Things ''not'' to include: quality judgments (don't say how much it sucked/how awesome it was), critical reception (that's just a specific variant of quality judgments), recommendations (don't tell us whether or not we should check it out), plot spoilers. And whatever you do, ''do not copy text from the {{Wikipedia}} page.'' That is UsefulNotes/{{Plagiarism}} and copyright infringement and it is ''bad.''

Whatever you do, it does ''not'' belong in boldface-font (even though ''Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}'' does that). Most works are in ''italic fonts'', made by typing [=''italic fonts''=]. Shorter works have "quote marks" around them, and a select group have no emphasis added at all. For more information, read Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample#EmphasisForWorkNames. There's also no good excuse for [[Administrivia/LinkingToAnArticleWithinTheArticle making it a link on its own page]].

This step is nice and quick. Go to the "Tools" menu on the left side of the screen. There should be a button that says "set page type". Click on it and set the page type to "work". There you go.\\

This is only necessary if the title includes punctuation; otherwise, skip this step. Under the "Tools" menu on the sidebar, find the "customize title" link and click it. Fill out the form to add punctuation, correct capitalization, and so on. Once a moderator approves it, it'll automatically be applied. More detailed instructions for this step can be found at Administrivia/HowToMakeACustomTitle.

You can use the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/uploadform.php Image Uploader]] to upload an image for the page. Box art or official promotional art (such as a theatrical release poster for a film) is the standard for most media. See Administrivia/HowToPickAGoodImage for more info. If you're not sure, you can just skip the image; it looks nice, but it's not required.
