RequirementsEdit

General RequirementsEdit

  1. … be well written, comprehensive and detailed.
    1. To be well written, the article must have a prose that is engaging and of a professional standard.
    2. To be detailed, an article must be written in an encyclopedic format with no point of view in the detail, though the detail does not have to be novella-like detail. The detail must also contact all relevant major facts and plot points.
    3. The article must acknowledge and explore all aspects of the subject and cover every encyclopedic angle.
    4. The article does not need to have a finished storyline.
    5. To be well written, comprehensive and detailed, the article must be of substantial length, long enough to provide sufficient information, depth and analysis of the subject without including unnecessary information.
    6. The article must be clear, using a logical structure written in plain language.
    7. The article must follow standard writing conventions of modern English (ie, correct grammar, punctuation and spelling).
    8. The article must not be a Mary Sue as specified by the following requirements for certain types of articles.
    9. All grammar and spelling must be one hundred percent accurate.
  2. … have an introduction of at least two-hundred and fifty (250) words that summarizes the entire topic and prepares the reader for the greater detail in the following sections.
  3. … have at least twenty (20) internal links to Indiana Jones Fan Fiction besides years.
  4. … have a Behind the scenes section documenting any notable facts about the development of or inspiration for the article. All entries should have at least one fact, as every article is inspired by something and there is always interesting points about the development of the article.
  5. … be properly sourced with all available appearances on Indiana Jones Fan Fiction
  6. … follow the Manual of Style.
  7. … contain enough images where appropriate.

  10. … have no links in section titles.
  11. … have a substantial, though not overwhelming, table of contents.
  12. … be stable, meaning that it is not the subject of any edit wars and that the content does not change significantly from day to day, reversions of vandalism and improvements based on suggestions not applying.

Character RequirementsEdit

A Featured Article nominee detailing a character must:

  1. … have a detailed history section describing all aspects of the characters life. This includes his early life, his rise to power/fame/fortune, how he was able to maintain his power/fame/fortune or how he lost it. A detailed explanation of his death, if he is dead, and the events immediately after his death must also be given.
  2. … have three specific sections detailing the character outside of the history:
    1. Provided that the character is dead, the article must have a detailed section describing the legacy of the character. Stating that the character did not do anything of major importance is not an option, as influence does not necessarily mean influence on a major galactic scale. Characters always influence those around them, so how the legacy that the character left on his friends, family or associates must be given.
    2. The article must have a detailed Personality and traits section, one that actually contains weaknesses and faults rather than gushing praise of who the person was.
    3. The article must have a detailed Talents and abilities section.

The latter of the three includes wars, battles, treaties and anything else that allows an organization to retain power.
    1. If the story is unfinished, the ending of the history section must be left open to interpretation. The author must simply end the story or state that it was unknown what happened. Articles saying that an organization lasted for thousands of years without any detailed explanation as to how or why that happened will not be accepted.
    2. If the story is finished, the history section must detail how and why the organization fell, why they were or were not able to rise up again and how they did or did not rise up again.
  2. … have the following five major sections, not counting the history section, if the organization is a government.
    1. A detailed section describing all branches of the government. If it is a democracy or a republic, the article must go into detail about the make up of and cooperation between the executive, legislative and judicial branches. If it is a dictatorship, the article must go into detail about the powers of the dictator. If it is a theocracy, the article must go into detail about the powers of the church.

It must also include the type of currency, what the currency is worth and how it is used.

    3. A detailed section describing all aspects of the society and culture, including the type of entertainment the people enjoy and the type of lifestyles the people lead.
