ContentEdit

These considerations should be kept in mind when editing or adding an article on the Smallville wiki:

Source material for articlesEdit

Reliable sources are essential for the usefulness of the site. Besides the actual episodes, of course, acceptable sources for information for articles should come from officially-sanctioned or produced materials from Warner Brothers, The CW, or sometimes, DC Comics (when in relation to the show). A complete list of Canon is available here.

Spoilers/SpeculationEdit

Even if you've seen the future, it's better to edit after episodes air.
SuperclarkAdded by Superclark

Even though a general Spoiler warning is on the Main Page, the purpose of the Smallville wiki is to accurately reflect what was seen on the show and other related source material (see the Source material section above). As such, it is not a priority for the site to be a reliable, up-to-the-minute source for episodes that have yet to air. Articles should only include information from episodes that have already aired, even if spoilers are official, verified, or proven. This includes lists of appearances and character status. The exception to this are the individual articles for future episodes and new characters that will appear in future episodes, where spoilers are listed as they are released, and where it is understood that the episode has yet to air. However, until the episodes have aired, Template:Spoiler should be added to these pages. This policy is strictly enforced.

  • Spoiler Sources- Anyone can edit most pages on the Smallville Wiki. As a result, it is not an accurate or verifiable spoiler source. Every effort is made to make sure accurate spoilers are properly credited from their sources. Due to the actions of other websites, the Admins at the Smallville Wiki are committed to making sure spoiler sources are properly credited to their original sources with large, visible links. Please do not remove these links until the episode airs.
  • Speculation and/or Rumors include theories and possible outcomes based on known details, and should be limited to the talk pages only. It is fun to guess what will happen, but adding personal theories without sources to verify creates confusion to visitors who might not be able to discern what is a theory and what is a reported spoiler. Also, putting them on talk pages allows other editors to comment or respond.
  • Sometimes, Canadian stations broadcast episodes the day before they are scheduled. It is exciting to be the first to add details to the site, but please be considerate and do not do so until after it airs in the continental United States, generally 9:00 PM EST. Even though one is indeed adding accurate information, this is a common courtesy to visitors and editors who might not want to be spoiled shortly before they actually watch for themselves.

Other contentEdit

  • Sidebar- The sidebar navigation strip for the "Quartz" wiki skin contains the characters in the order in which the actors appear in the opening credits. The website software restricts editing the sidebar to Admins, so requests or suggestions for additions or changes to the links can be made to them. It also does not allow stylization or capitalization.
  • Timeframe- There are several instances throughout the series in which spoken dialogue or other clues indicate that the onscreen action takes place on the specific airdate of the episode. (Some examples being Commencement and Wither.) On the other hand, other episodes take place over several days, so one date cannot be assumed. However, by mentioning other dates or holidays, the show has consistently acknowledged that onscreen action is happening within a few weeks or a month of the episode's airdate. This is reasonably assumed on the wiki to put events in chronological order or estimate when things happened.
  • Guest actor pages- Traditionally, guest actors do not get their own articles on the Smallville wiki, even if they appeared in three or four episodes. On a television show as old as Smallville, it is impractical to create a good-quality page for each actor, especially if content is simply copy-pasted from another site (copyright infringement). It is more practical and useful to link to the actor's Wikipedia article or IMdB page instead.
  • In the Comics- Information from the comics might be official, but unless it is in an "In the Comics section," it should be referenced on the show as well before it is included on the wiki. (For example, Clark's middle name is Joseph or Jerome in the comics, but neither has been used on the show, so it is not on his page.) Like the Smallville Wiki, users can edit IMDb.com, TV.com and Wikipedia.org; as a result, these should not always be considered verifiable sources. Also, fan fiction and fan-created sites are not reliable sources of information for articles.

StyleEdit

  • Article names- Articles on this wiki follow the conventions of online wiki encyclopedias. You can read more about these guidelines in the Wikipedia:Manual of Style. Some general rules:
    • Article titles should capitalize the first letter and proper nouns, but leave the rest lower-case, unless it is a proper noun (like Kent Farm). This allows them to come up on a search query without specific capitalization. Examples: Meteor shower instead of [[Meteor Shower]]
    • Avoid starting article names with "The" or "A". Examples: Talon instead of [[The Talon]]
  • Point of view- Articles should be written in a neutral point of view, meaning it should be what everyone saw, and not just one person's opinion. If an editor feels an article does not reflect a neutral point of view, they are encouraged to edit it and improve it. Also, articles are written in third-person omniscient point of view. It is not appropriate to use first- or second-person pronouns such as "I", "we" or "you".
  • Tense- Plot summaries on individual episode pages are written in present-tense narrative. Plot summarization on character pages are reflections of what the character did in a particular year, so they are written in past-tense. Current status and personality sections on character pages are written in present-tense if the character is still alive, and past-tense if the character has died. (See the Character page conventions sections below for more information.)
  • Naming conventions- Characters are named on the wiki with first and last name (if known). Characters are often wikilinked the first time they are mentioned in an article. Episodes are written with their official name wikilinked and italicized. Ex. Reunion. For narration, episode names should be worked into the sentence so as to not break the plot summary. For lists, notes or other exposition, the actual episode name can be used.
Examples:
"Clark developed super-breath after catching an illness in the Phantom Zone." (as part of plot summary or narration)
vs
"Clark has developed new powers in Heat, Whisper, and Sneeze". (as a list)

Page conventionsEdit

EpisodesEdit

Each episode of Smallville has its own page with information in this order: summary, detailed recap plus any additional plot details, guest cast/recurring roles, music, notes, continuity, quotes, links. Episodes that have yet to air usually have a page containing official spoilers. Usually the page undergoes many edits before it airs as more spoilers are made available. Some editors choose to add speculation, but others might delete it. Here are some general conventions:

  • Summaries- Summaries may be original or official from the CW and should briefly cover each plotline in the episode.
  • Recaps- Recaps cover mostly every scene in the episode but generally do not contain direct lines of dialogue exchange. Pictures enhance the recap tremendously. Recaps are written in present tense. There is no specific length for recaps, but in general, try to avoid describing every tiny detail and action. All recaps should be original; please do not take recaps from TV.com or other copyrighted sources.
    • Other Sections- A few episodes have other sections that list things specific to the plot of the episode. (Examples: Scare and Truth).
  • Guest/recurring characters- Guest characters with names are usually listed. Unnamed extras (ex- Waiter, Store Customer, Doorman) are usually not. Recurring characters are those who have appeared in at least two episodes. Generally, guest actors do not get a page on the wiki. See the above paragraph for more about this policy.
  • Featured music- The music should be listed with the song title in quotation marks and the artist afterward. It is not necessary to state the scene in which the song was played unless clarification is needed. Not every episode has featured music. Usually if this section is absent, only original score was played in the episode.
  • Title- This section explains the significance of the title for each episode or comic book.
  • Notes- Notes are a bulleted list of objective observations for the episode. For example, notes can provide more information to things referenced in the episode, further explanations, or amusing facts. Also, things that might not be obvious to the viewer or glaringly obvious production errors can be pointed out in the Notes section as well. Plot details covered in the recap are not notes. Reviews, opinions, or details that can be argued or discussed can be put on the Talk page instead.
  • Continuity- Continuity is for things in the episode (such as characters, lines of dialogue, or objects) that refer to other episodes or sometimes, to the Superman universe. Some pages have discontinuity sections, which include things that directly contradict something in another episode. However, discontinuity can also be included as a note and not in its own section.
  • Quotes- Quotes are those from the episode the editor feels are significant. The editor should record them exactly as they are spoken. Put the speaker in bold with a wikilink, a colon, then the quote with no quotation marks. Separate sets of quotes with a half-line: <hr width=50%/> . Sometimes the quote needs clarification on to whom it was spoken, indicated by the person's name in italics and parentheses. Example- (to Clark) Try to avoid quotes that require a large amount of action description. Try to avoid deleting other editors' quote additions unless they are erroneous. There is no limit to number of quotes on a page, but editors should use discretion and try to avoid quoting the whole episode script.
  • External links- This section is for other places online that provide additional details on the specific episode. TV.com is usually included, but any site can be listed.
  • Talk pages can be used for any other discussion such as observations or reviews, or other subjective comments not appropriate for the article.
  • Green text- Throughout the wiki, green text is used to differentiate plot summary that happens in a dream sequence, flashback, or alternate reality, a device frequently used on the show. See a few examples on pages for Scare, Relic, Slumber, Labyrinth, and Lexmas. If the majority of users are opposed to this, the practice will be abandoned. Please do not remove the green text code on a page, but contribute an opinion on a talk page so the community can come to a consensus and maintain conformity among pages. Since this issue concerns readers moreso than editors, anonymous comments are welcome.

CharactersEdit

Generally, any guest character with a name qualifies to have their own page on the Smallville wiki. Sometimes minor characters are best served by having their character pages merged with other relevant pages (e.g. the many doctors on the Smallville Medical Center page). Or if multiple minor characters share the same background and fate, they will sometimes be combined (see Disciples of Zod).

When choosing a name for a character page, here are some general naming conventions:

Chloe desk
Full names should be used for character pages.
  • Use Normal Name - Use the non superhero name whenever possible. For example, Oliver Queen instead of Green Arrow or Victor Stone instead of Cyborg. If both a superhero and a human name exists, the human name should be the article name and the supername should be a redirect. The exception to this policy is Brainiac, as he has shed his human identity and appeared only as Brainiac or while possessing others since Season Six.
  • Avoid Unused Comic Names - Avoid names from the comics that are not actually used on the show. Examples include Kara Zor-El (the comic name for Kara Kent). If need be, the comic name can be a redirect to the name actually used on the show (e.g. Kara Zor-El is a redirect to Kara Kent).
  • Use Full Name - Use both the first and last name, if possible. If a last name isn't available, the first name will suffice if it's unique. Examples include Darius, and Raya. If a main character has a very recognizable first name, it can be used as a redirect (e.g. Clark, Lex, Lana, etc.).
  • Avoid Titles - Leave off honorific titles if possible. For example, Helen Bryce rather than Dr. Helen Bryce... or Margaret Isobel Thoreaux rather than Countess Margaret Isobel Thoreaux. If there is no full name, then a title can help supplement a first or last name (e.g. Duchess Gertrude, Dr. Hudson, or Deputy Harris).
  • Use Nicknames - If a character has a colloquial nickname, that's preferred over a longer more formal name. For example, Nell Potter is better and more recognizable than her full formal name, Eleanor Potter.

If a character name conflicts with an episode name, the character name takes precedence. Examples include Bizarro versus Bizarro (episode). As a counter example, the episode Kara takes precedence over the character name Kara, since Kara's full name is Kara Kent. If a character redirect conflicts with an episode name, the episode name takes precedence; examples include the episode Cyborg versus Victor Stone's superhero identity, Cyborg. A short disambiguation statement will usually appear at the top of both pages.

Every character page should use the Character Template infobox and also use an image. The image should be a screenshot from a recent episode, as opposed to promotional images, so that it is clearly that of the character and not the actor. It is not necessary to upload a new image after every episode, but if editors upload new images, please tag the old one for deletion.

Minor characters pages generally aren't long enough to require sections to help organize their content. That said, recurring characters can sometimes benefit from an Appearances section, especially for a character that appears in more than a few episodes (e.g. Sheriff Adams, Helen Bryce, or Oliver Queen). Also, characters with powers often benefit from Powers and Abilities and Vulnerabilities sections, even if they are only in one episode (e.g. Titan or Aldar).

Main characters also have their own page with information in the following order: Summary, Personality, a Year by Year plot summary, In the Comics, Trivia, Relationships, and See Also.

Here are some general conventions:

  • Summary- Summaries should briefly introduce the character, and should have an explanation of the character's current status in the show's plotline written in present tense (unless the character is deceased).
  • Personality- Personality should capture the essence of the character. Plot summary should be avoided here, if possible. Personality sections on character pages are written in present-tense if the character is still alive, and past-tense if the character has died. Personality sections have the danger of containing non-neutral point of view or opinions, so all users are encouraged to contribute to these sections to form a neutral, accurate description of a character. Try to describe traits that any viewer can see, regardless of personal opinion. Please include episode names and quotes using reference tags (<ref></ref>) that illustrate the characteristics.
  • Plot Summaries- An abbreviated plot summary goes here, written in past tense, with summaries of episodes and links to appropriate character and episode pages. If the plot summaries cover more than one season, they are typically broken apart into yearly sections (e.g. Clark Kent, Lana Lang).
  • In the Comics- If a character has appeared in comics, information about the comic version of this character can go here.
  • Trivia- This is a bulleted list of tidbits and trivia about the character. This is where to put facts that don't fit elsewhere on a character page.
  • Relationships- If appropriate, this is a brief description of significant relationships the character has had with other characters. If the relationship has its own page, then a link to that Relationship page should go here.

If appropriate, character pages can also sometimes have sections about Early Life (if the character has a backstory that precedes Season One), Powers and Abilities, Vulnerabilities, Quotes, and External Links.

Appearances are a character's physical presence in an episode. Appearances do not include photographs and images (such as the image of Green Arrow in Combat or the home video of Jonathan Kent that Clark and Martha are watching in Vengeance), or replayed scenes of other episodes in flashbacks or "Previously on Smallville" montages.

Certain main character have Appearances section with links to relevant episodes because they are not contracted to appear in every episode. However, these are in the process of being replaced with Categories. As such, main characters whose categories are complete (ex- Lois Lane) do not have Appearances sections.

RelationshipsEdit

Many of the important relationships on Smallville have been broken out into their own pages, while others are covered as a section on a character's page. Here are some general rules for when a relationship should get its own page or not:

  • Short relationship between Main character + Minor Character (even recurring) - This type of relationship is generally covered with a section on the minor character's page. For example, Clark and Alicia dated for three episodes during Seasons 3 and 4, and so their relationship is covered on Alicia's page. Clark's page has only a link to the description on Alicia's page.
  • Relationship between two Main characters - Because both characters' pages are already probably long and the relationship is likely to be ongoing (e.g. Clark and Chloe, Lex and Lana, etc.), these relationships are usually on their own page. If the relationship is fairly short (e.g. Jimmy and Kara), it doesn't necessarily need its own page. Generally, if a relationship is shown to be (or has the potential to be) significant to the show over several years, it warrants its own page. As a sidenote, friendships can be just as page-worthy as relationships. For examples, please see Clark and Kara, Clark and Pete, or Clark and Lex.
  • Love triangles between three Main characters - Important love triangles between three main characters usually get their own page. Examples include Clark, Lex and Lana and Clark, Lana and Chloe. (Please include only one comma after the first name).

One note: the order of character's names on relationship pages is significant. The characters' first names should be combined make up the name of the relationship page. Characters' first names should be listed in the order the actors are listed in the opening credits.

  • If two main characters have a relationship page, the first name should be of the actor who appears first in the credits (if the two actors' names have switched orders since the relationship began - as they did for Lex and Lana in Season 7, the article will be renamed to reflect the change, but redirects will remain in place.)
  • If a main character has a relationship with a minor character, the main character should be listed first. If a minor character subsequently becomes a main character (e.g. Lionel Luthor and Jimmy Olsen), the article should be renamed to list the actors in the order they currently appear. Similarly, if a main character leaves the show (e.g. Jason Teague, Jonathan Kent), the actor still appearing should be listed first.

If a relationship article is on its own page, it typically has sections with information in this order: summary, and a year by year plot summary, and a See Also. If the characters have history pre-dating Season one, sometimes an "Early Years" section will be added. Occasionally an "In the Comics" section will also be added, if the characters have a relationship in the DC Comics universe.

PlacesEdit

A place may qualify for its own page if it appears in multiple episodes (Wild Coyote, the Talon, Crater Lake), has a detailed history of its own (Fortress of Solitude, Smallville Medical Center, the Daily Planet, Belle Reve), or is important to a main character (Clark's loft, the Luthor Mansion).

If a place appears in only one episode (e.g. Windgate Club) or its history is covered well in a Character page (e.g. the McNally farm), then it probably doesn't qualify for its own page. More likely, the place can be covered in the relevant Episode or Character page.

If a minor location is mentioned in several episodes but doesn't seem significant enough to have its own page, it can be covered as a bullet point on one of the major places pages on the wiki (e.g. Smallville, Main Street, Metropolis). A redirect anchor pointed to the relevant place in the major places article can be helpful (e.g. Hobson's Pond).

Many place pages are short and don't need sections. If a longer article about a place is featured prominently in several episodes across several seasons, it may help to break it into sections based on years or by category (e.g. Fortress of Solitude, Smallville Medical Center).

If a place has sub-places, they can appear as a section within the place article. Examples include the Talon Apartment under the Talon article, and Kryptonian portal within the Kawatche Caves.

Like other pages on the wiki, places articles can sometimes have "In the Comics", "Trivia", "See Also", and "External Links" sections.

ObjectsEdit

Page Creation

There are many objects in the Smallville universe which may qualify for a page in the wiki. An object is more like to qualify for its own page if it satisfies these characteristics:

If an object doesn't satisfy at least three out of four of these characteristics, it most likely doesn't qualify for its own page on the wiki. When creating an object page, use the owner's name if it needs to be specified. For example, there have been several ships on the show, but only one of them belongs to Clark.

Like Wikipedia, the Smallville wiki is not an indiscriminate list of objects. Object pages should not be created just because an item exists and appears in an episode. For example, Chloe Sullivan has a PC on her desk at work; an object page called "Chloe's PC" is not notable and would not qualify for inclusion in the wiki. Additionally, if an object page can only restate plot summary covered on an episode page, it is probably not notable. Pages deemed not notable will most likely be deleted. To avoid putting work and effort into a page, only to have it be deleted, please carefully consider if an object is notable before creating a page. If in doubt, editors are encouraged ask an Admin or even other community members for their insight.

Under all circumstances, an object page should offer something beyond just a stub page. If there isn't enough information on the page to expand it beyond a stub, it should be merged into the relevant Episode, Character, or Place page.

Sections If appropriate, object pages can contain relevant plot summaries. If the object has special powers, it can have sections called "Powers and Abilities" or "Vulnerabilities". A Quotes section is also often very useful. Appearances sections can also highlight relevant episodes, and "See Also" sections can also link to related pages.

Editor PoliciesEdit

Merging/RedirectionEdit

Merging or redirecting is generally used when two articles contain similar information, or when several subjects fall under one main article but do not have enough information available to form a non-stub article without repeating information. Generally, merging is used with two non-stub articles, redirection is moving stub contents to a larger, more fully-formed article. With both, the original article links are usually maintained, not deleted, for searching and redirection purposes.

  • If a user believes an article should be redirected, it is permissible to redirect the article without discussion. If there is a dispute, it can be restored and a consensus should be reached to determine further action.
  • If a user believes an article should be merged, he or she is welcome to perform the merge on a good-faith edit policy. That is, the resulting article will accurately and efficiently contain information from both articles. However, if the editor is unsure of the usefulness of such a move, or how to proceed with the merge, he or she can open a discussion with the {{merge}} tag. A merge discussion is not simply a vote to Merge or Not Merge. It is an opportunity for other editors to contribute an opinion on how to proceed. Ultimately, the original editor should take the community opinion into consideration when deciding on a final action, then either merge the articles or close the discussion and remove the merge tag after a period of 60 days.
  • If a user does not agree with a merged article, a merge discussion should be opened or continued to prevent an edit war.

DeletionEdit

(This policy changes with the community; If you are so inclined to do so, feel free to contribute an opinion on the deletion policy on the Talk page.)

  • If a user believes an article or image should be deleted, a {{delete}} tag should be placed on the article page and a discussion should be started before action is taken.
  • If a user has uploaded an image or created a page or a template that doesn't work, or the user has changed his mind and would like for it to be deleted, an Admin will delete the page at the creator's request.
  • Articles that are created for the sole purpose of vandalizing the wiki will be deleted without discussion and the creator may be blocked. (See the blocking policy below).
  • Creating character pages before the episode airs is strongly discouraged; names get changed, last names are stated, or sometimes the character doesn't even appear in the episode after all. Articles created for future characters that turn out to be inaccurate or false may be deleted and/or moved by admins without discussion to preserve the wiki's accuracy and prevent redirects, as long as accurate information is retained or edited.
  • Speculation or reviews are welcome on talk pages, but creating pages based entirely on speculation or fan opinion is also strongly discouraged. The wiki policy is to state facts, so such pages will probably be redirected to a Talk page or deleted.

ImagesEdit

The community is in the process of creating additional guidelines for using images on this wiki. Please contribute an opinion to this policy on the Talk page.

  • All of the images used on this wiki are owned by the companies that produce the show: Warner Brothers and The CW Television Network. See the Screenshot template for more information. Uploaded images should contain the url of the source website.

Image UploadsEdit

The pictures on the Wiki are categorized by season. The screencaps are listed on the category pages in order of episode airdate. To prevent duplicate images, please view the category page to double-check to see if your screencap has already been uploaded. When you upload an image, please include the category, including the season and episode number, on the image description page.

For example, if you are uploading an image from Fever, it is the 16th episode of Season 2, so your category would look like this: [[Category:Screencaps from episode 2x16]]

TemplatesEdit

Use
  • There are three templates that describe the status of unfinished articles:
    • Editors should use the Stub template for articles that have a wealth of information available, but it has not yet been added to the page.
    • Editors should use the Work-in-progress template for articles that they themselves are actively adding to or making major changes.
    • Editors should use the Cleanup template for articles that need significant improvements in content, including grammar, tense problems, formatting, etc. The cleanup template is a notification that an article is far below quality standards for the site.
  • Other templates are Delete, Merge, Spoiler, Talk. They should be placed at the top of articles because they describe the status of the entire article.
  • The Character and Organization infoboxes should be placed at the top of character or organization articles, except for special cases where there are multiple characters or organizations (e.g. Disciples of Zod).
  • Cite and Split section tags should be placed inline with the text to which they pertain.

Directions
See Category:Templates for a complete list of templates in use on the wiki, and the individual template pages for empty syntax and instruction on how to transclude templates onto articles.

Behavioral PoliciesEdit

  • Assume good faith Assume that most people who work on the project are trying to help it, not hurt it.
  • Civility Being rude, insensitive or petty makes people upset and stops this site from working well. Try to discourage others from being uncivil, and be careful to avoid offending people unintentionally.
  • Editing policy Improve pages wherever you can, and don't worry about leaving them imperfect. Avoid deleting information wherever possible.
  • Ignore all rules Ignore every policy, guideline or any other rule may be ignored if it hinders improving this site.
Sherrif Ethan
Vandalism will be dealt with swiftly and effectively.
  • No legal threats Use dispute resolution rather than legal threats, for everyone's sake. If you do take legal action, please refrain from editing until it is resolved.
  • No personal attacks Do not make personal attacks anywhere on this site. Comment on content, not on the contributor. Personal attacks damage the community and deter users.
  • Ownership of articles You agreed to allow others to modify your work. So let them.
  • Sock puppetry Do not use multiple accounts to create the illusion of greater support for an issue, to mislead others, or to circumvent a block; nor ask your friends to create accounts to support you or anyone.
  • Three-revert rule Do not revert any single page in whole or in part more than three times in 24 hours.
  • Vandalism Vandalism is any addition, deletion, or change to content made in a deliberate attempt to compromise the integrity of this site. It is, and needs to be, removed as quickly as possible. Continually adding and re-adding erroneous information, even if it is not offensive, is considered vandalism because it compromises the accuracy of the site and creates more work for other editors to constantly remove it. Potential vandals should realize that Admins have many tools at their disposal to handle vandalism quickly and efficiently; it often takes a user considerably longer to vandalize an article than it does to restore it, and often results in the user being blocked, so users should really just find something better to do with their time.

Enforcing policiesEdit

  • Admins/Sysops. There are currently four Admins for this wiki. User:Kanamekun, User:Marikology, User:Mikean23, and User:Scarecroe . In addition, User:Angela of Wikia.com staff has Admin capabilities. Any editor is invited to bring concerns to any of these Users.
  • Blocking/Banning policy Users who vandalize articles with offensive, profane, or vulgar language will be blocked indefinitely for the first offense. Logged-in users who vandalize other ways will be given a warning for the first offense. Anonymous users will be blocked for a short period of time. If a user continues to be caught vandalizing the wiki, they will be blocked for a longer period of time. If it is obvious the user has tried to correct their erroneous edits, they might be given a warning.
    • Vandalizing also includes repeatedly removing useful, sourced information.
    • "It was just a joke! I'm sorry!"- If a user has seen the error of his vandalizing ways and wants to return to the wiki to provide useful edits, they can contact an Admin and ask to be unblocked.
    • Users might also be blocked for violating other Wiki policies and repeatedly ignoring warnings from Admins.
    • The Spoiler policy (see above) is strictly enforced. After a warning, users who continue to add spoilers and rumors will be blocked for the minimum time allowed (currently two hours). If they continue to add spoilers, the block length will increase.
  • Resolving disputes Please bring disputes to the attention of the Admins.

Legal and copyrightEdit

  • Copyrights All characters, images, and plotlines are owned by the creators and the companies that produce the show: Warner Brothers and The CW Television Network.
  • Copyright violations Copying large amounts of text from other websites (like episode recaps) can be considered a copyright violation by the author on the original site and should be done sparingly or with caution, and a link to the original site should be provided and stated as the source.
  • Fair use criteria
