This page is all about the Dragons Rioting Wiki.

Policies listed here are for writing articles. Unless stated, they must be followed across the wiki, without exceptions.

Other important pages to note when editing articles:

Dragons Rioting Wiki:Layouts - a guide to layout and structure for several article types.

Like most wikis, we here at the Dragons Rioting Wiki have a manual of style which we aim to follow in order to maintain clean and organized articles. Below are some of the guidelines we use here to maintain consistency across our articles. Please take your time to read and follow the guidelines as closely as possible as you edit any and all pages.

PerspectiveEdit

  • In-universe: Articles should be written in the present tense, and as if the fictional world of Shinmai Fukei Kiruko-san were the real world. For example, lines such as, "In Chapter 1, Rintaro entered the school," should not be referred to in a sentence if the article is a character, location, or ability article. "Rintaro entered the school," is the appropriate phrasing as it does not mention the event taking place within a chapter. Chapter articles are exempt from this rule except for the plot summary sections.

ContentEdit

Official LanguageEdit

Articles found on this wiki should be written in standard English (both British and American English forms are accepted), this also applies to forum posts, blogs and talk pages. If English is a second language or you just need help understanding how to structure certain sentences or paragraphs, please ask one of the more experienced members to help you through their talk page or in the chatroom.

TriviaEdit

The Trivia section in an article is only for confirmed miscellaneous information, which doesn't fit in with any other section of the article. This can usually be things revealed through chapter notes or supplemental information in volumes. Fan speculation is not permitted.

TranslationsEdit

Being a Japanese manga with no known official English release, translations are currently being taken from a reliable, unofficial source. If the series ever receives an English release, translations will subsequently be taken from the official release.

Talk PagesEdit

The talk page is for conversations on maintenance and article correctness only. General conversations, questions, and speculations are to be placed in forums.

Page IntegrityEdit

  1. Please do not remove the {{-}} template from respective articles, as doing so can ruin the integrity of the article's sections, causing them to run into each other.
  2. Any information users add to an article need to have been either stated or shown in the manga, and is required to be referenced. If it is not referenced, it will be removed.

AbilitiesEdit

In the Abilities section, no speculative comments should be make and all abilities described should be followed by a notable example when possible, as well as referenced like all other information in an article. This section can be split into three subsections, that of Skills, Equipment and Techniques.

SkillsEdit

In the Skills section, things such as strength, speed, durability and weapon/hand-to-hand expertise are noted. When adding these sections, the following standard phrases should be used;

Enhanced Speed: When a character has notable speed.

Enhanced Strength: When a character has notable strength.

Enhanced Durability: When a character is shown to be capable of taking certain attacks without damage.

Expert or Master Hand-to-Hand Combatant: When a character shows notable skill in unarmed combat. In the case of Rintaro, Ryūha Koei Sōgetsu Master is used due to his fighting style having its own official name.

Expert or Master (weapon used): When a character shows notable skill with a particular weapon. In the case of Rino, she would be classified as a Master Swordsman due to using swords with incredible skill, while Makoto would be an Expert Pole-arm User due to using a bisento with moderate skill.

Fan Fiction & Fan ArtEdit

  1. Fan fiction is not permitted at all in any context, though you may place any content in your personal user page as long as it's not offensive.
  2. Fan art is not permitted in any article page. However, certain pictures may be added as long as they are not used in any article other than your own user page. No pornographic images may be added.

Vandalism & LanguageEdit

  1. Removing referenced and proven content from the pages without reason is considered vandalism.
  2. Moving pages without reason or discussion beforehand is also considered vandalism.
  3. This is a encyclopedia wiki; we use official and correct terms in explanation on appearance. Vulgar and/or slang terms are not the preferred terms to use.
  4. This wiki is not tolerant of inappropriate language in the wiki articles, forums, or anywhere else on the wiki. Violators can and most likely will be quickly blocked.

SpeculationEdit

  1. Do not speculate on the article pages. (Meaning if it is not stated or shown and cannot be properly referenced, it is not a fact). Further information can be found in our Speculation Policy.

Creating PagesEdit

Any user may create a new page as long as it follows this manual of style when doing so.

Character pageEdit

In order for a character to have a page, they must meet the following criteria.

  • Must be involved in the storyline, meaning no background characters. In other words, if a character is only seen standing or sitting but does not interact or have any lines, it is not worthy. An exception to this is if a background character is acknowledged by the main cast (as in given a name or referred to), in such case a page may be made.

Groups and OrganizationsEdit

Any group and/or organization may have its own page. When doing so, please provide the name of all known members.

LocationsEdit

Any location may have its own page as long there is some known information about it and it is not a subsection of another location.

Chapters and VolumesEdit

When writing a summary for a chapter, please maintain the same format which all the other chapter pages have. For an example of what chapter page should look like, refer to chapter 1. For more information on the layout, refer to the chapter layout page.

CategorisationEdit

When creating a new page, be sure to put in the proper categories for the article. Examples would be male for male characters, or dragon for the various Dragons in the series. Be sure to check if the category already exists, or that you are naming it correctly before adding one, as we don't want a female and females situation.

Moving Existing PagesEdit

When renaming page A to page B, it is the expectation of the user to track down all the links to A and change them to B, as well as finding all incidences of A being used in the articles which are not links. Due to this daunting process, it is encouraged that article pages may not be moved without discussing it on the relevant article's talk page first.

Before a page move can be initiated, you must present the reasons for your belief behind the move on the article and obtain approval for it before moving the page. If you move an article page without discussing it first, your move will be undone and you will be warned not to do it again. If you persist on moving the article before an administrator approves or without discussing it beforehand, you run the risk of being banned.
