if options is:
option2 and option3 are not used by all GameTags. See the specific docs, below, for information.
if nolink= is not blank, display the tag but add no category links.
if nowiki= is not blank, this game does not support the wiki but we do have a game site for it (Lineage II is a good example). In this case we still want a game tag to flag articles in the ZAM wiki that refer to the game, but it cannot link to a Wiki Main Page for the game, since there isn't one.
thumbs= and checks= are NEW options that must be specifically enabled for the games where they will be used. They enable a link under the gametag to show the category page as thumbnails or as a checklist and should be used ONLY on category pages! Talk to Bludwyng if this confuses you. :)
The graphic displayed in the tag should be located at Aion (Game Icon), a page that should have the image uploaded to it, and contain the following code:
Unlike most gamebases, where the gametag is intended to go ANYWHERE on the page,usually top or bottom, Aion's gametag is designed for the top. This is because of the inclusion of the MenuBar in the gametag code.
In addition to the standard GameTag options, the following values for option are defined for this game. Use of Q, M, or I indicates a placeholder page with some notes that should be combined with the complete template, later.
|option||Meaning||Relevant Categories and Usage Notes|
|Q, M, I, O, P||Quest, Mob, Item, Object, Place||Category:Un-Templated Pages If Q, P, M or O, option2 is the name of the zone and option3 is the place. For Q, use where it Starts. These option1 values should be used only on "stub" pages, when running thru a zone doing the initial quick-pass before going back and fully filling in the pages with the correct template, etc. This is just a shorthand version. I can also add setname= and settype=.|
