Main guide

Using "you"

Every article (Story-Time at Freddy's articles are the only exception) should use the name "Jack" or "Jack Kennedy", instead of "we", "you", or "the player" to avoid confusing the readers. Whereas, Story-Time at Freddy's articles should use the name "Jeff" instead of "we", "you" or "the player" to avoid confusion.

CORRECT INCORRECT
"Jack will pray to Godred." "You will pray to Godred."
"Dave can be seen inside the Flipside." "We can see Dave inside the Flipside."
"Fritz will tell Jeff that the place is ultra-haunted." "Fritz will tell us that the place is ultra-haunted."

Another note that you should always avoid writing in the first-person when writing articles, especially in character pages. Examples - "I found Dave's lunchbox", "Fighting against the animatronics is kinda difficult for me.", etc.

Formality

Always make sure to use words in articles like "going to", "want to", etc, instead of "gonna", "wanna", etc.

CORRECT INCORRECT
"The Puppet is going to appear inside the pizzeria." "The Puppet is gonna appear inside the pizzeria."
"Jack has got to go home after 6PM." "Jack has gotta go home after 6PM."
"Breadbear wants to kill Jack." "Breadbear wanna kill Jack."

Referencing game names

When referencing game names you should always either reference the short name such as "DSaF" or the longer version "Dayshift at Freddy's". Alternatively, you can reference the main series of games' names as "First Game", "Second Game", etc. For the first game, it must be referenced without a number since that is it's official title. For Dayshift at Freddy's 2, it should stay as "DSaF 2" or "Dayshift at Freddy's 2" and not include ":Electric Boogaloo". Lesser known official games should be referenced by their full game such as "Project Save the Kiddins".

CORRECT INCORRECT
"In the first game, Jack can kill the kids." "In DSaF 1, Jack can kill the kids."
"Project Save the Kiddins takes place in the Utah Location." "PSTK takes place in the Utah Location."
"DSaF 2 features the most endings." "Dayshift at Freddy's 2: Electric Boogaloo features the most endings."
