While we do have page histories as all MediaWiki based sites do, many of our pages have been moved over from the old WikiFoundry/Wetpaint based CLG Wiki and some date even further back to KRS Logos, or even it’s predecessors such as Eric Hartman’s Logo Description Page. As a result of repeated migration of pages and platforms going defunct over time, original attribution information for these pages is not easily available. As a result, the page credits are the main record of the original authors of these pages. Even on pages originating on the current wiki, credits provide a clear form of attribution at a glance without having to sift through page and file histories
Credits should be added to all new pages. This can be done through the following methods:
1. Add the following wikitext at the very top of the page:
2. Choose your parameters depending on your needs from the list below, separatating each parameter with this symbol:

When you save or preview the page, the credits should show up properly formatted.
An example of this template in use can be seen at the top of this page. In this case, the syntax is as follows:
Only add yourself to the credits of a page if you made a substantial contribution. Do not do so if you only changed a few words or made minor formatting updates.
