Some Wikisimpsons members have formed a project to better organize efforts to write and improve articles about characters. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page, or sign up below.

Project Characters


Project Characters aims to write articles on all one time and recurring characters of the Simpsons cartoon.

How you can help

You can help by opening the Character Guide and selecting any character that is a stub (or not a stub) and expand it using your general knowledge or from other facts and figures. Some of the existing character articles need to be modified to comply with the project standard (see below). You can check Category:Character stub to see which articles need expanding.

Some articles need pictures. Help them by adding a picture of the character by uploading a new one. If you see an article without the infobox template, add one immediately.


To join the project, simply add your name to the bottom of the list. If you are unsure on how to do this, ask Smiley12 or another admin for assistance.

Category:Minor Characters

As some of you may have seen, the Minor Characters Category has been deleted, The new goal is to remove all characters from that Category. There are currently a few more left for us to do. The reason why the category was deleted was because characters that appeared in more than one episode go in Category:Recurring characters and characters that have only appeared once go in Category:One time characters, therefor, I (Smiley12) and some admins decided that the category was not needed.--Smiley12 was here at 23:14, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Structure of an article

Character infobox

At the start of each character article should be the character infobox with a picture of the character, their gender, hair, age, job, relatives, episode they first appeared in, and their voice actor(s) (see right).

The Article Itself

The article should be written in Simpsons universe view, without mentioning episode names in the text. Episodes should be referenced with the <ref>[[Episode Name]]</ref> and have:

== References ==

At the bottom of the article. Episode names are only allowed in the infobox, trivia, appearances, and references. If you come across an article about a character that is not written In Simpsons Universe view, then you cn help by fixing it, or by adding {{In-universe}} to the top of the article to make

Cleanup This page needs to be put into In-Universe style.
All episode names must be made into references using <ref>[[Episode Name]]</ref> with <references/> at the bottom under a heading References. This will fit in with Project Characters.


For a very minor character, a list would be fine, for a recurring character, the following is used. A list of every Ulmann Short, Episode, Game, comic, and Movie this character appeared in. e.g.
