These are useful instructions, thanks. I just have one point of contention: Should the reference paragraph you mention under "CREATING WIKI PAGES FROM FORUM POSTS:" for an article based on the forum always be at the beginning? I understand that it can provide context to the information, but I feel it might be better suited as a paragraph or section nearer the bottom (grouped with the reference links or otherwise). Especially since some pages will likely end up being an amalgamation of forum references, book references, external site references, new material etc. A reader may become lost or bored when trying to find information on a topic and all they see is the meta-information at the beginning. This is just my opinion though. --[[User:Michael Saganski|Michael Saganski]] 11:13, 2 June 2011 (CDT)

Fine at top or bottom.  I just thought it would be good to reference contributors in some way and provide a context.  --[[User:Ted Vollers|Ted Vollers]] 11:18, 2 June 2011 (CDT)

These are useful instructions, thanks. I just have one point of contention: Should the reference paragraph you mention under "CREATING WIKI PAGES FROM FORUM POSTS:" for an article based on the forum always be at the beginning? I understand that it can provide context to the information, but I feel it might be better suited as a paragraph or section nearer the bottom (grouped with the reference links or otherwise). Especially since some pages will likely end up being an amalgamation of forum references, book references, external site references, new material etc. A reader may become lost or bored when trying to find information on a topic and all they see is the meta-information at the beginning.
