- This page is considered an official policy on Anne of Green Gables Wiki. It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow. Except for minor edits, please make use of the forum to propose changes to this policy.
The title for this page is rule of inclusion, not rules, because there really is only one rule. No article should be about a subject more than one degree of separation from Anne of Green Gables.
Confused? Don't be. It's really simple. See, the topics on this wiki are either about the Anne of Green Gables series or an adaptation, or about something related to or deriving from the books or adaptations. For the sake of this explanation, let's call everything that is the series or an adaptation a Level 1 topic, while everything directly related is a Level 2 topic.
Here are some examples of Level 1 and Level 2 topics. Please note that these lists are not comprehensive.
Level 1 topics:
- Anne of Green Gables (book)
- Anne of Green Gables (1919) (film)
- Road to Avonlea (TV series)
- Chronicles of Avonlea (short story collection)
- "Sara's Way" (short story)
- "Out of the Ashes" (episode)
Level 2 topics:
- Rachel Lynde (character)
- Rebecca Dew (character from the books)
- Emmeline Harris (character from a film)
- Felicity King (character from TV series)
- Hearts of the World (film mentioned in Rilla of Ingleside)
- World War I (topic from book)
- Wedding of Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe (event)
- Green Gables (location)
- Ingleside (location from books)
- Megan Follows (actress from films)
- Kim Braden (actress from TV series)
- Kevin Sullivan (film and TV series director/producer)
- Nippon Animation (animation studio that produced TV series)
- "The Piper" (poem from book)
- Walter Blythe's last letter to Rilla Blythe (letter from book)
Following this scheme, this means that there are also Level 3 topics. We don't include these on the wiki, but here are some examples for reference. Level 3 items are only items that have no direct link to Anne of Green Gables.
Level 3 topics:
- D. W. Griffith (director of Hearts of the World)
- Reign (a TV series Megan Follows stars in)
- Kindred Spirit (a biography of LMM)
