Wiki DISCUSSION: Manual Of Style

Hello! I created this proposal so we can have a clean look on all of our pages here on the wiki.


Purpose: To create content that looks presentable to the general public.


This is the '''manual of style''' for House Of Cards. Please do not do any reorganization or cleanup of wikitext on the wiki unless you are fixing things to follow this style guideline.


==Writing style==

*Articles should be written in present tense, not past or future tense. The only exception to this rule is when referring to something in-universe that happened in the past.

*Articles should be written in an in-universe style and not refer to the reader or viewer when talking about events.


==WikiText style==

*Headers should be in the form ==Header==, not the form == Header ==. This only applies to articles, image pages use == Summary == automatically and talkpages are free form and no changes should ever be made to header style.

*Things like <code><nowiki>[[Claire|Claire]]</nowiki></code> and <code><nowiki>[[Claire|claire]]</nowiki></code> are pointless, only <code><nowiki>[[Claire]]</nowiki></code> should be used.

*Don't bypass redirects using things like <code><nowiki>[[Frank Underwood|Frank]]</nowiki></code> make use of the redirect properly with <code><nowiki>[[Frank Underwood]]</nowiki></code>.

**It is recommended to use linking templates rather than redirects.


==Common improper style changes==

*Do not add last names to links unless you have a valid reason to do so (full character name has not been used earlier in the article). Full names should not be abused to bypass redirects.

*Do not change page numbers in ref tags to have a leading zero. Going around the wiki and changing 3 to 03 despite most pages sticking to 3 does not improve the wiki at all and just adds pointless edits, just stick with 3.

*Do not place logic into humor, examples are: "How can fire be underwater?"

*Do not list an episode, short, song, book chapter, or game level without including quotation marks around the title.

*Do not list a movie, book, comic, or game without italicizing the title.

*Do not place punctuation outside of quotation marks. The correct placement is inside. Example: "[[Chapter 1]]."

*Do not use more than one question mark or exclamation point in a row. One is all that is ever needed.

*Do not add captions to images in gallery pages.

*Do not use British English spelling or grammar. ''House Of Cards'' is an American series, so therefore American English spellings and grammar conventions should always be used.


==Specific article guidelines==


===Characters===

Each character article must include:

*An infobox with all known information.

*A character biography.

*Trivia - ''Trivia items. Organized in list format using * at the start of the line.''

*Quotes - ''Character quotes. The character's catchphrase shouldn't be on the list of quotes.''

*References - ''Just the ==References== section with a <nowiki>{{Reflist}}</nowiki> template below it to collect the <nowiki><ref></ref></nowiki> tag info in the page. Individual bits of info should be tagged with specific citation other than just the general sources section.''

*If the character's biography consists of just a few sentences, please do not create an article for them. Instead, put the character's information on the character list, [[List of characters]].

*Every character article must be categorized with this category: [[:Category:Characters]].


===Video games===

Each video game article must include:

*An infobox with all known information

*A description of the video game

*Every video game article must be categorized with this category: [[:Category:Video games]].


The motion will move to voting on February 7, 2019 at 10:01PM. (Unless over 90% of users/administrators voting are in favor.)

Wiki Discussion: Wiki Policies

Hi everyone. This is a test at democracy, yay. So here is my idea for wiki discussions.


Purpose: To create a environment where everyone has a say in wiki policies and content.


Wiki policies may be brought up to an administrator or above on their message wall, should an admin approve, the motion in question will be moved to the discussions tab under "Wiki Discussions."


The topic is given four days for users to debate, and add or change the motion. (Only an admin can add or change an amendment.)


After the four days of debate the motion will be moved to voting. A motion must have a heading that looks like this.


VOTING: INSERT MOTION HERE


The motion is given seven days for users to vote. A consensus of 70% among all users, and 50% of administrator support is required unless 85% of users and 100% of administrators vote in favor of the motion. If a consensus is not achieved the motion may not be brought up for a period of six (6) months, unless a bureaucrat sponsors the motion.


Once a motion has completed the voting stage and has passed, it will be moved to official wiki site pages. The post will be locked and archived.


The voting will close February 5, 2019 at 12:56 AM PST.

Deceptive to the end

So as some of you might have already seen, Kevin Spacey recently made a clip featuring him switching between being in character as Frank Underwood and himself. While I know there's a decent amount of people who might unfortunately agree with what he says or may even double down on attacking him; it'll reignite debate around his entire part in the show regardless.

In my humble opinion, I don't think praise for an actor's performance should make people overlook their actions. I would be lying if I said people didn't enjoy the character of Frank Underwood and I would still be lying as well if I said the final season brought things full circle. In truth, I hate seeing people waste their time on this aspect of the show and wish it wouldn't bring down how great it was overall.

Lastly, I don't mean this post to come off as toxic or offensive to anyone he disagrees with my point of view. All I implore is that everyone who has been a fan of the show, just hear me out as some who has also felt let down by the controversy itself.

Spinoff

I think a great spinoff would be a continuation of the next president.... Using the same concept of the show the writers could create a new power type using the same dynamic but with new characters... Kind of like a black mirror type of show in a political landscape. I know im crazy but still.

Spin-off talk

So as some of you might have heard, there's been a couple rumors suggesting that a House of Cards spin-off could be possible in the near future. Most notably, people are interested in Doug Stamper's background and how his overall story arc could somewhat continue the series.

While I personally believe it's just talk, the idea got me thinking about what a HoC spin-off could be like. What could one be about? Could one be set in the same universe and be even as successful?

I'm going to start this thread by throwing my opinion out there and say I think I would like to see the rise of Garrett Walker before the events of the series. I always thought he was a character I wanted to see more of after his first appearance.

What grew my interest in his unseen moments was an interview with the actor done a few years ago in which Michel Gill (actor of Walker) claimed there was a bit more to Walker in terms of who he sought advice from and why he was such a bully to whom ever agreed to be his VP.

Idk, any thoughts?

Peter Russo death

Hi friends,
I am newbie in the series but since the first episode I was just hooked into it.
I am deeply shocked by the death of Peter Russo. I was liking that guy a lot... I thought he would be the top contender to defy Francis...
Man! that was so unfair. I was anxiously expecting he would compose himself and win the drugs addiction.
But in all of sudden, actually that motherfucker hooker came into the scene, and messed up everything.
I got emotional when he call her daughter outside her house, and she said she didn't like to talk with him in that situation[drugged]
Man! I am super disappointing with his death and now I am no longer excited to continue with the series.
Help me

Need Closure

I know that Spacey royaly screwed up but there is so much more to this show that it can't just end at season 6. Please don't leave us hanging or end things abruptly. Too much time has been invested :(
