Thank you for your interest in expanding MarioMarconipedia. Here's hoping you find the process to be stimulating, enlightening and HIRARIOUS!


How you can help build MarioMarconipedia

  • If you have a little experience in wiki page coding, mail merge codes in a word processor, or anything similar, then you're welcome to jump right in and help porting Facts About Mario (FAM) from the source of this fountain of knowledge, our Digital Spy Big Brother forum thread Facts About Mario – just use the MarioMarconipedia Page Templates below, and you're set to go.
  • If you'd like to learn how to use the templates below, and how to enhance MarioMarconipedia in other ways, a series of FAM Porting Guides are being prepared to help introduce newcomers to the wonderful world of wiki building, and how to use their newly acquired wiki page coding skills to help build MarioMarconipedia.

Templates for MarioMarconipedia Pages

These three page templates† will help you to easily add content to MarioMarconipedia that fits right in with the way that this wiki works.

  1. The majority of MarioMarconipedia is made up of FAM Pages – where you'll find two or more Facts About Mario under an explanatory Page Title
  2. Each FAM contributer has their own Category Page – an index of all the FAM Pages on which one or more of that contributer's FAMs appear
  3. To help readers browse, there are a number of Subject areas, which appear in the menu box top right on each page, each of which also has its own Category Page – an index of all the FAM Pages on which one or more FAMs in that Subject area appear

† "templates" in the widely used sense of a pre-developed page layout used to create new pages of the same design, rather than the narrow technical sense of a MediaWiki template

Template for a Typical MarioMarconipedia FAM Page

You use this template most of all, to compose a new FAM Page or add to pre-existing FAM Pages, such as Custard Creams.

Here's how the text-n-codes content for a typical MarioMarconipedia FAM Page looks when abstracted to a template, with placeholders where the page's unique content will fall.

<!-- Page Title: PageTitle -->

{{MarioMarconipedia menu box}}  <!-- leave this line at the top of your page (so the navigation menu box appears top right) and add page content below -->

FirstFAM
{{contributed by|username1}}

----
SecondFAM
{{contributed by|username2}}

----
ThirdFAM
{{contributed by|username3}}

<!-- ----   for further FAMs, copy-n-paste these 3 lines, delete the comment codes and these comments -->
<!-- AnotherFAM   remember to add a [[Category:Subject]] and a [[Category:username]] to the end of the page, as needed-->
<!-- {{contributed by|username}} -->

[[Category: MarioMarconipedia]] <!-- leave this line at the bottom of your page to make it part of the MarioMarconipedia Wiki -->
[[Category: Subject1]]
[[Category: Subject2]]
[[Category: Subject3]]


Placeholder Replace with Example Rendered as

Template for a MarioMarconipedia Contributer's Category Page

When you add a FAM from a contributer not previously represented within MarioMarconipedia, their contributed by username and Categories: username links show red – click on one of them, then add the contents of this template to their new Category Page, which will then look similar to Whispers' Category Page, indexing all the FAM Pages that contain a contribution from Whispers.

Here's how the text-n-codes content for a MarioMarconipedia contributer's Category Page looks when abstracted to a template, with placeholders where the contributer's username will fall.

<!-- Page Title: Category:username -->

{{MarioMarconipedia menu box}}  <!-- leave this line at the top of your page (so the navigation menu box appears top right) and add page content below -->

Welcome to the Category Page of '''username''', a contributer to the [[MarioMarconipedia]] wiki.

[[Category: MarioMarconipedia]] <!-- leave this line at the bottom of your page to make it part of the MarioMarconipedia Wiki -->
[[Category: MarioMarconipedia contributers]]
Placeholder Replace with Example Rendered as
username DS:BB username of this FAM's contributer Welcome to the Category Page of '''Rodarama''', a contributer to the [[MarioMarconipedia]] wiki. Welcome to the Category Page of Rodarama, a contributer to the MarioMarconipedia wiki.


Template for a MarioMarconipedia Subject Area's Category Page

If you think we need another Subject area, like those in the yellow SUBJECTS area of the menu box top right, then add the contents of this template to its new Category Page, which will then look similar to the Animals and Mario Category Page, indexing all the FAM Pages that contain a contribution about animals.

Here's how the text-n-codes content for a MarioMarconipedia Subject area's Category Page looks when abstracted to a template, with placeholders where the subject name will fall.

<!-- Page Title: Category:Subject and Mario -->

{{MarioMarconipedia menu box}}  <!-- leave this line at the top of your page (so the navigation menu box appears top right) and add page content below -->

Welcome to the Category Page of '''Subject and Mario''', from the [[MarioMarconipedia]] wiki.

[[Category: MarioMarconipedia]] <!-- leave this line at the bottom of your page to make it part of the MarioMarconipedia Wiki -->
[[Category: MarioMarconipedia subjects]]
Placeholder Replace with Example Rendered as
Subject A Subject that would sit comfortably alongside those in the yellow section of the menu box top right (also to be found in the Subjects Index) Welcome to the Category Page of '''Literature and Mario''', from the [[MarioMarconipedia]] wiki. Welcome to the Category Page of Literature and Mario, from the MarioMarconipedia wiki.

When a new Subject area is added, it needs to appear in the yellow SUBJECTS area of the menu box top right, the coding for which is a little more tricky. If you'd like to do it yourself, it's in the Template:MarioMarconipedia_menu_box (Template: as in the narrow technical sense of a MediaWiki template); otherwise please talk to Dalinian about it, and he'll add your new subject to the menu box source code.

Mariopedian Sandboxes

If you would like a place to play around with wiki building ideas without them being a formal part of the MarioMarconipedia readers' experience, please feel free to add a sandbox page link here, from where you can bag a quiet zone for the exploration of possibilities – and from where you can always copy content to a real MarioMarconipedia page later.
