The Guidelines

  • Please use proper Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling in all wiki articles and always make sure articles are written in a formal tone, Disruptive editing will be met with punishment.
  • Do not create useless pages.
    • Fan-made stands count as useless pages. They can be made into user blogs, just not pages.
    • Pages that are created to accuse other users, such as scammer or exploiter lists, also count as useless pages.
    • Joke Pages are included in this rule
    • Creating useless categories such as: Time Stop and Stardust Crusaders (Use Part numbers, i.e. Part 3) fall under this rule
  • Avoid showing bias while editing pages. Doing so will be considered vandalism.
    • If you're adding information on things such as the best specs for a Stand, make sure to back it up with logic, not just "I use it and it's good".
  • Do not use bold or italics randomly, only use them for important information in an article e.g. 'Heart of the Saint's Corpses cannot be dropped even in private servers'.
  • Make sure that all information in articles is useful or relevant and properly ordered in headings. Any information not relevant to a stand/spec/NPC page in any of the standard headings can go into the Trivia section of the page but that doesn't mean that you can put whatever you want in the Trivia section.
    • If something has not been confirmed to be in game, make sure to state that said thing's existence is merely a rumor.
  • Hyperlink words to their pages, e.g. in the Vampirism page, if the word Stone Mask is used then hyperlink it to the Stone Mask page, you only need to hyperlink something once for the first time it is mentioned.
  • Do not add an unnecessary amount of headers into an article i.e. we don't need an entire section just for 1 glitch in the Steel Ball Run page.
  • When making a new Stand page, follow our Stand Page Format and also make sure that other stand pages follow the format.
  • It is strongly recommended to not edit pages on older phones due to unwanted glitches that can occur
  • Do not farm edits (edits that are more about quantity than quality) as this usually leads to many unnecessary edits such as useless categories (e.g. White, Pink, Time Stop, Time Erase, Stardust Crusaders etc.) or information that is hard to read and may frustrate anybody coming to the wiki for information.
  • Make sure information on pages is written comprehensibly so it is relatively easy to retain information, simple things such as paragraphs and punctuation can make interpreting writing much easier.
  • When writing out combos on stand pages, make sure to have them named in brackets after the keybinds as not everyone uses default keybinds. e.g. C-Moon combo: E + R + T + Y (Stand Barrage + Barrage Finisher + Uppercut to the Moon + Surface Inversion Punch)
  • When editing tabbers such as Skill Tree sections, make sure to bullet point individual items in the source code editor so that they aren't clumped up into the same line e.g.

*Cresent Slash: 1 point
*Pierce Strike: 1 point
*Hamon Charge: 2 points

  • Make sure articles are tidy and ordered i.e. everything is sorted into headings, images aren't randomly placed with random captions, information is sorted into paragraphs, infoboxes are utilised, combos are grouped consecutively.
  • Adding how much damage a skill/move does is optional but recommended.
  • It is encouraged to make sandbox drafts before publishing a page. You can access your sandbox by following this link. This assures quality control in pages and make sure to ask someone to review the sandbox if you are unsure if it is good enough.
  • Please try to use the Source Editor more than the Visual Editor, if you need help in this, there is a FANDOM page on it.
