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

These are things I am working on, though I might work a lot slower with some than others.

Adding structure to the categories

  • Separating images and file from article categories, but linking together image and article categories.
  • Diffusing screenshot categories into a structure mirroring the aircraft category structure, which in turn mirrors Wikipedia's aircraft category structure.

It would also be wonderful if new editors could somehow be educated to understand that categories are not tags. Presumably they expect images to be easier to find if they add as many categories as possible (that still seem at least remotely related).

I would consider that better file names and file descriptions (as well as some linking) probably is more efficient.

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.

As these will be used both as guidelines for users, as guidelines for users wanting help from administrators and as guidelines for administrators, there will need to be some form of consensus about them as well as a policy describing how to propose new policies, changes in existing policies and amendments to polices.
