Setting: Something

In an effort to make all characters of the wiki as uniformly categorized as possible with minimal effort from the staff, the template also accepts a "Setting" value. Based on this value it will automatically proceed to add the proper setting category to the character page. Valid values are; Angelic Sins, Blazing Umbra, and Embers of Soteria note also that the abbreviations of AS, BU, and EoS are not used here. The additional special value of Cross Setting may be used, specifically, for those characters who have admin approval for the same character to pass between settings. This is not to be confused with character variants, where a character has multiple versions that are distinct characters.

The value of "Status" will determine if the page is auto-categorized. Valid values are:

  • Approved
  • Unapproved
  • Deceased
  • Dead
  • Missing
  • Denied
  • Banned
  • NPC
  • Non-Player Character

There is clearly some overlap (such as Deceased, Dead, and Missing all go to the same category). Any other value will result in no auto-categories being assigned. The value Approved or no value assigned at all, will automatically set categories for race and organization.

In addition the wiki will now attempt to automatically categorize characters based on the player they belong to. General wiki policy is that if a player has 4 or more characters, their characters get put into a category specific to that user. This does require some work on the part of Staff or players. Once the Category Page is created (such as Category:Played by Cyclops), then the template should automatically assign the category. If it does not exist, it will automatically put them just in the Category:People listing. Also, along these same lines, if the player name given has a User Page such as User:Cyclops, it will be automatically linked on the wiki to the character in question.
