Wiki Area Guidelines
The following guidelines are focused on the wiki side of the site.
- Don't be afraid to get started. Go ahead, click "edit", it's a wiki!
- Above "General Guidelines" apply.
- Do not call out editors or for lack of content on pages. Wikis are a lot of work and chances are editors are super busy. We are all volunteers (including the admins), so we're working on this wiki in our free time.
- If you see something missing or something inaccurate, please click "edit" and help us. We're always in need of more volunteers.
- When in doubt, take it to the article's talk page, the forums, or ask an expedience editor. We don't bite.
- Big changes (such as deleting sections of articles or removing information from infoboxes) should be run by the community first.
- Editing conflicts: When there is an editing conflict, the involved editors are expected to first try to solve the issue on their own (i.e. stop editing the page in conflict, communicate with each other, and attempt to come to resolution). If they cannot come to an agreement, they should ask a neutral party or an admin to assist. Edit warring, i.e. repeatedly reverting page instead of discussing, is not allowed.
- Do not vandalize the wiki. Examples include adding gibberish, editing text to include falsehoods, removing all content, etc.
- If you see a vandalized page, try to fix it yourself. If you need help, contact an admin. If you see an IP or user regularly vandalize the wiki, notify an admin to ensure action is taken.
- To avoid too many pages, please do not make a page for subjects until you have a few paragraphs worth of text already ready for it.
- For characters, pages can be created for all characters for whom cast member received "starring" or "guest starring" credit. For characters for whom cast member received "co-starring" credit, a page may be created if the character is named and appeared in at least three episodes.
- For cast members, pages can be created for all cast members who received "starring" credit. Pages for cast members who received "guest starring" in seven episodes or "co-starring" in ten episodes may also be created.
- Style Guide for the writing style used on the articles.
- Layout Guide for the layouts used on articles.
- Category Guide for proper categorization of articles.
- Image Policy for uploading images.
