This page is considered a guideline on WoWWiki.

It illustrates standards of conduct, which many editors agree with in principle. However, it is not policy.

In the past, WoWWiki used to have quite a large collection of AddOn pages, being one of the first sites to have such a thing. Over time however, it grew outdated as dedicated AddOn sites took over that function. We now treat AddOn pages a bit differently.

Regular AddOn pages

We're happy to have AddOn pages here on WoWWiki, as long as they contain something that's useful and not available everywhere else. Examples include:

  • WoWWiki contributors reviewing AddOns that they find particularly useful. Such a page does not have to contain all the info about the addon at all, you can simply link to hosting sites. The important part here is that the content here on the wiki is actually unique to the wiki and useful!
  • Authors using WoWWiki as the main site for info about their AddOn. Not everyone has a web server, and AddOns are a big part of WoW, so it's certainly on topic.
  • Authors using WoWWiki for otherwise unique information about their AddOn that is not generally available somewhere else.

Please place the {{addon}} template at the top of the page (or {{addon/subpage}} template at the top of any subpages). This will add it to the AddOns category. If for some reason you do not want the banner that {{addon}} produces, you can of course add [[Category:AddOns]] manually.
