Welcome to The Handmaid's Tale Wiki! The Community Portal is where this wiki community comes together to organize and discuss projects for the wiki. To see the most recent discussions, click the Discussion tab above or leave a message at the "Watercooler".
- Only post things that have relation to canon sources:
- Only add information that is valid and verifiable: Unless you're editing articles about the storyline itself (episodes and chapters), reference the episode or chapter where the information you're adding is taken from - at least once per paragraph. Using braces ("The Word"), footnotes , or a simple link for the citation is up to you.
- Please do not post anything in the article body that is bias. (For example, Gilead is an illegitimate regime from a hostile takeover.). Yes, everyone has an opinion, but this is an informational website. Express your opinion in a comment, a blog post, or a discussion. (See below: "Want to discuss stuff?")
- Do not edit someone else's userpage or blog posts without their consent.
- As said before, leave opinions in the comments.
- Please speak respectfully to other users. No harassing, threatening or insulting others.
- Do not post any vulgar content. Swearing is allowed to a certain extent when used as part of normal speech and not directed at someone (eg. "That was fucking awesome!" is ok, "You're a fucking bitch" is not).
How to help out
- If you want to help but you're not sure where to start, try improving the various stub articles by adding content. Remember to reference the source.
- Work on relationships and other theme pages.
- Create galleries and snapshot illustrations for episodes and characters.
- You can find a list of useful templates on Category:Templates.
- If you need help editing, you could start with Help:Editing or the tutorial.
Want to discuss stuff?
- If you want to discuss anything specific to an article, you can use the comment section below it.
- To work up story content more elaborately and share your questions and answers with the community for discussion, the best thing to do is to write a blog post, which has an own comment section below it for your readers. Categories can be added to name the topics your essay refers to; to link to your essay from a related article, use its "Reference" section.
- For more general discussions you can use the discussion forum, the Watercooler Forum for technical stuff, or Discussion tab of this page for remarks about the community itself.
