How to Edit

The Most important Rules

While the nature of writing about fictional works requires a certain amount of flexibility, ad hoc decision making, and some policies may be subject to change, we have two cardinal rules we observe here:

  1. When writing articles about the characters or events of a work, write in past-tense, and in-universe
  2. Stay within the parameters of what Turtledove actually put on the page! No speculating. Fan-fic should be for blogs only!

Follow these, and you should be fine.

For more information on formatting, see our Policies page.
