This page is considered a guideline on STOWiki.

It illustrates standards of conduct, which many editors agree with in principle. However, it is not policy.

General rules

  • All UGC content must be restricted to one (top-level) article per Foundry mission in the dedicated "Foundry" namespace. (Placing the article in the "Foundry" namespace is as easy as starting the title with Foundry: as demonstrated below.)
  • The article must follow the naming convention Foundry:[Name] ([ID]), where [Name] is a placeholder for the mission name and [ID] is the placeholder for the unique identifier of that mission.
E.g.: Foundry:The Longing (ST-HUCHYXC8R)
  • The filenames for images uploaded for foundry articles must begin with Foundry- and must be a reasonably descriptive name, as in not using the generic screenshot date and time.
  • Use the style and formatting described in the guide on foundry mission articles for your mission page.
  • All authors are required to use the UGC info template on their top-level mission article that will automatically categorize their content, but may not add other categories manually.
  • The article should be written in English.
  • The article must not be linked from any pages of the standard namespace (i.e. you may link to them from another UGC article, a talk page, or your user profile page).
  • However, UGC articles may link to any other article.


  • Authors are allowed to add articles discussing individual characters, planets, etc. on sub-pages of the mission article.
E.g.: Foundry:The Longing (ST-HUCHYXC8R)/U.S.S. Mayflower, Foundry:The Longing (ST-HUCHYXC8R)/New Nagasaki Colony, Foundry:The Longing (ST-HUCHYXC8R)/Ben Gillian
