Point of View
Articles should be written as if you are there watching the events take place as they happen, and should indicate some familiarity with the characters. This is called "writing in-universe". For the most part, descriptions are written in present tense, though past tense may also be used when describing something that has already taken place.
- Kaylie faints on the beam during the Worlds tryouts, and Austin catches her.
Grammar and Punctuation
When writing articles it is important to follow these rules of the English language:
- Don't use netspeak or any similar slang and avoid abbreviations in articles. We are compiling a professional resource for Make It or Break It fans.
- Keep your writing around a 6th Grade reading level. You don't need to fill it with big words just to make it sound smarter, especially if you're not certain how the word should be used.
- Vary your words. When writing, try to vary the words you use and the length of your sentences. It makes things sound more interesting.
- Capitalize when appropriate.
- Use correct punctuation. This includes commas, periods, quotation marks, and apostrophes. Please don't abuse semicolons.
- Know the difference between homophones: there, their, and they're; here and hear; it's and its; who's and whose.
- Capitalize the first word of every sentence.
- Capitalize proper nouns.
- Capitalize the first, last, and important words in a title.

- I love to watch MioBi to see Sasha's abs.
Only the first appearance of a term with an existing page should be hyperlinked per article.
- In episodes, the introductory paragraph should not have links.
- The Make It or Break It title should not have link.
To link to another article inside Make it or Break it Wiki, you must put link page here around it. To link to an article in Wikipedia, use text to display. If an article does not exist by that name, the link will show up as dark red, like this.
