Writing articles on MEpedia requires familiarizing yourself with some of the basic formatting code used by MediaWiki, the software that powers both Wikipedia and MEpedia.

A few key conventions:

  • Page titles and section headings: Always capitalise the first letter of page titles and links, subsequent words must start with a lower case letter (eg "Post-exertional malaise", "Muscle fatigability") unless they are proper names (eg "Royal Free Hospital", "Nancy Klimas", "United States") or acronyms (eg "HHV-6", "IL-7").
  • Use of plurals in titles: Normal page articles should normally use the singular while category page articles should use the plural form.
