Wiki Manual of Style (Style Guide)

Postby kentsmith9 » Sun Feb 16, 2014 7:24 am

If you are considering making changes in the Wiki, please note that we follow the Manual of Style used in Wikipedia.

In some cases there may be deviations required due to differences in the Waze version of software verses Wikipedia.

Some of the current Wiki pages do not yet fully comply with the Manual of Style typically due to:
  • Lack of knowledge of the agreed recommendation
  • Some pages were created before this agreement was made
  • Errors not realized by the editor making them

Note that the above reasons are not justifications for why other pages should be created or updated incorrectly.

This follow on post will be periodically updated to identify important style guidelines that may improve the readability and consistency of the Waze Wiki, and deviations to the Wikipedia guidelines necessary to be more compatible with the Waze Wiki and the structure we have selected.

General editing and page formatting help can also be found on this help page that is currently undergoing development itself.
