The Manual of Style is a format layout that we here at Midnight, Texas Wiki designed in effort to provide visual representation on how each page created on this wiki should be presented.

Articles

When creating a page, all users are expected to follow the guideline down below:

  • The first appearance of the article's title on the page should be in bold text.
  • If the article is incomplete, then a {{Stub}} template should be added.
  • Articles containing possible spoilers should have the {{Spoilers Notice}} template at the top of the page.
  • Words that are titles of additional articles within the wiki should be linked only on their first occurrence in that section.
  • Minor Characters that have appeared three or more times should have an individual article.
  • Guest Characters are typically given individual articles unless otherwise noted at an Admin's discretion.
  • Any deviations should first be consulted with an Admin.
