VEX Forum Wiki Rules and Style Guidelines
As was already said in the introduction, the purpose of this topic is not to duplicate vast amounts of knowledge already available on the Vex Forum and external sites, but to make it easy to find that information.
We welcome and value all contributions and currently any forum users with TL1 trust level could edit Wiki posts.
However, to maintain high quality of the Wiki, everybody has to adhere to the Wiki Guidelines, that are detailed below.
Please, DO NOT CREATE NEW POSTS in this topic, unless you have a prior approval from the Wiki maintainers team (TBD).
Current open discussion about this wiki could be found in this thread: VEX Forum Wiki
This Style and contribution Guidelines are work in progress and we are going to define and put them here in the near future…
In general, the preference is to stay brief and, whenever possible, use a link to an existing topic, instead of copying its content into the Wiki.
We could start by listing things “we wish we knew at the beginning” and then sort them into beginner / intermediate / advanced categories.
Beginner category is something that needs to be communicated right away.
Intermediate is something that could wait until later in the season or second season.
And advanced is something (like odometry/tracking) that would be great to get to, but is not required by most of the teams.
If we use pyramid diagram, then we could start from the top with the most basic and most important knowledge, then expand it into intermediate level, with more information that relies on more prior experience, and so forth …
