Note: Some of the information have been taken from Winx Wiki. All credit goes to the original author.


These are the standards for the articles, pictures and any other items on Hollywood Arts. If you need any help, questions or concerns, feel free to ask our active administrator, Stellamusa101. You could also ask our chat moderators Chocolate-lady112 and ScarlethX for chat help.

Continuity

Articles must be written using the Magic Mirrors continuity. There is no negotiating this. This is an English Hollywood Arts that primarily acknowledges the Magic Mirrors version with footnotes for the 4Kids version and Tec Studios (Malay) dub.

You may ask why Malay dub is needed. It is because the Malay dub is by Tec Studios, a supervised company of Magic Mirrors use to create other dubs. You may also ask why Malay dub is the only one we allow, it is is because Magic Mirrors itself recommend us to do so (old deleted Facebook page is source, new Facebook page did not list the post).

Rumors and Theories

There is a difference between a rumor and a theory. (Definitions from dictionary.com)

  • Rumor: "gossip; hearsay; a story or statement in general circulation without confirmation or certainty as to facts." Rumors are generally leaked information with uncertain or unknown sources believed to be a part of the production team. They generally refer to the happenings of future seasons, powers, and characters.
  • Theory: "a proposed explanation whose status is still conjectural, in contrast to well-established propositions that are regarded as reporting matters of actual fact." Theories are created by fans and based on prior actions, circumstances, and the like. They will sometimes be predictions of future seasons, powers or characters, and they are sometimes alternative interpretations of past actions.

Rumors and theories are both allowed on this wiki, but should be specified as such. Passing rumors or theories as fact, without appropriate qualifiers, is unacceptable.

An acceptable example of each as follows.

  • It is rumored Iris actually likes Dean, but gave up with him because of Diamond.
  • It is theorized that Nina and Jewel cannot achieve Airix and Earthix because they did not go to the other fairy levels.

Spelling, Grammar and Titles

Capitalization

The following words do not need to be capitalized unless they are the beginning of a sentence or part of a proper noun: evil, good, fairy, witch, etc.

We have all taken English classes and standard English grammar has not changed in the last few years. The English language, especially in a wiki, is not the place to make up your own new rules.

Grammar update as of 30 August 2013: Please use the US spelling.

Fairy

Only the spelling "fairy" and its plural variant "fairies" will be used. Alternate spellings such as fay, fae, faerie, and fayrie are not acceptable. This is a reference guide to the The Gems: A Magical Adventure series and as such should be treated like a dictionary, with uniform spelling.

Contractions

A contraction is a shortened form of two words. For example, "will not" is shortened to "won't," "cannot" is shorted to "can't," and "they have" is shortened to "they've." (This is not an exhaustive list; there are many more common contractions.) Contractions are never used in formal writing and therefore will not be used in this guide. Any contractions must be spelled out completely. Please note that the apostrophe indicating possession, as in "Daphne's Golden Ring" or "the girls' boyfriends" are not contractions, and therefore not subject to this rule.

Titles

While many characters have royal titles and are the sovereigns of their realms, the titles are not to be included in the article name. Use their given name only.

Example: Sugar is the commander of Air Melody; her page title is simply just Sugar.

Pictures

Galleries

On galleries we prefer stock art and transformation screenshots. For uploading all screenshots, please upload at this wiki instead.

General

The quality of a picture depends on how well you are able to see its contents. If the picture seems off (for example, it is too bright, too dark, or too grainy and you are not able to make out details) it is not acceptable and should not be used anywhere on the site.

Only put pictures on the pages after all of the information has been added. If the description is good enough, then adding pictures won't be a necessity until later.

Stock Art

Stock art is a valuable tool to communicate an outfit. However, some "stock art" isn't really stock art - it is painted on a model. Be careful. Emerald's Fab Fashions is especially bad for this, so don't use anything from there.

Stock art must be:

  • Official
  • Not made up
  • Clear/Sharp (no blurry edges)
  • Colored correctly
  • Have no watermarks or labels

Screenshots

Screenshots are wanted and needed; however, there are some criteria.

  1. Like stock art, screenshots cannot have watermarks or labels.
  2. Screenshots should not have a border on them. (This does not apply for userpage pictures.)
  3. Screenshots do not have to be of very good quality; however, it must be clear what it is a screenshot of. Again, the quality of a picture depends on how well you are able to see its contents. A screenshot in which no detail whatsoever can be made out is not acceptable.
  4. If the picture is a replacement for stock art, please upload it to the same name by clicking 'upload a new version' on the file page.

For the transformation screenshots, we probably will not be able to see the faces very well. A little blurry is fine, like below:
