Teen Titans Wiki

The Wiki Editing Guidelines defines how articles in this wiki should be formatted.

Starting off

First time in the wiki? You may refer to the Community Central guidelines here.

Writing conventions

  • Please use American English, as it is the spelling and grammar adopted for the show.
  • Contents should be clear and easy to understand.
  • Only include information that is relevant to the article.
  • Speculations, opinions should never be used in the mainspace articles. Avoid adding content with unknown status (e.g. "The origins of Newfu is unknown"). Please use the Discussions instead.
  • Avoid first- or second-person narratives (e.g. "You can see this at the top-right corner")
  • Do not use shorteners (e.g. Isn't, they're, she's) unless directly quoted from the show/comic.

Linking

Articles should contain links where readers can navigate to related pages. Link an article only once, at its first occurrence.

  • If the link is within this wiki, input [[article name|intended name]]. The "intended name" field is not required if it is the same as the article name.
  • If the link is to another wiki within the Fandom network, input [[w:c:wiki name:article name|intended name]].
  • If the link is to a Wikipedia page, input [[Wikipedia:article name|intended name]].
    • Wikipedia links should only be used in trivia sections, or to define complex terms in an article.
  • For any other external links, input [URL intended name] (e.g. [twitter.com Twitter]).

Formatting

  • In source editing, infoboxes must be placed at the top, while navboxes, categories and interwiki links must be placed at the bottom of the page.
  • Bold the article name and its alternatives at its first occurrence.
  • Use italics when referring to Teen Titans as the show, not the group. Italics should also be adopted on titles of books, shows, songs etc.
  • Include quotation marks on episode titles, comic issues, speeches (e.g. "Betrothed").
    • Never use any other punctuation within quotation marks except in speeches.

Manual of Style

This section specifies how each type of article should be structured. Each bullet points represents a header within the article.

  • Trivia: Other significant points about the crew member
  • External links (if applicable): Only official sites (e.g. IMDb), social networks, and the crew member's official website(s) are permitted.

Galleries

Screenshots used for episode/short/movie galleries must follow the episode title (e.g. Nevermore1.png, Nevermore2.png etc). If you would like to add another screenshot into the gallery, use the next available number or insert a new subset (e.g. Crash54(1).png).

All screenshots must be placed in chronological order, from the start of the episode to the end.

Frame to frame uploads (i.e. 3 or more screenshots from the same scene) are not permitted.

Do not add fan art into gallery pages.

Keep captions to a maximum of 60 characters.

Transcripts

Transcripts show what the characters exactly say in the episode/short/movie, not what you think it should have been said. If you find mistakes in the dialogues (e.g. Spelling errors, or that the dialogue had mistakes in the first place), please use the edit summary to describe the changes. Otherwise, do not attempt to edit the dialogues for any other reasons.

Italics should be used when describing actions. Avoid referencing other shows or use complex terms.

Games

Contents for game articles should include:

  • Plot: A brief recount of what happens in the game, and the objectives of the game.
  • Characters: List of characters featured in the game.
  • Gameplay: How to play the game
