The Megami Tensei Wiki work within a set of policies to ensure information is delivered in a consistent manner as set by the purpose of this wiki. The following list of policies may only be applied to the Megami Tensei Wiki:
On Article and Page StyleEdit
- Main article: Project:Manual of Style
Articles follow a format so they are consistent with many of the similar articles. This applies to all entries, especially on Games, Characters and Demons. This policy also covers Categories and Media such as Images and Videos uploaded into the wiki.
On Copying from WikipediaEdit
- Main article: Help:Copying from Wikipedia
Copying from Wikipedia to the Megami Tensei Wiki is discouraged.
On Original ResearchEdit
Due to the nature of the fanbase having different interpretations about the events in the series, the Wiki generally does not accept any analysis and speculation written into main page articles. In general, only statements and comments from the series developer i.e. Atlus is canon in the wiki.
On Page ProtectionEdit
- Main article: Project:Protected page
The majority of pages on all Wikia should remain publicly editable, and not protected. Pages may, however, be temporarily or permanently protected for legal reasons (for example, license texts should not be changed) or in cases of extreme vandalism or edit warring.
On Project ScopeEdit
- Main article: Project:Scope
A list of the wiki's coverage and the order of which it should be arranged for consistency throughout articles.
- Main article: Project:Spoilers
A spoiler should not be removed or hidden - removing information is unacceptable due to the function of this wiki. A spoiler is considered such up until two weeks after the English localization release date, or the Japanese release date for games without an English localization, whichever may apply.
On User RulesetEdit
- Main article: Project:Simplified ruleset
A list of Wikia user guidelines that are useful and should be applied to all from time to time.
There are very few policies which apply across all Wikia. These can be found on the Central Wikia at Wikia:Category:Policy.
Other policies for this Wikia should be decided by the wiki community. It's generally best to keep policies as simple as possible, and not to introduce too many rules. A growing wiki can usually do well with a few simple policies and a lot of goodwill and cooperation.
[[Category:Policy]] to any policy pages will add them to the policy category. This is found here.
