Ghostbusters Wiki

The Templates Collection is a companion help guide to Manual of Style. They both provide the bulk of the information on what is permitted and how to do it. There is much covered here, and while most of it is somewhat common sense, it always helps to take another work.

Important notes:

  • Not all fields need to be filled in the infoboxes and it is okay to leave them blank. Headings included in examples on this page are optional, if they are not useful. Any heading that doesn't have a use does not need to be included in a article.
  • The objective of this page is to make it easy to copy/paste what you need. Don't hold back.
  • Anything you can't find information here might have been overlooked, or simply hasn't been done yet. If you need information on anything, contact a admin.

Basics

Ghostbusters Wiki organizes headers based on canon for many sections and it is important to have a grasp on what media you are covering. A Wiki team agreed to canon is at this location.

Basic Structure is the following:

Infobox

==Canonicity==
<If more than one form of media is covered on the article.>

==History==

==Personality==
<If needed> 

==Quotes==
<For major subjects only>

==Trivia==

==See Also==

==Appearances==
<Recounts all media for subject>

==References==

==Gallery==
<Where all images go>

[[Category:GB? Characters]]
<Categories go at the bottom of the article>

Multiple Images in Infobox

A basic gallery can perform that function.

Labels should be abbreviations for media approved by the wiki which are listed here. However, sometimes a second image for the "Possessor" form or "Real Form" form is needed as some subjects change.


For Primary Canon related articles, it is best to only include images in Primary and Secondary Canon. That being Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Realistic Versions), and IDW Publishing Comics.

GB1.jpg|GB1
GB2.jpg|GB2
GBAL.jpg|GB:AL
GBTVG.jpg|GB:TVG
GBIDW.jpg|IDW
</gallery>




For Animated Canon articles, it should only have The Real Ghostbusters, Extreme Ghostbusters, NOW Comics- The Real Ghostbusters Series, and Marvel Comics Ltd- The Real Ghostbusters Series.

For 2016 related articles, it is allowed to have Ghostbusters (2016 Movie) "aka Ghostbusters: Answering The Call" and Ghostbusters Activision Video Game (2016).

Crew

Overall, any crew article should focus on the persons credits related to Ghostbusters. This is not a wiki focused on the related crews overall field, so all information on their career is usually the basic summary information. Sources such as IMDb and Wikipedia are suggested to get a better idea of their accomplishments outside of Ghostbusters related media.

Important Notes

  • "Born"/"Died" fields can be left blank unless otherwise publicly known. The Wiki is not a place to "correct" birthdays, as usually we cite either IMDb, Wikipedia, or their own website. This is not the place for that sorta debate. If a strong disagreement or change has recently been made, it will be easier to explain it on a admin talk page than to change the crew article.
  • "Ghostbusters Related Credits" heading sections usually list credits found on Cast and Crew Credits articles.
  • "Other Works" heading sections credits are not meant to be extensive. A very basic snapshot of some highlights of their career.
