User talk:Rockersk08/Anime Episode Synopsis Guidelines
- I rarely link to Wikipedia if at all. I linked a lot with DP105 for some weird reason, probably to give more detail on Rotom. I chose DP105 as an example because I used plenty of different links. --rockersk08 03:18, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
I think the Synopsis should incorporate the Announcer's opening in some way. When I wrote the Lonely Snover and To thine own pokémon be true synopsis' I used the announcer's opening. When i wrote the Synopsis for DP121 and DP124 I used the announcer's opening statement. example "Following Dawn's Sandalstraw Pokémon Contest, our heroes have decided to stay in Sandalstraw Town for some Pokémon Ping Pong."

- That could work, but remember that the narrator's dialogue can vary from the Japanese and other dubs. If it is included, it should have the quotation marks to cite it as a direct quote. Still, I tend to overlook it. The general dialogue can also be paraphrased so that exact quotes are not needed. --rockersk08 17:29, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
The spoiler links policy was designed to preserve future events through redirect links, but since clicking on the link would take the user to the page, it would ultimately spoil any events based on the article's title and such. The policy only works on episode articles, but not on other articles. Should the policy be changed or removed?
In my perspective, I believe that this is where redirects are okay. Perhaps an event occurs in the original Japanese episode that hasn't aired as a dub yet, and those just following the dub may not want to know right away. In the article itself, redirects would stay on track with the episode events and everything up to that episode, and it would maintain order in the case of a Pokémon evolution, where users would wind up changing a bunch of redirect links. Also, in the character listing for episodes, links have to match as per the manual of style.
