This is the official Gakusen Toshi Asterisk Fanon Wiki Manual of Style.

Section Order

Important Note: This is just a general outline. It does not have to be absolutely followed. However, articles with obvious breaks of the Manual of Style will subsequently be deleted. You have been warned.

Characters

  • (main) - The beginning section with general intro. This is the one without a section name.
  • Background - Historical and background information on the character.
  • Personality - Information on the character's personality.

  • References - Just the ==References== section with a <references/> tag below it. To collect the <ref></ref> tag info in the page. Individual bits of info should be tagged with specific citation other than just the general sources section.

Article Property Claims

  • When you create an article, you may place a {{Property}} tag on it, claiming it as your article.
    • If more than one user owns a single article, all involved users will place their property tag.
  • Custom Property Tags should not be much larger than the official property template for collaborative articles. Exceptions are made if the custom template is used for your own creation.

Writing Style

  • Articles should be written in English.
  • Articles for living characters should be written in present tense.
    • Articles for deceased characters should be written in past tense.
    • Articles should never be written in future tense.
  • Articles should be written in an in-universe style, this includes calling characters by what they were called at this point in the story, and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events.
  • Articles should be written in the third person.
  • When listing information, and someone has been replaced by someone else in the plot, the person who was chronologically first should be listed first.
  • Article names should be properly capitalized. Any article names without proper capitalization will be deleted.

Content Policy

Keep in mind that these policies are ultimately guidelines. If it is discovered that a policy restricts something that the policy was created for but didn't intend to restrict, then the policy should be changed.

This is a policy on the content of our articles on Asterisk Fanon Wiki.

Overview

Character Articles

  • Using the title of another character, either from the fanon or canon, is not acceptable unless the title has been used by multiple people.
    • The most viable example for a canon title is the one used by Fan Xinglou, Banyū Tenra. Since it is canonically stated that she is the second Banyū Tenra, it is viable to use this alias again for a fanon character.
  • While characters can certainly take after canon characters, or be based on them, they cannot be carbon copies of them. If your character has the same history, appearance, personality, and abilities as a canon character, or any combination of the four (or very similar personality, appearance, history, and abilities), then you are in violation of this rule. We are a wiki that promotes originality.

Canon is the Standard

Basically, this means what it says. The canon of the Asterisk light novels/manga/anime is our standard on this site. However, this doesn't mean you can't have alternate universes. Just be sure that anything that is said to have a weakness in canon has the same weakness in fanon and to follow canon as closely as possible.

Consquences

Violations of this policy are punishable. The following method should be followed for carrying out these consequences;

  • First offense: Warning
  • Second offense: Second warning
  • Third offense: Third warning
  • Fourth offense: Article deletion
  • Fifth offense: 1-week block
  • Sixth offense: 1-month block
  • Seventh offense: 3-month block
  • Further offense: Permanent block (depending on the severity of the offense)
