I looked in a few places (RS:STYLE, RS:QSG, RS:QG) and couldn't find a style guide for quick guides. Could we decide on a few rules here? --Iiii I I I 04:59, March 28, 2015 (UTC)

suggestion - Page should be named (Name of quest)/Quick guide. Content: {{QG}}, ===Walkthrough===, {{Quest details}}, ==Heading of quest section(s)== and then numbered steps (or bullet points?), no reward details. Last step should be "Quest complete!". Include only necessary steps, basic instructions to get to the point - no fluffiness. Also instructions like (space - 2 - 3) for example should be mentioned. Something like that?

They should end with the Quest's category, adding "| " (e.g. "[[Category:Dimension of Disaster| ]]") to sort it at the top of the category, next to the full guide. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 03:39, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

Bump - Is there anything else that needs to be said besides what Starieena has brought forth or any opposition to that? svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 17:19, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Seemed to have missed it originally, but "===Walkthrough===" should be "==Walkthrough==", one header level higher. Images can be used if they complement the steps that need to be taken (e.g. the pathway map at Fate of the Gods/Quick guide). Nobody commented on whether to use bullet points vs numbered steps. My preference would be bullet points, although I have no arguments for or against. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 17:29, April 15, 2015 (UTC)
Oh yeah, slight oversight, ==Walkthrough==, and then ===Heading of quest sections(s)===. Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 17:36, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

Closed - Style guide has been written to RuneScape:Quick guide#Layout and is linked from the Quest style guide. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 19:11, May 13, 2015 (UTC)
