OK K.O.! Wiki

The Manual of Style of the OK K.O.! Wiki is an editing guide to construct quality information into a consistent and professional stylization of article pages onset in the wiki. It is preferred for all users to use the source editor over visual editor to edit the articles and users should use the "Preview" button before publishing an edit to ensure the page appears the way it is intended to be.

English Conventions

To write an article, users must have an essential background experience of the English language. This includes the usage of grammar, punctuation, mechanics, sentence and paragraph structures. Title headings and section headings are capitalized except for prepositions and short conjunctions. Grammarly is an example of a grammar handbook that is most commonly referred, although, other grammar handbook sources exist.

Formal writing must be in the neutral third person point of view (no first and second point of views.) Also, avoid the use of contractions, informal diction and abbreviations (except for courtesy titles, latin abbreviations, ones unique in the show).

Articles should be written in the present tense and in active voice for majority of the time. Use past and future tense sparingly if an event happened in the past or the future.

Because spelling, language, and punctuation comes in different English variations, the wiki conforms to the American English variant. The only exception that is allowed on the wiki is leaving the punctuation after the quotation marks of episode titles. For example, The season one finale is "You're in Control".

Because users have different preferences on whether to include or omit oxford/serial commas, oxford/serial commas should always be used for the sake of regularity and in some cases, to clarify an ambiguous context.

Trivia

Trivia is always the debatable part of writing articles. Trivia has to be a notable piece of information that is relevant to the topic and worth pointing out in the article. Examples of notable trivia information is continuity changes between episodes, distinguished cultural references, interesting production information, etc. Examples of what trivia is not are information already stated in any section of the article, insignificant coincidental resemblances of other media, repeated occurrences, etc.

Bolding & Italicizing

The only instance of bolding is the title of the article page in the leading section. Aside of formal instances of the usage of italics, italics should only be used sparingly on certain emphasis of particular words or a sentence (such as characters singing but must be surrounded by quaver [♪] notes if a single character sings or beamed quaver notes [♫] if more than a single character sings.)

Links

Piped links are links that have different clickable text than the actual page name that is linked to. It's usually used to direct the main article instead of a redirect page ([[Carol (character|Carol]]), when a word has an apostrophe ([[Mr. Gar's|Mr. Gar]]), or has a section heading that is relevant for the piped text ([[Kaio Kincaid#Relationships|K.O.'s relationship]]).

Please avoid overlinking in the article pages as it is redundant.

Transcripts

Use the {{TranscriptH}} and {{TD}} templates for the transcript pages. Transcripts should be formatted through the screenplay format.

Categories & Templates

Categories are always written in sentence case instead of title case. For example, "Main characters" is preferred over "Main Characters". Beware that categories are case sensitive.

The organization of categories goes by "A to Z" and then proceeding categories in alphabetical order.

There are many templates that are used in the wiki. Each templates will come with detailed instructions (pages suffixed with /doc) on the usage.

References

The references section must contain links to any external references relevant to the page. It's preferred for the {{Reflist}} template to have evidence written out such as a Twitter response, quote, etc. instead of displaying just the visual link. If evidence comes from a video/audio source, incorporate the timestamp.

Example: [https://twitter.com/ianjq/status/999748450987094018 We call him PKO or "Perfect KO" 😈] > https://twitter.com/ianjq/status/999748450987094018

Page Structure

The top matter is for the article management templates, the Main, LookingFor, Quote, and Infobox templates.

The body matter is for the lead introduction section and consequent content. Pages vary on the different sections.

The bottom matter is for the References template, Navbox templates, Categories, Interlanguage links, and the DisplayTitle function.

Wikitext Spacing

This specific guide of spacing is applied to the Source Editor of the pages for readability. Please beware when text is being "wrapped" in the editor as it causes readability issues.

File Conventions

Naming
The name of the file is the file itself and should be clear and descriptive without being excessively long so that image searching is easier.

The style below is the main naming system for specific types of images:

  • Titlecards: Episodename_Titlecard (i.e. Let's Be Heroes Titlecard)
  • Episode Screenshots: Episode name screenshot number (the episode gallery must be in chronological order) (i.e. Let's Be Heroes 1)
    • It's recommended to keep the image count around 200-500.
    • Should have no edits (i.e. cropping), logos, watermarks, and/or texts.
    • Programs such as VLC can screenshot images more efficiently than manually.
  • Storyboards: Episodename_Storyboard_with description (i.e. Let's Be Heroes Storyboard K.O. fights Darrell)
  • Promotional Artwork: Episodename_Promo (i.e. Let's Be Heroes Promo)
  • Model Sheets: Charactername_(design) Model (i.e. K.O. Prom Model)
  • Backgrounds: Episodename_Background_with description (i.e. Let's Be Heroes Background Bodega)
  • Staff Artwork/Drawings: Description of art (suggested to add the artist name)

Categorization
After the file is uploaded and named properly, the file categories can be applied to them. The wiki utilizes two basic foundational file categories: User files and Gallery files. These categories are mutually exclusive, meaning that images will not use both categories at the same time.

User files: User files are any files that are not included in the article pages and are used only for blogs, profile pages, or anything that does not involve the articles that make up the main wiki. That is the only category that will stay. If it is used in an article later on, User files will be replaced with Gallery files. Fan art and user edit based images will only use User files, no exceptions.
Gallery files: Gallery files are any files that are in the main-space articles, whether it be on the characters pages or episodes pages.

The OK K.O.! Krew would occasionally release artworks of the show from episodes to characters, and other features such as props, backgrounds, etc. in their social media accounts. When uploading their artworks, make sure they are named properly and posted on the corresponding staff page and to the correct characters and episodes galleries pages. The staff artwork not only just use Gallery files but will be utilizing one of the five categories:

Minor Characters, Minor Locations, & Minor Objects Pages

People make the assumption that everything must have a page of its own, whether it be a character, a location, or an object. While it is correct to detail canon information of the show's storytelling, the amount of content is the main determining factors whether something is worth creating a page of its own. The Minor Characters, Minor Locations, and Minor Objects pages exists to group the minor content of an item that prevents the pages from being labelled as a stub and unnecessary bloats of elements just for the sake of creating the page (such as generic titles).
