Please use proper style when trying to edit the page.

Spelling

Please use American English in the article, as the Baldi's Basics series was released in United States of America. Here is examples:

  • Color Check.png, Colour X.png
  • Behavior Check.png, Behaviour X.png
  • Gray Check.png, Grey X.png
  • Mustache Check.png, Moustache X.png

Link

  • Each article only has one link to the different page. To find a link, use a source editor, press 'Ctrl + F' keys (Windows) and type [[(Article link). You don't need to put ]] at the last because there are also piped links like [[Principal's Office|his office]].
  • Infoboxes and navboxes have a duplicated link from outside of them, but there should be only one link to the page within those boxes.

Content and Source

  • When copy and paste the game content, update log, summary or other content from the official website, make sure to keep the content original as possible. Even if there are typos or misspelling, do not fix these unless they are changed.
    • In case making a correction to these errors, please use {{Tt}} template. (Example: {{Tt|beofe|before}} -> beofe)
  • While using <ref> tag to make a reference, make sure to close the tag. Otherwise, it may make content under the reference invisible. Tag closure is also applied on other commonly used tags like <gallery>.
  • Make sure to put the proper external link under <ref> tag, if the content was originated from official website.
  • The {{Citation}} template is used at the end of the sentence when the content is coming from the official crews' social media network or websites, but there is lack of proper source of it.

Font style

  • Make sure to bold the article title on the top content.
  • Every title of the games, comics (except for in-game comics) must has italic font style.
  • All the file names are must inputted between the {{C}} template.
    • Example: {{C|Subtitle_En.json}} - Result: Subtitles_En.json
  • When making a bold texted link, make sure to put the bold text code inside of the text. (FandomDesktop support) Italic style works no matter the position of this code. - ''[[Baldi's Basics|'''Baldi's Basics''']]'' Check.png, '''''[[Baldi's Basics]]''''' X.png

Alternate names

Alternate names depending on games

Note that WD-NoSquee has '(Door Type)' text in Classic/Birthday Bash, but this community still uses just 'WD-NoSquee' instead.

Capitalization

One-worded

Make sure do not make spacing between them because they are officially called in the game files.

Past versions

In the trivia section of any article, the range of versions are stated as below:

  • Prior to V(version number), - The content is applied to the first version to the (version number) version.
  • In V(version number), - The content is only applied to the single version.
  • In V(version number1) to V(version number1), - The content is applied to the specific versions. Note that (version number1) should not be the very first version. The first version of Baldi's Basics Plus is V0.1 and other games and demos is V1.0.

Cut content

The cut content is the content that went completely removed from the game or got cancelled during the development.

Note that if the content has some differences between the previous and current versions, but it is still used on games, it is not discontinued. In that case, it should be listed in version differences.

File name

Every file must have descriptive file name, so the user can easily figure out the purpose or usage of the image.

Keep the filename as original. When you try to upload a texture or sprite from asset files, make sure to remove the asset's path.

Every audio file must have .ogg file format. It is because other file formats may not support audio widget on Fandom.

  • File:ChipCrunch.ogg (Check.png), File:ChipCrunch.wav (X.png, non-.ogg file), File:SFX ChipCrunch.ogg (X.png, no SFX_ in assets)

If you want to upload a file, but there is already a file with the same name, you can add additional words depending on the game/demo name or the latest version when it is used for the last time. Files with no additional name are usually used on Baldi's Basics Plus, or if there is no such file in Plus assets, then it is often supposed to be used on Baldi's Basics Classic.

A format when the file name starts with a lowercase letter or there is an underscore in the asset files:

Gallery

Rules

  • The gallery section must have official content.
  • The screenshot taken from the video is not permitted in the gallery section, even if it is from official material.
  • Any leaked screenshot by non-developers cannot be added in the gallery because the leaked content may not guarantee that it is official.

Setting

Standard: <gallery position="center">

Tabber and separated galleries:

<tabber>Image files=
;Sprites
<gallery position="center">

Tabber tag is not needed if there is only one category for the gallery.

Usage of the word "Ditto"

If there are other images with same caption as the first one, then the word "Ditto" is used instead. This is used for reducing redundancy.

Example 1 (Same topic):

Original content: Baldi/Gallery

Example 2 (Same topic, but with minor differences):

Original content: Johnny's Store

Audio

Quotes

If there are audios with subtitle and without it:

Audio Subtitle/Transcript Description
[[File:Quote file name 1.ogg]] Subtitle 1 The subtitle of this quote exists in the game file, and it is used in-game
[[File:Quote file name 2.ogg]] Subtitle 2 (unused) The subtitle of this quote exists in the game file, but it is unused in-game
[[File:Quote file name 3.ogg]] Transcript 1 (transcript only) The subtitle of this quote does not exist, so there is only transcript
[[File:Quote file name 4.ogg]] Subtitle 3
(Transcript 2)
The subtitle of this quote is different from the audio that it actually speaks

If there are audios with subtitle only:

Audio Subtitle Description
[[File:Quote file name A.ogg]] Subtitle A The subtitle of this quote exists in the game file, and it is used in-game
[[File:Quote file name B.ogg]] Subtitle B (unused) The subtitle of this quote exists in the game file, but it is unused in-game

If there are audios without subtitle only:

Audio Transcript Description
[[File:Quote file name X.ogg]] Transcript X Description of the audio file

Sound

If there is at least one sound with subtitle:

Audio Subtitle Description
[[File:Sound file name 1.ogg]] Subtitle 1 The subtitle of this sound exists in the game file, and it is used in-game
[[File:Sound file name 2.ogg]] Subtitle 2 (unused) The subtitle of this sound exists in the game file, but unused in-game
[[File:Sound file name 3.ogg]] N/A The subtitle of this sound does not exist

If there is no sound with subtitle:

Audio Description
[[File:Sound file name 4.ogg]] The subtitle of this sound does not exist

LoudWarning template

If the audio is too loud or static, the {{LoudWarning}} template is added in the description. Optionally, the subtitle or transcript can have bold text, if it is extremely loud.

Audio Subtitle Description
[[File:Loud.ogg]] Subtitle L1 A loud sound

WARNING: LOUD! LOUD.png

[[File:Extremely loud.ogg]] Subtitle L2 An extremely loud sound, so the subtitle or transcript has bold text (optional)

WARNING: LOUD! LOUD.png

TimedText namespace pages

TimedText namespace is used on subtitle of each sound. Note that if the sound does not have a subtitle or the subtitle is empty, then the TimedText namespace for this sound cannot be created. (Example: File:PT Instructions.ogg - The subtitle of this sound exists in the json file, but it is empty)

List of official subtitle files from Baldi's Basics Plus:

  • Subtitles_En.json (English)
  • Subtitles_Fr.json (French)
