Project:Manual of style
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The MediaWiki.org Manual of Style is a style manual for all MediaWiki.org content namespace (e.g. Manual:, API:, etc.) pages.
- Use "verbing a noun" format, not "verbing nouns" format, unless it's an event that necessarily or typically involves more than one of something. E.g. Manual:Moving a wiki, not Manual:Moving wikis, and Manual:Merging histories rather than Manual:Merging a history.
- Use "noun verbing" or "verb nouning" format if the focus of the page is on how to do something. E.g. Manual:Using content from Wikipedia.
- Use "noun verbation" format if the focus is on a system or feature itself and it workings, as opposed to how to use it. E.g. Manual:Revision deletion.
- If it's a list of something, then use the plural. (e.g. Manual:Configuration settings, not Manual:Configuration setting)
