This page is all about the Code Geass Wiki.

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

Code Geass Wiki:Layout Guide - guide to layout and structure of articles.

As you know, all wikis have a manual of style which they follow in order to maintain clean and neatly organized articles. Code Geass Wiki has a style that it uses to keep pages looking in a similar fashion. Below are some of the guidelines that we use here for such purposes. 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 as if the Code Geass world was the real world. For example, "episodes or chapters" should not be referred to in a sentence. These articles include all character, location, abilities articles. Basically, any article that has information that is based around the contents of the site is an in-universe article.

Pictures and VideoEdit

ContentEdit

Official LanguageEdit

The content of this wiki is expressed in English. This is an English language wiki and all edits are expected to be carried out in English (with exception to the Japanese, Spanish and German content required via technique, powers or skill names determined by the content of the series). This includes articles, forum posts, blogs and talk pages. If a users second language is English and they are not apprised of correct grammar and sentence structure we can only ask that you have someone help you with the content you wish to provide here as editing will be extremely difficult if you can not properly understand or converse with others in the community. Such edits would likely end up undone as they cannot be understood. There are various Code Geass Wikis which are done in other languages that may be more toward what non-native English speakers are looking for (German, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Japanese and Vietnamese).

TriviaEdit

The Trivia section is for actual relevant proven facts related to the article. Fan speculation and “what ifs/maybe” as well Junk Trivia type of information is not to be included in this section.

Talk PagesEdit

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

QuotesEdit

The quotes section is for relevant quotes that showcase the character's personality or personal feelings. Not for random words that anyone could have said in the same situation. Also while there is cussing in Code Geass, it is only necessary to use it in the quotes section in use with relevant quotes. Adding non-relevant quotes with random cuss words and or just putting down random cuss words that may have been said is not acceptable.

TranslationsEdit

When dealing with the translation of terms on the site we deal in translation of only certain terms. Only Items and techniques are commonly listed in the native language that the series provides. While predominately Japanese some do exist in Spanish and German respectively. As far as character names and titles the western structure as well as the English translation is all that should be used. Organizations can be either or with the most common and familiar usage being the accepted version.

Page IntegrityEdit

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

Page EditsEdit

  • There is only one format to be used on the site, which a simple paragraph format. The formats of other styles including tiered or numbered styles are to complex and prone to disorder and are not supported here.
  • Please refrain from adding ambiguous content to the articles. While there is possibly more reason to believe where the information is going to lead, until confirmed it is not supported. In other words while we as users may have a reason to logically believe where a story is going or what someone in the story will do, we in fact do not know until it has happened. We are not the author's let Kubo reveal things at his own pace.

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.

Appearances in Other MediaEdit

  1. All information from Code Geass movies and video games that conflicts with the main canon established by both the manga (and supported by the anime) will be paced the Appearances in Other Media sections of the pages, not in any other section.

Vandalism & LanguageEdit

  1. Removing referenced and proven content from the pages is considered vandalism. (This includes changing back Knightmare names that have been proven to be originally written incorrectly).
  2. This is a encyclopedia of information on Code Geass; we use official and correct terms in explanation on appearance. vulgar and or slang terms are not the preferred forms to use.
  3. This wiki is not tolerant of inappropriate language in the wiki articles or 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). Refer all speculation to the article's talk page or in a forum. Further information can be found in our Speculation Policy.

Source ReferencingEdit

  1. The wiki's information should only come from manga, anime, official guide books, official sites, official material, officially proven interviews and from the producers.
  2. The primary source for references would be the anime. The secondary source is the manga, for example. While manga can be included alongside the anime references to supplement them. Anime always takes precedent in references except in cases of manga only material and to showcase detail that only can be expressed via manga.
  3. Sunrise's word is law. They created the series, anything they make in manga/anime or otherwise in relation to Code Geass is official if it is confirmed (such as seeing it in print). There is no debating on that point.
  4. To add a reference, cite the source of the information inside <ref></ref> tags, such as <ref>''Code Geass'' anime; Season 1; Episode 17</ref>.
  5. Identical references should be combined. By combining identical references, it will help keep the pages clean and orderly. If you do not know how to do this, see Help:Cite.
  6. All references should be in the same style. When in doubt, use your best judgment to make the references match the style of all other references. This will allow the wiki to remain cohesive and consistent.
  • Anime reference example: Code Geass anime; Season 1; Episode 17
  • Manga reference example: Code Geass manga; Chapter 17, Pages 6-7
  • Video game reference example: Code Geass video game; Code Geass: The Lost Colors
  • Site reference example: Code Geass site; http://www.geass.jp/akito/kmf.html

Outside ReferencesEdit

  1. References to other manga/anime series is not encouraged. Code Geass Wiki is exclusively about Code Geass. (While there are similarities between various manga/anime series if you look for them, Code Geass wiki prefers to stand apart from other series and highlight its own qualities.)

Capitalization of wordsEdit

In this wiki many words will appear in capitals letters. Do not change them.

A list of such words are:

Geass
Episode names
Knightmare Frame names
Organization names
Character names
Location names

Creating new pagesEdit

Any user may create a new page; please keep this manual in mind when doing so.

Character pageEdit

Any and all characters in the Code Geass series, whether it is an anime, manga or video game only character, may have his/her own page, as long as they meet the following criteria.

  • Must be involved in the story-line, 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.
  • May have only been referred but never featured. Any character who is mentioned by name and has an impact on the story line.

Groups and OrganizationsEdit

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

LocationsEdit

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

Chapters and EpisodesEdit

When writing a summary for a chapter or an episode, please maintain the same format that all the other episode pages and chapter pages have.

Moving Existing PagesEdit

When renaming page X to Z, we need to track down all the links to X and change them to Z as well, in addition to all incidences of X being used in the articles which are not links. Due to this, and often questionable romanizations of character names, 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 will be blocked.
