Policy
This page documents an official Deltora Quest Wiki policy.

It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.

Content that is posted on Deltora Quest Wiki canon articles must be verifiable. In other words, all information treated as fact on this site must be able to be supported by a reliable, published source.

In order to guarantee the accuracy of information on Deltora Quest Wiki, encyclopedic references must be used where it would be logical to do so. To avoid difficulties associated with readability, only information that has been challenged or is likely to be challenged, such as quotations, require citations.

Adding references

Content that is posted on Deltora Quest Wiki canon articles must be verifiable. In other words, all information treated as fact on this site must be able to be supported by a reliable, published source.

When you expand a page with information coming from a certain books, add <ref name=Book abbreviation>{{Cite|<book title>}}</ref> after the new bit of information.

E.g. To cite information coming from the first book of Deltora Quest 1, "The Forests of Silence", add <ref name=TFS>{{Cite|The Forests of Silence}}</ref>.
E.g. To cite information coming from the first book of The Three Doors, "The Golden Door", add <ref name=TGD>{{Cite|The Golden Door}}</ref>.

Now what is the use of those abbreviations? By providing a name for the reference, we are able to shorten the reference when it is used multiple times in the same article. The first time a reference is used in a text, it is written in full, and the second time, it can be shortened to simply <ref name=Book abbreviation />

E.g. <ref name=TOD>{{Cite|Tales of Deltora}}</ref> is shortened on second usage to <ref name=TOD/>

When adding references to a page that previously did not contain any references, include the following title at the bottom of the page:

== References ==
{{Reflist}}
