Design principles

  • Consolidate information. One piece of information should be stored in exactly one place. If it needs to be visible in more than one place, transclusion (generally in the form of templates) should be used.
  • Layout should be standardized using templates to minimize the need for moderators to reformat articles.
  • Templates should be easy to use. Sacrifice readability of templates in favor of readability of articles.
  • Information in the wiki should transparently reflect the in-game systems described. Use in-game numbers directly with a minimum of processing. If in-game numbers are manipulated to make them more readable or illustrate a point, document this.
