These are the guidelines for writing high-quality articles that match the Wiki's standard.

Links

If you mention something that has its own page, link it.

Formats

      This section should be applied when formats are set.

If you are writing an article that has a specific format, you should follow that page's format. This includes elements such as infoboxes and gallery sections.

Headings and Contents

Level 1 headings (<h1> or =[content]=) should not be used. The top level heading being currently used is level 2 (<h2> or ==). Smaller headings can be used.

If the article has 2 or less headings & subheadings, there is no need to place a table of contents. This can be done using __NOTOC__. Same goes for a page that has 10 or more.

Grammar

Only American English is to be used.

If you are not comfortable with English for any reason, please ask an editor who is proficient at English to proofread your edit for you.

Important Grammar Points

Words in titles should all have capital letters besides conjunctions, prepositions, etc... (such as "and", "or", "of", "in", and so on).

If a sentence contains more than one idea, it is a run-on sentence and should be split up. If a sentence contains an incomplete idea, it is a fragment and needs extension or merging with another sentence.

Writing Style

Formal and Technical Language

Subject-specific terminology should be used in all articles. For example,if you are talking about swords, use vocabulary relevant to swords, such as "tang", "blade", or "hilt". Don't just use generic terms like "handle" or "sharp part".

The attitude of the writing must be formal. This means that it should be professional and organized.

Tone

When writing an article, you have to write in third-person. This means that you do not use personal pronouns ("I", "we", "us") or ever use the word "you" in an article. If you wish to address the reader, then say it the way you would in a procedural text using commands, such as "go" or "climb". If it is absolutely needed, you can use "the player" or "one".

Weasel Words

Weasel words are indirect phrases such as "it is said" or "some believe". Instead of saying this, say exactly who it is that says or believes <whatever it is that they believe>.

Acronyms

Do not invent your own acronyms. Only use acronyms when they are used in the games.
