FANDOM


This is LEGO Minifigures Online Wiki's Manual of Style. All articles should conform to the standards listed below.

General

  • All articles should contain correct spelling, punctuation, capital letters and language structure.
    • LEGO should be spelled in all capitals.
    • Generally, minifigure should not be abbreviated to "minifig".
    • For all British/American spelling cases, American will be used (i.e. "color", not "colour").
  • Inappropriate language is not allowed anywhere on the wiki, any edits with inappropriate language will be undone, and editor will be warned. If inappropriate language is still used after 2 warnings, editor will be blocked for one month.
  • Tips, speculation, and opinions should not be on pages, even if they are stated as such.
  • All articles should have an appropriate infobox template, filled out and with a good image of the subject. Additional images of the subject should be included in a page gallery or in the rest of the article, if appropriate.

Remain in Third Person

It is important to remain in a third person point of view when editing. A common mistake while editing is to use phrases like the below:

I think Chicken Suit Guy is the best builder in-game.

Although this is completely valid due to the grammar rules above, notice that it is expressing the idea in first person. This can cause a great deal of confusion for the reader. Who is the "I" speaking?

In general, attempt to stick as close to third-person as possible. Try this phrase:

Chicken Suit Guy is considered to be the best builder in-game.

Recommended Order of sections and section headings

  1. Lead Section (no heading): Short paragraph that describes the basic information of the character including the series where the minifigure belongs to.
