Navboxes and categories[edit]

Many job roles should have a navbox and this should add a category. For a list of current navboxes see Wikisimpsons:Navboxes#Cast & Crew. For a list of categories see Category:Cast and crew.

External links[edit]

All crew member should have an IMDB page, linkable through {{IMDB|link}}, where link is everything past "http:www.imdb.com/". Some may have Wikipedia pages, which is applied through {{Wikipedialink}}. Note that no extra info is needed provided Wikipedia's page share's the same title as ours. Other acceptable links include the person's website and their Twitter page.

Other[edit]

  • Every crew's talk page should have {{Talkheader}} followed by {{Article Style Guide Crew}}.
