- Plain English. Sometimes terminology is necessary but complex jargon is a barrier to understanding and prevents the dissemination of knowledge. Keep it simple.
- Evidence. Valid conclusions need a solid foundation of evidence. Reference cited articles / studies as much as possible and give any personal experiences sufficient context so others can weigh your testimony.
- Balance. There are always two or more sides to every story and this should be reflected in the acuwiki. Be aware of your biases and wear your equitability with pride.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Every page should have a table of contents. The titles within the table of contents can be created within the HTML tab of the article editor and use this markup:
<h4><a href=”#XYZ”>TITLE IN CAPITALS HERE</a></h4>
In this example, XYZ is the code that refers to a paragraph title in the article. It is important that the # precedes the code and that the code itself contains only alphanumeric characters; no symbols or spaces. Once this is done, the paragraph titles themselves within the article should be written like this in the HTML tab of the editor:
<h4 id=”XYZ”>TITLE IN CAPITALS HERE</h4>
Footnotes should accompany every referenced item of information. They are created using
1 tags and number themselves automatically.
