Checklist for New Article Creation[edit source]

Check Task Comments
Ensure that (where appropriate) titles are consistent with other similar articles These help keep Festipedia article titles consistent
Meet Style Guidelines
Ensure Redirects are in place, as appropriate
Ensure Disambiguations are in place, as appropriate
Add appropriate Infobox Infoboxes provide a summary of the subject of the article. They are commonly used for locomotives, carriages, locations and people.
Add References as needed As well as providing further reading, they also enable verification of information.
Add External Links, as appropriate
Add See alsos, if appropriate In articles which are subpages of a main article (an individual carriage for example) then a link to the main article should be included.
Create WikiLinks, as appropriate, and check them
Make sure it is not an orphan An orphan is an article which has no articles linking to it. Links to articles make them more accessible/findable. Click "What links here" in the left-hand column to check.
Add appropriate Categories All articles in Festipedia must have categories. They work like subject headings in a library catalogue and help users find articles on similar subjects. They also help users navigate. You must ensure that all pages you create are categorised with all appropriate categories. Don't hesitate to create new categories if appropriate.
Add Stub Tag/Categories, if appropriate This helps ensure that Stubs can be located for expansion by editors
Add Image, if available Images vastly improve the quality of an article as well as proving visual prompts about a subject
Check for typos – and again!

Wiki maintenance hub[edit source]

Welcome to the Wiki Maintenance hub!

This is a page which can be used to monitor the maintenance queues that are created by pages being tagged as requiring improvement.

To add an article to a maintenance queue: insert the text in the first column at the top of the page (make sure you are using the "source" editing mode).

To see all articles in a maintenance queue: click the link in the second column.

  • We need your help! Festipedia is run by volunteer editors, and when we spot problems, we don't always have time to fix them. If a page is tagged (or even if it isn't) please improve it! Together, we can help improve Festipedia. Be brave: remember, changes can be reverted if it all goes wrong.
  • Is there a problem on a page? All users are welcome to add tags as they deem fit. Add more details about the problem on the talk page if necessary.
  • If you think an article no longer warrants a tag, feel free to remove it.
