Changing to FAQ

The donations link in the main menu was going to waste in my opinion. It would be better served being rolled into a general FAQ page which will answer many different types of questions. Feel free to insert questions you think would be very general about UOGuide. If you are not a Sysop, then you can propose questions/answers here on the talk page. - JC the Builder 17:12, 31 January 2008 (PST)

Suggested new FAQ: For contributing, how should pages look on this website? (e.g. conflict of styles between uostuff & uoguide content)

- Timi

I kinda get the impression there is no standard. :)

Usually I just check pages of a similar subject before creating a new one. Sometimes I can spot a pattern (which I follow), sometimes I can't (so I take a stab at setting one).

It's usually a good idea to search for terms related to your new subject as well, just in case a page covering it already exists (but under an unexpected name).

Also check the "what links here" link when creating a new page to see if any pages link there. If only one page links to a topic, you might consider wiping the link or pointing it at another page instead.

Incedently, you can "sign" comments by sticking in four tildes (~~~~). The wiki auto-replaces them with your username/date/etc.

Also kinda worth pointing out is the UOStuff category, where you can find pages that need to be better "integrated" into UOGuide.

I made the Category:UOStuff page during the transition.

In terms of standards: You can pretty much just follow Bomb Bloke's suggestions. Every once in a while I will sweep through and standardize an entire subsection (or create the entire subsection myself), so things will eventually get fixed up. And even if they don't, a wiki that isn't continually in flux and constantly being changed is a failure of a wiki. --Cogniac 20:14, 29 July 2008 (PDT)
