General Guides - Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where do I start if I want to make a Guide?
A. You can get a good idea of guides structures and detail by looking through the existing guides, or contact on our our Player-Made Guides Moderators. Once you feel like you have a good idea of what you want to start on, you can post your guide in the General Guides forum (you're here now! ). This is where you can start on your guide and make it the best it can be. Don't forget to place [WIP] in your title so your readers know you're still working on it.
Q. How come my guide hasn't been added to the Archive of Wisdom?
A. The AOW is reserved for the most broad-reaching and challenging aspects of the game. Please do not ask for your guide to be added into the AOW. PMG Mods will choose which ones are deserving of the recognition. If you ask a Mod to move your guide into the AOW, it will be turned down.
Q. But my guide has important new information for a skill/quest/mini game!
A. Then please post in the Website Updates and Corrections forum under the appropriate guide topic - the Crew will be delighted to review your information and add it to the website guide if appropriate, giving credit to the first poster. Thanks in advance!
Q. Who can I contact about guide promotion?
A. To nominate a guide for AOW promotion, simply report it using the /!\ Report button! More information can be found here.
Q. I'm looking for a certain guide. How can I find what I'm looking for?
A. At the top of the forums there is a search bar where you can enter key terms for topics you're looking for.
