POV

Here on the Kim Possible Wiki, we have several points of view, mostly in-universe. (See also: Manual of Style)

In-universe

Most articles on this wiki are written from an "in-universe" (IU) point of view. This means that it is written as if someone from the 'Kim Possible universe was speaking, someone who lives in the same town as Kim and Ron.

For example, use:

"Kim's mother Ann later met a man named James."

instead of:

"As seen in "Tick-Tick-Tick", Kim's mother married a man named James."

There are different ways of using the IU style of the POV depending on the article-type.

Characters, objects, and locations

On articles that are seen in or mentioned in episodes, especially characters, objects, and locations, use a tense that is completely in-universe. This involves writing as if you are in the Kim Possible universe. Preferably use past tense. The only out-of-universe part of the core of these articles are when citing sources.

When referencing a character, full names (Kimberly Ann Possible, Drew Theodore P. Lipsky, etc.) should be used the first time a character is introduced in the series, and on the character's biography page. Afterwards, use just their first name whenever possible.

For relationships between characters, use the term the character would use. Examples: "son" for when Mr. Stoppable talks to Ron, "grandma" when Kim talks to Nana. The code for these nicknames would be: [[Ron|son]] and [[Nana Possible|grandma]]. Shorter redirects are already in place for most characters, so that [[Ron]] can be used instead of [[Ronald Stoppable]] or [[Ronald Stoppable|Ron]]

Neutrality

On this wiki, we always write articles from a neutral point of view. This means, when writing an article, never "take sides."

For example, you are taking the side against Ron when you say that "He is really annoying when he overreacts at seeing a monkey". You are clearly on no one's side when you say "Ron tends to overreact when seeing a monkey".
