The following are the editing rules on the Survivors by Erin Hunter wiki.

Pawprint-stickerEditing Rules

  1. Do not create unnecessary pages that are not Survivors related.
  2. Refrain from bias in the character pages.
  3. On character articles, use only official U.S character art that is confirmed to be that character. 
  4.  On the character articles especially, put images ONLY in the character boxes using the box template. 
  5. Noting back to #3, do not edit an article to remove accurate information you may not like simply because it about your favorite character. 
  6. Unofficial images are allowed on (term) articles, animal articles and location pages.  
  7. Be sure you are making a neccessary page to the wiki when creating new pages. Contact a local staff member if you'd like confirmation.  
  8. If someone edits or undoes your edit with good reason, do not edit it back unless you'd like to personally talk to the opposing editor.  We'd like to avoid edit wars
  9. Please cite any new information regarding a character's appearance or trivia. Don't know how to cite? See below the page for information on citing. 
  10. Do not create any chapter pages until a book has been released. Also, do not create the chapter page unless you plan on writing it - this helps with organization.
  11. Do not add a character page to a book character category until the book has been released.
  12. Do not create new categories without alerting an admin or staffmember for approval.
  13. Do not plagiarize content from another wiki's page or copy-and-paste from a citation source.
  14. Contact an admin or have a community discussion before creating a new article.
  15. Do not create articles that already exist.

Pawprint-stickerCommon Mistakes

  1. Words such as "Pack" should be capitilized and words such as Swift-Dogs should have their respective hyphens with proper capitalization. Fierce Dogs does not have a hyphen.     
  2. Make sure to italicize and link books underneath book appearance for character infoboxes.
  3. Underneath current status for dogs, it should be Alive, not Living. For dead characters, it should be Deceased (how they died){cite}. This does not apply for Members underneath Family -- where it is Living instead of Alive.
  4. Put Spoiler Warnings at the very top of the page. At the bottom should have the end spoiler tag.  
  5. Be sure to check for grammar, spelling or punctuation mistakes before saving. 
  6. More to be determined...

Don't know how to cite?

  • Find the page of the information.
  • Know which abbreviation to use:
    • The Empty City - TEC
    • A Hidden Enemy - AHE
    • Darkness Falls - DF
    • The Broken Path - TBP
  • See a pattern? You should be able to do this with each book. 
  • {{r|(BOOK ABBREVIATION)|(PAGE # FOUND)}}
    • It should look something like this:
      • {{r|TEC|288}}
    • For Pack Lists, you put "PL" at the end of the abbreviations.
      • {{r|AHEPL|}} 
    • For Dedications, you put "D" at the end of the abbreviations.
      • {{r|AHED|}}
  • Go in Source Editor to put a cite behind the information. 
  • Hope that helps!
