Contributions

Language

  • This is an English language wiki and thus you are asked to edit in English. The only exception is the original Japanese content in terms of the characters, songs, game, anime, coords, etc. and other official foreign content relating to the episodes and characters. This includes articles, forum posts, blogs, article comments, and message walls. If your first language is not English, but you have enough knowledge and understanding of it to comprise basic English grammar and sentence structure, even if it is not that good, then you are asked to use it. If not, and you only know your mother language, then you will be redirected to an Aikatsu Wiki for that language if one exists, or will be asked to find a compromise that will allow you to communicate in English.
    • The only exception to this case is if there is an admin that speaks that language, and they have permitted it then you may speak your mother language to them on their message walls or if an admin has permitted you to address another in that language.
