Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Wiki videos

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This page is part of the Wiki videos project.

Video overviews of an article's subject can be very useful for readers. Formerly, the Curse-owned mcspotlights channel created videos and placed them in articles. Regular wiki users were not allowed to modify video placement or the videos themselves. However, that channel is long since not producing new videos, and those it had produced are getting increasingly outdated.

It has been proposed that wiki editors create their own videos in replacement of those created by mcspotlights, so that articles could be supplemented by modern and community-controlled videos.

Video guidelines[edit]

  • Follow a consistent style in all videos.
  • The page(s) talked about should always be linked in the description.
  • If the video is in a non-english language, it should include the language code before the video name (eg "[PT] Zumbi" for a Portuguese zombie video)
    • To discuss: [EN] on english videos? How about before any non-english ones are uploaded?

Creating scripts[edit]

Anyone who signed up for the project is free to start creating a script for a new page.

The script should be a subpage of this project, named after the corresponding page, for example, the script about [[Creeper]] should be at [[Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Wiki videos/Creeper]], and have {{Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Wiki videos/Template|[[Java Edition X.XX]] and [[Bedrock Edition X.XX]]}} included at the top, with the X.XX replaced with the version numbers of the current releases; this is used to see what scripts are outdated and need an update.

Make sure to add a link under "In progress of writing" in the following format: [[Link to source page]] ([[/Link to script subpage|script]]).

When it's generally agreed upon that it's ready to be recorded, it'll be moved to "In progress of recording" and only minor edits will be made by the people involved in the recording.

If a script is about a feature which is changing in the next update, provide {{Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Wiki videos/WaitTemplate|reason}} at the top of the page, the reason should make it clear what part changed.

Script formatting[edit]

Unlike normal wiki articles, the viewers are being spoken to directly, so use "you" instead of "the player" to make the script/video more engaging.

Make parts of a sentence italic to specify there should be emphasis on this part of the sentence.

Write suggested visuals or audio in bold, this will not be spoken, and will instead be noted for the video editors to try to include. Remember, this is a suggestion and may be excluded from the video.
