    Styles and Standards

    This page is to list all possible editing guidelines that should define how editors go about creating certain kinds of pages, as well as other information pertaining to editing this wiki.

    Should any of these guidelines be changed, please update this page. Use the comment section to discuss these guidelines.

    If you're new to Wiki editing, please check out this helpful guide on the Wiki.

    The Simplified Ruleset[edit]

    • When in doubt, take it to the comment section. If you discuss changes on the page's talk (or discussion) before you make them, you should reach consensus faster.
    • Decent edit summaries and clear, transparent explanations are appreciated.
    • Assume good faith in edits.
    • Sign your posts on talk pages using ~~~~. This gets replaced by your username and timestamp when you hit 'Publish'.
    • Use the preview button. It helps prevent edit conflicts and mistakes.

    Main Space Articles[edit]

    Standard Monster Articles[edit]

    See: Akaname, Alp

    Most monster articles added to the wiki will follow the above formatting scheme with little deviation. The contents of a typical monster article include: an infobox, the encyclopedia entry, Kenkou's notes taken from Monster Girls Redux (translated English), translator notes if present, an image gallery, and a reference section. In some cases, monster girl articles will include more than shown in the "new" style so a more comprehensive version has been provided below.

    Comprehensive Monster Articles[edit]

    See: Hellhound, Alp/Extra

    Uncommonly a monster article will require special formatting to accommodate extra information not typical of regular typical. Extra elements in a comprehensive article include: an additional segment for extra info from Kenkou Cross, a subspecies listing, a trivia listing, and caption images featuring the monster girl in question. It's unlikely that any one page will use all of these additional elements so pick and choose the pieces you need from the template linked above. Even still, some pages require unique formatting (i.g., Elf, Dwarf) which should be handled on an individual basis.

    Item Articles[edit]

    See: Corruption Fruit, Weresheep Wool

    Most item articles added to the wiki will follow the above formatting scheme with little deviation. The contents of a typical item article include: an introductory summary, an infobox, and the encyclopedia entry. See the template for specifics relating to item article infoboxes. An image gallery may be added if the material is provided

    Book Articles[edit]

    See: Monster Girl Encyclopedia I, Monster Girl Encyclopedia World Guide II: Mamono Realm Traveller's Guide

    Most item articles added to the wiki will follow the above formatting scheme with little deviation. The contents of a typical item article include: an introductory summary, an infobox, and the encyclopedia entry. See the template for specifics relating to item article infoboxes.

    Citations[edit]

    In an effort to increase the MGE Wikia's general reliability and authority on all matters MGE related, vigorous citation rules will be in effect. Currently, the Wikia site is rife with unsourced claims, false information, and editor bias from the near non-existent use of proper information sourcing. One of our chief reforms on the new site will be to build a reliable database of information in similar compliance with general Wikipedia operations.

    Citing multiple references for one source[edit]

    Instead of having multiple, copy-pasted references for a singular cited source (citing Monstergirlsredux.com for example), use the ref name function. See the Ochimusha page for a live example of this function in action.
    <ref>...</ref>

    This is how you should write references that are only used once within a single article.

    <ref name="example">...</ref>

    This Is how you should write references the first time they are used in an article where the same source is used multiple times. Name them whatever you want, it doesn't matter as long as it's unique within that article.

    <ref name="example"/>

    Finally, this is how you then repeat that reference without needing to copy-paste the entire reference. Doing so not only saves time and space but also tells MediaWiki to stack the references appropriately.
