{{gif fixer|[[File:Adorable_cute_kitten_tapping_on_Macbook.gif|350px]]|right}}This is a temporary and highly attention attracting sidebar topic, intended list for people to 'the ''write down the must have essentials ' of the wiki that we need before it's released to complete''', before we go ahead and let more of the general public see the wiki. These articles don't have to be flawless, just helpful enough.
Wiki will be prominent on the front of the website, maybe a mass email sent out, pinned in the FB group, maybe youtube video promoting it, '''who knows'''. How can the Wiki be expected to be promoted if it has '''no content'''? xP We're crowdsourcing what we believe to be the essential articles and things that should be completed to an acceptable standard before going ahead and promoting the wiki down below. '''Please contribute to the ToDo list'''. Follow the syntax that already exists down below to add to the ToDo list, and be sure to sign off on your contributions with <nowiki>~~~~</nowiki>. This will leave your '''wiki username signature''', so people know who put what task where. If something isn't crucial to get to an acceptable standard before publishing the wiki, don't put it on the list. The list is just for the most important things to get right :){{awesome}}<!-- ==Content==
Here's a list of pages that need development:
<categorytree mode="pages" hideroot="on">Pages that need development</categorytree>
These are basically all of the main articles on the front page. Gotta get these bad boys shipshape.
Please write other articles that are felt necessary. Tag these articles with <nowiki></nowiki> for now.
==Remember these==
# [[Special:LonelyPages]] ideally would be empty.
# [[Special:WantedPages]] should be minimized. This page will naturally grow as we add content, and is ripe grounds for contributors to pick something that needs researching or cross-linking.
#We need LOADS of redirects. Redirects redirect one term (e.g. 'Bates method') to another ('Bates '''M'''ethod'). To make a redirect, type <code>#REDIRECT <nowiki>[[ArticleName]]</nowiki></code> as the ENTIRE article, or use the 'create redirect' tool (last in the tools section in the left panel, at time of writing).
#*I think it's probably better to add a new redirect link for a term, rather than use the <nowiki>[[wikiword|description]]</nowiki> syntax to have ''description'' link to ''wikiword'' on the fly. That way, if a page for ''description'' does get created later, we don't have to go back to find places where that same phrase was sent to a different page (which would be confusing). Though it wouldn't matter for the case above where they differ only in case. [[User:Divenal|Divenal]] ([[User talk:Divenal|talk]]) 09:24, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

But most people are readers, not editors... and they are describing 're usually on a mobile device. Vector is quite unappealing on mobile devices. Always needing to zoom in and out to read text and tap links. I'd guess that seeing a desktop-only website is more likely to cause people to gag than seeing Vector on desktop and Minerva on mobile (Wikipedia's setup). Regardless of what the default is, users can always select Vector at [[Special:Preferences]] or with "Desktop view" at the bottom of the page.:::I ask that you cast aside your own feelings in order to accommodate the majority of potential readers, making vision improvement information as accessible as possible. [[User:Heddy|Heddy]] ([[User talk:Heddy|talk]]) 02:39, 22 May 2020 (UTC)::::I think Vector is a familiar Wiki layout to most people who read Wikipedia.

I'm open to different skins and extensions for mobile users, definitely, will look into what can be done for mobile. Mobile optimisation is super important for SEO from what I can tell.
