The article guidelines offers guidance to structure an article and some overall rules which should be followed by editors to ensure the consistency between articles.

Layout

General

  • An article should start with an infobox where the template is available. See: Infobox Templates.
  • The opening paragraph will be used for a general introduction to the subject and, if available, the subject's name in Japanese. No spoilers will be mentioned in the opening paragraph.
  • The Etymology section (optional).
  • The Gallery section containing images and/or videos uses the <gallery></gallery> markup.
  • The Trivia section (optional).
  • The References section (if applicable).
    • Notes subsection
    • Games subsection
    • Supplementary works subsection
    • Japanese subsection
  • Navigations provide the corresponding Navigation Templates.
  • Directives such as {{DISPLAYTITLE:}} and {{DEFAULTSORT:}} go in the bottom.
    • This is to prevent accidentally placing an extra space at the top of an article when using visual editor.

Specific

    • 2-3 paragraphs summary of the character (optional)

Rules

Infobox data

  • The data in an infobox should be factual. For example, the year of birth and/or age of a character corresponds with official sources. The same applies to blood types, height, the three sizes, likes, dislikes, et cetera.

Infobox image

  • The image in a character infobox should be their official artwork from games that have been released in English, among those the latest chronologically is preferred.
    • If a character has artworks from more than one game in the main series, a gallery may be used to display all incarnations.
    • If a game contains more than one official artworks, only one which is more plot-important or has a neutral stance may be used.
    • If a character has not appeared in the main series, an image from the source that represents the character, such as a spin-off game or a manga, can be used instead.

Gallery order

Keep the gallery organised. All types of images should also be sorted by game and ordered by release. And image in the infobox should not present in the gallery. The preferred order for types of images on the Kiseki Wiki is as follows:

  1. Official artwork
  2. In-game assets
  3. Appearances in cutscenes/visuals/screenshots
  4. Concept art
  5. Portraits
  6. Sprites
