PCGamingWiki:Editing guide/The disambiguation (disambig) tag

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This page is for {{Disambig}}. For its close relative, distinguish, see {{Distinguish}}.

Description

Use {{Disambig}} to provide clarification between multiple games. It is used primarily to distinguish games using the same title (original game vs. series reboot) and to distinguish original titles from their remakes. The tag can support a single descriptor for the current page, along with up to 4 separate game pairs (a link descriptor and the actual link).

The tag is to be placed directly above the infobox, but below the article state tag tag if one exists (e.g. {{stub}}, {{cleanup}}, {{state|dev}}, {{delete}}).
Use the tag only when needed. It can be omitted from an article otherwise.
