One of the most important parts of wiki editing is how to structure an article. Structure dictates what information the reader reads and when he or she reads it. It can influence what people contribute, where they put it and how it is written. Good structure is likely to produce high quality articles.
Organize sections in an article in a hierarchical structure like you would an outline. Try using a shallow structure rather than a deep one. Having too many nested sections usually leads to a confusing or unreadable article.
Section order and naming
The following is a short overview of the Sekirei wiki standard article layout for Sekirei Manga chapters. Its purpose is to provide a quick reference for order and naming of these articles. Note that all toplevel sections are h2 headings.
First off: The page name has to follow this naming style: "Sekirei Manga chapter 6"!! To name the article like this is essential because otherwise the infobox template we use will not work as intended.
Note: Sections not marked as mandatory are considered good style. This means it would be nice to have but isn't mandatory.
- Chapter articles should generally start with a lead section which is not more than a few sentences and two paragraphs. Its purpose is to provide a short definition of the chapter itself; after reading it, a reader should have a basic idea of the chapter. Which chapter is it, the author,publisher etc. Note: The lead section is mandatory!
- The chapter Infobox. Used to display the chapter cover (!) and typical data like the Japanese name, Romanized name, the volume etc. Makes use of the Infobox chapter template. Note: The Chapter infobox is mandatory!
- Short Synopsis. This section describes the chapter in a few sentences to help the reader to get an idea about it. In short, what happened in a few descriptive sentences. Note: The short synopsis section is mandatory!
- Detailed Synopsis. A detailed description about the chapter.
- Introduced Characters. Which characters made their first appearance in the chapter. Use a simple list to show them. Note: The introduced characters section is mandatory!
