The following are some editing guidelines that the Cyberpunk Wiki follows.

If you need any additional clarification, please contact one of the wiki's admins or post on the forums.

Writing guidelines

When to edit

The wiki encourages editors to make an edit whenever they see an article that needs improving. Whether it be something as minor as a spelling mistake, or something larger like gaps in the facts provided, don't be afraid to jump in and improve the site. However, the wiki expects editors to be more circumspect when it comes to editing templates. The design and layout of the wiki's templates have been carefully considered; as such please consult an admin if you wish to propose a major change.

What tone to use

While the wiki does not expect editors to use an academic tone, there is still an expectation that articles maintain some level of formality. This means that while contractions such as "it's" are acceptable, informal language such as "ur" in place of "your" is not. Further to this, please avoid writing in first person.

What spelling to use

As this wiki has editors from across the world, British and American spelling and grammar styles are both accepted. Editors are strongly discouraged from changing another editor's spelling or grammar purely because it is different to the style they are accustomed to. However, users are expected to follow the spelling used in-game.

When to use the edit summary

Whenever there are significant changes to an article, please leave an explanation in the edit summary. If the change is minor (things like fixing spelling or adding links) there is less of a need to explain, though editors are welcome to.

When to sign and when not to sign

Always sign comments in the forums and on talk pages with four tildes (~). Conversely, never sign articles.

What pages should not include

Speculation

Speculation should be avoided. If there is a strong reason to add something related to upcoming releases, or that is not made explicit in the canonical works it must be accompanied reliable source. This is to make it clear that you are not adding speculation.

Personal comments

If you have a question about a page, or comment about a particular edit, do not write it in the article. Instead use the forums, or relevant talk page.

Mods

Linking to fan-created mods are not allowed on the wiki, as their inclusion depends on the editor. The only exceptions are bug fix mods, which can be included if it is listed on the wiki as a bug, not a cut content.

If the developer has released a patch which addresses these bugs, the fan-created bug fix mod must be removed, and replaced by a note that a patch fixes it.
