Alien species wiki: Point of viewEdit
This policy reflects the point of view that should be expressed within articles. Point Of View is, in layman's terms, how the article is written. The article should be written as if the alien species you are writing about is real. (Example: Correct: "The Reavers are, at least genetically, human in more or less every way." Incorrect: "The Reavers are an alien that is found in the Firefly television show.") It is, however, okay to write about what television show they are from, and what role they play, as long as you do so under the appropriate heading (i.e.:In Firefly). Aliens from video games should never be written as if the person reading is looking for a battle guide. That, too, is okay under its own section. The goal of Alien species wiki is to create an encyclopedia for people to read about the alien species. If the reader wants a guide on how to defeat that certain alien in a video game, they can look it up on the internet. Articles should always be written in third person, and never in first. If it is, the article will need a major overhaul writing wise. Please always take this policy into advisement when creating/fixing an article.
