This Layout Guide, is an official guide on how all Reign articles should appear. This Layout Guide is intended to make the Reign wiki consistent, clear, and precise. This guide will help editors with: language, layout, and formatting. If you have any questions, please contact the Admin.

You do not need permission before beginning to edit, or post on this wiki. However, please be aware that any content you may post here will likely be edited at some point by other users. We are all here together, working to make the Reign wiki better.

Consistency Edit

General Edit

  • The Queen's English is used on this wiki when making edits. (i.e. Colour instead of Colour) This show takes place in Europe, before the discovery of North America
  • Articles should be informative, unbiased and factual rather than speculative.
    • Articles should not include personal opinion.
  • Use proper spelling and grammar. (But, mistakes happen)
  • Unsure about spelling, use Google, Yahoo, or a word document with spell check.
  • Check out the Category Guide for proper categorization of articles.
  • Read the How to do Pictures page before adding pictures.
  • Do not plagiarize.
  • Use referenced when appropriate
  • Names, titles and locations are to be written in italics
  • Making edits to boost achievement points is not acceptable.
  • Use the "Preview" button you publish your edits.

Tense Edit

Use present tense when writing an article.

  • Example: Mary Stuart, is a strong, independent woman, and has a clear moral compass from being raised by nuns. She tries her best to be fair, and wants to be a strong leader.

Use Past tense when referring to: Deceased Character articles.

  • Example: Aylee was one of the ladies-in-waiting and a close friend of Queen Mary, along with Lady Kenna, Lady Lola and Greer of Kinross. Her family owns the lower half of Scotland, and she was possibly the most educated among them, speaking several languages, including Latin and Italian.

Capitalizing Edit

  • Don't type in all capitols.
  • Any and all articles should not have any sentences in capitols.

Linking Edit

  • Avoid Linking to the current page. Simply bold the name of the page.
  • Link pages one time per section of the article you're editing.
  • Pull names must be written in to link properly(i.e. Mary)

Media Guide Edit

Regarding all videos, pictures, and another else relating to media.

General Edit

Names Edit

When doing pictures, there are a few rules. When you name the picture, your must first put in the episode title, followed by the name(s) of who's in it, and (if you can) a brief description of what's happening. You also must licence it, and in the summery write the episode, the season, and if you can, the character(s).

For characters with long names you may put: King Henry = Henry, Nostradamus = Nostro, Queen Catherine = Catherien, & Simon Westbrook = Simon.
You may also write in 'Group' when it's all or most of the characters.

  • EX1) Pilot - Mary n Francis kiss
  • EX2) Snakes in Garden - Group
  • EX3) Snakes in Garden - Nostradamus n Cathereine fight

and for the summaries simply put: Pilot in Season One

This is to make it all easier when someone else is looking for a picture for an article from an episode. Or just a picture of a character. And don't forget the capitals when making a season, a link. (EX. Season Two)

Also pictures for character pages, and episode Synopsis must be 188px

If you are going to be the first to upload a gallery for an episode, please number them, and then add in what is written above. You can go to any episode Gallery for an examples.

- Upload the episodes, last to first, (10, 9, 8, etc) this will leave them in correct order when adding them to episodes, or galleries as the upload in reverse order.
- NO MORE than 40 − 50 pictures for an episode at a time, unless it is a special episode, like a season final. However then those pictures must be added to each characters galleries as well, in the correct order.

ANY questions, check out an example HERE and click EDIT to see how it's done. Or ask me --~ Lorisa! (talk) 23:37, December 26, 2013 (UTC)
