This page will give you some help with editing the Jak and Daxter Technical Wiki, while also introducing you to some of our rules and guidelines.

Rules

While some rules are obvious, we still want to clarify what is and isn't allowed here. Some rules aren't written down, but by using common sense you can avoid breaking the unwritten rules.

Here are our written rules:

  1. Do not put stolen content into our wiki!
  2. Do not make wrong edits to pages intentionally! This means that any kind of vandalism is not allowed.
  3. Use talk pages properly! Each time you want to edit the talk page you will see a link to the talk page help. You can only break this rule by not reading that page.
  4. The official language of the wiki is English.
  5. Do not harass other users in any way, give everyone respect!

Also, keep in mind that...

  • We have zero tolerance towards vandalism, it will get you banned forever.
  • Breaking other rules might result in a warning, but repeat offenses will result in more severe punishments.
  • The Staff reserves the right to ban anyone without explanation. This mostly applies to people who have a bad history (well-known wiki vandal, etc...).
  • The rules can be changed at any time, and by using our wiki you agree that you have read and accepted the rules.

Naming Style

We want to have a consisent naming style accross the wiki. In order to achieve this, we have established the following rules:

  • Names of companies, games, and similar things should be written like this: PlayStation 4 (''PlayStation 4'', see the two apostrophe characters at both ends)
  • The four main games of the Jak and Daxter series have their own templates for their names, you should use them: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy ({{TPL}}), Jak II ({{J2}}), Jak 3 ({{J3}}), Jak X: Combat Racing ({{JX}})
  • The series itself should be written in the following way: Jak and Daxter series (''Jak and Daxter'' series)
  • When you want to write Jak and Daxter games, use the same rules as for the series.
