This is what a good article should look like (its contents and arrangement). Refer to this page if you have any questions on what to edit. (note that this is meant mostly for song articles)


"(Song title)" by {{Wp|(song artist)}}, covered by (cover artist) (if applicable), is featured on Game 1, Game 2, and Game 3 (subsequent games only if applicable).

Appearance of the Dancers

Be sure to add images of the coaches, and if there is only one coach, it is not necessary to put any P1. If there is only one mode, there is no need to put Classic.

All descriptions must be in statement form ending with proper punctuation, and not bullet points.

Mashup

It is imperative that each and every dancer in the routine is put in the list by chronological order of appearance. (Song title) has a Mashup on Game.

Dancers

  • Song 1
  • Song 2 [GM1]
  • Song 3
  • Song 4
  • Song 1
  • Song 5

and it goes on until the end. Let's say Song 1 doesn't appear in its own Mashup; then, Song 1 should be left unbolded. Games in brackets should not be put beside the song; this means that something like Song 3 (JD3) should not be in the section.


Gold Moves

  • Users are advised to use Giphy or MakeAGif (with "Remove MakeAGif watermark" enabled) to produce .gifs for Gold Moves. These .gifs must show the entire effect, in order to make the Gold Move clear
  • When describing Gold Moves, use second-person pronouns (e.g. you, your).
  • Separate the Gold Move description from the introduction by typing <br /> before starting the new line.
  • Galleries must be adapted to the number of unique Gold Moves in the routine. For example, Error has two Gold Move, so the gallery must have two columns, so that the .gif is displayed under the picture of its related pictogram.

There are X Gold Moves in the Classic routine.

And that's it! You have made the article as good as possible. Of course, there are some discrepancies, so be sure to use logic or ask a fellow Wikimate if you need help. Please edit this page according to the correct template if I have missed out anything.

Also, note that the sections from Mashup to Captions are only if they exist for the song.

References

Add {{Reflist}} by default.

Site Navigation

Add the respective templates here. Every article is supposed to have the Read in Other Languages template.

Other Notes

Capitalisation Rule

Words like FilesCovers, etc. should not be capitalised by default, as they are not proper nouns, just basic nouns.

Contractions

Don't Do not use contractions in articles.

Passive Voice

Always use passive voice and reported speech, and refrain from using first- and second-person pronouns.

{{G}}

Use the {{G}} and {{G2}} templates when listing games. The codes for each game can be found on their respective template pages. {{G}} is used for linking, and {{G2}} should be used for subsequent references to a game that has already been linked.

Rotobrushes

Since rotobrushes are not from the game files, they are considered fanmade, so they must not be added to the Extractions sections.

Watermarked Gameplays

Gameplay videos that have a watermark should only be added to articles if there is no other footage available. When a new video without watermark can be found, please replace the watermarked one with the new one.

{{PAGENAME}}

The {{PAGENAME}} template is not obligatory, but it is recommended if the song title has an apostrophe or is too long. Always type it in italic (Good Article instead of Good Article).
