Do not add any attributions (like "written by XYZ") or dates ("written on 14/02/09") to articles. An accurate record of all contributions to an article is available via its "History" page.

Referencing is an important tool to prove information that is otherwise not obvious or well known. References should be concise enough as to not clutter pages, yet sufficient enough to prove whatever needs to be proven. References come in a variety of sources such as, but not limited to, non-player character dialogue, computer terminal entries and in-game notes. Detailed information on how to reference certain sources is found in the main article, linked above.
