The appearances project is all about categorising and labelling Warcraft characters based upon where they have appeared, using {{appearances}}.

Which characters?Edit

Every Warcraft character, including units from the RTS games and NPCs from WoW should use the template.

OrderingEdit

Ordering is by whatever order the template is given inputs - it is not ordered by the template.

Currently ordered by publish date of the appearance, except for novels - which follow the in-universe chronology. See WoWWiki:Appearances project/Order.

Article locationEdit

The section, titled ==Appearances==, should appear before "See also", and after any character quotes. See also WoWWiki:Manual of Style.

Shorthand schemaEdit

The template uses similar schema to {{cite}}, i.e. WoWWiki:Book citation index.

See Template talk:Appearances for documentation.

Category schemaEdit

What is categorized?Edit

Games, RPGS and novels categorise into a "<name> characters" category.

HowEdit

New category under Category:Characters, Category:Characters by appearances.

All appearances categories move under here. Character articles should no longer need to specify their appearances.

WoW NPCs can be dealt with separately, but the category will need some reorganising.

The template in actionEdit

This:

==Appearances==
{{appearances|wc2|tod|wow}}

Gives (altered for clarity):
