Expert manual

This help page is about creating a new milonga article with the milonga form.

This page in a nutshell:
  1. Start on the milonga form page Form:Milonga.
  2. Create the venue, if needed, with the Form:Venue.

General guidelines

General form guidelines:
  1. To fill out forms, you need to be registered and logged in.
  2. First check in the list of all entries (on the according category page), if the desired article has already been created, maybe under a different page name. In case of doubt, go ahead and create it anyway. (Double is better than none!)
  3. Usually, the form only fills structured information that will show in a table and/or an infobox. There is usually a free text area that can be filled with further, non pre-structured information.
  4. In free text, stick to a clear, factual, neutral, non-personal and descriptive writing style. Refer to the Style guide for more information.
