So, you want to edit the pages on FanimutationWiki? Follow these simple guidelines:

Fanimutation pages:

  • When creating a new page, use the Basic movie article template (or the simplified Alternate movie article template).
  • In the Summary Box, include a [[category:(author) Flash]] link after the author name link.
  • When adding characters to the Cast section, be sure to include a [[category:(character) Filmography]] link after the character name link.
  • If the song lyrics are in Chinese or Japanese, be sure to provide romanized lyrics.
    • For Japanese lyrics, use Hepburn romanization. Transliterate long vowels based on the actual kana (resist the temptation to use āīūēō). Words written in katakana (usually loan-words) should be transliterated in all uppercase - for loan-words, you may optionally use the spelling of the word in its original language (i.e. transliterate プリーズ as either PURIIZU or PLEASE).
    • For Mandarin Chinese lyrics, use Pinyin romanization with accented characters for tone indication.
    • For Cantonese lyrics, use Yale romanization with accented characters for tone indication.
    • For Korean lyrics, use the official South Korean transliteration system.
    • If the song's language is not listed here, mention it in Talk:Editing Guide so one can be decided.
    • If possible, include the original, untransliterated lyrics in a 3rd column.


Author Pages:

  • When creating a page for a Fanimutation author, place {{artistfooter}} at the bottom of the page. This will include a link to the author's Flash List page.
  • Be sure to create the author's Flash List page, containing {{flashartist|(Author Page)}}.


Character/Prop pages:

  • When creating a page for a Character, place {{characterfooter}} at the bottom of the page. This will include a link to the character's Filmography page.
  • Be sure to create the character's Filmography page, containing {{characterfooter|(Character Page)}}.
  • When creating a page for a Prop, follow the above instructions but instead use {{propfooter}} and {{propfooter|(Prop Page)}}.


Pages in general:

  • If a page contains little or no data, place {{stub}} at the top of the page.
  • If the page is mostly complete but is missing data in several sections, place {{incomplete}} at the top of the page.


Last but not least, if you are going to be doing any significant amount of editing, please create an account on FanimutationWiki. It's free and easy to do, and it will allow you to take credit for every page you create and edit.
