For the purpose of providing examples, hypothetical games will be known as The Legend of Zelda: Broken Promises or BP for short. When following these actions, be sure to replace the titles and initialisms with their proper equivalents.


  1. Go to Data:Franchise, add the game to the list using Template:Franchise/Store Game. For the logo field, enter the filename that you intend to use for step 3.
  2. Go to Data:Franchise#UploadField, copy the contents to MediaWiki:UploadField-select-Game.
  3. Upload a logo for the game, such as File:BP English Logo.png.
  4. Upload a "tile" for the game to appear on the Main Page: File:BP Tile.png
  5. Move any potential game page to the new name. These may be articles with temporary names based on the console it is set to release on. (The Breath of the Wild article was known as Zelda Wii U prior to the announcement of its official title.) If no page yet exists, create a new one with Template:Infobox Game.
  6. Create and adapt a template for the game's initialism (such as Template:BP for Broken Promises) by using the Game Link boilerplate. Create a documentation page for the template (such as Template:BP/Documentation) by using the Game Link documentation boilerplate.
  7. Add the game to Template:Games.
