General information on the house style. Please try and discuss any issues and get a general consensus on the discussion page, rather than just editing this page instantly.
Rough outline of the current (still evolving as with the wiki as a whole) house style:
- Page titles in "title" case, pretty much the start letter of every word in capitals, apart from things like the, of, was etc. Unless those excluded words are the first word.
- Ideally page titles in singular, with plurals used where they are the most common usage. So moving head, but shutters.
- Pages go at their "long" names (without expanding sub acronyms (so ABTT Show, MIDI Show Control)), then if and when we have to disambiguate stuff, it'll be on the acronym page. I've usually been adding redirect pages for the acronym, and categorising these so they show up on the category page in both forms.
- Grouping of similar things onto a page, with unique pages redirecting see VGA etc for examples, again categorised redirects.
- If you are feeling keen, its often worth creating unmade pages and stubifying them, as it ensures they stick to this house style and get categorised properly.
- Create redirects (uncategorised) for basic mistypes/ambiguities to aid searching, e.g. Frog2 and Frog 2
- Try and get links to go to the page with the content, rather than the redirect, and also not send users to the acronym page if a real page exists (mainly for presumed efficiency).
- Also try and not send a user to the acronym page just to find out what it means, just put it in bracket the first time in the article.
- Content only goes on the category page if it's about half a page long, any longer and it gets a dedicated page, with the relevant links in either direction.
