Hello everyone! My name is Sir Wellington. I've read guides on Mobafire for years, but never was active in the community till now. I'm in Silver IV currently (was Gold III last season...Season 5 placements were cruel) and my brother got me hooked all the way back in the beginning of Ye Olde Season 2.

I'm currently writing a Xin Zhao top lane guide, with the goal of making it the best and most thorough XZ guide on Mobafire. (Maybe just a little ambitious.) I'd love to connect with other guide makers out there and get all the feedback and help that I can (already read jhoijhoi's awesome guide; it's the reason I'm writing this).

Any wisdom to share?

Welcome oh Zhao one.

My personal suggestion is for you to write the guide so thoroughly that, even if the people who'll actually read and benefit from it (newer players) are getting fed concepts they cannot understand, you can still please the first mobafire guide voters: regulars who will probably learn 0 from the guide and have conflicting opinions amidst themselves over runes or itemization, but since they're all above-average elo they'll be certain they're the ones who are correct ^_^

Or make it simple and to the point and call it something like "How to Xin Zhao in 3 minutes"
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

Welcome to mobafire <3

Look at some of the top guides, ask yourself: What do I like about this guide, what do I dislike about this guide?

Feel free to steal anyones ideas on coding, structuring or explaining as long as you do not directly copypaste it. If you really like a certain piece of a guide you do want to directly copy (like a picture or a graph or whatever), ask the guidewriter for permission.

Finally some basic things:
1. Make sure you use proper English and grammar;
2. Make the explanations clear, complete and easy to read, if you can;
3. A tactical section is just as important, if not more important, as all the build chapters together;
4. Use a catchy title and a well-structured cheatsheet to get some attention;
5. Once your guide is published and has some public attention, you will likely get critique. Try to always be friendly to the readers even if you disagree with their point of view.
Change is gooooood

I'm by no means a coding expert but I don't think you can change size, you can only center/uncenter it.

Nah that's wrong, you can indeed size it.



The trick is to set both the height value and the width value, setting one but not the other wont resize it.
