Writing guidelines

Generally try to conform to the way wikipedia.org writes their stuff. People are used to this format, and it seems to work well.

  • Titles should not be in all uppercase. Use the == Bla bla == and === Bla bla bla === format to make your titles bigger.
  • Dupe-check: Please read and/or search through the wiki thoroughly before you start to make edits, in order to make sure you are not duplicating something and to learn where you should link to in your edits.
  • When linking to stuff, please check that what you are linking to is spelled in the same way, instead of linking to an empty article.
  • Please try to spell as well as you can, or have someone check your changes if you're uncertain whether they make sense or not.
  • Format code using the <pre> ... </pre> tags.
  • Please use gif or png for screenshots and jpeg for images with smooth gradients.
  • Please try not to write in "I bla bla" or "We bla bla" form. Again, please conform to the way wikipedia.org is written.
  • On Talk pages please use ~~~~ at the end of your posts as a signature, and you can indent your answers by starting the line with one or several : colons.
  • Bug reports will simply be removed. This wiki is a documentation effort.
