I’ve had a talk with Amanda, and I decided to make a thread detailing what exactly should go into an entry. This took me ages to write, so I hope you like it. Feel free to mention anything I have missed. I will discuss the different styles for the different categories and how they are to be set out. First though, I’ll mention what all entries should have:
If you need to make a disclaimer, the best thing to do is make an Editors note at the top of the entry. To do that use bold text (put a * on either side) and end on line break
when starting entry
Although not needed, I find it’s always best to start of an entry with a picture or a video, just to give a rough idea what it’s about. For a site or even a subculture, it’s best to use the logo of the thing in question, for a person entry use a picture of said person, for a meme, use one of the derivative images or videos (only one though). Event entries don’t generally need an opening picture, so don’t include one.
Search interest is a good way to show how popular something is and should only be used if applicable. It’s pretty pointless just writing “not applicable yet” so leave it out until available. To find search interest, use Google Insights
external links are required for anything thats not on kym. for example, if you mention a youtube account, make a reference to their channel at the bottom of the entry. For info on how to do this, check out the KYM style guide
Now for a breakdown on setting out the different categories:
