Welcome to the Manual of Style! This is a very specific and detailed set of rules for how any articles and pages on the wiki are to be structured. As of March 9, 2022, all articles will be required to follow the guidelines set here. Please read through the manual carefully, whether in one sitting or on separate occasions.

Legend


In the first half of the manual, there is "Correct" and "Wrong" highlighted in their respective colors, which indicate things you are to do and not do. Anything that has "Correct" besides it, you are to follow. Anything that has "Wrong" besides it, you must not follow it.

Also throughout the entire manual, there are tabbers which showcase the code and visual style of how certain elements are to be laid out. The purpose of this is to show specific instances of how elements are to be laid out, while respecting all users' editing style, whether they use the visual editor or source editor. Here's what the tabbers look like:

This is some code that is showcased in pre-formatted text.

This is that same code, but shown in standard wikitext.


Infobox Documentation Links


In anything under 'Specific Article Structure', there are links to documentation for how to use an infobox. These are considered parts of the manual, so we highly encourage that you read them. You can jump to any of them here:


Below is a table of contents for all of the sections of the manual. You may jump to any section you'd like from it. As you scroll down the page, you may also access the table of contents from the bulleted list icon on the left-hand side of the page.

And remember: When in doubt, copy and paste from another article! ;)

Grammar

  • Always reference CP3D and the original Club Penguin in italics, like this: ''[[CP3D]]'' / ''CP3D''.
  • Do not use the British style of words in articles (e.g. "colour" to "color", "centre" to "center", etc), including in things like wikitables.
    • The only exception for this is if the official name of a subject is purposefully spelled in a British style.
  • Dates for anything must be in the format of Month Day, Year. (e.g. October 24, 2018)
  • When a subject is plural (ends in the letter "S", such as "Shoes"), please do the following: Replace "is" with "are", and replace "it" with "they".
  • Unprofessionally written sentences are not to be tolerated. (e.g. statements like "The Boiler is a great place to hang out!") The only exception is if it is a direct quote from something.
  • Try to avoid using exclamation points in article writing.
  • Do not inject your own opinion or fantasies into articles. You must only include facts.
  • When referencing dates, ensure that the date for something is in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), which is the game's timezone. For example: A party may have released December 17 in your time zone, but it may have released on December 18 in UTC. It is worth noting that UTC is referred to as "Island Standard Time" (IST) in-game. For convenience, a clock for UTC can be found here.

Naming Articles

  • For items, always name them exactly what they are called in-game. Do not attempt to make any abbreviations or modify them in any way
  • For pins, have their exact name from in-game followed by the word "Pin". Make sure it is capitalized. (e.g. Plant Pin)
  • For parties, have parties that are likely to occur more than once, or have occurred annually (e.g. Music Jam, Holiday Party) to have the year they took place in after them. (e.g. Holiday Party 2021). Parties that will likely only occur once do not need this (such as Camp Penguin or the Winter Party).
  • For stamps, have their exact name from in-game followed by the word "Stamp". Make sure it is capitalized. (e.g. Good Noodle Stamp)
  • For catalog issues, have the name of the general catalog followed by an abbreviation of the month and year they released in. (e.g. Penguin Style Jan'21)
  • For postcards, have their exact name from in-game followed by the word "Postcard". Make sure it is capitalized. (e.g. Aloha Postcard)
  • For disambiguation pages, have the desired name of the page followed by "(disambiguation)". Such as 'Halloween Parties (disambiguation)' For more details on disambiguation pages, see Disambiguation Pages.
  • For all articles, if the subject does not have an official name, give a brief description of what the subject is in the name, and place the {{Conjecture}} ambox at the top of the page.

For naming files, see File Names.
For handling a situation where two items have the same name, see When two different items have the same name.

General Article Structure

Basics

  • The first sentence in any article should almost always be something like this:
    The '''Subject''' is a [[Something]] in ''[[CP3D]]''.
    Following this sentence, try to describe the subject the best you can. Specific guidelines for this can be found under Specific Article Structure.
  • If a subject starts with the word "The", do not include the word that starts at the beginning of the article.
    Wrong: The '''The Squid Lid''' is a [[Head Item|head item]] in ''[[CP3D]]''.
    Correct: '''The Squid Lid''' is a [[Head Item|head item]] in ''[[CP3D]]''.
  • When you do a dotted list or header in the visual editor, the source code will put spaces between the text and the == and * signs. Please have it so that this gap is not visible, like so:
    Wrong:
    * This is a list item
    == This is a header ==
    Correct:
    *This is a list item
    ==This is a header==

Links

  • You can link to a page in the wiki by putting the page name between two brackets [[Like this]].
  • If a link needs to be in bold or italics, put the signs around the brackets directly.
    Wrong: [[Test|''Test'']]
    Correct: ''[[Test]]''
  • Do NOT link to other wiki pages via external url.
  • For help on linking, see here.

Infoboxes

When adding infoboxes in the visual editor, the source code will show it clumped together, with no breaks. Please make it so that the parameters are on different rows, like so:

Wrong:

{{Game|title1 = CP3D|image1 = Cp3d_logoNew.png|platform = Windows|developer = ''CP3D'' [[Staff]]|genre = MMO|date_released = October 17, 2018}}


Correct:

{{Game
|title1 = CP3D
|image1 = Cp3d_logoNew.png
|platform = Windows
|developer = ''CP3D'' [[Staff]]
|genre = MMO
|date_released = October 17, 2018}}


Also, please have the first sentence be on one new line, following the end of the infobox. This is to avoid a gap appearing between the top of the article and the text, like this:

{{Game
|title1 = CP3D
|image1 = Cp3d_logoNew.png
|platform = Windows
|developer = ''CP3D'' [[Staff]]
|genre = MMO
|date_released = October 17, 2018}}
This is the first sentence in an article.
  • In rows that are to have more than one item listed, have them separated by commas, like this: [[Beta Hat]], [[Alpha Hat]]
  • If possible, leave out the specification of the infobox title in the code. Most all infoboxes default the title to the name of the page it is on, which is what they end up being specified as anyway.

Trivia

This section of the article includes some fun facts about the subject, and is usually right before the gallery. Do not include any obvious facts, such as "the Straw Gardening Hat is a hat." Feel free to also have sub-facts listed underneath another fact, as long as it is related. You can do this with two asterisks (**). Have them ordered in separate lines, without any gaps in-between. Like this:

*The wiki was founded in 2018.
*There used to be another wiki for CP3D.
**It was garbage.

  • The wiki was founded in 2018.
  • There used to be another wiki for CP3D.
    • It was garbage.

Tables

  • ALWAYS use wikitable sortable for tables. Do NOT use article-table.
  • The general structure for tables should be this:

{|class="wikitable sortable"
!Column 1
!Column 2
!Column 3
|-
|This is
|just some
|random text
|}

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
This is just some random text

Specific guidelines for table structure are under Specific Article Structure.

Galleries

The gallery is usually right below the trivia, and more often than not the last section of an article. The gallery is defined as <gallery>, and in most cases does not require additional styling. Like this:

<gallery>
Image Name.png|This is an image caption
</gallery>


For linking a YouTube video within a page, do it like this:

<gallery>
Name of YouTube Video|This is a caption
</gallery>

Note: Do not put images and videos within the same gallery.

Article Message Boxes

Here is a list of all of the article message boxes (abbreviated as "amboxes") and when to put them on a page. All amboxes must be placed at the very top of the page, even before an infobox.

Amboxes with an orange or red border are considered "Urgent" amboxes, signifying that an article needs changed in some way, while amboxes with a blue border are normal ones, merely highlighting a specific fact about a subject.

If an article is to have both a normal and urgent ambox, please place the urgent ambox above the normal one(s).

Text highlighted in orange signifies amboxes that are temporary, and are to be removed from the page once it is edited to the point where the ambox no longer is relevant.

  • Conjecture - Put this on a page when the name of the page is not an official name for the subject, and is only a fan-made description of the subject.
  • Construction - To be placed usually right after an article has been made, and is still undergoing development. It is to be removed once the page appears to be mostly completed.
  • CustomItem - To only be used on item articles in which the subject is an item that did not exist in the original Club Penguin.
  • MascotItem - To only be used on item articles in which the subject is an item worn by a mascot.
  • MissingImage - To be used on pages that are missing essential images from either the gallery or anywhere else on the page.
  • Outdated - To be used when information/images on a page is out of date, and needs edited in some way to contain up-to-date information
  • Rare - To only be used on item articles in which the subject is an item that classifies as "rare". The guidelines for an item being considered rare are:
    • Items that have not been available for 2 years or more;
    • Items that were only available for 5 days or less;
    • Items that were only given to a limited number of players.
  • Spoilers - To be used when a page contains information about a hidden aspect of the game, such as the location of hidden objects in scavenger hunts. (Note: In the case of scavenger hunts, the ambox is to be removed once the hunt has ended.)
  • Stub - To be used on a page when the content is minimal, and needs expanded upon.
  • Unreleased - To be used on a page where the subject is something that was never released in the game.

Disambiguation Pages

Disambiguation pages are pages that list articles that relate to one topic, or are similar in wording, such as Halloween Parties or Shirts.

When making a disambiguation page, please be sure that whatever you name the page ends in "(disambiguation)". Then, include the {{Disambig}} template at the very top of the page. After this, state the subject topic, and what it is about. End the description with the following: "Were you looking for..." From there, put a bulleted list that lists all of the articles that relate to the topic.

You will want to edit each article that the disambiguation page lists to link to it. You can do this with the {{DisambigMessage}} template. It must be placed after any amboxes, but before an infobox. For example:

{{MissingImage}}
{{DisambigMessage}}
{{Party
...


There is a parameter to be used with this template. In the visual editor, when you type out the template name, select "1" in the list of options, and input the name of the page you're linking to. In the source editor, type the following: {{DisambigMessage|Name of page (disambiguation)}}

Tabbers

Tabbers are elements you can use for separating stuff into different sections; useful for large elements that take up a lot of space. You can add as many sections to a tabber as you'd like. This is how tabbers are to be structured:

<tabber>Section 1=
This is the code or text that will be under Section 1!
|-|Section 2=
This is the code or text that will be under Section 2!
|-|Section 3=
This is the code or text that will be under Section 3!
</tabber>

Due to issues with wikitext, a visual of this tabber example cannot be displayed.

Files/Images

  • If you are screenshotting a picture in-game for rooms, catalogs, etc, please do your best to ensure that the image is as high quality as possible. Things you can do:
    • Set your game quality settings to highest.
    • Be in fullscreen.
  • When taking a screenshot of a room, please try to be in the first-person viewing perspective. This way your penguin is not visible. If you cannot find a good angle whilst in first-person, you may take a standard screenshot with your penguin visible, and do your best to photoshop the penguin out.
  • When taking a screenshot of an item on a player card, here are some things to keep in mind:
    • When taking the screenshot, have your penguin be Black. If the item you are taking a picture with does not look good in that color, try Blue.
    • It is highly recommended to crop the image to include not just your penguin, but the surrounding dark blue border to maintain its quality. If you are taking a screenshot of a background or pin specifically, the image MUST be exactly around the edge of the border, and must not exclude any part of the background of the crop.
  • When taking a screenshot of a pin's location, please be as close to the pin as possible, while also clearly showing the general area of the pin. You MUST be in first-person view.
  • For images in general, please have it be in the png format when possible.
  • For audio files, you can use most any audio format, although ogg or mp3 are preferred.

File Names

Note: For any file name, please exclude any non-alphabetical characters, such as apostrophes or dashes.

Items

Please have the names for item images be ordered like this: Name of item followed by "Icon" or "PlayerCard", depending on what the image is. Also, do not include any spaces. Like this: BlueSuperheroMaskPlayerCard.png

If you are uploading the design for a background, do NOT include "Icon" in the file name. Like this: ArcadeBackground.png

If an icon of an item has at some point in time been updated to a newer look, do the following: Move the current icon image to ItemNameIconOld.png, then upload the new icon under the former name (ItemNameIcon.png). Note: Do not actually include "ItemName" in the file; replace it with the subject item's actual name.

Pin Locations

For these types of images, simply have the name of the pin followed by the word "Location". Like this: HockeyStickPinLocation.png

Rooms

For images of rooms in their normal design, have the room name followed by the month/day it was updated to that design. For example: Mine Shack Nov15.png

For images of rooms decorated in parties, have it structured like this: Name of the party, followed by the name of the room. Like this: Music Jam 2021 Beach.png

For images of rooms during party construction, have it structured like this: Name of the party, followed by the word "Construction", followed by the name of the room. Like this: Festival of Flight Construction Beacon.png

Stamps

For stamps, simply have the name of the stamp followed by the word "Stamp", without any spaces. Like this: GoingPlacesStamp.png

Postcards

Same thing as stamps. Just have the name of the postcard followed by the word "Postcard", without any spaces. Like this: WelcometoCP3DPostcard.png

Catalogs

For catalog covers, put the general name of the catalog, followed by the issue (abbreviation of the month and year it released), all without spaces. Like this: PenguinStyleAug21.png

For images of inside pages of catalogs, have it structured like this: Abbreviated form of the catalog name, followed by the issue, and the letter "P" followed by the page number, all separated by spaces. Like this:
PS Oct21 P2.png BI Nov21 P6.png

Newspaper

For The Penguin Times (aka the newspaper) images, structure it like this: "TPT", followed by the issue number, and the page number, separated by spaces. Like this: TPT 18 Page 3.png

Soundtrack

Have the name of audio files be as follows: 'Music_', following by the name of the track, or if a track does not have a given name, state something relating to the track, such as the room where the music plays. Like this:
Music_BoxDimension.ogg Music_ParksCanada.mp3

Specific Article Structure

These sections explain how to specifically structure the most common types of articles on the wiki.

Items

The structure for item articles should be as follows.
NOTE: Documentation for how to use the {{Item}} infobox can be found here.

  1. {{Item}} Infobox at the top of the page, followed by main description of the item. Example: The '''Item Name''' is a [[Item Category]] in ''[[CP3D]]''. It costs (coin amount) [[coins]] in the [[Catalog Name]] catalog.
    In the case of a free item in a party, do it like this: The '''Item Name''' is a [[Item Category]] in ''[[CP3D]]''. It could be obtained for free at the [[Room]] during the [[Party]].
    Proper example with filled in info: The '''Blue Superhero Mask''' is a [[Face Item|face item]] in ''[[CP3D]]''. It costs 100 [[coins]] in the [[Costume Trunk]] catalog.

  2. Heading titled History. Under this, there is a table showcasing the history of the item's availability. The table should look something like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Catalog
    !Available From
    !Available Until
    |-
    |[[Penguin Style]]
    |October 17, 2018
    |September 5, 2019
    |}

    Catalog Available From Available Until
    Penguin Style October 17, 2018 September 5, 2019


    If an item became available in the same location more than once in its history (in this case, the Penguin Style), please use rowspan=[number of times it was available in that location], like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Catalog
    !Available From
    !Available Until
    |-
    |rowspan=2|[[Penguin Style]]
    |October 17, 2018
    |September 5, 2019
    |-
    |October 14, 2019
    |February 23, 2020
    |}
    

    Catalog Available From Available Until
    Penguin Style October 17, 2018 September 5, 2019
    October 14, 2019 February 23, 2020


    If the item was a free item during a party, have it like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Party
    !Location
    !Available From
    !Available Until
    |-
    |[[Music Jam 2021]]
    |[[Iceberg]]
    |July 1, 2021
    |July 13, 2021
    |}
    

    Party Location Available From Available Until
    Music Jam 2021 Iceberg July 1, 2021 July 13, 2021


    If the subject item is still able to be obtained as of the time of writing, put "Still Available" under the 'Available Until' column (make sure that it is in the correct row; if there are more than two rows in the table).


  3. Heading titled Appearances. This is similar to the Trivia section, however this specifically lists anywhere the item appeared in-game. For example: *It appeared in issue 12 of The Penguin Times.
    If the item has no known appearances, do not include this section.

  4. Heading titled Trivia. This is where to include some fun facts, and should follow the guidelines for the trivia section listed above. Some common trivia facts for items are:
    *It goes with the [[Item Name]].
    or
    *A similar item is the [[Item Name]].
    Otherwise, if there is no trivia to list about the item, do not include this section.

  5. Heading titled Gallery. On most item articles, the gallery should be like this:
    ==Gallery==
    <gallery>
    ItemNamePlayerCard.png|On a [[Player Card]]
    </gallery>
    If there is another image you feel is relevant to the item, add it to the gallery after the player card image.
    If the subject item is a furniture item or an igloo, do not include the gallery.

Pins

Articles for pins are being classified under items, since they are so similar but require a few changes.

  • Following the first sentence, being The '''Pin Name''' is a [[Pins|pin]] in ''[[CP3D]]''., have the following sentence be: It was hidden at the [[Room]]. Replace "Room" with the room the pin was hidden in.
  • In the Gallery, there are to be 2 mandatory images. First is the standard Player Card image, but then after that, an image of the exact location of the pin. The caption for the image should be as follows: "The location of the Pin Name at the Room." In the end, the gallery should look something like this:
==Gallery==
<gallery>
PinNamePlayerCard.png|On a [[Player Card]]
PinNameLocation.png|The location of the [[Pin Name]] at the [[Room]]
</gallery>

NOTE: This structure of pin articles only applies to hidden pins. If the subject pin was not hidden somewhere around the island, treat it like a normal item article.

When two different items have the same name

In the predicament that two items of different types have the same general name, there are a few things you should do.

First, contact a member of wiki staff to rename a page, if you are unable to do so yourself. On the page that already has the name of the new article to be created, rename it to the type of item that it is inside parentheses, depending on the type of item that it is. Then, name the new article the same thing with the type of item it is.

For example, in the case of the 'Microphone' clothing and furniture items, the furniture item existed first. Therefore, it had to be moved from 'Microphone' to 'Microphone (furniture)'. From there, the clothing item had to be named 'Microphone (clothing)'.

Next, on both articles, put an indented line of text at the top of the article (before the infobox, but after any amboxes). An indent can be made on text by putting a colon behind it :Like this. The text is to say in italics: :''Were you looking for [[Item Name (type)|the [item type] of the same name]]?'' So for example, in the case of the microphone items, here's what the two articles are to say:
Clothing: '':Were you looking for [[Microphone (furniture)|the furniture item of the same name]]?''
Furniture: '':Were you looking for [[Microphone (clothing)|the clothing item of the same name]]?''

Finally, ensure that on the articles themselves, the respective item is still referred to by its base name, excluding (clothing), (furniture), or whatever it is. This is where in the infobox of each article, you will need to specify title1 as the base name.

Now, the examples given are for one of several possible cases. If you are confused on what you should do in other cases, contact a member of staff for help.

Parties

The structure for articles about parties/events should be as follows.
NOTE: Documentation for how to use the {{Party}} infobox can be found here.

  1. {{Party}} infobox at the top of the page, followed by the starting sentence. It should go like this: The '''Party Name''' was a [[Parties|party]] in ''[[CP3D]]''. It started on Month Day, Year, and ended on Month Day, Year. Following this sentence, give a paragraph describing the party. Things like what the party was about, what the decorations were like, what mascots visited, etc.

  2. Header titled Free Items. Under here, put a table listing the free items in the party. The table should be 3 columns, each titled 'Icon', 'Item', and 'Location'. It should look something like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Icon
    !Item
    !Location
    |-
    |[[File:GhostCostumeIcon.png|center|thumb|50x50px]]
    |[[Ghost Costume]]
    |[[Haunted House]]
    |}

    Icon Item Location
    GhostCostumeIcon.png
    Ghost Costume Haunted House

    If the party had a party exclusive catalog, put a sentence in italics directly above the table stating: "For items sold at the [room], see [catalog name]." Like this: ''For items sold at the [[Snow Forts]], see [[Shirts Rock Catalog]].''
    If there was more than one party catalog during an event, put another sentence exactly like it following the previous one.


  3. Header titled Party Emoticons (yes, please link the Emoticons page). Under here, put a table listing the exclusive emoticons available during the party. The table is somewhat different, it should look something like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    |[[File:EmoticonName.png|50px|center]]
    |[[File:EmoticonName.png|50px|center]]
    |[[File:EmoticonName.png|50px|center]]
    |-
    |Name of emoticon 1
    |Name of emoticon 2
    |Name of emoticon 3
    |}

    Name of emoticon 1 Name of emoticon 2 Name of emoticon 3

    It is worth noting that emoticons are not usually given official names. Therefore, you will need to determine your own name for emoticons based on the appearance of the emoticon.
    If the subject party had no emoticons, do not include this section.


  4. Header titled Stamps. Under here, put a table listing the stamps that were available during the party. The table should look something like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Stamp
    !Name
    !Description
    |-
    |[[File:ExampleStamp.png|center|thumb|90x84px]]
    |[[Example Stamp]]
    |This is the description of the stamp (only use the official description from in-game)
    |}

    Stamp Name Description
    Example Stamp This is the description of the stamp (only use the official description from in-game)

    If the party had no stamps to collect, do not include this section.


  5. Header titled Trivia. This is where to include some fun facts, and should follow the guidelines for the trivia section listed above. You can include various different things here. However, please be sure to only list definite facts and not things based on speculation. If there is no trivia to list about the party, do not include this section.

  6. Header titled Gallery. This is where all of the pictures will be. Usually, the two sub-headings needed for this section are Rooms and Other. Under 'Rooms' is where you are to place all of the images of every decorated room in a party. It should look something like this:
    <gallery>
    Party Name Room Name.png|[[Room Name]]
    ...


    In 'Other', you may place things like party teasers. If there is nothing to insert, do not include this sub-heading.


  7. Header titled Videos. This is to go under the gallery, and contains videos relating to the party/event. If the subject does not have a video relating to it, do not include this section.

  8. At the very bottom of the article (but before the category links), include the {{Parties}} navbox.

Stamps

NOTE: Documentation for how to use the {{Stamp}} infobox can be found here.

  1. Just after the {{Stamp}} infobox at the top of the page, start out with: The '''Stamp Name''' is a [difficulty] difficulty stamp in ''[[CP3D]]''.
    Proper example with filled in info: The '''Rockhopper Stamp''' is a medium difficulty stamp in ''[[CP3D]]''.
    Follow this up with a brief explanation of how to obtain the stamp.

  2. After this, heading titled History. Here, put a table showcasing the different times the stamp could be available. This is not a requirement for all stamps; mainly event stamps need it.

  3. At the very bottom of the article (but before the category links), include the {{EventStamps}}, {{GameStamps}}, or {{ActivityStamps}} navboxes, depending on the type of stamp that it is.

Catalogs

NOTE: Documentation for how to use the {{Catalog}} infobox can be found here.

  1. Just after the {{Catalog}} infobox at the top of the page, start out with: The '''Page Name''' is the [edition number] edition of the [[Catalog]] catalog. It was released on [catalog release date] and expired on [catalog expiration date].

    Proper example with filled in info (this is from a Penguin Style): The '''Penguin Style May'20''' is the 13th edition of the [[Penguin Style]] catalog. It was released on May 10, 2020 and expired on June 28, 2020.

  2. After this, header titled Trivia. Put any fun facts that may be related to the catalog. Trivia facts are often uncommon for most catalogs, so if there is no trivia to give about the catalog, do not include this section.

  3. Header titled Items. This is the main meat of the article, and will show various tables of the different items that were available in the catalog. Please order the items in each table alphabetically.

    IMPORTANT: ONLY include the NEW items that were available for that catalog's issue, NOT items that were in previous issues.

    There must be sub-headers in which the tables are to be categorized by item category.
    For clothing catalogs, The possible sub-headers you can use are:
    • Head Items
    • Face Items
    • Neck Items
    • Body Items
    • Hand Items
    • Feet Items
    • Miscellaneous Items (a miscellaneous item has never been available in a catalog, so including this is unlikely.)
    • Backgrounds
    For furniture catalogs, The possible sub-headers you can use are:
    • Floor Furniture
    • Wall Furniture
    For igloo catalogs, The possible sub-headers you can use are:
    • Flooring
    • Igloos
    Be sure to list the sub-headers in the order that they were given.

    Here is how the tables are to be structured. 4 columns: 'Icon', where you put an item's icon image, 'Item', the name of an item, 'Cost', where you put the cost of an item, and 'Hidden?', where you put "Yes" or "No", depending on whether or not the item was hidden.

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Icon
    !Item
    !Cost

  4. At the very bottom of the article (but before the category links), include a navbox for the issues of a catalog, depending on what the catalog is. Here are the possible navboxes you can use (only use ONE of these):
    • {{PenguinStyle}} (for Penguin Style catalogs)
    • {{SnowAndSports}} (for Snow and Sports catalogs)
    • {{BetterIgloos}} (for Better Igloos catalogs)
    • {{IglooUpgrades}} (for Igloo Upgrades catalogs)

Postcards

NOTE: Postcards also use the {{Item}} infobox. Documentation can be found here.

  1. {{Item}} Infobox at the top of the page, followed by main description of the postcard. Start this out with: The '''Postcard Name''' is a [[Postcards|postcard]] in ''[[CP3D]]''.
    If the postcard could be sent from the Postcard Catalog, the following sentence is to be: It can be sent for 10 [[coins]].
    If the postcard could be obtained from anywhere else, give a brief description of where the postcard comes from. For example, in the case of the Card-Jitsu Black Belt Postcard: It can be obtained by earning the [[Black Ninja Belt]] in [[Card-Jitsu]].

  2. Heading titled History. Under this, there is a table showcasing the history of the postcard's availability. If the postcard is from the Postcard Catalog, the table should look something like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Catalog
    !Available From
    !Available Until
    |-
    |[[Postcard Catalog]]
    |October 17, 2018
    |September 5, 2019
    |}

    Catalog Available From Available Until
    Postcard Catalog October 17, 2018 September 5, 2019


    If the postcard is obtained from anywhere else, the table should be like this:

    {|class="wikitable sortable"
    !Location
    !Available From
    !Available Until
    |-
    |[[Card-Jitsu]]
    |December 20, 2020
    |''Still Available''
    |}

    Location Available From Available Until
    Card-Jitsu December 20, 2020 Still Available


  3. Heading titled Trivia. Put any fun facts about the postcard here. If there is no trivia to put, do not include this section.

Categories

Here are some guidelines for what articles to classify under some categories.

  • For anything that was released in the game within a particular year, put the category for that year under it. (e.g, something released in 2021 needs the 2021 category.)
    • For item articles in particular: If an item was released in one year, and by the next year is still available, do NOT give it the category for the new year. (e.g, if something was released in 2020 and is still available as of 2021, it does not need the 2021 category and only the 2020 category.) The only exception is if the item becomes unavailable then gets re-released in the new year.
  • All rooms need the Locations category.
    • If the subject is a room that could only be accessed during a party, give it the Party Rooms category.
  • Parties need the Parties category.
  • All items need the Items category.
    • For clothing: Also give it the category corresponding with the type of item. (e.g. if an item is a head item, give it the Head Items category.
    • For furniture: Same thing. All furniture need the Furniture category. If a furniture is a floor furniture, give it the Floor Furniture category as well. If it is a wall furniture, give it the Wall Furniture category.
  • If an item is free and costs 0 coins, give it the Free Items category. It is worth noting that this is not necessarily restricted to free items in parties.
  • All stamps need the Stamps category. For any given stamp, give them categories corresponding to their type and difficulty. (e.g, Astro5 Max Stamp gets the Easy Stamps and Game Stamps categories.
    • For game stamps: Give it the category of stamps for a particular minigame (e.g, if the subject is a stamp for Pizzatron 3000, then it needs the Pizzatron 3000 Stamps category.)
  • All catalogs need the Catalogs category.
  • All postcards need the Postcards category.
