  • Great Wiki. But... these articles need to be in the present tense (typically in Simple present).

    • Fantasy / science fiction: present tense
    • True stories / Real life / Documentaries: past tense

    Articles that need help:

    1. Dark Helmet
    2. Skroob

    Barf is a good article, in the right tenses.

    • Hello! I've never heard of this rule for Wikis and honestly it seems arbitrary; a Wiki should choose a writing style at their own discretion.

      I'm writing these articles this way particularly because Wookieepedia writes theirs in in-universe past tense. As does Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki. One of the goals for this Wiki is to resemble those.

    • Ah, gotya.. it’s not a Wiki thing... it’s just common professional grammar sense.

      I suppose if the other Wikis prepare their articles as if science fiction actually happened, it’s no wonder that Wikis are free run by unpaid thirteen year olds.

      This might be just another example of the Western world being educationally behind (or inferior to) - the Chinese.
