General article guidelines[edit]

Didn't know where to place suggestions or open a discussion on article guidelines etc. so I'm hijacking this one as it is related. Maybe defining some additional guidelines wouldn't be all that bad? Mroth 09:57, 27 January 2011 (CET)

I think this is the right place. At least it is from now on ;-) --Michael 14:44, 27 January 2011 (CET)

Menu referencing[edit]

I've come across three different ways of referencing steps in (GUI) menus. They are:

- » with / without surrounding code tags 
- - +1 --Michael 14:42, 27 January 2011 (CET)
- → Configuration#Database_Directory with surrounding text in italic tags
- / GUI Views

It would be, imo, better to be more consistent about this. Or at least change the GUI Views ones to one of the others (whichever is prefered). Mroth 09:57, 27 January 2011 (CET)

Good hint; I prefer version 3 (using the arrow → with italic text), and have changed the quoted text snippets. --CG


Do we like pictures? E.g. I would have added some GUI-dialog screenshots to show options etc. referenced in the text but didn't because:

- may be a pain to update all such pictures when new features/options are added ...
- ... unless added version info in the caption limits the "scope"
- didn't want to bloat the clean look of the articles ..

What are your thoughts on that? Mroth 09:57, 27 January 2011 (CET)

Imho we could use more pictures, but there is a serious lack of meaningful illustrations.

Yes, would like to have more pictures, if they can be cutely integrated. I've just revised the GUI Views page to make it a little bit nicer. ---CG
