From Monkey Island wiki
Before, while and after creating an article you should contemplate the following things
- Is the topic you're writing about extensive enough for an entire article? Or should it be integrated into a section of another pre-existing article.
- How do you want to organise the material? What should be presented first so that the article appears to have a natural flow?
- When is making a list a better idea than putting the information into a paragraph of text?
- What kind of language is required to present a Neutral Point of View?
- What categories should the article go into and must I create a new one for this article?
It is also adviced that articles are made about subjects that are directly linked or have a direct reference to the Monkey Island games. Other games by the same developers as Monkey Island (LOOM, Sam and Max) for instance are only relevant when the games either have a direct reference to Monkey Island or vice versa. This specifically concerns unreleased projects by the same developers as Monkey Island. Unless, these games have a confirmed and tangible connection to the games any reference to them should be left at pages concerning the people making them.
- Don't copy content off other web-sites. If you want to quote mention a citation where appropriate (read more).
- If you don't know how to do something you can find another article where said thing has been accomplished and copy the code.
- If you can't remember how a code works you can use the buttons above the sandbox.
- Always preview before saving.
- Internal-link as often as possible, but try to avoid internal-linking the same item more than once. A text filled with orange and red links can be a real eye-sore.
