First of all, like Blockchain, the wiki in its way is a revolutionary open and descentralized tool, we must remember that everyone can create and edit any pages they want. So, the following suggestions aren't stricted rules, they were made to inspire the collaborators or even provoke discussions about the different ways we could create and update the Steem.center wiki content.

We still believe that a wiki is a platform where chaos can generate some patterns and maybe order, you can consider the following sugestions as losely guidelines.[1]

To make it easier to add new pages with these format sugestions, we prepared a Template Page that you can click in edit, copy the code and paste in the new page you want create. Bellow more details from what this template informal directions suggests. If you want to try wiki editions there is also this Sandbox page to everyone play before direct edit a new or existing Steem.center page.

Title

It's very important to identify the subject of the page. We think it's better being more encyclopedic and fact oriented and less opinionated or subjective. A good starting point is picking words and definitions as is written in Steemit FAQ[2], interface, menus and Steem site and White Paper. If there are diferences between how the words are used in the steemians community we can adopt the same one that was chosen by Steem and Steemit official channels.

Article Text

Again, like the title, it's better being more encyclopedic and fact oriented, completing with dates, locations and source links. Any opinions or personal analisys could be added, preferably as quotations with source and its links. If the article answers the questions what, when and where the reader could be satisfied, but celebrate if it also aswers the questions who, why and how much.

As Steem.center wants to be the center of all Steem related things, it's important to explain the relation between the article's subject with Steem, Steemit and/or STEEM Tokens.

Article Subheads

If the suject deserves a long text, you can divide the wiki article in chapters and even in more depth separated wiki pages.

References

Links to external references automaticaly identified in the text by numbers when using a special code below.

<ref>[URL Title of the page] Written by '''Autor''' posted on name of site in Month Day, Year</ref>

And then all the identified references appear in a page place defined by the code below.

<references />

You can know more on MediaWiki Help page about Cite[3].

Links

Here you can add links direct related with the subject, like any official website, social media channels (Facebook Fanpage, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, etc). Thus links to Steemit posts and related user accounts. You can search eventual Steemit posts using Steemit search, Google search or AskSteem.

Related Articles

Links to other Steem.center wiki pages. You can find them using the wiki search, check the All Pages or browse the existing Categories. You can also suggest new wiki articles to be created in the future, just write the proposed new page title between double brackets.

External links

Links to external websites, blogs, foruns, etc. It could be interesting to add Wikipedia Articles related to the subject, video tutorials in YouTube Channels, articles in news and academic sites, etc. You can search eventual existent content using Google News Search and YouTube search, you can use Steem or Steemit keywords together with words defining the wiki page subject you're creating to check previous mentions elsewhere.

Footer

It would be kind to include this banner with links to @steemcenter and invites to new collaborators that would be rewarded with STEEM too. When copy-pasting from the Template, pay atention to the "edit" link that should be changed to the correct wiki page.

Categories

At last you can choose one or more categories that the wiki article fits better. You can check the existent Special:Categories or suggest a new one (be careful doing this, the category should gather the content, not divvy).
