[Still under development—please add your own suggestions! This section, and its sub-sections, should probably be changed to paragraph form and made more direct and concise.]
We need to cater for two main categories of users: those who are looking around casually and soaking up knowledge (the "browsers"), and those who are looking for specific information (the "searchers"). To accommodate "browsers", we need to write articles that are enjoyable to read from start to finish, so a sense of narrative flow and a coherent structure are essential aspects of a good article. And, to help "searchers" locate the information they're looking for, articles need to highlight key details to make them easy to find. Simply put, articles should be enjoyable to read.
- Take the reader on a "guided tour" of the subject matter.
- Make statistics, key information, and interesting details easy to find.
- It's okay to use "we", just don't use terms like "you", "I", "the reader", or "the author".
- Consider the audience—readers first, then contributors.
- Link to other articles copiously yet relevantly.
- Don't be afraid of linking to non-existent articles.
- Link only the first use of a word or phrase, unless it is particularly relevant to the point.
outall unnecessary words.
- Don't try to sound "fancy".
- Use simple language in a masterful way.
- You can use both local media and media on Wikimedia Commons.
- Pictures "prettify" articles.
- Avoid confusion by using neat diagrams.
- Use illustrations to make a good article better, not a bad article acceptable.
