Something about lanes from the Author's FAQ.<ref name="faq-lanes" />

A good convention to follow when naming your <ref> tag is "whatIsTheSource-whatIsGettingCited".

Quote Box

To separate some text with italics and a box (possibly a long quotation), the Box template can be used:

{{Box|Hello!}}

will result in the following text:

Hello!

Please make sure you cite quotations of copyrighted material.

Spoilers

Before posting information from books which some readers may not have read yet, a spoiler warning should be provided. The Spoiler template can be used:

{{Spoiler|[[Traitor's Knot]]}}

will result in the following text:

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from Traitor's Knot.

For an entry which may have information from multiple books, the text "multiple books in the series" can be put in the Spoiler tag. Each paragraph following the tag should begin with the specific book being spoiled.
