This page describes one of Mantipedia's policies and guidelines.

Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page.

The following guide is adapted from the document written and executed by Memory Alpha.

The wiki format can often be demanding or unfamiliar – and downright confusing! It is easy to commit faux pas – anyone might make one, either a newcomer or a veteran. This list of mistakes is compiled, not to embarrass anyone, but to provide some guidelines to help everyone avoid making these mistakes in the future.

  1. Blanking page content. If you discover a page with non-canon or other false content, don't delete it! Use the article's talk page to discuss errors.
  2. Leaving the edit summary empty. Always fill the summary field!
  3. Making duplicate articles. Always do a quick search to see if anyone else has already created an article on your subject. Be sure to consider alternate possible names – there's a chance that the article simply has a different name than you were expecting.
  4. Misnaming articles. It is always helpful to check the naming conventions first before you create a new page. If you're uncertain about what to name a page, that page should make your decision easier.
  5. Treating talk pages like a chat room. The talk pages are intended to be used exclusively for the discussion of issues related to the writing of the TRMN Wiki's articles.
