Conservapedia:Editing article and talk pages
The Conservapedia Manual of Style contains standardized information regarding how to edit pages on Conservapedia. This helps keep a consistent tone in most articles.
Creation of a new article
At Conservapedia it is easy to create a new article as can be seen by our resource: How to create a new article.
When you create a new article, please do one or both of the following so people can find your article:
- Link your article from one or more other articles as appropriate.
- Put one or more Category tags at the bottom of your article, preferably for a category that already exists.
- The style "July 4, 1776" is preferred.
- If the day of the week is involved, e.g., "Sunday, December 7, 1941", the comma after the day of the week is optional ("Sunday December 7, 1941" is allowed).
- US Military style is tolerated in context: "4 July 1776".
- If it is necessary for clarity to show the era of the year, Always use BC and AD (as opposed to BCE and CE). See Anno Domini for a full discussion.
Use correct spelling as often as possible. Some browsers can be equipped with a in-browser spell checker. If you have one of the following browsers, please download the spell checker at the link provided:
- Internet Explorer - download at iespell
- Opera - download at GNU Aspell
- Mozilla Firefox - download at Spellbound or update to the latest version of Firefox, which has a built-in spelling checker.
- American English spellings are preferred but Commonwealth spellings, for de novo or otherwise well-maintained articles are welcome, and edit wars over the subject are seriously discouraged. The context of the article should help resolve edit wars; an article about Britain would use Commonwealth spelling, while an article about the United States would use American English.
