I don't know if "Etiquette" is the proper title for this page. Thoughts? MrHen 20:50, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Please start pages already with at least proper stubs, so that the intent is clear and there is some value and quality in the page as it is. It's very important not to allow bit rot in. For now, there are pages FAQ and Less Wrong, which are more about the blog than the wiki, as possible places to start or interlink. --Vladimir Nesov 21:54, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
I couldn't find a template for Stubs. What are you talking about? MrHen 22:22, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm talking about even a half-written page being presentable, stub template is only an icing. I added info about page status templates including stub at Help:Style Guide#Formatting (although this one you should've been able to find in the code of the many stub pages on the wiki). --Vladimir Nesov 22:57, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay. So... how should I do that for this page? Instead of guessing incorrectly again I'm just going to start asking. I do not know of a high-level post talking about what high-level post etiquette at LessWrong is. I certainly have no authority to write the first notes on the subject. I'll add what I can.

You could write up a complete (without "dangling ends"), if short and simple, position statement on what you've observed the post etiquette to be/what it should be. I've updated Help:Etiquette to include a note about bit rot. The reason to be more concerned about it here is that the number of contributions is low, and so bad-quality bits left and forgotten by users over time threaten to overwhelm the wiki if allowed. --Vladimir Nesov 23:57, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
