Uniform Historical Information
Many articles contain historical information that is not correctly marked as such (or in some cases marked at all). Historical information that may not be or is no longer relevant to current readers should be placed in a Historical header and all together on each article, such as here. This makes article overviews less cluttered and more pertinent. I have been trying to correct these issues wherever I have found them, but I am certain there are many, many more to be done everywhere throughout the wiki. If you find one and don't feel like updating it yourself, please let me know on my talk page and I will take care of it. For more information on the use of the Historical template, see here.
Example Historical Information
For all Historical sections, information should be in chronological order.
This is a good metric to follow for Powerset articles. For articles that can't be so neatly sorted into a list of bullets, just organize the information as best as possible.
- This set was added to the game in [[Issue N]].
- [[#Power A]] formerly had <bug here> problem. It was fixed on <date here> [in <patch here> if possible].
- This set was proliferated to [[Archetype 1]]s in [[Issue N2]] and to [[Archetype 2]]s and [[Archetype 3]]s in [[Issue N3]].
