The official guide to formatting and styling on the Avengers Academy Wikia.

General Rules

In-game spellings and grammar supersede standard grammar rules. (i.e., S.H.I.E.L.D. H.Q. is used instead of S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ)

Please use internal links (links to pages within our wikia) as opposed to external links (links to other wikia pages, or outside sites) whenever possible. This can be done by highlighting the relevant word, clicking the link button (the paperclip next to B and I), and selecting the related article/character/event from the drop-down menu. In the Source Editor, this can be done by adding two brackets [[ ]] around the word (as long as the word is the name of the page you're trying to link to).

For linking categories internally, go into the link menu and type "category:[name]".

Try to only link the first appearance of a character on a page. If it's a mission board quest, and Loki's the one talking, his name would get linked there. If he also shows up in the trivia section, the second appearance of his name would not be linked.

Links should not be used in tables, with a few exceptions—such as the Quest Guides, and the Event Category pages.

Whenever you are listing full sentences (such as Character soundbites/gratitude lines or World News ticker text), the lists should be alphabetical.

Buildings

To be updated. In the mean time, use these pages as templates:

Character Pages

All character pages should follow the same basic format.

Do not make pages for characters who have not appeared in the game yet. (As a general rule of thumb: if you cannot find an official picture to use, do not create a page!)

Infobox

All character pages must have an infobox. We use the generic Character infobox. To add it manually to a page, click "Insert" and then "Infobox" and choose "Infobox Character" from the list. The Infobox should go at the very top of the page.

We fill out every section in the Infobox. Below is what show be in each section.

  • Name: their full civilian name.
  • Image: this should be the "arrival" photo, the screen with their title that appears the first time the character arrives at your school. Until that picture can be obtained or in special cases such as Union Jack, who didn't get an arrival screen, we shall use the "New Recruit Available" photo.
  • Image Caption: should be "[character name] arrives at Avengers Academy".
  • Aliases: their superhero name.
  • Relatives: if relevant to the game, include. If not, skip. For example, Loki, Thor, and Odin clearly have an important relationship to the game. However, Cassie Lang will probably not be in the game, since her dad is a teenager.
  • Affiliation: all Academy Students and Staff are affiliated with "Avengers Academy". Beyond that, there are sometimes other groups that the student could be part of (S.H.I.E.L.D., The Guardians of the Galaxy). Those should be included on a separate line, and no commas should be used.
  • Species: Earthlings are called "Midgardian", to match the Asgardian distinction. Other alien races are called by their race.
  • Gender: Either Male or Female, but here's hoping we get some genderqueer characters in the future!

Character Quote

"[Quote]"
—[Character's Title]
The Quote is whatever the character says at the Character Recruited! screen when they join your Academy. This is not a separate "section" on its own, but should go at the top before the Description.

Description

No section header for this, it just goes at the top after the Quote. The basic structure should include the same few sentences, but others can be added as needed (for example, linking to the Event category page for Event Characters). Here's the basic format:

[short, witty description of character], [super hero name], civilian name [civilian name], is the [#] recruitable character in Avengers Academy. His/Her Recruitment Quest is [link to quest]. His/Her Mission Board Quests can be found [link to category page].

EX:

Thief-turned-superhero, Ant-Man, civilian name Scott Lang, is the ninth recruitable character in Avengers Academy. His Recruitment Quest is Ant-Plan. His Mission Board Quests can be found here.

Some of the Premium characters have Introductory Quests instead of Recruitment Quests. Link to whichever one is appropriate.

Requirements

These should be all of the requirements in the form of a bulleted list.

  • Level [#]
  • Start the quest [link to quest]
  • [action required] [#] times
    • [character required]
    • Time: [#]
    • Location: [location]
  • Collect [#] [character items]
  • Collect [#] Avengers Textbooks
  • [#] Credits

Upgrades

Title is the Rank Name that appears on the upgrade screen or in the store, they should be punctuated how it is in-game. Level Required is the level need to upgrade to that rank. Typical event characters have a flat upgrade level of 5 or 6 for all ranks. The Cost is a list of all currency needed to purchase that rank.

Rank Title Level Required Cost
2
4
4
5

Below is a blank version of the code for the Upgrade table. If you want to use this style, please copy & paste this into the code into the page you're editing, hit "Apply Changes", and then edit it in the normal viewer to add more rows.

Appearance

Should look like this to start.

[character title]'s Rank 1 outfit is [description of outfit].

[character title]'s Rank 3 outfit is [description of outfit].

[character title]'s Rank 5 outfit is [description of outfit].

Story

This is an optional section to quickly summarize the character's narrative so far in the story of Avengers Academy. Please only include information that directly pertains to the character in question.

Character Relationships

Character names should be Sub-heading 1, with the description of the relationship immediately following in normal Paragraph style. Only include sections for characters if you've got something to add. If at all possible, start the description for that character with the character's name near the front of the sentence, and include a link to that character's page in the description. For example, here's what the Wasp description looks like on Ant-Man's page:

Like Wasp, Ant-Man also uses Pym Particles to shrink in size. Unlike Wasp, he also controls an army of insects.

Soundbites

We start off by listing the voice actor, then have an ALPHABETIZED bulleted list of their soundbites. We most often use italics to show emphasis, but use other punctuation as appropriate. The format should be this:

[character title] is voiced by [voice actor name with link to IMDB/youtube/professional website]

  • "[A-soundbite]"
  • "[B-soundbite]"
  • "[C-soundbite]"

Gratitude Lines

Gratitude lines are things that the characters say when you collect a mission crate. Similar to the soundbites, these should also be in an ALPHABETIZED bulleted list.

Actions

Name should be punctuated how it is in-game. Time is written as "[#]s", "[#]m", "[#]hr", and "[#] day". Location should include both the Building in question and the Action Area required (check the Building page for the official list of Action Area names). Rank is the character Rank required for the action. Notes are additional notes, such as "Requires [outfit]" or "[Outfit] reduces time to [new time]".

Name Time Location Rank Notes

Below blank version of the code for the Action table. If you want to use this style, please copy & paste this into the code into the page you're editing, hit "Apply Changes", and then edit it in the normal viewer to add more rows.

{| class="article-table" style="width: 100%;"
|-
! Name
! Time
! Location
! Rank
! width="200" |Notes
|-

|
|}

Trivia

Include trivia that is not already reported on somewhere on the page already.

BAD: "Enchantress doesn't currently have an action at The Bifrost". This is bad because anyone looking at her Actions section can see that for themselves.

GOOD: "Tony has a second fridge in Stark Tower filled with nothing but cheese." This is good because this is an extra bit of information you'd only know if you played the quest where Iron Man mentions his cheese fridge.

Photos

This section should include relevant photos of the character. Some examples of photos we'd like for every character:

  • Character Recruited! screen
  • Character Upgraded! level 3 screen
  • Character Upgraded! level 5 screen
  • Character's Requirements screen (when they're waiting in the Quad to be recruited, with a list of what's required to recruit them to their right)
  • Character Rank Up! screen
  • First in-game appearance
  • Character's icon
  • Outfit Unlocked! screen (if applicable)
  • Advertising that includes this character (if applicable)
  • Gifs of the character doing their actions
  • Any funny/memorable pieces of dialogue (though don't go crazy here!)

Tagging

Every character page should be tagged "Characters". Other than that, there are a few other categories we use. Tag characters as appropriate--if you feel a tag is lacking, please contact the Mods first before adding it yourself.

  • A.I.M. - characters who are/were members of A.I.M.
  • Academy Staff - characters who are part of the staff
  • Academy Students - characters who are recruitable to the school
  • Asgardians - characters who come from Asgard
  • Event Characters - characters first available during events
  • Guardians of the Galaxy - characters in that group, not just characters introduced in that event (so does not include Nebula & Yondu).
  • Hydra - characters who are/were members of Hydra
  • Premium Characters - characters who are only available for purchase with Shards
  • S.H.I.E.L.D. - characters who are part of S.H.I.E.L.D. in-game.
  • [Event Tag] - if the character was introduced during an Event, they get the Event tag

Decorations

To be updated. In the mean time, use these pages as templates:

Events

Each Event gets its own tag, and starting with the Guardians of the Galaxy Event, its own page. Look to the Guardians of the Galaxy Event category page and the Guardians of the Galaxy Event page-page for examples of how to format future events. All Quests, Event Characters, Event Decorations, Event Buildings, and Event Generators should get the Event tag for that Event.

The main page of the Wiki should have a short description of the Event and a link to the Event category page/Event page during any new Event.

Mission Board Quests

All of the Mission pages should follow the same basic format. The general rule for missions is, "pics or it didn't happen"—no mission may be added unless it has photographic evidence of its existence.

Picture

If possible, include a screenshot of the quest requirements AND the bit of dialogue that goes along with them. We prefer pictures that show the entire screen for this very reason.

Description

The Mission title, in bold, should be the first thing on the page. The first sentence should also tell us what type of Mission Board Quest it is (Easy/Heroic, or nothing). This should be followed by the bit of dialogue the on-screen character is saying about the Mission.

Ex.

  • Codebreaker is an Easy Mission Board Quest. Ant-Man says, "There's more than one way to crack a safe."

Requirements

This should always be in the form of a table. The Character column is for the name of the character; if an Action requires more than one character, include them all in the box (ex. "Loki + One Other Student"). The Action column is for the name of the Action. Time should be written as "[#]s", "[#]m", "[#]hr", and "[#] day". The Location should be "[Building] ([action area])", and you can check the Building pages for the standard names of the action areas if you're unsure.

Here's an example of a correctly formatted table:

Character Action Time Location
Ant-Man

Crack Codes

2m The Timeless Archives (computer)

And here's a blank one if you just want to copy the code:

{| class="article-table" style="width: 100%;"
|-
! Character
! Action
! Time
! Location
|-
|
|
|
|
|}

***Note: sometimes there are multiple variations of the same Mission. If the title, text, and character speaking are all the same, we consider those different "versions". Look to Step Lightly for an example on how to format those.***

Tags

All Mission Board Quests should get both the Quests and Mission Board Quest tags. Beyond that, there are a few more tags we add, as applicable.

  • Easy Mission/Heroic Mission - these get added if the Mission in question is labeled as an "Easy Mission" or "Heroic Mission" in-game (this is not personal preference). Most quests are not labeled as either.
  • Character tags - each Character that has an Action in the Mission needs to be tagged. The format for these tags is "[Character] Mission". (Ex. A-Bomb Mission, Maria Hill Mission, Vision Mission.)

Quests

All of the quest pages should follow the same basic format.

Infobox

We use a custom Quest infobox. To add it manually to a page, click "Insert" and then "Infobox" and choose "Infobox Quest" from the list or below is the source code for you to copy and paste. The Infobox should be at the very top of the page.

{{Infobox Quest
 | complete = 
 | view = 
 | other = 
 | level = 
 | reward = 
 | previous = 
 | next = 
}}

The first four sections are for the Prerequisites for the Quest. 9/10 the prerequisite is the quest you completed right before it.

  • complete the quest you had to complete to unlock the quest. Typically the previous quest. On rare occasions it can take two or three.
  • view The quest you only had to watch the Pre-action Dialogue to unlock. Not actually complete the quest. Typically left blank in most cases.
  • other Used for any other prerequisites such as a building level or completing only one part of a recruitment quest. Typically left blank in most cases.
  • level The level you have to be to get the quest. Leave blank if unknown.
  • Reward The Credit or event currency amount received for completing the quest. Character and Decoration unlocks can listed here as well.
  • previous The quest you complete that unlock it.
  • next the quest that comes after completing it.

Picture

If possible, include a screenshot of the quest requirements. We prefer pictures that show the entire screen, not just the box with the Quest requirements. This will be next on the page. The below format will force the picture to the left of the info box.

Here is what the Picture Format should look like:

[[File:Cap And Field.png|none|thumb|400x400px]]

Description

The Quest title, in bold, should be the next thing on the page. The first sentence should also tell us what type of Quest it is (ideally as a hyperlink to that type's category page). The following sentence/s should be a quick recap of what the quest is about. Do not feel the need to write multiple paragraphs, one or two sentences is enough.

Ex.

  • Think About It, Pt. 1 is a Storyline Quest. Madame Hydra confronts Falcon on his decision to go to Avengers Academy (and not Hydra School).

Requirements

These will generally be in the form of a table, similar to Mission Board Quests. List the characters in the order they appear in-game. If multiple characters are required for the same action, list them both/all in the same Character box (ex. "Captain America + Enchantress"). The Action column is self-explanatory, and Time should be written as "[#]s", "[#]m", "[#]hr", and "[#] day". The Location should be "[Building] ([action area])", and you can check the Building pages for the standard names of the action areas if you're unsure.

Here is an example of a correctly formatted table:

Character Action Time Location
Enchantress Cast Spells 1m Quad (walking)

Sometimes Quests require things that aren't actions ("Recruit ______ to the Academy!", "Collect __ items!", etc.). If that's the case, each thing should be a separate bullet point. These should go above the Action table (if there is one). For an example of this, see The Task At Hand.

Gallery

If there are screenshots from the dialogue that are worth saving, they can be included in this optional section. However, please keep in mind that this wiki will not be hosting entire scenes.

Tagging

All Quests are tagged "Quests". Beyond that, it matters what type of quest they are. If you're confused by the tagging, just notify a mod and we'll take care of it for you! You can always check out a quest page that's similar to what you're trying to create (for example, the previous quest that leads to the one you're creating now) to check those tags. These are the main tags we use to categorize quests:

  • Event Quest - Quests that are only available for a limited time during Events.
  • [event name] - each Event gets its own tag, for tagging everything introduced during that Event.
  • Mission Board Quest - Missions on the Mission Board. (See the Mission Board Quest section on this page for more information.)
  • Storyline Quest - Quests that are part of the main story of Avengers Academy, and are available to all players for free.
    • Recruitment Quest - the specific Quest where you invite different characters to your Academy.
    • Introductory Quest - quests that introduce Premium Characters. These quests do not require the Premium Characters to proceed--they are "try before you buy" type things. The first such quest in the questline should be tagged "Introductory Quest".
  • Premium Quests - Quests that require a Shard purchase to initiate. These include Premium Character quests, Premium Outfit Quests, and Premium Recruitment Bonus Quests. Note: We're still in the process of switching over Quests to this tag.
    • Premium Recruitment Bonus Quest - limited-time Quests for the Premium Characters, offering a bonus reward if you buy them within a certain time-frame.
