FANDOM


This is a page that all editors should look towards when making articles relating to characters. It describes the basics and formatting users should try to follow when making character pages. Drake and Grayson are two great examples of character articles.

It can take a while for new users to get used to the formats of the wiki, so please use this page as a reference. If you feel that anything is wrong/should be changed with these guidelines, please leave a message on an administrator's talk page

CharacterboxEdit

Characterboxes display the basic information of a character such as the characters name, affiliation homeworld, and occupation. A characterbox template should be added to every character article. You can do this by manually selecting it from the "add other templates" option on the editing bar under the heading "Templates", or you can simply add {}. All information should be filled out if possible. If you are not quite sure how to use a template, skip this step and another editor may add one in later.

IntroductionEdit

Always start your article with an introduction to the character you are editing about. An introduction may include:

  • Nationality
  • Name (in bold)
  • What organization the character belongs to
  • The character's distinguishing personalities and characteristics

AppearanceEdit

It is advised to add an appearance section to character articles. This section should describe the physical appearance of the character and the gear/weapons that the character uses.

Episode contentEdit

The largest part of a article is usually the role the character plays in the television series/ Web Series and other appearances. Describe what the character does or what battles the character participated in. Sections should be divided by episode name and not battle or event.

CategoriesEdit

A character will always fall into a certain category, usually more than one. Please read the Category Policy for more information on categories.

ExpansionEdit

Two templates, {{Expand}} and {{Stub}}, are used on articles to show that they need to be expanded. But they are different:

  • Expand template is used when there is info (equipment, history, appearances), but is too short or bad, and the Stub template is used when almost no info is established (only name, infobox, and appearances).
  • Expand templates can be used for section of articles, and stub articles cannot.
