Article style

Articles should be written in the following style:

{{Summary Template}}
This is where the introduction text will go!  

{{TOC limit|3}}

== This is an example of a header ==
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit...  
<br>	Line 2
<br>	Line 3

== Header 2 ==
Hwaet!   We Gardena in geardagum theodcyninga, thrym gefrunon, hu dha aethelingas ellen fremedon...  

== Header ==
[[File:Example.png|thumb|Whole-section images should go below level-2 headers.]]

[[File:Example.png|thumb|Whole-section images should go above level-3 etc headers.]]
=== Subheader ===

; Sub-subheader

* Sub-sub-subheader
: Textextextextextextext...

== See also==
* [[Article]]

This is to improve and to standardize readability.
Like with the rest of this wiki, titles must be written in sentence case. This means there is no more capitalization in a title that there is in a typical sentence.
Notice how Template:TOC limit is used and set to three. This should be done on every Theodian article to prevent ToC bloat. There should be no space between the intro paragraph, Template:TOC limit, and the first header.
Any header which contains a subheader should itself be blank.
No header may have only one subheader. In this case, the subheader should replace the header.
Note that there is one space between the bars on either side and the header's text.
Note that there is exactly one space between each header
Note that there is no space between the header and the beginning of the body text.
Note that there are no spaces within the body text, but that each line begins with a line-break and a tab character.
It is important that the "#" character is not used in headers, or the ToC may break. Also, it is important to not linkify headers or to place files into headers.
Bullets ("*"), indents (":"), and mini-headers (";") all require a space between them and their content.
Double quotes (") are only to be used when: there is more than one word in a string, or a string contains an apostrophe. Single quotes are to be used elsewhere.
All Theodian articles should have Template:Theodia3 on them UNLESS they do not have citations. In this latter case, they should use Template:Theodia5.
For ease of search&replace, all sentences should end with two spaces. They will still display as having only one space.

Talk pages

Talk pages should open with {{WikiProject Theodia|class=$CLASS|importance=$IMPORTANCE}}.


Wikipedia isn't too picky about the format used in citations, only that a consistant citation format be used throughout any one article, and that citations contain certain information.
The following is the citation format that should be used on Theodian articles:

(date / retrieved) last, f; last, f.  "title", page.  publication, publisher.  URL
  • Only include retrieved (the date you last viewed the source) if there is no publication date.
  • Replace long URL's with a shortened URL from TinyURL.com, making sure to use a sensible alias that gets the idea of the source across.
  • ALL dates in articles that are not written in a conlang which uses a specific date style MUST use the ISO format: YYYY-MM-DD. This isn't just specific to Wikiproject Theodia, but Wikipedia itself.
  • All citations must be written in sentence case.
  • You should avoid linking things in citations.

In the case of multiple citations within one line, replace them with one source at the end of the line, using the following format:

: etc

Sometimes, an array of sources acts as a single citation. In this case, do the following:

* etc

If a citation is used more than once, do the following:

First use:

<ref name="NAME">text of the citation </ref>

Second use:

<ref name="NAME" />
