Important: Wiki policy related to Conservapedia's Manual of Style

The Conservapedia Style Guide has a policy (If it does not have this policy, I will create it after I do this edit) of one link to a particular article at Conservapedia within a given article.

For example, a gun related article can only have one link to Conservapedia's gun control article.

Why is this policy important?

Failure to follow this policy creates difficult to read link rich articles which are unappealing to the eye. And once your article is unappealing to the eye, people will quickly click off it. So a link rich article is self-defeating in terms of getting people to dig more deeply into a subject at a wiki. Furthermore, it will cause people to leave the website sooner rather than later.

In addition, most people judge a book by its cover. An unappealing looking article is assumed to be an inferior article by most people.

I removed about a dozen duplicate internal links from this article: Ammunition control. It looks better now, but it still needs much improvement as far as being too link rich. Please remove the duplicate links. For example, each state mentioned in the article (New York, California, etc.), should only have one link to its respective article at this wiki.

The policy I am referring to is located at Internal link policy. Please take the time to read Conservapedia's Manual of Style.
I hope this message to you is helpful. I would hate for you to lose the opportunity of gaining a loyal audience due to something that is easily avoidable.
Please go through your key articles (your most important articles) and remove the link richness. You can remove the link richness in the other articles as you continue to edit them. Conservative 02:21, 14 February 2015 (EST)

Layout of articles

The Manual of style has a section on the layout of pages; in sequence, the final sections should be references, see also, and then external links. Just a heads up, considering your recent articles do not follow this progression. DanielJackson 23:22, 14 February 2015 (EST)

Thank you for the headups, however, what you state is not correct necessarily. There are reasons for putting the "References" or "Notes" section last. If you do not, then sometimes, when you need to put a footnote on a "See Also" or on an "External Links" (as I sometime do), you will get an error message.
For the best guidance on a well-written article that follows the Conservapedia format and has a high visibility, please see one of our most popular articles atheism. TheAmericanRedoubt 23:35, 14 February 2015 (EST)
Problem solved. I appended the manual of style. Conservative 01:06, 15 February 2015 (EST)
Makes sense. Good explanation: Conservapedia:Editing_article_and_talk_pages#Layout. Thank you for the clarification. TheAmericanRedoubt 01:29, 15 February 2015 (EST)

Up-dating articles

I assume that you are following American news. So, when you add your "see also" sections to articles like Oregon or Arizona, could you check whether the articles are up-to-date? Thanks. --AugustO 03:00, 20 February 2015 (EST)

Will do -- when I can or when I know about it. TheAmericanRedoubt 03:13, 20 February 2015 (EST)
