The Manual of Style is a guide that shows how articles on the wiki must be written. Please remember to apply these guidelines when you write articles on the wiki.
Write in third person
Every encyclopedia is written in third person. This is because it helps the writing stay focused on facts and evidence instead of personal opinion. And don't use first person pronouns (like I, me, my, mine, myself, we, us, our, ours, and ourselves).
There is no NPOV here
- "That is a laudable goal. Unfortunately, the scope of WP:NPOV has been expanded far beyond its original intent, and it is now used to require that all articles be not just neutral and fair, but humorless and boring. Wikipedia even includes a notice in its Humor template warning users that this template should never appear in an article because articles should contain only factual and encyclopedic information."
- ―Transformers Wiki, being against NPOV
Thats what we can say.
Add images to provide context
Images add color and context to articles. Every article here should have at least one.
Trivia sections are interesting notes about a subject. While interesting, please be reminded that
- Trivia that is basically common knowledge doesn't count. Seriously.
- Trivia should not be an opinion of the subject or a personal note about the subject
We don't follow Wikipedia's NPOV policy. But we need some more context on what humor is allowed, so we added this section.
No normie shit
By cancer we mean bullshit that spreads so fucking fast (like Ugandan Knuckles) that it becomes annoying.
Ensure that the humor is understandable
By understandable then it should be easily understood by palaeofags (like us) or DinoTubers (like those kids)
Ensure that the humor and information are balanced
A perfect example of this is page on Generation 1 Wheelie on the Transformers Wiki. Its funny, yet informative.
THERE ARE NO PROTAGONISTS OR ANTAGONISTS
THE SERIES COVERED HERE ARE DOCUMENTARIES, NOT SOME SOAP OPERA OR SOME ACTION FILM.
