General article guideEdit
- Article title must follow the subject's official name, e.g. [[Lance] instead of "Main Character". It must also be written in singular instead of plural, e.g. "Book" instead of "Books" - exceptions are only when the article is a list, e.g. "List of books". There should not be titles, i.e. "Lance" instead of "Lance the Bad Boy".
- Always include at least a sentence about the subject when starting an article.
- The first sentence should give a brief definition of the article's subject, and the subject has to be written in bold.
- When writing the article content, episode titles should not be written in quotation marks, e.g. Escape To Sherman High.
- The definite article (the) and indefinite articles (a/an) should be avoided in article titles except when they are part of an official title.
- Please write in third person: use "the viewer" instead of "you".
- Linking is limited to the first occurrence of the word or phrase.
What should an article have?Edit
This depends on the page. Some things are meant for some pages.
Each character gets an article, as long as they are important enough. If not, they should be grouped into pages that show all of its inhabitant's traits. Each page of a character should have: (If there is not enough information for all of the following, leave the sections not filled in off of the page and add a Stub template.
- the Infobox with relevant information about the character (see Template:Galaluna for instructions)
- the Appearance and Personality sections to describe their characteristics,
- A Trivia section, describing any popular culture references or other trivia worth noting,
- Any External Links relevant to the character; official, informative resources, shrines, etc.
Place the navigation template related to the character. Also categorize the article accordingly. If the character is in an episode that is currently unaired, use the unreleased template.
Each episode gets an article. It is best not to create too in-depth articles about episodes not released yet (unless information, with references, is provided about said un-aired episode), as the information can change drastically. Each episode page should have:
- An introductory paragraph (or sentence). This should include the title, and a very short tidbit of information.
- A Synopsis section. This should house all the information about the story of the episode.
- A Characters section, for all the characters in said episode. They should all link to their respective pages.
- A Trivia section, detailing any entertaining points of the episode, behind-the-scenes info, or even bloopers.
- a References section. These are not always possible to create, and as such this turns out to be the only optional section.
Use the Episode template, include the titlecard, any other information needed, and finish up the page. Any episode page that is not aired should use the unreleased template and if they do not fit the above standards, should also have the stub template.
When adding a quotationEdit
It's encouraged to have at least a quote in every article. Use the Template:Quote for one-liners. It's best to write the quotations in a "Quote" section, and if there are more than eight quotes available, one is to make a subpage containing quotes.
