[edit] Guidelines

We still haven't formulated guidelines for a FA, so here are some suggestions (and yes, I feel Talk Page-y tonight as you might have noticed):

A FA must:

  • Describe an important event, artifact or person, be it in the real-world or in Arda.
  • Have a limited amount of redlinks (5%?).
  • Have full sourcing.
  • Have some good images.
  • Have a bulk of text in the "History" section.
  • Have (if available) a full "Portrayal in Adaptations" section.
  • Have (if available) a full genealogy in the familytree template.
  • Have (if available) an "Other Versions of the Legendarium" section.
  • Have as many relevant templates (disambigs, see also's, navigation, pronounce) as possible.
  • Have language links if available.
  • Have a "Merchandise" section (for Decipher Cards, Games Workshop, chess pieces et cetera).

Any more suggestions or comments? -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 22:08, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
