  • Each "field" (the line of text that starts with a pipe | and ends with an equals signs =) represents one section of the game page template. Fill in each section with information about your game. An explanation of what each field represents can be found on this Help page (for speakers, refer to this page).

Step 5 (optional): Upload images[edit source]

  • If you'd like to add images to your article, you can do so by uploading them using the button on the Source Editor toolbar, or by dragging them into the editing window. Make sure to name your files so that it is obvious which game the image is depicting.
