This page describes one of Memory Alpha's policies and guidelines.

Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page.

When you write (or rewrite) an article, make sure that you take the time to balance the page's appearance and organization. For example, don't write a few short sentences of text and then include a long list of links – if a visitor wants to read an article on a certain subject, they would much rather find concrete paragraphs providing information instead of a list of links to other pages!

Naturally, there are exceptions to this rule. Most often, a brand-new article (or episode listing) will have only a small amount of information about it, and a long list of references to other articles. It's okay to have an unbalanced page initially – as long as you (or someone else) fixes it later.
