Block and copy the text below. Then paste it into a theory page edit window to post a new theory. Fill in the theory title and theory description fields and add one paragraph starting with a # sign for each fact supporting (under facts_pro) or contradicting (under facts_con) the theory. Add your signature after each such paragraph and after the theory description.

When a theory is first posted, the canon_status parameter is initially set to 0. It is to be set to 1 if the theory is confirmed later by canon sources, or to -1 if the theory is disproved later by canon sources. This will mark the theory accordingly as CONFIRMED! or BUSTED!.

Do not alter the theory description of an existing theory. Only add supporting or contradicting facts or create your own new theory. Use the Theories Talk page for general discussion on a theory.

This will produce a table containing the theory:

My new theory
Described Hypothesis:
This is a full description of my theory
     Supporting Facts And Supporting Evidence:
  1. First fact supporting theory
  2. Second fact supporting theory, etc....
     Contradictory Facts and Contradictory Evidence:
  1. First fact contradicting theory, etc....



Theories may be retired if ...
1. Conversationally stated, without succinctly proposing a specific potential outcome.
2. More suited for another article/theory page... character, mystery, etc....
3. Illogically proposed, or previously disproven.
4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main article.
5. Entirely speculative (fantasy) and lacking any evidence to support the theorem.
6. Posted and left unsigned by each contributor.
