This is the D.Gray-man Encyclopedia manual of style page. Please follow this policy to create any article pages at the way we want them to have.



Above each article pages there are amboxes that shows warnings for different kind of reasons. As contributor you can add them:

  • The Spoiler, if you didn't reach far in the series and don't want to read it before you read it in the manga or anime, then only read until which arc you are.
  • The Stub for an article uncompleted.
  • The Ref Lack for an lack of references.

  • Quotes – Characters that shootout important sayings, towards others or regular.
  • References – Source of where the information got tagged by <ref></ref> tags. This section must be insterted like this: <small><references /></small>.

Important Notes

  • Do not add any "font family spans" or spans that makes the letters more clearer. The reason is that it is hard for newcomers to edit the article pages that they love to edit, and so doing it, is just ruining it for them.
  • Do not leave the page blank or make any minor editing, the pages that you have created will be deleted.
  • Do not create a fan page or article pages containing fan images.
  • Do not create a gallery in each article pages.
  • Do not create a gallery page to show of images of a certain character of etc.

Writing Style

  • Articles should be written in British English, not US English.
  • Articles should be written in past-tense, not present or future tense.
  • We do not add "In Chapter ?? was said that" or "In Episode ??", we are referencing the event.
  • We also doesn't add literally texts coming from the manga itself, that makes the pages more childish instead of serious or complex.
  • Articles should be written in an in-universe style, and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events.
  • If you use the word "current" anywhere in a phrase to refer to something, you likely wrote it the wrong way.

Wikitext Style

  • Do not make links like: [[allen walker|allen walker]] or [[allen walker|allen]], make redirect links pages.
  • Do not bypass redirects as like [[Allen|Allen Walker]] just only [[Allen]].
  • If you want to send any link to wikipedia, then do it like this [[wikipedia:page|page]], instead of doing it like this: [ page]
