#Make Dragon Nest go into Window mode
 
#Open another application, or click on your desktop, and resize the window to the smallest area possible.
 
#Make sure the part of Dragon Nest that you want to take a screenshot of still shows.
 
#Click on the other application.
 
#Press Print Screen (Prnt Scrn).
 
#File > Paste (Ctrl+V) into a photo editor (paint works fine).
 
#Crop your image to desired size.
 
#Save as .PNG or .png to maintain 100% quality (uncompressed).
 
*Make sure that your file is a .png (''not capitalized'') when you upload it to Dragon Nest Wiki HQ.
 
 
Alternatively, windows vista and 7 users can run Dragon Nest in windowed mode, then from the start menu launch "Snipping tool". The screen then freezes and fades out, and allows you to select and crop any area of the screen to save as a PNG.<br>

Introductions

Here you will learn how things should be formatted and get a clearer image of what we're looking for in this Wiki. By following these guidelines, maintaining consistency throughout the site will be much easier for everyone and will, hopefully, decrease the number of questions asked -- as well as any confusion one may encounter.

No Profanity!

Please refrain from using profanity on the wiki, unless used within a direct quotation.

North American English Please!

To avoid conflict, it is recommended that all English on this wiki is written in North American English instead of Queen's English.

  • Example:
    • Favorite, not favourite.
    • Color, not colour.
    • Armor, not Armour

Writing Perspective

In order to keep information straight forward and not opinionated, please avoid writing in first-person on content pages. This does not include talk pages!

  • Example:
    • Correct Format: Players are given 60 minutes to complete the battle.
    • Incorrect Format: You're given 60 minutes to complete the battle.

Rumors and Unofficial Information

All information should come directly from Nexon and Dragon Nest, rumors are discouraged. This does not apply to future content which comes from other versions of Dragon Nest.

  • Example:
    • "In the future characters will be able to transform into huge magical aliens."
    • Unless Nexon, EYEDENTITY GAMES, or Dragon Nest states that we will indeed be able to transform into magical aliens, do not post it anywhere on this wiki!

Numbers

When using numbers on a page, please make sure they are formatted like this: #,###.

  • Not # ### or ####.
  • Example:
    • At rank 5, Skill X does 1,500 Damage.

Redirects

To redirect a page to another page, type the following in the page that's being redirected:

  • #REDIRECT [[page you're redirecting to]]

If a page is being redirected to a category, please format it like this:

  • #REDIRECT [[:Category:pagename]]
    • Note the colon before "Category".

Reason:

  • Not using the colon before the word "Category" will categorize the page you're redirecting into the category it's redirecting to.

Example:

  • Page "Mage" redirects to "Category:Class".
    • The page "Category:Class" will contain a link to the page "Mage" which redirects the user back to "Category:Class".
      • You won't get anywhere.

Comments, Talk Pages, and Discussion Pages

|content=Sign all comments you make on talk and discussion pages by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ )!

  • Reason:
    • It's tedious going through the page history just to find out who wrote what.
    • It's easier to respond to someone if you know who said it.

Images

Only upload high-quality images! .PNG images are preferred.

Please refer to the Naming Image Files section for guidelines in regards to naming.

  • Reason:
    • Pages that don't follow this guideline will be deleted, so follow it.

Please upload images as .PNG files. If a file is really big, you may upload it as a .JPG / .JPEG file.

  • Reason:
    • PNG files typically compress better than GIF files.
    • Transparency!

NPC Images

NPC Portraits
NPC portraits are rendered images of NPCs as they appear when you're chatting with them.
