Help make the Guide to Data Entry more user-friendly!

What is this overtext thing people are talking about?
mbmbmbmbmb
My personal guess is that more people in the world have read James Joyce's Finnegan's Wake than our Guide to Data Entry. Both are masterpieces, but RPGGeek lacks the publicity that Joyce got.

Anyway, we want to make our Guide more accessible. We've started by breaking it down into smaller chunks, copying them into separate pages. But we'd very much appreciate to get help from fresh eyes - not least those of people who have little experience with data entry - and hear your feedback. What works, what doesn't? Please don't hesitate to ask what seems like a stupid question - if you can't find an answer in the guide in short time, that's definitely worth pointing out!

Feedback and questions isn't the only way to help: You can edit the wiki pages to fix problems yourself. Don't be shy - previous versions are saved, so if you accidentally delete the entire page (or replace it with Finnegan's Wake) we can easily recover it. Just go ahead and make improvements.


If you're making a lot of changes, that's fine, too - but note that it's possible for multiple people to work on the page at the same time (it doesn't look down for others once somebody starts editing), so you could accidentally overwrite somebody else's edits if you're working on it simultaneously. Maybe keep your edits down to just a few minutes each, and save before continuing.

So, here's the link to the work in progress:
