Work In Progress about help/contribute stuff Contents 1 Current situation 2 Proposed re-organisation 3 Potential outline for the 3 pages 3.1 Help:Contents page 3.1.1 Quick-Start Contributing 3.1.2 Who can contribute? 220.127.116.11 Get a new account 3.1.3 What content belongs to KDE Userbase 18.104.22.168 Where to put new articles 22.214.171.124 The procedure 3.1.4 Editing workflow 126.96.36.199 Start editing 188.8.131.52 Type your changes 184.108.40.206 Summarize your changes 220.127.116.11 Preview before saving 18.104.22.168 Saving 22.214.171.124 Tracking further modifications of the page 126.96.36.199.1 Watching a page 188.8.131.52 Tips for translators 3.2 UserBase page 3.2.1 What is UserBase 3.2.2 Ready to contribute 3.3 UserBase/Guidelines page Current situation I can see so far 3 pages concerning it: Help:Contents which talks about What is Userbase, some guidelines, and some guide to contribute. Quick_Start which talks about What is Userbase UserBase/Guidelines which is actually more a "Code of conduct": license problem, be nice with other, mixed with some advices to contribute Proposed re-organisation Rename link to Help:Contents as "Contribute" in the side-bar, and focus on this page on the step-by-step contribute starting guide. Clean Quick_Start so that it talks only about what is Userbase, and link it through a "What is Userbase" or "Help" link in the sidebar. Clean the Guidelines so that it talks about the code of conduct, move everything related to contribute howto on the Contribute (Help:Contents) page. Potential outline for the 3 pages Help:Contents page Quick-Start Contributing --> just a renaming of the 'How to contribute' current section Who can contribute? "everyone can, and actually you don't even need an account, but it's better because ... and ... and you can be awarded in the top contributors ;p" Get a new account howto What content belongs to KDE Userbase Where to put new articles The procedure same content + the review and policy conventions sections appended. Editing workflow Start editing Type your changes Summarize your changes Preview before saving Saving Tracking further modifications of the page Watching a page Tips for translators -copy the original version to your target language version -edit inlines or in an outside editor and copy back -watch the original page for further modifications, so that you can sync your translation if necessary Use the History page of the original version to compare versions - you can quickly see where the changes are UserBase page What is UserBase This section looks perfect to me already Ready to contribute I would shorten it and redirect to the "Contribute" (formerly Help:Contents) page.
