Note: List pages follow a different format. Please see List of Action show wikis for an example! The subject of list pages should follow those of the footer program.

Thanks for your interest in helping out the Television wiki! Before you get started, there a few simple rules that should be followed to keep the site neat, efficient, and user-friendly.

Show pages

Note: Youtube shows belong on the YouTube wiki

Pages about television shows from any network and country are always welcome. To begin a page, use the form or the show boilerplate. Simply copy the code, paste into the new page, and fill out the fields.

{{Infobox Television
|title    =
|image    =
|network  =
|current  =
|release  =
|seasons  =
|episodes =
|country  =
|rating   =
|genre    =
|genre2   =
|genre3   = 
}}
  • Image: preferably the promotional shot with the title included of the most recent season
  • Network: the network the show originated on
  • Current: the network the show currently plays on, only if the network is producing new shows
  • Rating: the rating given only by the country the show originated in
  • Genre: Restrict to the single genre that best fits the show
  • Categories: the template auto-categorizes based on network, country, rating, and genre, so no need to add more categories!
Page format
See Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for an example; note that the template at the top is for wikis participating in the footer program only
  • The opening paragraph should be an overview or brief synopsis of the show or series. This can typically be found on the network's site.
  • Cast section: series regulars only (considered to have appeared in at least half of the episodes); actor pages are linked, character pages are not linked
  • Awards, if any
  • Media
    • Images: gallery of images
      • <gallery captionalign="center" position="center" widths="220px" spacing="small">

    • Videos: gallery of videos
      • videos should only be the promotional videos developed for premieres, i.e. trailers

Actor pages

Actor pages should only be filled out if they already have a link leading from a television show's page. To begin a page, use the template below. Simply copy the code, paste into the new page, and fill out the fields.
