Recruitment page and suburb groups in Roywood

Stop hand.png Recruitment
Your ad has been removed from the Recruitment page because of rules violation, specifically , not all of the content is contained in the template. There is a guide here. Please re-add it if you are still active and recruiting.

I know that's a scary looking warning thing, so let me run through what it means with you. Basically, rather than the text of your ad actually going on the Recruitment page, you need to create the Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers/Recruit page, and put all of the text on that page, instead of putting it on the Recruitment page itself.

Here's what the code you should put on the Recruitment page should look like (if you check other groups' code, you'll see it all follows this same pattern):

===[[Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers]] : Zombie Group===
{{:Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers/Recruit}}

Take note of the four tildes (i.e. ~~~~) as well. Those are used to provide your signature and a timestamp of when you post the ad. You're required to update your timestamp at least once every two months, otherwise your ad will get pulled off of the Recruitment page. Just a heads up.

After that, on the Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers/Recruit page, you should put this text that you originally had on the Recruitment page (I've modified it slightly by adding some required stuff):

Like bananas? Want to kill things and use their brains, along with ice cream slop, to make a not so bland treat? Tired of being called a stupid zombie, interest only in brains? Then come join! Show them we can eat more than brains.


<noinclude>[[Category:Group Subpages]]
[[Category:Recruitment|Zombie Group]]</noinclude>

Anything you add to that page will get dynamically inserted into the Recruitment page, thanks to that first batch of code I gave you.

If you want to see an example of how it all works, one of the groups I'm in has a similar page at Soldiers of Crossman/Recruit. And if you go check the Recruitment page, you'll see our advertisement show up here. But if you go to edit the code that we posted on the Recruitment page, you'll see that there isn't much there, yet it does what we need.

Also, I noticed that you tried to add yourself to the list of groups in Roywood. There was a minor issue with the code that made it difficult to use before. After seeing your edits, I corrected the minor issue. Try adding your group again, though, rather than using the code you used before, I'd suggest using the following instead:

*[[Image:Bananas.jpg|25px]] [[Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers|HBBSB]]

The difference from what you had before is that HBBSB is not a page you've created, and you were trying to link to that before. This code will instead link to Horrible Banana Brain Sundae Brothers, which you have created, but the text of the link will show up as HBBSB, just like that.

Let me know if you have any issues following what I've said here or if you need any other help with this stuff. I know it's a lot to take in and follow, so if you have any questions, I'd be more than up for answering them. Oh, and welcome to the wiki! Aichon 23:33, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
