Structure of an article[edit]


All crew articles must have this infobox:

|name= Name
|image= Image
|gender= Male or Female
|job= Main role(s)
|birthdate= If full date, and still alive, use <code>{{birthdate|year|month|day}}</code>
|deathdate= If full birth and death date, use <code>{{deathdate|death year|month|day|birth year|month|date}}</code>
|status=Active, Inactive or One time

The main part of the article will be the credits section. Each credited role should have it's own section. If there are a large number of credits, then a scroll box should be used.

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.


  • If the article is lacking information, then add {{Crew stub}} to the end of the article.
  • Every crew's talk page should have {{Talkheader}} followed by {{Article Style Guide Crew}}.
