Introduction

For ease of access, Pluralpedia promotes some standard formatting, crediting, and grammatical conventions. Because this is a public-access project, nothing will be perfect, but adherence to this guide is greatly appreciated!

Templates

For Terms

See this template for entering new terminology into the wiki.

For Categories

See this template for creating new categories.

Word Choice

Pronouns

Personal pronouns (you, I, we, us, my) are not recommended. This is an objective, abstract collection of terminology. Sometimes these are unavoidable, though.

Referring to System Members

To keep this wiki inclusive, the term "alter" and "part" are not to be used when describing a member of a system when not on specific pages. "Headmate" is the preferred way to refer to them.

Medical vs. Community Terminology

This project is meant to encompass all plurality-related definitions and descriptors. As such, both medical (alter and specific diagnoses) and community-created (mesosian, for example) labels will be listed and supported.
