Wikisimpsons:Manual of Style

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

This is an instruction manual that addresses the conventions adopted by Wikisimpsons in writing, titles, articles, and linking. Please read it before you contribute to Wikisimpsons.

Article titles[edit]

Main article: Wikisimpsons: Naming

The conventions for titles dictate that all proper nouns are capitalized, as are all locations, and names unless specifically not capitalized. Any page title that includes a name should not be stored in a biographical format; i.e., "Homer Simpson", not "Simpson, Homer" as the page title for Bart's Dad. In cases where only a first name (Charlie) exists, that should be used as the sole title of the page.

Media names in articles[edit]

Each media type has a different representation:

  • Episodes have speech marks around them, e.g. "Duffless".
  • The Simpsons Movie has italics, as does every other movie and television show.
  • Songs are always in speech marks.
  • Books, games, comics, comic stories are all in Italics.
