Respect the rules , and prepare for a possible wiki migration !

Keep basic structure
- prefix article name with RPi (RPi_Name)
- add [[Category:RaspberryPi]] to each of your articles and uploads
- put this at the end of your page :
Make it safe
Make it clear to which audience the current page is aimed at , as seen here RPi Advanced Setup
Keep the beginners in mind. The news of CE marking shows that a load of boards will get into the hans of end-users . There is no way to influence this , therefore , ADAPT.
- Do not expect torough knowledge of the subject.
- Simple language
- Clear intructions
- Clean and understandable structure - much room for improvement there.
Think of others
Goes hand in hand with Tip # 3. DO NOT BREAK LINKS. See Help:Moving_a_page and Help:Deleting_a_page. When the wiki gets more and more imortant over the time , we should avoid breaking old (and older) links. If you are unsure wheter your goal cannot achieved otherwise (logical link loop) , discuss with others first.
Use the templates - this is not a recommendation !
Do not arbitarily extend and change them. They are specificially made for a better (BASIC) overview. Use Categories instead (Tip #2).
Keep it modular
If you see big lists and code listing cropping up , create a new article for them .
Please use the preview and see what monster you have created.
