Style guide for editing/creating articles within DCCWiki.

General

This is the general style guide for editing articles within the DCCWiki. Please help to keep this up to date.

DC vs analog

Please use "analog" rather than "DC" when talking about the "old style" control system. There are several good reasons to do this:

  • It's less confusing when reading or speaking.
  • There's less chance of a typo - either dropping or adding one letter results in a valid term, but invalid information.
  • It reads better - "She sells DCC and DC by the seashore"? All that hissing... ;)
