Our project is designed to help collaborate a group effort in improving all articles related to the television series SpongeBob SquarePants (characters, cast, crew, episodes, seasons etc.). Our goal is to expand and improve all articles in relation to SpongeBob SquarePants.
"SpongeBob SquarePants" should be correctly capitalized on all articles.
Please help us improve episode articles here. Please, no trivia, no quotes, and no original research. Quotes can be placed at Wikiquote. Once an episode article is good enough, it will be placed back on its original page. Screenshots and title cards should be uploaded once the episode article has been improved and is placed back on its original page. This is to reduce the amount of orphaned images. Also, for the individual season articles, help provide sources and other information outside of plot details to strengthen the articles.
Expansion - Many articles need expanding, please try to help us with these. These include game articles (See games section on template and book information here.
Images - Make sure all SpongeBob-related images contain copyright tags and are categorized with this category
Categorization - Make sure all SpongeBob-related articles are categorized.
Episode titles - When creating a new episode page, if the article exists as something else, name the article Episode title (SpongeBob SquarePants)
Moving pages - When moving a page, if the page is already created, please do not copy and paste. Please fill out a form at Wikipedia:Requested moves.
Tags - If you see any tags on any SpongeBob article, (i.e. cleanup, wikify, etc.) please notify the WikiProject here. This will make it easier for project members to fix whatever problem there may be.
Trivia - Per WP:TRIVIA, trivia is not recommended. Please try to incorporate relevant trivia into the rest of the article.
When describing something, please do not use words like "you will notice" or "if you..." etc. See Wikipedia:Avoid weasel words for further information.
When writing a new article or making changes to an existing one, please adhere to the manual of style. For example, formal writing on Wikipedia is preferred. Therefore, the use of contractions should be avoided.
Writing about fiction - In-universe perspective should not be used when writing about fiction. In-universe perspective includes plots framed as biographies and the birth and death dates of fictional characters. Instead, use perspective of the real world.
This article has no real significance to the project, but it covers additional topics of general or specific interest, some of which could be described as trivia, though all are notable in their own right. Others may be articles of high importance to another project that have an indirect connection with SpongeBob SquarePants. The category was created by the work group of WikiProject Animation to counter-balance "top importance" and to place "mid-importance" into the actual middle. In addition it serves to separate trivia from articles of low but significant importance.
