General article guidelines

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)

Menu referencing

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)


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.
