Intro Page Manual

From Discord Servers
Jump to: navigation, search

The Intro Page Manual, as known as IPM, is a recommended guide for writing an intro page for your bot, or your server.

This is only a suggestion. If you wish to write your page in another way, it's OK. This manual is for reference only and is not supposed to be a rule.

Before writing...

Make sure your server/bot is approved and on the list!

For Servers

  • Think about what's your server theme.
  • Think about any feature of your server.
  • 'Bots we have' is not a feature of a server.

For Bots

  • Think about why your bot is different from others.
  • Read Help:Formatting.
  • Discuss with your partners, if you have. (Optional)

Writing it

A one-sentence Intro (Code)

Same as in Wikipedia, this sentence is used for people to know what the hell you are talking about.

'''(Server Name/Bot name)''' is a Discord server/bot owned by (Username#Tag).

Example: 0131 Network is a Discord server owned by austinhuang#1076.

Basic Info (Code)

Because we have a category system (mention later), people may only access this page without accessing the server list. So these info are needed.

For Servers

== Basic Info ==
*'''Server Name:'''(Server Name)
*'''Theme:'''(Same as the themes you wrote on the list)
*'''Invite Link:''' [(A permanent join link) Join]

For Bots

== Basic Info ==
*'''Bot Name:'''(Bot Name)
*'''Features:'''(Same as the features you wrote on the list)
*[(A permanent bot link) Add to your server]
*[(A permanent join link for your support channel) Support Channel]

Introduction (Completely own words)

Now you have to use your own sense to make people know more about your server/bot before you join. A good intro can bring lots of people! Add this to make a new paragraph:

== Description ==

For Servers

  • What are you guys mainly talking about?
  • Are there any features that makes yours different from other servers?
  • What's your goal?
  • Wanna list any staff? (Optional)
  • Make another paragraph is recommended. Like === Staff ===
  • Rules? (Another paragraph too, like === Rules ===)

For Bots

  • Features?
  • Stability?

Tips

  • Use appropriate formatting to show people important stuff.

Category (Code)

Both of servers and bots have this feature now.

At the end of the page, write:

[[Category:(Your desired category)]]

You can add more than 1 category, but before you should check the list of categories, go to the category page and see if you are allowed to add this category.

You don't need to add a paragraph to storage your categories. It is automatically shown at the bottom of this page.

NavServ Template

Copy this and paste it at the end of the page. Servers Only.

{{NavServ}}
