Manual of Style?[edit source]

Can we create a manual of style for this wiki? I'm finding articles to be very inconsistent, with some of them referring to the player in the third-person and some in the second-person (you) as an example. I think it would make the articles more uniform and easier to read. Consider this manual from another Gamepedia wiki. :) --SirMoogle (🐥💬🌟) 20:01, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

We should create a style guide to make most articles consistent. Most of them were created to have it, but weren't reworked to make them consistent. Have you any ideas, what should be included to have a simple guide? - Magiczocker (talk) 22:35, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
There's a lot, but to start, three things: first I have to say tone's the big one. There are articles that refer to the reader as either the Peasant, the player, or you. We should decide on one of these for all articles. Another thing is if you want to keep bullet points for article pages to summarise effects. I can revert my changes if you want to keep it that a la The Binding of Isaac Gamepedia, or standard encyclopedic prose. Third is really minor, and that's what orthography (spelling) you want for articles for editors to use. Since Thorium's based in Vancouver (hello fellow Vancouverites!) we can use Canadian English, or just use American English like most other wikis on this domain. --SirMoogle (🐥💬🌟) 23:23, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
