Editing Policy

Basics

  • While editing articles, please use American-English.
  • It is much preferred that second and third-person points-of-view are used within articles.

Linking

  • To prevent over-linking, please only link to a page once under a heading.
  • In source editor, ensure that plural word-links are used as following to reduce page size:
[[Barbarian]]s
rather than
[[Barbarian|Barbarians]]

Shortening links

  • Remember to use the {{H}}, {{B}} and {{C}} templates to link to pages ending in "/Home Village", "/Builder Base" or "/Clan Capital" respectively to reduce page size:
{{H|Cannon}}
rather than
[[Cannon/Home Village|Cannon]]
  • Use the {{MagicItem}} template when linking to a specific magic item:
{{MagicItem|Training Potion}}
rather than
[[Magic Items/List#Training Potion]]

Organization

  • The order of common sections in articles should follow this format:
    • Summary Heading
    • Strategy Heading
      • Offensive Subheading
      • Defensive Subheading
    • Upgrade Differences Heading
    • History Heading
    • Gallery Heading
    • Trivia Heading
      • Comparisons Subheading
    • (Statistics section)
    • References Heading
    • (Navigation templates)

Media Placement

  • Please avoid adding images under certain headings, such as under summary, strategy and trivia headings unless they are used in context of a point made within them.
  • Do not place images already in the upgrade differences section that is near the top of the page in galleries.

Spoilers

  • Articles about upcoming content should be marked with the Spoiler template. This can be done as seen below. Do note any existing articles should not contain upcoming content.
{{Spoiler}}

Time and Date

  • For the best clarity, always use this format when using a date within in an article:
<month- name> <day- numeral>, <year>
For example:
August 2, 2012
