This is the Manual of Style. It holds all of the editing information necessary to create a proper article.
Part 1: The basic articleEdit
The introduction to an article should summarize the entire page (for visitors who want to skimp along). The title of the page should be bolded.
The introduction should be longer for larger pages, such as a paragraph or two, and smaller for smaller pages, maybe a sentence or two.
The body of the page should be divided into sections, using the equal signs. There are multiple levels of sections.
- =Foo= (largest)
- =====Foo===== (smallest)
The body should go into great detail of the subject, from its history to its functions and properties. The body should cover all bases of the subject. For example, an article about a city would cover its history, demographics, climate, geography, architecture, education, transportation, culture, and economy. So there should be different sections for each subject.
If your article is related to something else, then you link to those articles in the See Also section. The see also section is for all links directly related to the article, such as a link to the country a city is in.
No references are needed on this wiki.
To redirect one page to another, so people won't end up writing a page that already exists, put
on the page and the page's full name in the brackets. When you save the page, you should see an arrow pointing to the link to the correct page. Click on the link, and you should see (redirected from <pagename>) at the top of the page.
When there are two articles with the same name, create a disambiguation page to link to two or more pages.
