To wikify an article is to format it using Wiki markup (wikicode) and add internal links to related articles.

Example of wikifying an article

A user could try making a guild page based on an HTML code version.

Guild stub example

How a page might look after simply being copy/pasted from another web page:

The Shining Strand

<a href="The Shining Strand">The Shining Strand</a> is a rp-pvp guild based on Defias Brotherhood (EU). It is one of the servers oldest guilds and have existed since before day one, with the exception for a few months during it collapsed and later reformed itself.

We try to attend as many rp-pvp events as possible and are deeply rooted in Stormwinds political roleplay and act as one of many law-enforcing guilds.

We can be contacted on our <a href="<a href="http://z3.invisionfree.com/TheShiningStrand/index.php">http://z3.invisionfree.com/TheShiningStrand/index.php</a>?">forums</a>

Another user could come and wikify this article so that it uses wiki style formating and links:

The Shining Strand

The Shining Strand is a RP-PvP guild based on Defias Brotherhood (EU). It is one of the servers oldest guilds and have existed since before day one, with the exception for a few months during which it collapsed and later reformed itself.

We try to attend as many RP-PvP events as possible and are deeply rooted in Stormwind's political roleplay and act as one of many law-enforcing guilds.

We can be contacted on our forums.

The current officers are: Fortesgue, Gahalla, Lephia, Ultisna, Illyena and Niriate.

Another thing to do would be making sure the page is properly categorized.

Here is what the wikicode looks like:
