FANDOM


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.

Page Title

The title should be written with the full official name of the character/object/place.Except for article with overly long appelations (exemple: The Gateskeeper).

If no official name is given, the most fitting name is left to the decision of the page creaor and may be changed afterwards by an administrator following a discussion with the other contributors.

The page name should be written in lowercase letter except for the first letter of the title (in uppercase letter) as well as the first letters of all the lexical words (that is to say: the nouns, the adjectives, the adverbs and the verbs).

To avoid confusions between ambiguous titles, a precision may be added at the end of the title between parenthesis. In this case, everything between the parenthesis should be in lowercase letters.

Character names should be written in the english language order: that is to say first the first name and then the family name.

Sections

Headers

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.
  • The Name Conjecture for a character whose proper named was not given by an official source and thus the wiki had to choose the appelation itself.

ry Outline – Short outline of the character history.

The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.

  • Navigation – Add here the navigation templates which the character is related to. For instance, a Black Order member should have the Black Order template here.

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. Except for the trivia.
  • 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: [http:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/page page]
