PESWiki:Manual of Style

Lasted edited by Andrew Munsey, updated on June 15, 2016 at 1:12 am.

  • One error has been found on this page. Administrator will correct this soon.
  • This page has been imported from the old peswiki website. This message will be removed once updated.

A general note about naming new files. Think departments.

- If your page is a directory page, it should begin "Directory:"

- If your page is an encyclopedia entry, it should begin "PowerPedia:"

- If it has to do with news, it should begin "News:"

- If your page has to do with open sourcing, it should begin "OS:" and then be followed by an abbreviation appropriate to the unique project, eg. "OS:BMM:" Then, within that subsection, if you have a folder for replications, you could name all files there "OS:BMM:Replications/..." with "..." being the name of the particular replication.

- The only names that will take the root domain (no preface) will be the department indexes.

- Be sure to include the colon ":" after the directory name in a new page.

PESWiki Department Names

The following prefaces signify a page that has to do with the following energy-related departments:

Capitalization Convention at PESWiki

Please use initial caps for each word in page names, except on small helper words like "the", "of", "with", and "and".

For example, this page is named: "File Naming Guidelines", not "File naming guidelines".

Note that Wikipedia uses an initial-word-only capitilation convention. That is not consistent with the publishing world in general. We will go with the publishing world convention here at PESWiki.

Conventions from Wikipedia

Good recommendations from Wikipedia (which uses the same open source Mediawiki software we are using):

Naming conventions (How to title articles)

Disambiguation (How to resolve title conflicts)

How to start a page

How does one edit a page - includes all the codes for formatting as you wish.
