Original Research Edit
This wiki can be used to document original research (OR), but only in the cases where the documentation of such research would not infringe on copyright and referencing a link to an outside source is not possible.
There is only one type of OR that this wiki may contain, projects. Projects contain original material about a process or procedure which is novel and can be referenced from related articles.
All other OR must be referenced outside from within the wiki. Peer-reviewed and reputable sources will always be preferred. Sources with known or demonstratable bias and the claims referenced must be removed from any article.
Article Naming Edit
When creating an article it is absolutely essential that it is added under the correct Category.
Articles about physical items Edit
When you are writing an article about an item such as a scooter, kart, engine or any part, the article should be created in the default. Simply enough, this means that the article should be named simply with no prefix.
If possible, it is essential that the manufacturer's name is included in the title. For example, the 2x scooter from Evo Powerboards should be named [[Evo 2x]]. This helps to disambiguate items from each other and make items easier to locate when sorted alphabetically.
Adding an Item Edit
Items depend on categorization to be sorted correctly in the menu system. Each subsection of the menu has its own category.
- Vehicle Type
- Scooters = [[Category:scooter]]
- Karts = [[Category:kart]]
- Gas = "[[Category:gas-powered]]"
- Electric = [[Category:electric-powered]]
- Human-Powered Scooters = [[Category:human-powered]]
- Engines = [[Category:engine]]
- Exhaust = [[Category:exhaust]]
- Carburetion = [[Category:carburetion]]
- Head Kits = [[Category:head-kit]]
- Controlls = [[Category:control]]
A category can be added to an article by appending [[Category:category-name]] to the end of the article.
Articles about how to do something Edit
If your article is a guide to preforming some action such as "A guide to Carburetor Tuning" or "A guide to Assembling the Evo two speed transmission", you will need to need to add the article to the "Guide" category . This can most simply be done by inserting "[[Category:Guide]]" at the end of your article.
When deciding on a name for your guide, ensure that it can be read as "A guide to guide-name".
Articles about a manufacturer Edit
If your article is about a high-level concept, person, company or retailer like Goped, Evo Powerboards or Tanaka, you'll need to assign it to the "Manufacturer" category. This can most simply be done by inserting "[[Category:Manufacturer]]" at the end of your article.
Articles about a technology, manufacturer or idea Edit
If your article is about a high-level concept, person, company or retailer like 2-stroke engine, EPA regulations, centrifugal clutch or Neo Scooters, you'll need to assign it to the "Article" category. This can most simply be done by inserting "[[Category:Article]]" at the end of your article.
Project articles Edit
If you are documenting a project like Scooter Libby, you'll need to assign it to the "Project" category. This can most simply be done by inserting "[[Category:project]]" at the end of the article.
Feel free to be creative with your title, but keep it clean and short.
Advertising for any retailer will not be tolerated. With that in mind, a reference can be made to retailers if they are the only seller of the subject of an article. Manufacturers can always be referenced. Prices must always remain estimates.
This is a wiki, so the content is owned by everyone. No one owns an article, so there is no reason to sign a name on one. Talk page comments should be signed whenever possible.
