Vega Strike name

JackS has stated that the correct name for our project is "Vega Strike". Please only refer to the game as such (with two words), unless it is necessary to write it without spaces (such as in URLs or file names).

Header and title style


If you add headers to a page or make a new page (title), please try to avoid extremely long sentences.

Up to ~4 words should be able to sum up the page. If it's longer you may have to split the content anyway ;)

The name header/title should be formed like a correct sentence. (e.g capital letters = First one of sentence + 1st of names + a lot of abbreviations)

Database entry names

  • Categories (the ones starting with [Category:xxx])
    should always be in plural (as in "Upgrades", "Weapons", "Cargo" etc...). e.g [Category:Upgrades:Repair Systems].
  • Summary pages (e.g the Weapons page or 'sub'-summary pages like Upgrades:Afterburners)
    should be in plural as well.
    Upgrades:Afterburners is perfect. For 'sub'-summary pages all the terms are written in plural ([Upgrades:Afterburners]) .
  • Single entries (like the 'wrong' [Upgrades:mult_afterburner01])
    should use singular e.g Upgrade:Multiplier afterburner (Level 1)
  • Speaking/meaningful names
    Do not use 'mult_afterburner01', but instead formulate a full description as a name.
    For auto-linking we can easily create redirects. e.g [Upgrade:mult_afterburner01] redirects to [Upgrade:Multiplier afterburner (Level 1)]
  • Templates
    Use the templates for database items. It makes it easier to maintain the look and feel of the database.
  • Finally a tip if you are moving/renaming pages. You can use the [Move] button on the top to move and redirect pages to new locations. Even the talk pages are moved and redirected. Linking/redirecting from a misspelled page to the correct one is the way to go. Even if the page's name is completely wrong. Pontiac

When appropriate, please use the templates provided. These are useful for several reasons;

  • Provides a consistent appearance for each item, for example the News Button button_news_small.png.
  • Provides a single point of change, so any changes in appearance will be repeated throughout the wiki.
  • Someone else has done all the hard work of creating images, formatting etc. for you!

See VsWiki:Templates for all the available templates and how to use them.


Classify the content in categories

See Special:Categories for all available (and used :S ) categories, use them wisely.

See the manual and database pages for examples or browse the categories to figure out what categories are used for what content.

Links (Crosslinks)

Please do add crosslinks into the page you are creating/editing, but don't push it.

For example there is no need to re-link a word again and again. In most cases one single link on the first occurrence of the word/term is enough. Of course if there is a long paragraph then a re-link is the better way to go.

General images

Most of the images currently used in the Wiki (especially in the Manual) are located in the wiki-manual gallery.

Due to gallery v2's built-in "security measures", you'll have to locate the image here if you want to link to it: http://vegastrike.sourceforge.net/albums/wiki_manual/

Some images may already be available as template as well under VsWiki:Templates


Thumbnails are a special case. If you want to use one of the thumbnails automatically created by the gallery, then observe the following procedure:

  1. Locate the thumbnail that you want to use.
  2. Copy image location, not the link location (In Internet Explorer, right click on the image thumbnail and go to "Properties" and copy the image address from there).
  3. Paste the image location into the Wiki and add "&ext=.png" to the end. This will allow MediaWiki to detect that it is a PNG image.
  4. When you are done, you should get a link that looks like this: http://vegastrike.sourceforge.net/gallery/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=5842&g2_serialNumber=2&ext=.png (Note the &ext=.png at the end)

See the Wiki and Gallery images forums thread for more information.

Keyboard images

Please see Manual:Keyboard layout for more info on how to easily include keys in you text (via Templates).

Unfinished stuff

If you are writing content for the manual (or general the wiki) and you do not know anything about some part of it, just put the FIXME tags in your text.

You page will then be listed in the where every editor should look into from time to time ;)
