Hi, Kevz:

Just a little heads up. Since we never came up with a manual of style for the site, most users contribute with their own ideas, and if they catch up, somehow are accepted as the format most users will follow. However, there are some ideas that because of their frequent usage have become more or less a staple here, and I thought you might find interesting these few tips I'll list next. I'll try my best not to make you read long articles, but some of them are just written that way. However, you may find them interesting and enjoyable as long as you red them one at a time:

Naming conventionsEdit

  1. Naming Conventions - To know the proper names items, enemies, etc. should be named.
  2. List of Damage Types by Game - To know how each attribute or element is referred to in each game.

Files and ImagesEdit

Underscores should always be removed from files' names (mainly images), and the syntax: [[File:NAME.png]] should always be used over [[Image:NAME.png]].

For example, instead of leaving an image as:

[[Image:Celia_Cruz_is_the_daughter_of_Celia_Fortner_and_Soma_Cruz.png]]

...you should change it to:

[[File:Celia Cruz is the daughter of Celia Fortner and Soma Cruz.png]]

Writing ArticlesEdit

You should avoid using the second person while writing an article. This means basically trying not to use the term "you", and keep your text as informal as possible.

SectionsEdit

Most galleries and sections should be arranged in the order each title was released. Be sure to check this link for a list of most games and the year they were released:

And as for the order sections are arranged within each article, I always follow this arrangement:

  • [Head Quote]
  • [Summary]
  • Origins
  • General Information (Description, Overview, Background)
  • Game Description (In-Game Description)
  • Appearances (Game Specific Information)
  • Quotes
  • Enemy Data
  • Soul Data
  • Item Data
  • Additional Information (Notes)
  • Gallery
  • Videos (External Videos)
  • Background Music (Music)
  • Trivia
  • Related Locations
  • Related Products
  • See also
  • References
  • External Links
Note: Titles in parentheses are alternative names for that section, if they fit better.

Hope I was of any help. Keep up the good work!
