The following is an example page which every page on the wiki must conform to. This page provides a detailed layout and instruction for what sections a page should have and what information should be put in said sections.

One of the most important parts of creating and editing wiki pages is the structure of the article. The information on the article should be organized in a hierarchy manner with section headers dividing up the page's content to make navigating the article much easier.

No one is gonna want to read a messy article where the information is all over the place. Even if the information is good it creates the illusion of being incomprehensible as the article will be un-appealing from a visual perspective. You wouldn't read a story or novel if every page was an unformatted giant wall of text without paragraphs or chapter numbers to split everything up, and the same philosophy applies to wiki articles.

Note that this page is subject to change and any comments or suggestions about the layout should be forwarded to the talk page.

If you want more details regarding general wiki etiquette then see Wikipedia's Manual of Style.


This section of text should be a brief introduction to the article and should only consist of one or two sentences. A few important things to note about this section:

  1. The first instance of the article's subject being mentioned (like the name of the character) should be bolded. This is done by putting a ''' before and after the name.
e.g. '''Agent 47''' --> Agent 47

Example:

The manual of style is an example page which appears on the Hitman Wiki. It is dedicated to teaching users how to properly format articles.

Description

This first paragraph of the description section is used to describe a character. This can range from basic details of their attire to any notable physical traits that distinguish this character from others. Avoid adding unnecessary details to this section like their eye or hair color. A paragraph for their physical description should suffice.

The second paragraph and onward should detail the character's personality.

Feel free to use as many paragraphs to express this section as needed, but avoid repeating information.

Appearance

This section is unique to Targets and Characters. It should describe their in-game behavior. In general, this section should be "What does he do?" and not "How to get past him."

After that is done, there should be split sections on where the NPC appears.

Hitman: Codename 47

  1. Mission 1
  2. Mission 2

HITMAN™

  1. Mission 3
  2. Mission 4
