Categorization and Organization

Our articles and tutorials are not organized in any strict fashion, and you won’t be flogged for being messy sometimes. After all, we want this to be an open environment where users can help other users easily and freely! We do try to keep the wiki clean, however, and you can do your part by:

  • Placing your new articles under an appropriate section and category, or making a new category if they do not fit in anywhere else.
  • Using the following format when listing your article on the front page:
      *[[SectionName:"Your Tutorial's Name"]] by **Your Name** using **TV3D 6.5/6.3** and **Some Software** - A description of your tutorial goes here.

  • Giving your articles descriptive and concise titles that cleanly and thoroughly explain what the article/tutorial is about.
  • Formatting your articles cleanly and keeping an eye on your spelling and grammar.
  • Maintaining third person POV in the main page listings.
