Thank you for deciding to contribute to the Elements the Game Wiki! Once you've created an account, you can begin editing the Wiki.

See the MediaWiki editing documentation for information on general editing. Our Wiki has a number of unique features, which you can learn about below.

Elemental Icons

The same :element syntax as used on the forum is used on the Wiki. For example, :aether becomes .

Card Images

The Card Tag

Maybe the easiest way to add a card image to an article is using the following syntax:

<card>Card Name</card>

Note that if the card is upgraded the card name must be followed by 'Upgraded' if it is the same as the non-upgraded version's name.

The following attributes can be added:

float: Optional. This can be either none (default), left or right. The image will be floated to the left or the right.

link: Optional. If this is set, the image will be linked. Set this to 'auto' to have it link to the card article's page. Set it to something else and it will link to the article provided (for example, 'Aether') or will link to an external location if the link is external (for example, 'http://elementscommunity.org/forum/').

Examples:

<card>Quantum Pillar</card>

<card float="right">Quantum Pillar</card>

<card link="auto">Quantum Pillar</card>

The Single Card Template

Though the <card></card> tag is applicable in most cases, it has some limitations:

  • It is unable to display some cards (eg. Schrödinger's Cat)
  • It is unable to accept wiki parameters and functions so you cannot use it in templates
  • When link="auto" is used for an upgraded card, the resulting link might reference a non-existing page or a redirection instead of the card article

In these cases you might want to use the Single Card template. Please note that this template always expects for the basic card name. To link an upgraded card use the basic card name with a '^' prefix.

Example:

{{Single Card|Quantum Pillar}} vs. {{Single Card|^Quantum Pillar}}

Result:

Quantum Pillar vs. Quantum Tower

Displaying Decks

The Deck Tag

To add a deck to an article as a single image (just like in the forums), use the following syntax:

<deck>Deck Code</deck>

There is an optional mark attribute which will set the mark if a mark code isn't provided.

Example:

<deck>6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj</deck>

Result:

6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj

The Deck Template

In the wiki it is possible to add interactive decks to the articles by the Deck Template. Interactivity means that every card and the deck mark act as links, and pointing to a card by the mouse displays the card name.

Example:

{{Deck|6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj}}

Result:

6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj

External Images

To embed an external image, simply paste the image URL. To hyperlink the image, you can use the hyperlink syntax.

Example:

http://elementscommunity.org/images/Art/Quantum_Pillar.jpg

Quantum_Pillar.jpg

[http://elementscommunity.org/forum/ http://elementscommunity.org/images/Art/Quantum_Pillar.jpg]

Quantum_Pillar.jpg

Card Pairs

To display cards in pairs, use the Card template.

Example:

{{Card|Quantum Pillar}}

Result:

Quantum Pillar
