Style Manual

Please note that parts of this manual might be outdated during updates. The update to this manual is a work in progress.'

This style manual dictates rules and guidelines for creating and editing build pages. Strict adherence will almost never get you banned and some flexibility is afforded to new users. However, blatant disregard for the rationality and intentions of this guide is sufficient ground for a ban.

General Writing Styles

These sections should provide a loose understanding of what is considered an ideal writing style.

Voice

  • Maintaining an objective writing style (avoiding "I", "We", "You") is encouraged.
  • Using CAPITAL LETTERS for emphasis is strongly discouraged.
  • Limit bold words. In most cases there is a precedent set for what can be bolded. Language that needs to be emphasized should never be bold but can be italicized (This includes single words and short phrases).

Language

  • Define acronyms at least once before using them. (Don't expect your reader to be well-versed in the terminologies).
    • Example: "Smoke Screen (SS) is an ability used by Ash."
  • Omit needless words; Don't use 5 words when 3 will do.
    • Good Example: Smoke Screen will also apply to any equipped companion
    • Bad Example: Whenever a tenno is using Smoke Screen, Smoke Screen effects will also be applied to companions.
  • Reserve ultimatums/absolutes for actual 100% cases; Avoid "always, never, best, worst"; Choose "almost always, almost never, close to best, close to worst":
    • Good Example: A very difficult build to counter
    • Bad Example: Always the worst build to counter ever

Pattern

  • Maintain structure. It is up to you to notice the implied structure/pattern when editing a page.
    • Good Example #1:
      • Ability1- Effect1 will provide this and that.
      • Ability2- Effect2 will do so and so.
      • Ability3- Effect3 will happen automatically.
    • Bad Example #1:
      • Ability1- Effect1 will provide this and that.
      • Ability2- Effect 2 will do so and so.
      • Effect 3 will happen automatically upon activating Ability3.

Creating Build

Before creating a new build, check if an existing variant is available for that Warframe:

  • Ivara (Change the prefix to whatever warframe you're looking for)

If the build already exists, consider adding content to that article or advocating changes in the discussion tab. Otherwise, you are free to create any new build by following the steps below.

Naming

Creating a new build first requires a name. All build pages should begin with the "Build:" prefix, followed by the Warframe name, a space, hyphen, and another space. The build title then goes last.

Avoid using "Ultimate", "Perfect", or "Best" in the title. If a build is indeed that good it will surely gain traction from the community regardless of it's title. Sometimes it's easiest to distinguish a build by the weapons it uses or the specific playstyle that makes it unique.

Here are some good examples:

Build:WARFRAME - TITLE 
------------------------
Build:Hydroid - Crowd Control
Build:Excalibur - Radial Blind 
Build:Ivara - Solo Survival
Build:Loki - Redeemer Destroyer
Build:Trinity Prime - Energy Vampire

Creating

The screenshots in this section will show you the process to create a build. To actually create a new build page, do one of the following:

Address Bar

  1. Type "https://tennobattle.com/wiki/Build:Hydroid - Crowd Control" into the address bar and hit enter (Don't worry about spaces or punctuation, the server will figure it out for you).
  2. If the page doesn't exist, you can click "create this page" in the message.
  3. If the page already exists, consider adding your content to the existing page. If you believe your build to be very different consider asking the discussion page or creating a new build under a different name.

Search Method

  1. Alternatively, you can simply type your build into the search bar.
  2. Type "Build:Hydroid - Crowd Control" into the search box near your personal navigation bar and hit enter

TennoBattle - SearchBar.PNG

  1. Click the red link for your build (If there is no red link, the build already exists!).

TennoBattle - Create Build.PNG
You should now be at a text-editor. Here you can type anything you'd like to begin your build. You can always preview your work with the "Show preview" button near the bottom. The page will be created once you "Save" the page.
