Template:Season Data

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide


Documentation

This template is used to place a season info box on a Battlestar Wiki article page. It provides lower case parameters only. This template should only be placed on Season pages. Because this template makes frequent use of external links, particularly in the later seasons of the Re-imagined Series with SciFi Pulse, special care should be taken to keep uses of this template updated. Dead links should be removed, and new materials should be added whenever they may surface.

Required Parameters

  • image: All seasons should have an associated image.
    • Example: Nukes_in_Miniseries.jpg
  • title: Should be written as the word "Season" followed by the text-only number of the season.
    • Example: Season One
    • Note: This should be filled in for all series, including TOS and 1980 seasons one, in which case you would enter Season One as a parameter.
    • Note: This is not the pagename.
  • series: This is the most important parameter in the template. Insert tos for the Original Series, 1980 for Galactica 1980, or leave blank for the Re-imagined Series.
    • Note: Inserting tos or 1980 will turn off the Season Chronology, the population counter, the Full Episodes, the R&D skits, and all podcast materials, and will update the Series links and the Forum links accordingly.
  • season: The numeric value for the season.
    • Example: 1
    • Note: This should be filled in for all series, including TOS and 1980 seasons one, in which case you would enter 1 as a parameter.
  • episodes: The numeric value of the number of episodes in the particular season.
  • episodelistid: The name of the section devoted to this season in List of all episodes.
  • execproducer: The Executive Producer(s) of the series.
  • imdb: The number of the IMDB entry for the series. Only specify the number, NOT, the tt prefix.
    • Examples: 0407362 for the Re-imagined Series, 0076984 for the Original Series, and 0080221 for Galactica 1980.

Optional Parameters

  • extra: Include any additional information here that might be helpful to the viewer.

RDM Parameters

  • series: Leave blank.
  • startpop: Numeric value of the population count on the first episode of the previous season. Do not include commas.
  • endpop: Numeric value of the population count of the last episode of the season in question. Do not include commas here either.
  • prev: Full Wikilink of the previous season, used for the Season Chronology. If no previous season input (None).
  • next: Full Wikilink of the following season, used for the Season Chronology. If no following season input (None).
  • fulleps: Fill in with Y if there are episodes available for this season on SciFi Pulse. This will turn the "Full Episodes" on.
  • fullepsid: Input the ID code for any one of the available full episodes for the season in question on SciFi Pulse. Doing so will automatically play the episode, but will also display a list in the box on the right-hand side of the browser of all the episodes available, allowing users to easily pick and choose which episodes they want to watch.
  • RDskit: Fill in with Y if there is a Battlestar Wiki page present cataloging the season's R&D skits.
  • podcast: Fill in with Y if there are transcripts available on List of Podcasts. The template will automatically redirect to the appropriate season on the List of Podcasts page.
    • Note: Because there are now podcast pages for all seasons of the Re-imagined Series on SciFi, an Audio link will still exist even if this parameter is left blank, so long as the series parameter is also left blank.
  • promomat: Fill in with Y if there are promotional materials available. Turns the entire "Promotional Materials" subsection on and off.
  • teasers: Fill in with Y if there are teasers available on SciFi Pulse. Turns the entire "Teasers" subsection on and off.
  • teaserlnk: This is where you insert the entire link for each teaser. For multiple examples, follow all but the last link with a space, dash, space, or - .
    • Examples:
| teaserlnk1= [http://video.scifi.com/player/?id=191433 Future] - 
| teaserlnk2= [http://video.scifi.com/player/?id=191432 Future (2)] - 
| teaserlnk3= [http://video.scifi.com/player/?id=189559 Destiny]
  • promolnk: This space is provided for any other major promotional works made for the season, such as the Resistance Webisodes or the Razor Flashbacks. If there are still videos available on SciFi Pulse, then they are preferable, however, if they have been taken down, then Wikilinks to the appropriate pages are acceptable. For links to promotional materials on SciFi Pulse, link to only the first installment of a series, for example, the first Webisode. A scroll down list will appear on the right of the browser listing all the installments. All promos should always be in bold.
    • Example:
| promolnk= '''[http://video.scifi.com/player/?id=29339 Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance]'''
