Procedures

For a full page grammar edit, go into Source mode, and all the misspelled words will be underlined if you are using a modern browser. If Source mode does not do this, copy the page into Microsoft Word, run the page through a spell-check and judge whether or not the change it is telling you to make is actually a correct change. If so, go back into the actual article and make the change. Do not correct file names; a file called Vegeta_figths_Cell.jpg may exist, but Vegeta_fights_Cell may not, or may be a totally different image. Also, file names are case-sensitive. Goku.jpg and goku.jpg are not the same file. Once you have gone through the spell-check, read through it and make sure that everything flows and that you did not miss anything.

  • All sections of an article describing fictional events (in-universe) should be placed in present tense. All sections about real events which have already occurred should be in past tense.
  • The preferred grammar and spelling convention on the site is American English.
  • Find an article that needs work done, complete the work and add the article to the list of completed pages. Pages not listed in the completed pages section are of higher priority to check than ones already there.

Spelling in Words

There are many different types of English. Examples are American English and British English. To prevent this leading to conflicts, the Dragon Ball Wiki requires the use of American English in articles. For more information, please see the examples below. Also see American and British English spelling differences on Wikipedia.
