Suggestion, to everyone, is to use the 'signature' on wiki discussion pages, so you can tell who's who. This is done with ~~~~, often prefixed with something like --, but that's not necessary. Because this is really hard to figure out who's who right now. Best not to use these on normal edits, but on talk pages it's nice. Also, on the edit links, it's a bad idea to remove them from almost any normal pages, but removing them from the main page is more a matter of taste, since it'll generally only be edited by people who know what they're doing (indeed, most wikis protect the main page from editing by anyone but admins). --Chaos 08:52, 28 March 2006 (CST)

Hi folks. Is there an agreed-upon style guide for this wiki? If not, I presume the Wikipedia Manual of Style should be a sufficient guide? Keloff 16:45, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

We do not enforce any style guide on articles. Generally standard English rules are used regarding sentences and structure. For look and feel the rule is to find something similar if you can and then use it as a template for your own article. There are many international users at MobileRead and styles vary based on their familiarity with English. Obvious errors are corrected but changing things just for style purposes is not a good use of time unless there is confusion as to meaning. Spelling is generally American English as indicated by the built in spelling checker. Is there any specific area you are concerned about?

One thing that is important not to change is headings unless you chase down all usage to ensure that nothing links there. Don't break links. They are fundamental to this wiki. Provide links whenever possible.--DaleDe 16:59, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

[edit] topic link suggestion

The hardware review should be added on the main page instead of being buried in the FAQ section
