Other Guidelines


Character Histories

This page will outline what is expected for each Character History page.

Title

Character History pages should always be titled as the following.

History of <Character> (<Season>)

For example, if my character was Colten Potter and I wanted to create a history page for Menace in the Mountain, I would title it as:

  • Correct: History of Colten Potter (Menace in the Mountain)

Please avoid other titling errors such as:

  • Incorrect: History of Colten Potter/Menace in the Mountain
  • Incorrect: Menace in the Mountain/History of Colten Potter
  • Incorrect: (Menace in the Mountain) History of Colten Potter

Introduction

Images

The image should be thumbnailed, which puts the image near the top right corner. The image should come from the season intro. If the image doesn't come from the season, put a full-sized random image that corresponds to the character.

Quote

Juts like any other page, the quote should go at the very top of each Character History page and should represent the overall theme of the season or a famous catchphrase a character says. The colors should match the theme of the season or the character.

Opening Paragraph

This section should briefly describe the character during the season.

Other Guidelines

Introduction

Images

The image should be thumbnailed, which puts the image near the top right corner. The image should be a full-sized image of the characters together.

  • Family (if applicable)

This section should include all of the relationships a character has within their family (extended and remote relatives should also be listed).
