Here is a set of guidelines for writing an article about a particular [[:Category:Diary references|diary entry]] that your hero may write. If you can't fill all of the necessary points , mark the article as a [[stub]] so other people can fill it in. Feel free to be as elaborate or as concise as you want:
= Structure for writing a diary article =
<li><p>Type the following at the start, substituting 00:00 for the relevant time :</p>
<p><code><nowiki>{{diary|text = 00:00    Diary entry here.}}</nowiki></code></p>
<p>This will produce something like this:</p>{{diary|text = 22:41    Writing up the guideline.}}</li>
<li>Add a relevant picture (optional)</li>
<li><p>Now, give some information about the entry such as what it refers to, what the effect of the entry is (e.g. gain [[godpower]]) and/or what it may be a parody of. If you want to, you could add a quote from the source of the entry if it is from a form of media, and it's author (if it has one). To do this, type:</p>
<p><code><nowiki>{{quote|author=Author's name here , Source here|Quote here}}</nowiki></code></p>
<p>to produce something like this:</p>{{quote|author=[[User:Fel1dragon|Fel1dragon]], GodWiki|It isn't easy to write a foolproof guideline!}}</li>
<li>If you want to add an external link to an on-line resource, add this at the end under an external link heading, enclosing the link in single square brackets.</li>
<li>After you have done as much of the above as possible, categorise your article by adding "<nowiki>[[Category:Heroes]]" and "[[Category: Diary References]]"</nowiki> at the end.</li>
If you are struggling to find inspiration or still don't know how to structure your article, look at the following completed article for inspiration or guidance:
* [[Crashed whale in an open field]] (The only example we have at the moment)
Good luck and happy writing!
