Guidelines for adding new FAQ pages

The FAQ pages will become a valuable resource if properly managed and maintained. The general idea is a hierarchy of pages, starting from the general and drilling down into deeper questions on a given topic.

Considerations for authoring a new page:

  • consider what has already been written, and whether it covers the subject
  • consider carefully where the new page should go - under an existing page, or a new top-level page?
  • come up with short page titles that containing the relevant keyword(s)
  • try to make one page = one topic
  • consider what other parts of the wiki might link to your new page
  • when you are finished, perhaps make the page a favourite, and watch the page, so you can find it easily and keep it up to date

Are some pages getting too long? Splitting into sub-topics may make sense.
