Romanization Standards[edit]

Particles are to be romanized as they are pronounced in normal speech.

  • は = wa
  • を = o
  • へ = e

Words ending in ん have it connected to the previous word. Separate particles are kept separate, unless the meaning would be changed.

  • 行くんだよ = ikun da yo

Katakana is capitalized, and written as pronounced, not as the translated word if non-Japanese.

  • ロマンス = ROMANSU
  • ページ = PEEJI
  • キミ = KIMI

Japanese punctuation is replaced with English counterparts.

  • 。 = .
  • 。。。 = ... (This is three separate . and not the combined ellipsis character.)
  • () = ()
  • 「」 = ""
  • !? = !?
  • 、 = ,
  • 〜 = ~
  • 〜〜 = ~ (Only use one ~ even when Japanese has more.)
  • ー = - (EXCEPT when it is used as part of katakana.)
  • ーー = --
  • ーーー = -- (Only use up to two - even when Japanese has more.)

If pronunciation is purposely changed from what's written (sometimes happens in song lyrics), write what is said.

  • ちゃんと胸(ココ)にある = chanto KOKO ni aru

English or anything else written in Latin script is kept as-is, save for switching from full-width letters and characters.

  • HI! This is an example sentence. = HI! This is an example sentence.

Uploading Files[edit]

You can upload files several ways. Please remember to check that the file does not already exist before you upload it.

  1. The Upload File page allows you to add one file at a time.
  2. While you are editing any page, you can drag+drop multiple files at once into the editor. These can then be renamed and inserted into the page. If you add files while editing a Category, the files can be added to that category. Otherwise, you will have to edit the File page to add it to a category.
  3. If a page links to a file that does not yet exist, it will show as a red hyperlink. Clicking on the hyperlink will take you to the Upload File page with the file name already filled in. There is a list of Wanted Files as well as Pages with broken file links.

png is the preferred file format, as is a single + for a bloomed card.

Card Files[edit]

The format for card file names is (cardname) firstname attribute rarity type

Examples:

We already have access to high quality versions of most of the files except for SSR raws (no text covering the image). If you would like to help with uploading the HQ versions we have, please contact the mods on Discord.

Card Icons[edit]

The format for card icons is (cardname) firstname lastname attribute rarity Icon bloomed/unbloomed

If the card comes prebloomed, upload it as ++ Bloomed.

Banners and Promotional Images[edit]

The format for limited scouts is scoutname gacha

The format for event banners is scoutname event banner

The format for event story tabs is Event Story eventname

The format for play posters is playname Poster

Categories[edit]

Files should be categorised into the following categories:

Pages should be categorised into the following categories:


Translator Notes[edit]

To add a translator note, wrap your note with <ref></ref> tags beside the text you want to add a note to. This will create a footnote at the bottom of the page. If adding a note, please also add:

==Notes==
<references/>

at the bottom of the page, above any navigation boxes or translation credits.

Translator Credit[edit]

Add this to the bottom of the story page:

{{Translator|name=|link=}}
name should be self-explanatory. Use the link field for adding links to original translations if necessary.
link=[external link]

If there is a section for translation notes, this should go BELOW that. Refer to Translator Notes for how to add a note.

Pages[edit]

Story Pages[edit]

More information is forthcoming. For now if unsure about anything, please come join us on the A3! Wiki Discord and check the pinned notes in the wiki-discussion channel. Questions are very welcome.

Page Titles[edit]

Page Formatting[edit]

Page Top[edit]

The code at the top of each story page should look like this:

<table class="storytable">
<caption>Boy Alice in Wonderland<br>Episode 2</caption>
{{Story Nav|returnto=[[Event Story]]|previous=Boy Alice in Wonderland/Episode 2|next=Boy Alice in Wonderland/Episode 4}}
<tr>
<td colspan=3>
<table class="storybodytable">
  • returnto= Link back to the main page for the type of story it is. In the above example, it's an event story, so it should go back to [[Event Story]]. If it's a backstage, then it should be [[Backstage Story]], etc.
  • next= Name of the next episode/chapter. If nothing, leave blank.
  • previous= Name of the previous episode/chapter. If nothing, leave blank.

Page Dialogue[edit]

All the story and dialogue should be pasted after <table class="storybodytable">.

To make formatting the story easier, we now have two options to help with converting lines into Wiki format:

Both these options may need some more tweaking to suit the situation. Here are some existing templates for lines that you can use:

  • Template:Line — A blank line ({{Line}}) should be used where a break in action/fade to black occurs.
  • Template:Line/Image — If a CG or a significant image appears, use this template to add the file. If the image appears at the same time as a piece of dialogue in the game, the image should be placed before the dialogue on the story page. See the template link for more detailed information.
  • Template:Line/LIME — Use where a LIME message/conversation appears onscreen in the game. Template page contains more information.

Page Bottom[edit]

After the lines, at the bottom of the page, you will need to close the tags that we created at the top of the page:

</table>
</td>
</tr>
{{Story Nav|returnto=[[Event Story]]|previous=Boy Alice in Wonderland/Episode 2|next=Boy Alice in Wonderland/Episode 4}}
</table>

{{Translator|name=Chuusagi}}

You can copy/paste what you entered for the {{Story Nav}} section directly into the bottom. It should be the same at the top and bottom of the page.

If you created any Notes (see above) this should go directly after the closing table tag (</table>):

==Notes==
<references/>

Translator credit goes at the very bottom of the page. See above (Translator Credit) if more information is needed.

Lyric Pages[edit]

If possible, refer to the track lists on the Music page and follow the link for the appropriate song you wish to create a page for.

The format for lyric page titles is Music/Song Title

You should look at SICK SICK SICK for a "base" template for the layout of the lyric pages.

Templates will be created (eventually) to simplify the format, but currently:

  • Lyrics within lyric boxes should be wrapped in <poem></poem> tags which will automatically format the lyrics inside with linebreaks and verse breaks for you.
  • Where the lyricbox classes show something like class="wikitable a3table masumitable" you can change the "masumi" part with the appropriate character or troupe name.
  • Each lyric page should have an infobox. See Template:Music Infobox for detailed info on how to add one.
