The manual of style is a page that editors will be recommended to refer to before they make any edit on the wiki.

The purpose of the manual of style is to provide guidelines for users that want to help stylize the articles into professionally written pieces of work, serve as a guide for new editors to watch out for in articles, make articles consistent with each other, resolve edit disputes, and be a base of inspiration and education for customized style guides on other wikis or even personal works.

Since the manual of style serves as a guide for users to follow, it is a house style the wiki wants users to apply for the sake of quality and not as a rule to follow. This means two things: The users that have edits including elements disregarded in the manual of style will not be in trouble (unless it was to purposefully disrupt) and the user can "break the rules" if they feel their edits can improve something (in which case, it is still recommended to contact a moderator for their opinion).

The manual of style considers every aspect of how a page should look. This would include the technical aspects, its organization, its visual design and look, reference reliability and validity, and the sentence structures. More detail on the subjects targeted is below in their own sections.
