Plagiarism - it is totally unacceptable to cut and paste content from other websites. If you can't state ideas in your own words, leave a link to your source in the talk page and someone will look over it later.
References - while we don't have the reference functionality at the moment, I'd like contributors to leave links to their sources in talk pages - this way when references are implemented, these links can be installed in the article.
Only 'canon' or admissible evidence belongs in the body of an article. Fanon and other non-canon facts must be separated into a clearly named section of the article. Conflicts between higher- or lower-level admissible evidence should be brought up on the talk page in question.
Headings - please don't overuse headings. Every paragraph does not need a heading.
Images - it is almost always better to use the thumbnail functionality instead of inlining a full-size image. Every example of something does not need an inlined image. Link to image collections through references.
