This is for our wiki, but not a wiki in general. For a simplified version of our rules and style, please see this page.

Style of PokéFanon

  • Page Style
    • Make sure your article uses one of the PokéFanon:Official Categories if at all possible.
    • Proper grammar is imperative.
    • Please make your pages follow a reasonable organizational pattern.
    • Pages under 50 words should have a note saying that the article is meant to be short or is under construction.
      • These pages are tagged as {{stub}} if they are missing either an {{Under Construction}} or {{shorty}} tag.
      • If an article is short, but is complete, please replace the {{stub}} with {{shorty}}.
    • You must include a {{Rating}} on your page if it contains violence or sexual content.
      • A page may not contain sexual content unless inside {{censor}}.
      • Violence is allowed so long as the page includes the {{violence}} template as well as a rating.
      • No use of curse words in excess without using {{censor}} notation.
  • Page Ownership
    • Articles are not communal. They and owned by the creator, except when specifically named as joint, communal, or canon at the top!
      • Adding {{Property}} on your pages can come in handy.
    • Individual pages are owned by the creator unless otherwise stated. If you wish to have a page under the same title, place your name in parenthesis after the title on a new page.
    • You shouldn't edit other's pages without permission, bar maintenance and consistency edits, which include adding categories.
    • If a page is adopted, the adopter can edit at will. They will become the owner as soon as 30% of the original content is changed or added.
  • Theories
    • Theories can be posted on a canon page under your own section.
    • You may also post theories on a standalone page as long as you include the page in Category:Theories.
  • Roleplays
    • Roleplays should have a character section and something saying who to contact to join.
    • If your roleplay has no Pokémon in it, it does not belong here.
    • For Non-Pokémon roleplays, make them here.
    • Contact an experienced rollplayer if you have questions.
    • Include the roleplay in a roleplay category, such as Category:Roleplays.
  • Userspace and talkspace
    • User pages can be all lengths and not be considered stubs. No mature content. Please keep edits to them under 15% of your total.
    • However, if you feel a page is unfit for the mainspace as of yet, please DO NOT make the incomplete page into a blog post. That's only for community fun-ness! Use user sub-pages instead. User:You/example. Otherwise, incomplete mainspace articles are OK, with an appropriate incompletion template or {{shorty}}.
    • We have a tradition of preserving all talk pages in full for record purposes; please do not remove messages.
      • If you feel a talk page is too long, please ask an administrator for an archive.
  • Templates
    • Please do not fool around with templates if you don't know what you're doing. If you must, please use your sandbox.
    • Improvements to templates are welcome, but please ask an admin first for those that are widely used.
    • Do not create new templates instead of asking for an improvement of an old one if it exists.
  • General style and licensing
    • You shouldn't copy from ANY other website unless you have the owner of that websites permission.
      • Also, art must be used with permission from the author and appropriate credit.
  • Forum
    • Threads should have a clear purpose and a topic to discuss.
    • Forum threads are not a blog substitute.
    • Threads MUST be placed in the correct board. The board description is on the main forum page.
    • If a board is placed incorrectly, it must be moved. The creator of the thread will be issued a warning by an admin.
  • Files
    • Please include the proper licensing template.
      • Get permission and give credit to images you did not create! (follow all copyright laws)
    • Please check PokéFanon:Duplicate Images before uploading.
