The following are the regulations of Clone Trooper Wiki. Each regulation should be followed by all users. This is Regulation 1 - Edits, explaining the proper way to contribute to articles:
Regulation 1 - Edits
Section 1A, Capitalization
The following must be capitalized:
Proper nouns (names, battles, wars, planets, eras, and other)
Beginning of sentences (even in numbered or bulleted lists)
Clone trooper should not be capitalized, unless at the beginning of a sentence. The same applies to any aspect or variant of the word.
Section 1B, Spelling
Proper spelling must be used at all times and in all articles, photos, and other.
Section 1C, Lists
Bulleted lists are one type of list. They are represented by indented black squares.
Bulleted lists should be used for making lists
Bulleted lists should have capitalized letters at the beginning
Bulleted lists should be represented by an asterisk (*) at the beginning of a new line. More asterisks should be used to increase the indentation.
They should be used in infoboxes to create lists, and deeper ones will denote when something is grouped under something else. A line break (type <br>) can also be used to display lists.
Numbered lists are another type of list. They are represented by chronological numbers.
Numbered lists are usually used to show numbers of something
Numbered lists are represented by a hashtag (#) at the beginning of a new line. More hashtags are used to increase the indentation.
Section 1D, Headings
Headings are used to show different sections of an article.
Some examples are:
==Heading 2=====Heading 3=======Heading 4====
Section 1E, Punctuation
The following rules for punctuation are as follows:

Sub-Section 1E.2, Out-wiki use
Apostrophes (') must be used for:

Contractions (such as can't or don't instead of cannot and do not)

Abbreviations (ranks, months, titles, etc)
Ellipses should be used differently (see Section 1C.1)

Semi-colons (;) must be used for:
Making compound sentences
Ending some sentences
Question marks (?) must be used for:
Ending an interrogatory sentence
Section 1F, Assumptions
These rules apply when evidence is not directly stated, but you can come to an assumption that something is true:
The assumption should be reasonable. For example, if you see a clone who always appears with a unit, shares their armor and tributes, but it is not directly stated that he is part of it, you may put it down.
If you are unsure, you can leave a message on the talk page, addressing that issue. Any other editors who have thoughts on your subject should place their comments underneath.
If you believe something is true, you must cite your work with a source (or sources) and/or an explanation as to how you came to that conclusion.
Any user may remove information from a page if permission allows. If another user has a problem with their actions, they may approach a CO, contact the editor who removed information, or leave a message on the talk page.
Some reasons for deletion of a page are:
Page consists only or mostly of gibberish
Does not relate to the wiki
Copied completely from another trusted website
The page is fanon and therefore not real
Too specific of an article
An example would be Hevy's Training Helmet
Any other reason that the editor believes to be valid
Some reasons for removing information from a page are:
Does not relate to the wiki
Information is fanon
Copied from any trusted website
Section 1H, Other
Some other rules include:
Edit summaries are not required. However, they are highly recommended for easier navigation and identification of edits.
Putting false summaries are not allowed, especially if it is an attempt to hide vandalism.
Only the user can edit their userpage. Other editors need permission to edit it, unless it helps the wiki and no appearance is changed. Otherwise, a message should be left on the message wall.
