So there's a vote up at the noticeboard about whether to change characters' manual of style. This one is also pretty outdated, and I've recently took the task of changing up GTA V mission pages where I've used a different style (can be seen in Prologue, Franklin and Lamar, and Repossession so far) that I've posted below.

Here's the (proposed) updated Manual of Style

  • Intro (No headings required for opening section) should contain Template:Infobox mission and Template:Quote (notable quote during the mission, no links allowed in quotes). The intro should also contain short summary about the mission.
  • Description/Plot (only one type of heading to keep pages consistent so it's a decision between "Description" and "Plot")
  • Gameplay (uses detailed information on mission objectives, technically a walkthrough divided into sections)
  • 100% Objectives (TBoGT only, no heading colors - they're a bit pointless in my opinion)
  • Gold Medal Objectives (GTA V only, no heading colors - they're a bit pointless in my opinion [in fact, they haven't ever been used for V missions])
  • Enemies (if any. might remove this section, or keep it but add a detailed description on the enemy count and their locations)
  • Aftermath (where applicable)
    • Rewards (might remove, it's kind of integrated into "Gameplay")
    • Post-mission phonecall (if any)
    • Deaths (if any)
    • General Changes (eg. map changes, business changes, etc., if any)
    • Newspaper Articles (eg. "Los Santos Meteor Newspaper". each paper type is it's own section. if any)
    • LifeInvader Posts (if any)
    • Bleeter Posts (if any)
    • Weazel News (if any)
  • Transcript
  • Gallery (photos of cutscenes and gameplay, no limits although it'd be advised not to add a ridiculous amount of photos [eg. ~30 photos is okay for a long, action packed, mission but it's definitely not okay and an overkill for a short, slow-paced, mission]. no low quality photos, they must be clearly visible, and must also follow the image policy)
  • Video Walkthrough
  • Mission Soundtrack (where applicable)
  • Trivia
  • See Also (where applicable)
  • References (if any)
  • Navigation

This would help to add more information and detail into pages, on top of making it look a bit nicer.

That sounds great. I'd say go for it ;) Thegtaseeker96 (talk) 23:17, November 12, 2015 (UTC)
