imagecategory}}

  • This can be used to provide instructions on uploading and categorizing photos.

General wiki templates

Clear

{{clr}}, plus {{clrl}} and {{clrr}}

  • This template is used to reduce the amount of non-wikicode used on pages, replacing the code <br style="clear:both;" />. Its use should generally be avoided.
  • You can use {{clr}} instead of the HTML tag that clears space below things like images, pictures and tables, so the following stuff doesn't begin until the bottom of the image, picture or table box.
  • You can also use {{clrl}} or {{clrr}} to clear only left or right floats.

For

{{for|<name>|<link>}}

  • Use at the top of articles as a simple "for x see y" template.

Main article

{{main|<main article>}}

  • Use at the start of a section to link to the main article on it.

Right-aligned Table of Contents

{{tocright}}

  • This template floats the table of contents (toc) on the right. It should only be used when absolutely necessary, to keep consistent design.

Sandbox

{{sandbox}}

T is for template

{{t|<template>}}

  • This template allows you to show example template code (with a link to the templates) without using the template itself. It is used extensively on this page.

Welcome

{{WelcomeIP}} and {{Welcome}}

  • The first (with longer version "welcomeIP" for those of you who like typing more) is to welcome new non-vandalistic contributors who are "anonymous", identified only by their IP number; it encourages them to register.
  • The second template is for welcoming new registered users. Should be customized for the wiki, indicating the pages we most want newcomers to visit.
  • The above two templates are very suitable for having "subst:" prefixed, because they can be edited with additions or deletions appropriate to the apparent strengths of the person being welcomed; e.g. if the contributor has already demonstrated good wiki editing skills you could delete references to pages about "how to edit".

Wikipedia

{{wikipedia}}, {{wikipedia-deleted}}

  • Wikipedia-related templates. Use {{wikipedia}} for articles taken directly from Wikipedia, and {{wikipedia-deleted}} for articles deleted from Wikipedia.

Article/Incomplete

{{Article/Incomplete}}

  • This template is used when a section is incomplete.

CharacterBox

{{CharacterBox}}

  • This template is used to display multiple characters’ info.
