Notes (main section)[edit]

Below is the original article, before i made a complete revision. It has more specific categories, but lacks organization. If you for some reason want to look at it, feel free to read the stuff below. WitchDoctor (talk) 05:46, 26 November 2013 (CET)

Diablo II classes[edit]

D2 classes usually have a name that is descriptive of the character of that class, not of the people. Amazons are really called something else, as is Necromancers and Paladins. Separate the main lore in this way by adding a short Background on the class, and link to the actual name of the people/faction article, and have history and other advanced things there. --Leord 13:27, 20 January 2009 (CET)

==Article pre-revison - see if you want to check out some of the less used categories!

The structure of DiabloWiki is important, and when making new articles, or uploading images, make sure that you add it to the right categories. You might also want to make sure that you are using the right boilerplate if one is available.


The structure of the category system in DiabloWiki is important to be able to easily sort and navigate through articles. It's vital to make sure that your articles end up in the right category, and that your categories are sorted in to the right structure. As any article or category can belong to any article or category, some of these can exist in multiple places. That is fine, as long as the structure in itself is logical.

"(*)" Means that a category appears in more than one other superior category.

Main Category - Category:Root[edit]

All categories should be added to different categories and eventually they should all link through to Category:Root, the main category.

Content Category - Category:Content[edit]

All articles with content should be added to Category:Content, the main category for content. This is the "main" category of articles in the wiki, which is supposed to be about content. Other categories are used to help provide content efficiently.

Basics - Category:Basics[edit]

Gameplay - Category:Gameplay[edit]

    • Category:Locations - In-game and lore locations. It can be anything from "Tristram" to "The Tree of Infuss". Used only for categories. (*)

Lore - Category:Lore[edit]

Guides - Category:Guides[edit]

  • Category:Guides - User-made guides for the Wiki. Guides might end up in multiple categories.

Community - Category:Community[edit]

Games - Category:Games[edit]

Sources - Category:Sources[edit]

  • Category:Sources - All types of Diablo information sources. Games, books, graphic novels, or similar products should be added to Category:Sources, the main sources category.

DiabloWiki - Category:DiabloWiki[edit]

All articles used by DiabloWiki or its contributors should be added to Category:DiabloWiki, the main DiabloWiki category.

Images - Category:Images[edit]

All image categories should be added to Category:Images, the main image category.

Some of these categories might go unused for a long time, but if the need arises, use these.

Final Words[edit]

Adding a few final words here.
