This is the Manual of Style for Angry German Kid Wiki, in this page, just like the guidelines there are also rules about the style that articles must generally have!

Before doing a reorganization, please do not do any reorganization and cleanup of wikitext on the wiki unless you are fixing things to follow this style guideline.

Writing style

  • Upcoming information should be written in future-tense. If the following information describes anything that happened in the past, it's recommended to write the following articles in past or present tense.
  • Scripts should be written in an in-universe style, and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events.
  • When writing a text, make sure it doesn't look like a wall of text (otherwise the abuse filter may block you, however this doesn't include bullets). If you don't make enter spaces after some sentences, this can make reading difficult, so it's best to press Enter after each sentences (one time in Visual mode or two times in source mode) to make reading more confortable.
  • Articles shouldn't have a negative point of view (like saying that the parodist is bad, etc), because this violates one of our policies. And will get you blocked for a week or longer if the change isn't reverted in time.

WikiText style

  • Headers should be in the form == Header ==, not the form ==Header==. This only applies to articles, image pages use == Summary == automatically and talkpages are free form and no changes should ever be made to header style.
  • Things like [[Leonard Slikk|Leonard Slikk]] and [[Leonard Slikk|leonard slikk]] are pointless if the title looks almost identical to the matching page, only [[Leonard Slikk]] should be used.
    • To avoid this mistake, correct it in source mode.
  • Don't bypass redirects using things like [[Leopold|Leopold Slikk]], make use of the redirect properly with [[Leopold Slikk]] or [[Leopold Slikk|Leopold]].
  • The first header must appear ONLY after the first information, NOT BEFORE IT!
  • Shortened date formats can be optionally used in pages, however it shouldn't be used!

Common improper style changes

  • Do not add last names to links unless you have a valid reason to do so (full character name has not been used earlier in the article). Full names should not be abused to bypass redirects.
  • Do not change page numbers in ref tags to have a leading zero. Going around the wiki and changing 3 to 03 despite most pages sticking to 3 does not improve the wiki at all and just adds pointless edits, just stick with 3.
  • Do not write the first letter of a character's name in lowercase. The first letter of a character's name should always be capitalized.
  • Do not place punctuation inside the quotation marks. The correct placement is outside. Example: "AGK plays Unreal Tournament".
  • When editing, do not use more than one question mark or exclamation point in a row. One is all that is ever needed.
    • However, this doesn't apply to transcripts, quotes, comments and message walls.
  • Do not use present tense in articles, unless you are referring to something that is happening in the present.
  • Do not add captions to all images in gallery pages. (only some images should have captions)
  • Do not use international native language spelling or grammar. As we mentioned in the GuidelinesAngry German Kid Wiki uses the english language. Just like the wiki, angry german kid parodists commonly make English/American parodies, so therefore American/British English spellings and grammar conventions should always be used.

Specific article guidelines

Citations, links

Note that sourcing your content properly is very important (see Content rule #1). When sourcing your content, you should add a link near the text and wrap it in ref tags. The code should look like in the following example.

<ref>YT LINK</ref>

To understand where should it be placed, see the following example.

Mrs. Sukzcox is Leopold's teacher who first appeard in episode 2 of AngryGermanKid82's series <ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZhrUgzkKg0</ref>. She also appears in episode 7 of TheKewlOne96's series<ref>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCEmnl6xMTY</ref>.

<references />
