Description

This template produces a pre-formatted citation code for information taken from a game that follows the Destiny Wiki recognized citation format. This template should always be used when sourcing a game.

Please note this template is already offered on the editor through the reference feature - accessed through one of the following buttons on the editor: Reference Button Reference Button Source Mode Reference Button Visual Mode

Syntax

To use this template, simply copy and paste the following code, between two ref tags (<ref>{{RefGame|<...>}}</ref>), after the section of information taken from a specified game:

{{RefGame
|developer=
|year=
|game=
|edition=
|mission=
|console=
|publisher=
|grimoire=
}}
  • Editors and then filling out the appropriate fields by placing the correct information after each tag.
    • Developer → Game developer
    • Year → Year of game release
    • Game → Title of game
    • Edition → Edition of game (e.g. Standard, limited, game of the year, platinum, etc.)
    • Mission → Mission or quest name
    • Console → Console edition of game (e.g. Xbox 360, PS3, or PC)
    • Publisher → Publisher of game (e.g. Activision)
  • Game name and mission name are compulsory fields, meaning that they must be filled out in order for the reference to work.
  • If an editor does not know a game's developer, edition, or publisher, they may leave the appropriate fields empty. However the editor must warn an administrator that the information is missing so it can be rectified at a later date.
  • Editors should always try to fill out as many fields as possible, and should always use this template when referencing a game.

Demonstration

Placing the following code into the editor:

... as seen in Destiny.<ref name="Destiny Xbox 360">{{RefGame
|developer=Bungie
|year=2013
|game=Destiny
|edition=Standard
|mission=A Guardian Rises
|console=Xbox 360
|publisher=Activision
}}</ref>

Will produce the following in the article text:

... as seen in Destiny.[1]

And will produce the following in the source/reference list at the bottom of the article:

  1. Bungie (2013) Destiny: Standard, A Guardian Rises. Xbox 360, Activision.
