Process

Here at the Manga Summary Guild, you pick up jobs from the Jobs section below, and write the summary for it. We do jobs by arcs, meaning that all the chapters from one arc should be on the job list at one time. If an arc is complete then the Guild Master will post the new jobs. All Jobs are worth the same amount of Jewels, and at the end of the month, IamJakuhoRaikoben will tally all the points and whoever has earned the most Jewels will be called the Mage of the Month. If you see a job that you want to take, simply put *taken* and your signature beside it. Once you are finished, place *jobcompleted* beside it, and it will be checked for completion.

When signing up for a job, please use ~~~ instead of ~~~~ so that you're timestamp isn't left.

Summary Guidelines

Now below are the Guidelines to keep in mind when writing summaries and they are also things that might be helpful if you writing a chapter summary for the very first time. They are also designed to comply with wiki best practice.

1. Please keep in mind that this is a wiki and so please do not speculate when writing the chapter summary. Just describe things as they unfold, and when in doubt, go for neutral tone and wording.

2. Links - please consider providing one where you think that the reader of the summary might want more information on either a character or a term.

3. Please do not forget to fill in the other chapter details when, before, or after editing the summary, such as the characters in order of appearance list and the powers and techniques list.

4. The Summaries should be written with in universe wording meaning terms such as the scene then switches or a flashback begins or the chapter begins with shouldn't be in the articles.

5. The articles should have a some pictures and the pictures should correspond to the text that is directly next to it. The pictures should alternate meaning if a picture is left in a previous paragraph then it should be right in the next. Also, our site policy is to use tankōbon images only so you should ask ChaosKnight for all images that you need, and if you upload your own images mark them with the category Needs Replacement by Tankōbon.

6. The chapter page should go in this order Introduction (the introduction should not have a header that says introduction), Summary, Characters In Order of Appearance, Fights, Magic, Spells and Abilities Used, and then Navigation.

7. Chapters must have a one line summary. Which is essentially a two to three sentence recap of the entire chapter that goes in the introduction.

Characters In Order of Appearance

To list characters, use the wikitext #[[Character Name]]

For example...

  1. Natsu Dragneel
  2. Lucy Heartfilia
  3. Mirajane
etc.


Fights

Each chapter should have a "Fights" section between "Characters in order of appearance" and "Powers and Techniques used."

Fights should be listed chronologically (in the order that they happened or began in that particular chapter) and organized using bullets by typing an asterisk ( * ) before the name of the fight. They should be set to default size, not bold or italicized, and should be linked to the appropriate fight page. When a fight concludes, add "(concluded)" to that particular chapter to indicate that the fight ends in that chapter. If there are no fights in an chapter, put "None" in the Fights section. If a fight begins and ends in the same chapter simply put that it (started and concluded) however if it simply started in that chapter then (started) is not listed.

For example, a proper listing for Chapter 1 would look like:

What is a fight and what's not?

  1. A "fight" will be considered to be the time from the initiation to the end of physical combat between at least 2 opponents in present time. They must be considered serious contests. Training sessions, petty brawls, and flashbacks to previous fights will not be listed as fights.
  2. If opponents physically engage in combat during an chapter, it should be listed in the section as a fight.

Special circumstances

  1. If opponents physically engage each other (i.e. clash swords) moments before an chapter ends, add the appropriate fight to the list. If opponents are talking or moving to engage without making contact and the chapter ends just before they clash, do not add it to the fights list.
  2. If a fight (or the conclusion of a fight) carries on to the next chapter, list it on the next chapter summary as well, and so on until the fight ends.
  3. If a fight concludes but a winner/loser or draw is not clearly established or is uncertain, continue the fight into the next chapter summary and add "(concluded)" after the name of the fight.


Magic, Spells, and Abilities Used - Example

To aid you in writing the powers & techniques section, here is an example of what it should look like. If there are no powers or techniques used, just write "None" under the heading. A couple of points that need clarifying:

The Magic, Spells, and Abilities Used sections should follow the example below, like the character pages follow the Layout Guide:

Magic used

Spells used

Abilities used

  • Hand to Hand Combat
  • Swordsmanship

Armors used

Weapons used

Items used
