Welcome to the Kubera Wiki Guidebook for editors! This wiki welcomes all contributors, and this article should at least help new editors get started, and provide some guidelines for all editors. Several of the following guidelines are standard among many wikis, and some are specific to this wiki.

Last updated: March 27, 2015

General infoEdit

Existing articles may contain typos, misspellings, or awkward phrasing. If you are good at English writing, you are welcome to add or fix any content here, as long as any information you add is accurate.

  • Article names should be in singular form, not plural. The only exceptions are things which always appear in plural form in the English language, e.g. "pants" (clothing) or "pliers."
  • Only the first word of the article name should be capitalized, unless the name of the article contains a proper noun.
  • The article should begin with a brief introduction that quickly summarizes or explains what the article is about, in at least one sentence. The title or subject should appear in the first line of the introduction, and be in bold.
  • Summaries should be written in the present tense, which is standard for summarized fiction. Past tense can be used for History sections and flashbacks.
    • We are aware that some of the wiki summaries are in the past tense, and they will be updated.
  • Avoid the use of contractions, e.g. isn't, doesn't, and can't. This is a rule for wikis in general, and not specific to this wiki; however, this rule is relaxed in the Spoilers and Trivia sections of episode articles.
  • Use American English spellings, for consistency.
  • Avoid putting spoilers in the main body of an episode article, e.g. if a character appears but his/her name hasn't been revealed until several episodes later, such as Gandharva in Episode 1. However, it is okay to link to the relevant spoiler information, so it is up to the reader whether or not to follow the link. Spoilers should generally be placed in the "Spoilers and Trivia" section of each episode article.
  • Avoid the over-use of slang, or just avoid it altogether, for the benefit of our non-native English readers.
  • Avoid adding speculation and unconfirmed information to articles. The same goes for assumed information; if something was not explicitly stated in the webtoon or on the author's blog, it does not belong in an article. Speculation discussions are fine in the comments and the wiki forum, however. Speculations can also be included in the "Spoilers and Trivia" section of an episode article.

LinksEdit

In summaries and informational articles, please add a link to the first occurrence of a character's name (unless the article itself is about that character) and/or any special objects.

In the Visual editor, highlight the text to be linked, then click the Add link icon in the editor menu. A list of suggestions will often appear after you type the first few letters of the article name you wish to link to.

In the Source editor, you create a link using square brackets; you use double brackets for links within the wiki, and single brackets for external links.

Examples:
  • [[Asha Rahiro]] - links to the article "Asha Rahiro"
  • [[Asha Rahiro|the mysterious magician]] - links to the article "Asha Rahiro" but displays the text "the mysterious magician". The pipe character "|" separates the two fields.
  • [http://comic.naver.com/webtoon/detail.nhn?titleId=131385&no=2 Episode 1 on Naver's website] - links to the first episode of Kubera, but displays the text "Episode 1 on Naver's website"

You can link to the majority of wiki character articles using only the character's first name, such as [[Asha]] and [[Leez]], because the "Asha" article contains a redirect to the "Asha Rahiro" article. One exception to this is [[Kubera]], which will link to the article on God Kubera unless you specify the human Kubera: [[Kubera Leez|Kubera]]

For more information on Wikia links, see Wikia Community Central - Help:Links.

RedirectsEdit

Sometimes a character or item can be known by more than one name, or has multiple spellings. In this case, you should create a redirect page for any and all possible titles to aid in a visitor's search for a particular article.

To create a redirect page, type the following in the Edit->Source window:

#REDIRECT [[ActualArticle]]
e.g. The article Leez contains: #REDIRECT [[Kubera Leez]]

ReferencesEdit

References make it easy to verify information from the webtoon, and help to avoid speculation.

The basic format for creating a reference on this wiki is as follows:

  • Rao Leez's autobiography was seen in his daughter's bedroom.{{ref|1|1}}
  • Leez's "Welcome" cake{{ref|2|89}}

The two references above will appear like this:

  • Rao Leez's autobiography was seen in his daughter's bedroom.[1]
  • Leez's "Welcome" cake[2]

If you hover your cursor over the citation number (e.g. [2]), a link to the referenced article should appear in a box.

The reference links appear at the end of this article, with full episode names.

There should be no space before the reference tag.

Please do not use the <ref> tag to make an external link to the actual episode, in case the translated name of the article changes, or the episode is updated and all references containing the old link become obsolete. It is easier to update the single link on the wiki episode page.

For an identical reference later in the same article when not using the Reference template, use this format:

<ref name="ch1" />

Any page that uses reference tags needs to have this text at the bottom (using the Source editor):

==References==
<references />

If the number of references on a page exceeds 40, then use this text instead:

==References==
{{scrollbox|<references />}}

Please review the documentation for Template:Ref for any updates in reference styles and formats.

ImagesEdit

Make sure any images you upload follow Wikia's Terms of Use. When uploading images, we prefer that you use the PNG format over JPG/JPEG. The Wikia servers will cause JPG thumbnails to become pixellated.

Webtoon imagesEdit

For images directly from the webtoon, please only use images downloaded from Naver, unless English sound effects are necessary, in which case use the images created by The Company if possible. Avoid using images from aggregate sites (like Mangafox, Mangahere, etc.) or even webtoons.com, since their images may possibly be compressed and some detail may be lost.

When uploading an image, select "More options" at the bottom of the dialog box, then select the Fair Use option. If you forget, you can later edit the image and paste the following lines:
     ==Licensing==
     {{Fairuse}}

Put the season/episode number at the beginning of the filename, e.g. 1-07 food display case.png

Crop out all borders. There are rare situations where they may be needed, but in general, no borders on images.

Please add categories to the images you upload. All webtoon images are categorized by arc name and character names, and occasionally city names. Right-click (or command-click) the image thumbnail to open the image page, then scroll to the bottom to find the Add category button. Suggested categories: Images, the name of the arc (e.g. The Golden Knight), and the full names of all characters in the image (e.g. Asha Rahiro instead of Asha).

You can visit the Arc Guide for links to images categorized by arc.

Other imagesEdit

This includes fan art, wallpapers, digitally manipulated webtoon images, and any other image not from the webtoon itself. Please add the relevant category to the image:

Please don't upload any fan art images without the artist's permission.

TemplatesEdit

Templates are typically used to provide content that can be included in many different pages. Administrator-only templates are used to leave sections of the main page open for edits. Here is the list of the most-used templates, and most of them should have documentation.

ModulesEdit

This wiki has Lua enabled. We use a module for our Episode template, and another for printing episode titles based on episode numbers (used by the "title" template, for example). Admins of other wikis are free to copy the code. Only an administrator can edit them at this time.

Module:EpisodeLink - updated every Tuesday when the new Korean episode is released Module:MagicianRank - this provides a quick way to update magician ranks using data in a table

CategoriesEdit

Categories are useful for categorizing articles and images. Categorizing images is discussed in the Images section above.

Categories are automatically added to character and episode articles. Please DO NOT add categories to these files since they interfere with the way Wikia chooses articles under Read More at the bottom of each page.
