This page lays out some of the rough style and layout guidelines we use on this Wiki. The purpose of these isn't to force everyone to look the same, it's to make the information organized and easier for people to discover, so feel free to object to any you feel don't achieve that goal.

Saved Posts

Saved posts should be on their own page, which should be just the text of the saved post followed by [[Category:Saved Posts]], and possibly other categories which apply. Saved posts should be named something like "SGE Protocol Saved Post". For pages in which you would like to include a saved post along with other text, put the saved post on its own page and use {{:Topic Saved Post}} to include it in the main article. See the SGE Protocol article for an example.
