Please be careful to use proper spelling and grammar. If you run into errors on other pages, correct them.
Keep articles factual only. Use the comments section to state your opinion.
Stay on topic. If you can relate an article to Battle Spirits, it's fair game for this wiki. If not, it's probably too off-topic.
Please check to see if an article exists before you create it! This has so far been the number one issue, so I can't stress it enough. To avoid confusion, if you make an article, try to link it in the appropriate section (ie: if you make a spirit card from BS10, link to it on the card list.)
