This is the manual of style for the Twin Peaks Wiki! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the admins!

Writing styleEdit

The writing style will vary from article-to-article, either written in past or present tense. Sometimes both will be employed in the same article. For example, Dale Cooper has all of the in-universe canon material written in the past tense with the non-canon material in present tense. Episode plots (Pilot for example) are the only in-universe canon material written in present tense.

FormattingEdit

CitationsEdit

Please cite your sources!

Don't forget to add a reference list to an article if it doesn't have one already. It's simple, add the following to the bottom of the page, above any navigation boxes:

==References==
{{Reflist}}

Dates and timeEdit

Since Twin Peaks is an American franchise and takes place (mostly) in America, dates and time will be formatted as such. Example:

February 24, 1989, 3:35 PM

Spelling and grammarEdit

  • As with dates and time, American English spellings of words are to be used.
  • Please avoid excessive use of contractions.
  • Titles of a television series or film should be italicized, while episode and song titles should be double-quoted.
  • Use proper capitalization and punctuation.
  • Use an en-dash where appropriate rather than a hyphen by typing one of the following:
    • –
    • Windows: Alt+0150
    • Mac: Alt+-

Article guidelinesEdit

CharacterEdit

Character articles are really the meat of a cinematic-based Wiki, making them arguably the most important articles. Here is an outline for what a character page should include:

  • Infobox (found here)
  • Introductory paragraph (past tense)
  • Biography (past tense)
  • Relationships (tense varies)
  • Any non-canon appearances (present tense)
  • Behind the scenes information (past tense)
  • Trivia (varied tense)
  • Image gallery
  • References

For a great example of a character article, see Dale Cooper.

Television series, film, and episodeEdit

These articles are pretty straightforward. Here is an outline:

  • Infobox (TV series, film, episode)
  • Introductory paragraph (past tense)
  • Plot (present tense)
  • Cast
  • Production
