This is the official layout, that should be used throughout the Reign Wiki. To maintain a consistent, clean and easy-to-use wiki. This guide will help users understand the basic layout for each page and the overall layout. Of course there are always articles that need a more complex and special layout, these cases are noted below.

If you have any questions or suggestions don't be afraid to contact any of our Admins!


Basics

General

  • We use American English, since Reign is an American show. (i.e. color instead of colour)
  • Articles should be written in expository writing. Meaning unbiased and informative.
  • Try your best to use proper spelling and grammar. However you will not get in trouble for this no one is perfect.
  • Article names should be in bold. Although you must ask an admin before creating a new page. (i.e. Mary Stuart)
  • Do not write in all capitals. There is no reason for any article to be written this way. It is also harder to read and not aesthetically pleasing.
  • All infoboxes, apart from the episode infobox. Should have this:
    *
    Before the information.

Linking

  • If you write something and there is an article that exist on this subject link it. To do so, do this:
[[name of article]]
  • Don't link the same article multiple times. The first time used in a different section or paragraph (if it is a summary) or a page.
  • Don't link the name of a page to itself in a paragraph. Bold the name instead.
  • Use only a characters first name when linking. (i.e. You don't need to write Mary Stuart every single time.). Only use both the given name and surname if there is more than one person of that name in the article you are writing. To do so, do this:
[[full name|given name]]
  • When you are linking an episode page at the beginning of a character summary. Use Italics surrounding the link, followed by a coma. To do so, do this:
''[[Pilot]]'',

Citing Sources

  • External sources should always be sourced. To do so, you must place this after the information:
<ref>[websise link]</ref> 

You must also add this to the end of the page:

==References==
{{Reflist}}

Tense

  • Use the present tense when referring to most articles.
  • The only time the past tense should be used is if the character is deceased.

Stubs

  • If you don't have enough information on an article or you stumble across an unfinished article. Add this, to the very top of the page:
{{Incomplete}}
