Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

== Help namespace = Aircraft development articles ===* {{pending}} I stumbled upon a stub named [[Creating an aircraft]] not too far ago, which I quickly expanded, just to find out that there already was a [[Howto:Make an aircraft]]. My article is now moved to [[User:Johan G/HelpHowto:Tutorial|HelpCreate an aircraft]] pending to merging that with [[Howto:TutorialMake an aircraft]] Rewrite of Help, which I have multiple issues with:Tutorial (currently a redirect) to be * Large parts are about what improving an existing aircraft. This should be split off to a wiki is separate article.* Large parts are written like as if the authors was not aware of the more specific articles existing that covers a most of the subjects mentioned. I feel that the article should only go into the very basics and what provide pointer for the rest. There is much enough ambiguity on this wiki as is aboutI strongly believe the article structure of the wiki should have very little overlapping except what is needed for context, in essence DRY ({{wikipedia|Don't Repeat Yourself}}) * {{progressbar|0}} Merging [[User:Johan G/Howto:Create an aircraft]] with [[Howto:Make an aircraft]].* {{progressbar|10}} Splitting up parts of [[Howto:Make an aircraft]] to [[User:Johan G/Howto:Improve an aircraft|Howto:Improve an aircraft]]

=== Categorization of uncategorized pages ===
When used well, categories will make it easier to find related articles laterally in the category hierarchy, as well as find more general articles upwards.

=== Style guides ===
They will probably in time, and with edits by many other authors, be useful to editors seeing {{tl|cleanup}} on one of "their" pages. They will need to be scrutinized by other as well.
 
* {{progressbar|20}} [[User:Johan G/Help:Style guide|FlightGear wiki:Style guide]]. Early beginnings of an introductory style guide. Will probably in time, and with edits by many other authors, be useful to editors seeing {{tl|cleanup}} on one of "their" pages. Need to be scrutinized by other as well.
 
=== Policies ===
There is unfortunately a growing need for policies. Like with categories I strongly believe that they should form a tree, with a general unspecific, ''very'' concise and more or less universally agreed on policy at the root.
