ArchWiki guidelines

ArchWiki suggestions

  • There should be increased spacing (approximately 1 extra line break's worth) between sections/headings to break them into better defined chunks.
  • Non-English ArchWiki pages should have their ArchWiki links be automatically "i18n"ed for the reader if an i18n version of the linked article exists. If the article doesn't exist, direct the reader to the English version of the article. For example, when [[Xorg]] is in the source of NVIDIA (Italiano), the link should automatically become [[Xorg (Italiano)|Xorg]] as long as the Xorg (Italiano) page exists.
