How to make a new project
Create a new article in the Guild Wars 2 Wiki namespace which has the name of your project. For instance, if you wanted to make a project to change inventory icon formatting to create consistency, you could make a page named "Guild Wars 2 Wiki:Projects/Inventory icon formatting"
The project page itself should be clear on what the project is trying to achieve. It may include things like:
- An overview of what the project aims to do.
- A detailed to-do list for the project.
Once the project page is ready, remember to add it to the list of current projects above and to Category:Projects with the appropriate sort key (e.g. [[Category:Projects|Inventory icon formatting]]).
- Document armor sets and outfits with screenshots that aren't from the preview window.
- Document explorable areas and their contents such as renown hearts, skill points...
