The following are some general guidelines to keep in mind when creating or editing articles.
Article names[edit source]
Use DISPLAYTITLE magic word to change the way the article title appears.
Do not include the type of body the Mind is installed in.
|Sleeper Service||GSV Sleeper Service|
Do not include a person's rank, position, etc.. in the article name.
Point of view[edit source]
Articles about universe object should be written from an in-universe point of view, as if the object was real and the writer lives in the universe. With few exceptions use the past tense as if one were writing a history. Most articles will fit into this category.
An out-of-universe may be used for real life objects, such as when describing the novels themselves.
Proper Nouns[edit source]
For the purposes of the wiki, names of Minds, ships (not ship types), and people are considered proper nouns.
|Correct||What Are The Civilian Applications? is a Continent-class GSV.|
|Incorrect||The What Are The Civilian Applications? is a Continent-class GSV.|
Note that the following is correct because the prefix is an acronym:
|Correct||The GSV What Are The Civilian Applications? is a Continent-class GSV ship.|
Mind. ship names, and ship type names should be italicized.
To create links for ship types with italicization use Template:Sclass.
Please use British English when writing articles.
Please use the metric system when recording measurements whenever possible. There is no need to record alternative Imperial measurements. Readers may conduct the conversion themselves.
Category names should be plural when describing classes of objects (Category:Drones, not Category:Drone) and singular when describing individual objects or themes or activities (Category:Technology, Category:Chelgrian State). (See similar guidelines on other Mediawikis.)
A redirect to a synonymous article should not have categories. Redirects that point to subsections of articles in order to cover minor topics in one article should have categories so they show up in both places. (See similar guidelines on another Fandom wiki.)
