A major issue facing PCGamingWiki (or any wiki, for that matter) is consistency. Due to the open nature of the site, quality in content can vary wildly with screenshots, step-by-step fixes, table notes, and numerous other elements that make up an article.

The following guide is meant to serve as a constant framework for all edits and article creation on the wiki.

NOTE: This guide assumes that the reader has already looked at the sample article. It explains all the basics of the tables and provides bare-bones editing guidelines.
