This is Chima 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 Laval is the prince of the Lion Tribe.

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:

Laval is considered to be the prince of the Lion Tribe.

Character Articles

Character articles should contain:

  • A Character infobox.
  • A description.
  • At least one image of the character, where there is one available.
  • An appropriate category for the character.

Recommended Order of sections and section headings

  1. Lead Section (no heading): Short paragraph that describes the basic information of the character such as where they are found in the game, any weapons they have, etc. The lead section should not have a heading.
  2. Missions: A list of quests the character gives the player (If any).
  3. Trivia: Little bits of information that can be interesting but are of little importance (If any).
  4. Gallery: A collection of extra pictures if there are a lot of pictures for the page.
  5. See Also: A short, bulleted list of pages closely relating to the subject of the article, or pages that may help the reader understand the subject more.
  6. External Links: A short, bulleted list of external links to official sites with info or news regarding the subject of the article.

Enemy Articles

Enemy articles should contain:

  • A character infobox.
  • A description.
  • An image of the enemy.
  • A trivia section (if needed).
  • A gallery for extra pictures (if needed).

Mission Articles

World Articles

World articles should contain:

  • A world infobox (infobox image should be the world map).
  • A description.

  • A section for areas.
  • A gallery for extra pictures (if needed).
  • A trivia section (if needed).
  • The worlds navbox template.
  • A world navbox template (examples).
  • Any extra categories the world would fit in.

Uploading Pictures

  • All pictures can be uploaded under Special:Upload or Special:MultipleUpload for uploading more pictures at one time.
  • If you choose a name that has already been uploaded on a different file, verify that you want to overwrite it before doing so.
  • If you can find a high-quality picture in the PNG format, please do so rather than JPG.
  • Do NOT upload inappropriate pictures.

What pages NOT to make

  • Pages for players.
  • Pages for player Outposts.
  • Pages for questions, these can be posted to your User Blog or posted on the Forum.
  • Pages for game files.

  • Pages for buildings, buildings go here.
  • Pages for bricks, bricks go here.
  • Pages for fan-made things.
