Ace Attorney Wiki
Hello there! You've found the Wright place! Welcome!

Hi! welcome to Ace Attorney Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Shih-na page.

Welcome to our wiki, and thank you for your contributions! There's a lot to do around here (no, seriously), so I hope you'll stay with us and make many more improvements.

The Community Portal has an outline of the site, and pages to help you learn how to edit. In particular, Recent changes is a great first stop, because you can see what other people are editing right this minute, where you can help, and what other people are discussing on talk pages. Many people rely on talk pages to communicate with other users, including you!


If you find yourself rating a page negatively, it would be helpful to the editors to voice your complaints about the page on its talk page. People have often given a page a very bad rating, or 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. You are invited to edit in the missing parts of the article!


Please read the Ace Attorney Wiki:Manual of style to see the standard by which the articles should be written. 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.

If you're not sure whether you can write "well" enough, be bold and write anyway. 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.

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.

Edit revertsEdit

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. On that note, other editors will often give a reason for their reverts, which appear in each article's history log.

Making new articlesEdit

Here are a few things 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!
  • Appropriate templates. Character articles need to have Template:Character on them. Episode articles need to have Template:CaseData or Template:Investigation and Template:Episodes on them. Articles about places and organizations need to have Template:Place on them. You can use the buttons above the new article editing box to input these automatically.
