Welcome to the completely unofficial Calontiri Wiki![edit source]

Adding a Page about yourself:[edit source]

  • Send an email to sofya at calontiri dot info or FB Lisa Sofya Kies to request a page
  • Fill in the outline with information about yourself.
  • After you've saved your edits, "categorize" yourself appropriately. See below.

If you want to add an image, you'll have to upload it to the wiki first, then place it on the page. Unfortunately, only logged-in "members" can do this themselves. (Non-members can send the image to Sofya la Rus to have it uploaded).

  • Use the "Upload File" link in the bottom section of the left sidebar.
  • Put your edit cursor in the place on the page where you want the image.
  • Click the "Embedded File" button on the edit bar (the little picture to the right of the big A button).
  • Put the name of your uploaded image in the command line that appears
  • Images will look best if you align them to the right.

A note about Categories:[edit source]

  • "Categories" are how the wiki will be able to list people with like-minded individuals on the same page
  • Category tags should be placed using the appropriate tab in the Edit window, or at the very bottom of your page under the Edit Source command
    • Using the Edit Source option, each category must be listed separately and be included in double brackets as [[Category:*whatever*]]
    • For example, if you add the command "Category:Scribe" to the bottom your page, then that page will automatically be listed on the Scribe category page with everyone else.
  • If you add the "Category:Silent Heraldry" to your page, then you will be listed with everyone else who is tagged.
  • Categories should probably be more generic rather than more specific - so use "Category:Music" rather than "Category:Vocal Music", "Category:Weaving" rather than "Category:Cardweaving", etc.
    • A&S categories are based on the official categories in the Kingdom Judging Criteria, somewhat simplified, eg. Dance instead of "Dance Performance, European"
    • Award/Order categories are based the official name of the Order, eg. "Silver Hammer"
    • Group categories are just the name of the group, eg. "Vatavia" NOT "Barony of Vatavia".
