The Enchantimals Wiki is a digital encyclopedia—a wiki—about everything Enchantimals. Wikis allow anyone to edit, so fans can work together to create a database for lovers of Enchantimals everywhere. The mission is to provide the best Enchantimals encyclopedia on the web!

Our goal for the Enchantimals Wiki is to document every aspect of the Enchantimals franchise, from toy store to television. Editing the Enchantimals Wiki is easy, and contributions much needed and much appreciated.

Please sign up for a Wikia account before editing. It's easier for everyone that new editors start an account; the rest of the userbase can get to know them and in turn, in case of conflict, keep their specific reputation and circumstances in mind. You may also want to read Enchantimals Wiki:Privacy policy for concerns regarding privacy protection.

PoliciesEdit

The Enchantimals Wiki has a few simple policies. Please be sure to follow these rules so we can all enjoy the wiki!

Follow the rules

There are a number of rules the Enchantimals Wiki has developed to keep the show running smoothly. All users, both registered and unregistered, are expected to know and follow them. For more information, see Enchantimals Wiki:House rules.

Keep a neutral point of view.

The Enchantimals Wiki is a repository for all things Enchantimals. Because its fans love it passionately, we understand that there may be some points of contention. Please only add verifiable facts to the pages on the wiki, but feel free to discuss your opinions in the comments or in blog posts.

Know that all canon is equal.

In general, fans of any franchise prioritize the cartoon canon over other continuities canon. This is not so on the Enchantimals Wiki, where all continuities hold equal weight. For more information, see Enchantimals Wiki:Canon.

Edit, if possible, in Source mode.

Wikia offers two modes in which to edit: Visual and Source. Visual is the default edit mode, presented when the "Edit" button is clicked. This mode attempts a user friendly experience by dividing elements of the page and explaining what happens, but it also does limit control of the edit. In particular, a side effect from Visual is that text presentation gets enclosed in utterly useless display specifications, which makes the page unnecessarily bigger (and thus slower to load) and harder to maintain in Source mode.

Add verifiable content.

When adding information to the wiki, please include the source of the info. You can do this in the form of a link or a footnote. The source can be a link to another article on the Enchantimals Wiki, or a link to an outside article or website.

Do not add speculation or rumors to articles unless there is a convincing or proper source for the information, such as an interview with a designer, or a trademark registry site. As with opinions, speculation may be discussed in the comments or in blog posts.

Keep in mind that the Enchantimals Wiki has a policy against reporting on leaked information. For more information, see Enchantimals Wiki:Canon.

Cooperate with the affiliated & canon-focussed wikis.

The Enchantimals Wiki is part of a circle of linked wikis that include the Monster High Wiki, the Ever After High Wiki, and the DC Super Hero Girls Wiki. Only cover a topic (extensively) on the wiki it primarily belongs to. Linking to the other wikis is made simple thanks to the availability of the MH template and the EAH template.

Follow the style guidelines.

We want to keep the Enchantimals Wiki clean, clear, and easy to use. Before creating a new page or adding content, please check the next section and check other articles to see what format to follow. Also, make sure that the subject of a new page fits the notability guidelines of the wiki. For more information, see Enchantimals Wiki:Notability.

Style guidelinesEdit

  • Dates are to have fully written out day numbers. That means that, for instance, it is not "April 5, 2013", but "April 05, 2013".
  • It is okay to write in the past tense when talking about the near future. It is a lot of work to get future tenses timely changed to past tenses and often times this results in grammatical errors in the text (like "will be" being replaced by "was be" rather than "was"). It is acceptable to anticipate this and already write the text in the past tense if there's a suspicion the future tense inaccuracy would last longer than the past tense inaccuracy.
  • Do not link to the same article more than once in a section, unless there is a specific need for it. An exception case can be a need to link to a specific section of an article. Another that might occur is when in a story a character is first presented as an unknown entity but revealed later on. Both the first mention of the secret identity and the first mention of the revealed identity warrant a link in the summary.
  • Almost every Enchantimals work in existence is titled by the following rules:
    • Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, and the like are capitalized.
    • Prepositions and articles are generally not capitalized.
    • Prepositions and articles are capitalized when they are the first or last word of a title and when they are longer than three letters.
Keep the above in mind when creating a new article for a work of which the capitalization is not clear.
  • If a work of Enchantimals includes the prefix-title "Enchantimals:", this is not included in the work's article's title.
  • As per Wikipedia's article on italics: "When to use italics: The titles of works that stand by themselves, such as books (including those within a larger series), albums, plays, or periodicals." Works that appear within larger works, such as short stories, poems, or newspaper articles, are not italicized, but merely set off in quotation marks."
    • Arguments can be made both in favor of and against italicizing the titles of TV specials. The Enchantimals Wiki has opted not to italicize them.
    • Song titles are set off in quotation marks.
  • In case a title is appropriate for multiple articles, like Enchantimals, the title itself is to be made a disambiguation page (which uses {{disambig}}) and every other article deserving the title gets the title with an identifier in the form: [title] ([identifier]). For example, the Enchantimals Wiki features articles titled Enchantimals (website) and Enchantimals (stop motion). The decision of what the identifier should be is up to the creator of the new article, though should rely on two principles. Firstly, it should match other identifiers if applicable to create coherency and secondly, it should be as short as possible while remaining precise.
  • In case of source text documentation, such as doll profiles, the text is to be transcribed as literally as possible. This means that not only does the text needs to be replicated with any errors, the layout is also to be replicated as much as possible. The only exception are trademark symbols behind trademarked names, which are to be left out since they aren't technically part of the text.
