Welcome to the Manual of Style page. This page will be used as a reference for editors on how to format the articles in the Inazuma Eleven Wiki in a more standard, organized manner. You are welcome to discuss any descrepancies or loopholes in the talk page.
- New articles should be named according to the subject's official name.
- There is zero tolerance for fake information and speculations added to articles. Unless you can prove what you are writing is legitimate, do not add it.
- The first line in the intro should be about the subject of the article, and the subject has to be written in bold. This is only for the first sentence about the subject.
- Avoid using the second person pronoun (you) in articles.
- All game titles should be italicized.
- Do not use abbreviations. Inazuma Eleven 3 should be written in full, never use IE3 or InaIre3.
- Interlanguage/interwiki links are optional, but they are encouraged. Note that once an interwiki link has been placed, it should not be deleted unless at least one of the following circumstances are fulfilled:

- The current link is being replaced by another link, either after the renaming of a page, or to prevent redirection.
Deleted/previously deleted articles
- Deleted articles should never be revived on the Wiki until and unless there is enough information to substantiate them.
