Style and format[edit]

General[edit]

  • Transformers (plain text, without italics) should be used when describing the fictional universe, franchise, or related phenomena:
e.g. The Transformers franchise is one of the most lucrative in television history.
e.g. In the Transformers fictional universe, Optimus Prime is an Autobot leader.
  • Transformers (italics) should be used when referring to specific series, genres, episodes, and movies:
e.g. The Transformers television series debuted in the US in 1984.
  • Since the name of the original series is properly Transformers, and to promote clarity, full in-text references to the original series should generally appear as the retronym Generation 1.

Wikilinks/article names[edit]

  • Article names will utilize the plural form of Transformers and the same page name with a singular form, if it exists, will redirect to the plural page.
  • For instance, Bumblebee (Transformer) redirects to the proper page, Bumblebee (Transformers); similarly, Ratchet (Transformer), the singular (without a trailing -s) redirects to the proper page, Ratchet (Transformers) (with the -s at the end).
  • This consistency will enable more efficient searching and editing, prevent edit wars/scuffles (this has happened with article names in the past), and provide a uniform format to individual pages.
