Help:People

From OBA Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

As always, be careful what you write about living people or people whose close family are living. An exception on this site, because it is about a school, is that nicknames will not be censored unless they are really offensive (If necessary Simon Meeds will adjudicate).

Wikipedia uses a special template for people. It allows a standard information box to be created on the right hand side of the page with key information about the person. This general-purpose template has been copied to the OBA Wiki, and a customised version of it has been created specifically for use in entries about Boston Grammar School staff.

DEFAULTSORT

For all articles titled with a person's name, include the invisible template...
{{DEFAULTSORT:new key}}
...which allows the article to be correctly sorted. For example, in an article entitled "Fred Smith" use...
{{DEFAULTSORT:Smith, Fred}}

Boston Grammar School staff (past and present)

For past and present BGS staff the Infobox BGS Staff template should be used. Here is the blank template with all parameters.
