Organizing Year Zero

Due to the massive nature of the World of Year Zero, organization of information is paramount to gaining a complete understanding of what is known up to date. As such, I am putting togeather this guide to organize all Year Zero content on the website, including a hierarchy of the main research pages and standards for various types of recurring details in Year Zero (such as websites). In this manner all sites will be consistant in their style, easily accessable, and there will be no redundant pages.


General Standards

Splitting Articles As a rule of thumb, when a subsection of any site gains more than 4-5 of it's own subsections it should be split into it's own article and replaced on it's parent page with a short description and a link.

Major Subtopic Subsections For large subsections that become articles, if they have SPECIFIC major subsections numbering less than 4-5 you may include a description and link to the article of each. (ie Year Zero Individuals is a good example with few major people and a large ammount of minor people, the major ones can be listed on the Reserarch Page until they are too numerous).

Year Zero Name Any major top-end page name (ie Research, Story, People, etc) should be distinguised from the rest of the Wiki content by adding "Year Zero" to the name.

Information Ordering Any subject in which the information is not proven to be dependant on numerology or chronology should use alphabetical order.

Year Zero Research This will be trhe consolidated center of all information regarding Year Zero. The very top of the hierarchy.

Comments: Remember that too many subpages would be exactly the opposite of what we have now - too little info on each page. If you're careful about that, this will turn out great! --Tonyconverse! 22:55, 16 April 2007 (PDT)

Thats why I made the point that if a subpage gets too big it's turned into it's own article. and simply referenced by it's parent. The Research page will probally be the only one with alot of subpages because it's the top of the hierarchy and has all the sections that cannot be consolidated into another parent section. I'm moving pages and information around as I work on this as well to conform with the new standards. Hopfully people will follow the pattern. :D BurnHavoc 23:03, 16 April 2007 (PDT)
