This is the Manual of Style for the Club Penguin Rewritten Wiki.

Key: Correct Incorrect

Grammar

  • All articles on the wiki must be written in American English, not British English, unless the game or staff refers to the article as its British name. For example, the game refers to the "Gray Top Hat" as the Grey Top Hat.
  • Do not use any slang or abbreviations on articles, unless the official name of an article is abbreviated.
    • BluerQ was the first Penguin of the Week on Club Penguin Rewritten
    • Bluer was the first POTW on CPR
    • The Rooftop is the place to be
    • The Rooftop is the place 2 b
  • All mentions of game and tv show titles should be italicized. Club Penguin Rewritten and Club Penguin should always be written as Club Penguin Rewritten and Club Penguin respectively. You can italicize by adding '' at the front and back of the game title. If you have punctuation, it should go outside the italicizes.
  • Do not capitalize every word in a sentence. Conjuctions, prepositions and definite articles shouldn't be capitalized either, unless the game capitalizes them.
    • Penguin of the Week is every Monday
    • Penguin Of The Week Is Every Monday
    • Penguin Of The Week is every Monday
  • When adding dates in, make sure you use the full date, year included. Also don't include an ordinal indicator.

Article layout

Amboxes

  • If an article contains an ambox (article message box), it should always be at the top of an article.
  • If an article is missing information, make sure to label it as a {{Stub}}. Do not label an article as a stub if it's just short. Short articles aren't stubs.
  • If an article is plagiarized and you're not good at writing, make sure to label it as {{Plagiarized}}, so another editor can fix it.
  • If you feel an article is unneeded, you can label it as {{Delete}}. This way an admin can review it and see if it's worthy of being deleted or not.
  • If an article does not comply with the Manual of Style and needs a cleanup, label it as {{Cleanup}}.

Infoboxes

  • Infoboxes should be placed right under amboxes. If an article doesn't contain an ambox, the infobox should be at the top.
  • Make sure that every that every field of an infobox is filled out on an article. If the field is inapplicable put N/A.
  • If there are multiple answers in a field, make sure to list them off as commas.
  • Infoboxes should be laid out in order.
    • |appeared = [[Beta Test Party]], [[Puffle Party 2017]], [[Mountain Expedition 2017]]
    • |appeared = [[Beta Test Party]], [[Puffle Party 2017]] & [[Mountain Expedition 2017]]
    • |appeared = [[Beta Test Party]]<br>[[Puffle Party 2017]]<br>[[Mountain Expedition 2017]]
    • |appeared = [[Beta Test Party]] & [[Puffle Party 2017]] & [[Mountain Expedition 2017]]
    • |appeared = [[Beta Test Party]], [[Puffle Party 2017]] and [[Mountain Expedition 2017]]
  • Infoboxes should always be laid out like this:
{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None
}}
'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.

If you have an ambox, it should be laid out like this:

{{Rare}}
{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None
}}
'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.

Here are example of how NOT to lay them out:

{{ItemInfobox|title1 = Beta Hat|image1 = Beta.png|available = No|type = [[Head Item]]|cost = Free|party = [[Beta Test Party]]|found = None}}'''Beta Hat'' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.
{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None}}
'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.
{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None
}}

'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.
{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None
}}'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.
{{Rare}}{{ItemInfobox
|title1 = Beta Hat
|image1 = Beta.png
|available = No
|type = [[Head Item]]
|cost = Free
|party = [[Beta Test Party]]
|found = None
}}
'''Beta Hat''' is a [[head item]] in ''[[Club Penguin Rewritten]]''.

Article text

  • It is the beginning text before the table of contents.
  • The article text should come after the infobox.
  • The name of the article should be bolded. Only bold it once however. Remember to not put a space in the bolded word.
    • '''Rare Mullet Stamp''' is
    • '''Rare Mullet Stamp '''is
  • It should usually be one paragraph.

Links

  • When linking an article, link it like this [[Article name]]. It looks cleaner and nicer like that. Do not put punctuation or spaces in the links. Do not also like this article as an URL. Also if you're linking an italicized word, make sure to put '' around the link, not inside. If you want the link to be plural, put the "s" outside the link.

    • [https://club-penguin-rewritten.wikia.com/wiki/DJ_Maxx DJ Maxx]

History

  • History sections should go below the article text.
  • Item pages should always have a history section.
  • If you're not sure when an item first appeared or left, ask someone or look at past catalogs.
  • History sections should always use "wikitable sortable".
  • If an item is still available put "Still available". Make sure that it's italicized and that available isn't capitalized.
  • Here is how a history section should look:
==History==
{| class="wikitable sortable"
!Catalog
!Available from
!Available until
|-
|[[Penguin Style]]
|March 29, 2017
|August 2, 2017
|}
  • Remember not to capitalize from and until

Other sections

  • If an article needs more information, you're always welcomed to add more sections.
