General editing advice

Editing is better than criticizing

People have often written a short message on a talk page saying how bad the page is, without even specifying what's wrong with it. This can be frustrating for the editors who worked on the page. Additionally, if an article is bad because it's incomplete (i.e. it has a stub message or a message calling for its expansion), complaining about it won't make the work magically happen. There are appropriate ways to point out that a page needs improvement, such as putting {{stub}}, {{expand}} and {{cleanup}} on pages as appropriate. See template:stub, template:expand and template:cleanup for details.

Be bold

It doesn't matter much whether you as an individual can write "well" enough. Editing articles is a great way to learn about how the wiki runs, and other contributors will probably come in to make little fixes anyway. We only ask that you be coherent in your edits so that appropriate action can easily be determined. However, you should avoid engaging in so-called "edit wars" by reverting what other people do to your work without reason.

A lot of first-time editors get their edits reverted or mercilessly modified. Don't feel too badly about this, because other editors simply want to maintain the quality of the article that you just edited. All in all, this wiki is a community effort.


Please keep in mind that guidelines do exist and that articles are generally expected to be of a certain level of quality. You should especially be aware of the in-universe style in which articles about the Ace Attorney universe are written; this means that you should use past tense in your sentences and refer to all characters by their last names. This allows each article to read like an actual record one might find inside the Ace Attorney universe. More information on guidelines can be found in the manual of style.

Please learn how templates work before attempting something major with them. If a word or a block of code is enclosed by double curly brackets ({{}}), it's calling a template. You should go to the template's page to see how it works so that when you edit code that uses the template, your edit will appear as you intended.

Making new articles

Here are a few things that a new article should always include:

  • Categories. This is probably the most important thing to include. Categories allow people to find the new article more easily and to improve on it!
