Usage

This template allows us to display the logbook entries for various enemies and objects in the Metroid Prime games (scan data should be added using the {{Scan}} template). This is an extremely important template, but it is somewhat abstract to use. It has the following parameters, some of which will hardly ever be used and you probably will not ever have to deal with them. If you have logbook info but cannot use the template, ask an administrator or an experienced user for assistance.

  • Name: Entry Name (e.g. "Beetle" for Beetle's Logbook entry).
  • Entry: Text that appears in the game's logbook. Write it out exactly as written in the logbook, even if it has spelling or grammatical errors. Automatically cites the source.
  • Game: Abbreviation for game (see below).
  • Location: The first location the scan appeared.
  • Image: The image displayed. If multiple images appear, place the image that appears to the right in this slot.
  • Imageleft: The image that appears to the left, if one exists. Otherwise, leave blank.
  • Clear: (noclear, left, right, or both) Place "none" here if no clear should be used. "left", "right", or "both" also work to signify which direction the clear should be placed. Be sure the preview when using this parameter.
  • Position: (top, mid, or bottom) May be used to stack multiple Logbook templates.
  • One-Time Scan: This parameter should be used when a scan is available for a limited time in-game. It makes a small Metroid icon appear on the template, signifying that the entry is a limited scan. Remove "onetime=" if this does not apply.
  • Reference: ("none") This one is extremely important. The Logbook templates automatically cite themselves, but certain cases can prevent this from functioning properly. For ref=, type "ref=none" to remove the reference function from that particular logbook entry. If this is done, add it in manually using the {{Cite}} template. Because of the way the template works, two templates used back-to-back would be referenced under the same thing. To avoid this, write a "marker" under ref= to give the different references. For example, "ref=Dark Samus 1" for the first logbook entry and "ref=Dark Samus 2" for the second entry (such cases will probably be taken care of by staff or an experienced user). It is automatically set to "Logbook [Entry Name]" and can be used later on in the page as such.
