You can format your text by using wiki markup. This consists of normal characters like asterisks, apostrophes or equal signs which have a special function in the wiki, sometimes depending on their position.

Section Headings

Try to avoid special characters in headings, such as an ampersand (&), a plus sign (+), curly braces ({}), or square braces ([]). In place of the ampersand, use the word "and" unless the ampersand is part of a formal name.

Always keep headings short and simple. Headings are guidelines to your page's structure and should inform the reader rather than confuse. To keep it short, avoid unnecessary words or redundancy in headings, i.e. avoid a, an, and the, pronouns, repeating the article title, and so on. Also, try to avoid giving identical titles to different sections.

Article Management Templates

These are small templates that allow you to easily add special tags or information to an article. They should be added to the top of the page they are needed on - these templates are used to bring the article to the attention either the Wiki Masters (to delete, move, or perform some other administrative power) or to regular users to add more information (Stubs/ImageStubs).
