Episode pages[edit]

Do you usually create the episode articles for Modern Family? The last three or four episodes don't have articles. I would create them, but I wouldn't know where to start. — Confession0791 talk 09:26, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Confession0791. I usually do when I have free time...and I am in the mood :) but I don't have the exclusivity on them. Some other editors created some of them. It's not necessary the episode articles to be created right away but if you feel like you want to start making them, go ahead and I (or someone else) will make changes where it's necessary or add things on them. You can copy the structure from a previous episode and make the changes for the new one. Just be sure to reference the reviews you will add on the article and the plot to not be too much detailed.
To get a link to start editing, just type on the search box the title of the episode and click enter. That will lead you to a red link which you can click and start creating. In the case of the next episode that is missing (Strangers in the Night (Modern Family)), a page already exists but it's a redirect to Season 6. In this case, you just go to the page and click edit. Remove the redirect and start editing to create a full article. TeamGale 10:18, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
I created redirects for all the all the episodes that don't have pages, plus two upcoming episodes (see here). So that's done. — Confession0791 talk 02:31, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
When you create episode pages, how do you go about it? Where do you find your sources? — Confession0791 talk 00:45, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Hello Confession0791. The only parts that need sources are the ratings and the reviews sections. The rest don't need something. Since the episode has aired, the episode itself can be used as a "source" for the plot and the basic things on the infobox for pages like these. The plot has to be written by someone who has seen the episode on their own words, without copying a summary from other sites because that violates the copyright rule of Wikipedia. For fiction (such as an episode or movie summary) you can write the plot by yourself as long as you just describe what happened to the episode without analyzing or giving personal opinion or conclusions about something. That's a primary research and it's not accepted in Wikipedia. Also, in the plot try to stay on the basic things for someone to understand what happens in an episode but don't give every detail of the episode. That will make the plot extremely long and it's not easy for someone to follow. The plot can be a little longer if the episode has many plotlines to include or is a little complicated. For example, the episode Las Vegas was one of the "complicated" episodes. But ratings and reviews have to be sourced. Those you can usually find on Google or directly at the sites that post reviews.

Contractions[edit]

What's wrong with one "it's" or n't word? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.1.100.168 (talk) 22:54, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

It's not that there is something wrong with them but it's not a formal writing to be used in an Encyclopedia. It's preferable in articles to not be used. See also Wikipedia:Contractions. TeamGale (talk) 23:13, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
