The Chronicles of Narnia Wiki

The following guide is adapted from the Anne of Green Gables Wiki, The 100 Wiki, and the old WikiNarnia Format and it has been modified to fit WikiNarnia.


This is the Manual of Style; here, you can find simple guidelines for the layout of articles. First, some quick points:

  1. Because the Chronicles were written in and about England, all articles should be written with British English spelling.
  2. Since this wiki is to be treated as an encyclopaedia and only deals with factual information, it is highly encouraged to cite your sources. This means mentioning where you have gotten or taken the information. Unsure of how to write a reference? Check the references page or contact one of the admins.
  3. When uploading an image, a GIF or a video, please make sure it has an identifiable name. Just numbers or random letters are highly discouraged. Instead, try to name it something like 'Illustration Aslan Creating Narnia' or 'Jadis Battle Carriage LWW Disney' or 'Susan Pevensie BBC Close Up'.
  4. All book-universe and adaptation-universe articles should be written from a historical point of view and in the past tense. Meaning, as if Narnia were an actual place and all of the Chronicles were factually true about real events.
