Need more please. Because realistically I am never going to read the MOS. I am seeing the same ones cycling already. Should be hundreds of these tips available to make, no? Lesion (talk) 14:51, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

I suppose I was a bit put off by the fact that only five people have it displayed on their page. Is it worth the effort? Tony (talk) 00:31, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Only 5? Well, I think it is a good tool to learn the MOS in tiny manageable, and more easy to remember chunks. Up to you ofc.
Just was cycling through on the template page using the purge link, and I am seeing several that don't seem to have appeared on my user page for some reason. Just chance I suppose. I will post some suggestions if you are interested, as I think of them. Lesion (talk) 01:03, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks; that would be good! It's a minor hassle to do each one properly, but at some stage I could have a binge at it to expand them. Tony (talk) 08:56, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Lesion, you can use Wikipedia:Simplified Manual of Style or Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Reading schedule.

Thanks for those links. Perhaps they would be good to be added to this template. Realistically I think newbies are highly unlikely to want to sit and read through even this simplified MOS. This template would be ideal to post on some talk pages imo. Lesion (talk) 17:58, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
  • What about the thing where you italicize terms when you are referring to them. I mean WP:MOS#Italics (Words as words section). Lesion (talk) 16:42, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
