Modification to proposal style to allow better use of whatis template

Jump to: navigation, search


The proposals are created using an inputbox that fills the new page with the content at Help:Guideline proposal. So, when someone suggests a new guideline, the inserted content explains that a rationale should be included first thing in the discussion section. Does that fulfill your concern on it?

Discussion is accessible from the central style guide within two clicks of a mouse. In the guide is the same navigation template found in the workgroup charter, the proposal pages, and the talk pages.

Jesse, Thanks for explaining this a bit more. The help page is very clear and concise. Now I see why you posted a rationale as the first point under discussion. Just want to say (again) that I like the rationales.

I don't really have a concern, just thinking that new members looking to use the finalized style guide could well benefit from reading a guideline's rationale (as I have) and they may not know to go looking for them. I'd vote for keeping them on the guideline page in the final document (if there was a way to do so without cluttering things up). Just a thought.

I don't see why there shouldn't be a rationale on the final guide, but you're right that it may bog things down. We shall just have to experiment with it when the time comes to determine how the guide will be formatted.
