  • Always use a simple paragraph format and use present tense in all articles except for the History section which is written in past tense.
  • Capitalization of words should only be used when the original Japanese text is capitalized.

    Example:  Original Japanese title: ポワゾンKISS
          Romaji should be: Powazon KISS

  • This wiki uses Character Color Coding. Please use the appropriate color in templates when a page pertains to a certain character. Also change the font color of the names and titles accordingly.
