Hawkeye's Guide to Items

Okay, since it seems I may soon be taking over as an Admin, I feel the need to help others in getting the wiki up to form. As such, I'll be making some guides just to give newer editors some guidelines in making articles. In these cases, I mean more about when it's appropriate to make an article and the type of information to include, not presentation or formatting, as I think we already have guides for that hanging about.

Now then, when making an Item article, try to ask the following questions.

1. Is this an item easily found/understood in the real world?

Yes: Then does it have some trait/ability or has it played a unique role that makes it different from what you would normally expect of said item? In the case of plants, this would be their supernatural ability. In the case of Yukio's Glasses, it's the role they play in the Salaryman Exorcist series. Someone using their phone as a phone is not really worth an article, someone's phone that also happens to play hundreds of Fatal Verse MP3s or something, probably worth noting.

No: Then it's something unique to the world of Blue Exorcist, and almost certainly derserves an article.

2. Can you adequately describe what the item is/does?

This is something I've discovered with the Chorogi article that makes me think it should probably be deleted. Even if the item is unique to the world, if the only information available about it at the time is its name or the like, then it's probably better to wait than to randomly create an article.

Yes: Then the article will be able to inform people on what this object is and what it does in the context of Blue Exorcist.

No: Then it's probably not worth an individual article, as with the aforementioned Chorogi.

I know a whole two questions probably seems more like common sense than blog worthy guidance, but not everyone tends to think as a matter of processes. So I think, if you ask yourself these questions, work your way down, you will be able to make a better, more informative item article from now on. Anyway, 4am here, I'm away, night all. --Hawkeye2701 (talk) 02:51, May 13, 2016 (UTC)
