Welcome to the Motorcity Wiki's Article Guidelines.
Please refer to the Motorcity Wiki Guidelines for more information.
This page will answer many of your questions pertaining to articles on this wikia. If you can not find your answer, please ask an administrator.
What is an article
An article should be a page, officially named, with a topic falling under one of these categories:
- A character from Motorcity, such as Mike Chilton
- A voice actor from Motorcity, such as Mark Hamill
- An episode of Motorcity, such as "Going Dutch"
- A place in Motorcity, such as Mutt Dogs
- A significant thing from Motorcity
Please do not create relationship pages. Instead, create a section in a character's article describing relationships. For example, Mike's page should have a section describing his relationship with all of the other main characters.
Please include an appearance section in an article and not in a character box.
When linking please link the first appearance of a thing that has a separate article. Do this in a main article and in a template. Using this guideline, one thing should never be linked on a page more than twice. Some tricky situations occur when using possessives. Please use this format:
