ForumStyleguide plz?


Hey, I'm just wondering about some aspects of how an article should be set up. Since I haven't found a style guide yet, I'll post my questions here as they come

* How is the "First appearance"-field in the Character infobox to be used? In Fast Headcrab it states the first appearance in both Half-Life 2 and Episode One (not Two, though..), and furthermore there is an Appearances-section explaining that the "first appearance" was in Half-Life 2. This is a rather confusing approach IMO. Should we decide upon one way to do this? Also, I tried another strategy in Standard Headcrab. --UserLigemeget|ligemeget 0802, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
As I understand it, first appearance = the game and chapter in which the creature makes it's ''very first'' appearance. I feel this is the best way as listing it's first appearance ''in each game'' it appears in rapidly becomes cumbersome and it's a lot of work for comparatively little gain.

So this is how I'd fill in the Headcrab's first appearance field.

''Half-Life'', Chapter Three
Unforeseen Consequences

So it looks like this ''Half-Life'', Chapter Three
Unforeseen Consequences

Once it's up to scratch I'll look into adding a link to it somewhere more visible. --UserMattyDienhoff|MattyDienhoff 1730, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
