Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it's found that a policy restricts something that the reason the policy was created didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.

This is the official Naruto Fanon Wiki Manual of Style. It is based on Narutopedia's own Manual of Style, since that is the site we imitate style-wise.

Required Forms

Forms are an essential part of the creating process here on Naruto Fanon Wiki. These forms are REQUIRED to be used, as stated in the sites Manual of Style, but they also add a high level of professionalism to your pages.

However, given that there are various issues with the Forms as-of-currently, an alternative solution to the following would be:

Section Order

Characters

  • (main) - The beginning section with general intro. This is the one without a section name.
  • Appearance - Physical description of the character.
  • Personality - Information on the character's personality.
  • Background - Historical and background information on the character.
  • Abilities - Information on the characters special abilities and techniques.
    • Jinchūriki Transformations/Powers
    • Kekkei Genkai - Specific Kekkei Genkai abilities.
    • Taijutsu
    • Ninjutsu
    • Genjutsu
    • Nature Transformation
  • Other info - Things like Naruto's history with the Demon fox should be placed in this area. Or perhaps made as a subsection of an appropriate section.
  • Part in the Story - Section container, the characters actions within the story would be here.
    • Part I
      • Some arc
    • Part II
      • Some other arc
  • Trivia - Trivia items. Organized in list format using * at the start of the line (Stylistically a space after that * would be nice.) Things not worthy of being in trivia include things such as: "That X is the first Y to do Z." or "That X is the only Y to do Z." etc.
  • Quotes - Character quotes. The character shouting out a Jutsu name shouldn't be considered a quote though. Organized in the same way as Trivia.
  • References - Just the ==References== section with a <references/> tag below it. To collect the <ref></ref> tag info in the page. Individual bits of info should be tagged with specific citation other than just the general sources section.

Villages

  • (main) - The beginning section with general intro. This is the one without a section name.
  • History - Historical and background information on the village.
  • Events - Major events that have taken place in the village since the present time.
  • Landmarks - Important locations in the village.
  • Clans - Shinobi clans that reside in the village.
  • Trivia - Trivia items. Organized in list format using * at the start of the line (Stylistically a space after that * would be nice.) Things not worthy of being in trivia include things such as: "That X is the first Y to do Z." or "That X is the only Y to do Z." etc.
  • References - If applicable.
  • See also - If applicable.

Countries

  • (main) - The beginning section with general intro. This is the one without a section name.
  • History - Historical and background information on the village.
  • Events - Major events that have taken place in the village since the present time.
  • Villages - Villages within that country.
  • Landmarks - Important locations in the country.
  • Trivia - Trivia items. Organized in list format using * at the start of the line (Stylistically a space after that * would be nice.) Things not worthy of being in trivia include things such as: "That X is the first Y to do Z." or "That X is the only Y to do Z." etc.
  • References - If applicable.
  • See also - If applicable.

Article Property

Writing Style

  • Articles should be written in English.
  • Articles for living characters should be written in present tense.
    • Articles for deceased characters should be written in past tense.
    • Articles should never be written in future tense.
  • Articles should be written in an in-universe style, this includes calling characters by what they were called at this point in the story, and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events.
  • Articles should be written in the third person.
  • When listing information, and someone has been replaced by someone else in the plot, the person who was chronologically first should be listed first.
  • Japanese translations should be done properly. Do not just slap two words together, and some random katakana/kanji and expect it to pass.
  • Article names should be properly capitalized. Any article names without proper capitalization will be deleted.
    • Word of Caution: Overcome the temptation to use Google translate, or Bing, for any Japanese translations as they are rarely, if ever, accurate. (See the "Outside Links" section below for proper English-Japanese translators).
    • In the same light, do not mix English and Japanese names (ie., "Tony Uzumaki"). Not only do they not translate properly into katakana or kanji, it also makes your character look lazy and not well thought out.

Content

Main article: Naruto Fanon Wiki:Content policy

WikiText Style

  • Headers should be in the form == Header ==.
  • Things like [[chidori|chidori]] and [[Chidori|chidori]] are pointless, only [[chidori]] should be used.
  • Don't bypass redirects using things like [[Sasuke Uchiha|Sasuke]] make use of the redirect properly with [[Sasuke]].

Common improper style changes

  • Do not change "Pain" to "Pein", "Pain" is the correct name.
  • Do not change "Nine-Tailed Demon Fox" or "Nine Tails" to "Kyūbi."
  • Do not change "Hyūga," "Shippūden," or anything to a 'uu' such as "Hyuuga," or "Shippuuden."
  • For "oo," "ou," "uu,' and "ii" we use macrons. Examples: ō, ī, ū.
  • For the Sage Mode and its techniques, we use "Sage" instead of "Hermit."

Consequences

Violations of this policy are punishable. The following method should be followed for carrying out these consequences;

  • First offense: Warning
  • Second offense: Second warning
  • Third offense: Article deletion
  • Fourth offense: 1 week block
  • Fifth offense: 1 month block
  • Sixth offense: 1 year block
