How to Post Logs

So, you want to post your log. We'd love to see it. Follow these easy instructions below to post it:

1.) Login.
2.) Go to the Logs page via the menu link.
3.) Click Edit in the lower right hand corner.
4.) The page's code will come up, looking something like this:

[[collapsible show="May 2010" hide="May 2010" folded="yes"]]
__May 1, 2010__
**Title:** [[[log:050110-1 |Stolen Kiss]]]
**Quick Description**: Jacob kisses Bella and Bella breaks her hand.
**Cast:** [[[pc:Bella]]] and [[[pc:Jacob]]]
[[/collapsible]]

Do not mess with the [[collapsibleā€¦.]] part unless you need to make a new month. If you need to make a new month, you can just copy and paste the [[collapsibleā€¦]] code or alert a staff member on the game.

Just copy and paste the block of text with the Title: Quick Description:, etc. onto a new line WITHIN the collapsible code and then fill it in with your info. Putting stuff between the square brackets makes a link.

Title should be given in log:<link>|<title> format. But what should the link be?
We post all our logs in the format of <MMDDYY-#> so you need to see which # your log will be. The date should be the OOC date that the scene took place.

See if there are any other logs from that day. If so, yours will be the next # in line. If not, yours will be MMDDYY-1.

DO NOT delete or overwrite someone else's log and links. You need to copy and paste the code to add yours to the list, not overwrite it.

5.) Finish the edit and save the page.
6.) Now view the page and make sure it is okay. You should have made a link to your new page in the Title part by putting brackets around the name of your new log.
7.) Click that link. It doesn't exist yet so the wiki will ask you if you want to create a new page. Click create page.
8.) As long as you left the link named log:<MMDDYY-#>, it will automatically bring up the page template for logs.
9.) Fill in the necessary information. Make sure to leave the ==== in place.

10.) Save the page.
11.) Click Tags in the lower right hand corner.
12.) Add tags. Include names for all characters involved in the scene as well as the four digit ooc year and the full name of the ooc month of the log. (Use a - in place of a space or ' if required.) To include the log in the logs listing for an NPC add the tag 'npc-<name>'.
