Cast & Crew Article

  3. Career (Should highlight all roles, mainly ABC Contributions)
  4. Personal Life (Family, Interest, Views, etc.)
  5. Awards & Honors (If applicable)

Location Articles

At this time, we do not accept new articles about locations within a series.

Song Articles

At this time, we do not accept new articles about songs within a series.

Formatting

Bold is only used once in articles, and that is the first time the title is mentioned. The title should always be the first part of your introductory sentence. (i.e. Example Actors is an american actor and writer, Example is the third episode of season 4 of ex...) Italics are used when you mention the title of another series, (i.e The Goldbergs, The Middle, Modern Family, etc.) do not user them when mentioning episodes, instead use quotes. (i.e. "Thanksgiving Episode", "A Heck of a Ride: Part Two")

Gallery's

Typically gallery's should be found at the bottom of a character or actor page page, however if a galley has more than ten entries, it may be moved to a separate page. For example if the Page in questions was Example Actor the gallery page would be located at Example Actor/Galley. Gallery for TV Show's and Episodes should always be in a separate page regardless of how many images it has. Remember this is a wiki, not a gallery hosting site, therefore gallery's are not our main priority and you must respect the wiki policy.
