Kinnikuman Wiki

N. B. We cannot retroactively enforce rules. We ask that anything in breach of rules be edited if spotted, but users will never be penalised for accidentally breaking new rules on past edits. We ask for understanding if some past edits are missed, as it will take time to correct all past instances.

Rules: Editing

  • Only canon events will be used
    • Please read: What is Canon?
      • We can only allow factual information on the wiki. It is not permitted to include any information that cannot be referenced by canon or extra-supplementary works, interviews, etc.
  • Use present-tense
    • This is for uniformity, as we prefer all articles to have a uniform layout and style
  • Do not use discriminatory language (or curse words)
    • Slurs, swears and hate speech will not be tolerated, and generally problematic language is not allowed
      • The exception to this would be pages like "Deep of Muscle", which are direct translations of otherwise unavailable content
  • Do not unnecessarily reword others' work
    • There will be times a rewrite is necessary, but otherwise leave well-written content mostly intact. It is acceptable to correct grammar, add information (or remove incorrect information), add references, etc., but we do not wish to discourage editors
    • For further clarity, this can also include changing American English to British English (and vice versa), and always includes personal style choices that are not grammatically incorrect
  • Do not artificially inflate your edit count
    • This may be either via a bot or spamming extremely minor edits
  • Do not "edit war"
    • If someone reverts your edit, particularly a local moderator or administrator, please do not revert their revert and instead contact an administrator immediately
  • Please use references
    • While we may overlook a lack of references for "story" or "about" sections, any facts - such as birthdays, stats, or timelines - must have references (if a fact cannot be verified by an admin, it may be removed)

Rules: Moving Pages

  • Do not move pages without permission
    • This is due to trying to eliminate reader confusion, not creating broken links, and not creating double or broken redirects
    • This will result in an instant block

Rules: Fanworks

  • No fanworks
    • No articles can contain links to off-site fan-materials (especially download links)
    • Fanworks must not be used in any form; no fanart in galleries, fanfiction in articles, etc.

Rules: New Articles

  • Articles must have "notable" content
    • Please read: Rules: Notability - Similar to that of the Uncharted Wiki, an article must only be created when it has the potential to be both expanded and valuable to the wiki
    • Notability requirements must be satisfied by a topic meeting one or more of the following criteria:
      1. The topic is important to the ​Kinnikuman series
      2. The topic is unique or distinct to the ​Kinnikuman series​
      3. The topic has inherent potential for article growth
  • All articles must have content
    • When creating an article, it must have content. It's okay if it's just a paragraph or two, but we cannot accept place-holder articles, very short stubs, or something only a sentence

Rules: Images

  • Only upload images related to Kinnikuman
    • These also must be used on the wiki in some form; we are not an image depository
  • Please use transparent images in infoboxes
    • Due to the new UCX platform, this will allow users to better make use of customised light/dark themes
  • Do not post sexually explicit images
    • We must obey the ToS of Fandom, and we also strive to keep our wiki a PG/General rating
  • Clearly label images in English
    • Make sure the name is not already in use, and change the name if it clashes with another name. The image name must also describe the image enough that it can be found by others on a search
  • Use 'Muscle Shot' official art in Info-Boxes
    • The exception being characters who do not have such art; in this case, we prefer scans from the manga in which they appear (no text on the image, preferably no other characters), and - if this is not possible - a screenshot from the game or movie in which they appear
    • We prefer action poses, sitting poses, or other such poses to full-length images; this is because preview boxes - especially on mobile - have a tendency to crop images, which results in a series of crotch-shots for full-length images
  • Post all images in a "Gallery" section
    • The exception is for articles in which there isn't an infobox, but these must go in the top-right corner at 180px
  • Please use images of a good quality
    • We ask for images to be as clear as possible, and to avoid obvious or distracting edits. It is at administrator's discretion whether or not bad quality images will be deleted
