Template

Article names

Article names should follow this format:

Post:_<Post_title>_-_<Date>_-_

e.g. Post:Rogue gate in the ways? - 06/16/2009 - 14:17

  • Post title should not contain "Re:"
  • Date should be formatted as "MM/DD/YYYY" (include leading zeroes in month/day)
  • Time should be formatted as "HH:MM" (24 hour format, include leading zeroes in hours/minutes), preferably in CST.
    Because of variances in the way the forums displays timezones and daylight savings time, CST, CDT, EST and EDT are all valid.

Linking Posts to Pages

Use the PRel template (e.g. {{PRel|<page>}}) to link posts to existing pages, or if you do not wish to use a link you can include related pages in the subject list of the Post template.

A RefAl template with "p=y" (e.g. {{RefAl|p=y}}) can be used to allow searching for related posts at the bottom of a page.
