Player pages

  • Here is the general guide for player pages Player Entry Template
  • Players may only have one player page, if they have multiple personas they must all be housed on a single page.
  • Award listings as copied from the ORK are not permitted. Awards are housed on the ORK, the wiki has listings of achievements and major awards like titles and knightings. It is not intended to be a legitimate source for ladder award verification. It leads to over editing, and falsehoods.
  • Player pages should only not include titles in the page name. Just player name.
  • Personal wiki pages belong (not in the copyright sense) to the people they are about. If the player would like the page removed or edited it is within their personal purview, with the following caveats.
    • True happenings: Thing such as banning can and should be included on personal pages for the duration of the banning. After the banning the information can be moved to the player talk page.
    • Knights: Personal pages of knights may not be removed, They are apart of club history and those pages are used for statistical purposes. All information with the exception of the knighting information and categories pertaining may be removed.
    • Banned players: Permanently banned players information must must remain on the wiki for informative purposes. Should include the Category [[Category: Banned Players]]
    • Players that have been stripped of honors may also not have their pages deleted. Should include categories [[Category: Stripped players]]

Photos

  • Player pages may have one photo uploaded to the wiki. Other images may be linked from other sources such as image hosting sites. Space on the wiki servers is limited, photos are a large chuck of that data. Player photos should include appropriate categories [[Category:Player Photos]]
  • Player photos may only be images of the person, not of say, a duck.
  • Companies and households are encouraged to include a group photo and one of their heraldry.
  • Chapters are also encouraged to include a group photo and one of their heraldry. Chapter heraldry photo uploads should include appropriate categories [[Category: Active Chapter Heraldry]] or [[Category: Defunct Chapter Heraldry]]

    • Categories Year founded: [[Category:Founded in 2001]]

    • Categories for Affiliation: [[Category:Active Freeholds]], [[Category:Active Crystal Groves Parks]]
    • Categories for Location: [[Category:Active Louisiana Chapters]], [[Category:Defunct Virginia Chapters]]
      • For the purposes of these categories because there are so few outside of the US, countries like Canada, and Japan are treated as one category, like a state.
