# Questions? ==> check out PESWiki:Where to ask a question, PESWiki:Nature's wheelwork, or ask on someone's talk page There was an error working with the wiki: Code[28]

# Write to the target audience: A related question, is who should the pages be written for? Most writers are in college or past college. However, there is evidence that most readers are high-school students, or others not too familar with a topic. (Else, why would they be looking it up in a reference article?) What is obvious or of minor relevance to a CS student or grad, may be very unclear or important to a high-school student, someone who is thinking of returning to college, or just someone looking for information (but not a learned treatise). Of course, PESWiki has yet to define its target audience very well.

|This is clearly not an exhaustive list. It is an eclectic collection intended to include the 'main' features of PESWiki, especially those not likely to reveal themselves easily to the novice. However, most of the very advanced features are not referenced here.

But, if a question or article has existed on PESWiki for long enough, you should be able to find it through a Google or Yahoo! search. (See Searching, below on this page).

(Note for Gen X, Y, Z, etc.— Think of PESWiki as a giant adventure game, where there is always something new around the corner...)

Summary:

Write first for the 'Educated Layperson' (that's hard... But I would suggest using the New Scientist as a style example).

...then try to do it better and write for the beginner (that's harder)

If an educated layperson can't figure it out by following the wikilinks, then it's too hard.

Yes, we're experts (more or less) but we're writing for a general audience. We could write a clever, concise, deep sentence to explain something...but it's useless if it isn't easy to understand.

Eschew argot, jargon, technicality and cant.
