Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki

This is the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Wiki Manual of Style. This manual lists how all other articles should look, be created and edited. If an article does not adhere to the Manual of Style, please place the template on it, or fix it accordingly.

Article Editing[]

Article Titles and Headings[]

Article titles and headings should have the first word capitalized, along with every other word that isn't an article (example: "the", "a/an", "and").

Spelling[]

This is a North American English wiki, so only English (and American spellings) will be used in all articles, editing, pictures, and categories.

Lead section[]

The lead section of every article should start with the title of the article in bold and a short sentence related to it.

Character Article Editing[]

Articles about character should be ordered in the following manner:

  • Appearance
  • Personality
  • History
    • Sub-Heading: Early Life
    • Sub-Heading: Cloudy: The Series
    • Sub-Heading: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
    • Sub-Heading: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
  • Trivia
  • Gallery
  • References
  • Site Navigation (the SiteNav navbox should go here)

Main Image[]

The main Image is the image in the character infobox. It should be a full-body render of the character, or, if such a render is not available, a clear full-body image of the character.

Notability and Relevance[]

It is not necessary for a character page to contain every section listed above. However, each section should contain at least a paragraph of information, or a bulleted list with three or more pieces of information. Information should also not be repeated unnecessarily and should be written under the relevant section (e.g. descriptions of a character's outfit should be written under Appearance, not Trivia).

TV Episode Article Editing[]

Articles about episodes in TV shows should be ordered in the following manner:

  • Synopsis
  • Plot
  • Trivia
  • Quotes

Main Image[]

The main Image is the image in the episode infobox. It should be the title screen of the episode.

Notability and Relevance[]

The Plot section should be the longest section of the page, containing information about characters, inventions, and major events. Information in the Trivia section should only be notable pieces of information such as the first appearance of a character, relevance to other pieces of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs media (such as cameos or Easter Eggs), or plot holes.

Images and Galleries[]

Images should be of reasonable quality where possible (no pictures of your TV screen) and have a short caption describing the image. Images in article pages should be kept to a minimum, with 1 image for every 2-3 paragraphs of text. Article images must not distract from the text and should be resized accordingly. Animated images and video links should not be added to articles but instead should be added to a gallery.

Images in galleries should have clear differences in content (lighting, emotion, attire, location, etc.) and should not exceed 10 images. If a gallery exceeds 10 images, a gallery page should be created with sufficiently organized sections.

Adding images[]

Every image uploaded to the wiki should be placed in an article or gallery. Unused images and files will be deleted.

Files should have a file name that makes it easily searchable. Descriptions of images are not required but are highly encouraged. If more than 3 images in a row are added to a page, they should be placed in a gallery.

Linking[]

Links[]

Links should be about the main article itself, rather than to a redirect page.

Overlinking[]

Links to any article should only appear once per article. If it is seen once, it should not appear again.

Italicizing, Bolding and Underlining[]

Links should not have any sort of emphasis.

Templates[]

User pages should not have templates that automatically add categories to them, or templates that should normally be on articles. They will be removed when found.

Deletion[]

If someone places a deletion tag, it is a signal for discussion. If no one attempts to justify the page's existence within 48 hours, the page may be deleted. The page may be restored, but not without discussion.
