==Formatting==
#Most articles should start with the term they are describing in '''bold'''. Which I haven't done. Oops, let's go back and sort that out (at some point) -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 19:52, 18 May 2020 (UTC)#Reflists, and referencing. I don't even think the wiki is configged to handle these yet. When the wiki is configured there will be extensions that will make this possible and easy. Main sources used will be the blog, and clinical studies. -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 21:01, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

#<s> Discord integration that logs recent changes
#* Consider changing the default skin from Vector to Timeless. It follows the trend of "responsive web design" where the same look adapts to all screen sizes, most importantly mobile phones. "Responsive web design" sites [https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/11/mobile-first-indexing.html get a higher rank on Google].
#* Alternatively, you could do what Wikipedia does, keep Vector for the desktop default and use MobileFrontend/Minerva for mobile devices. Looks a bit dated, but more people will be familiar with this setup. [[User:Heddy|Heddy]] ([[User talk:Heddy|talk]]) 02:08, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
::{{notdone}}. I think the guys we're going are more of the traditional type perhaps. I kind of see anything that isn't Vector or Monobook and my gag reflex goes off, because I'm a stubborn wiki editor. I'm really close-minded, I should work on that :P -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 18:47, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
:::Vector on a traditional desktop is certainly the best for editing. But most people are readers, not editors... and they'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. Using it creates a degree of confidence and familiarity for new readers who don't have to relearn the layout of the website. [[mw:Extension:MobileFrontend]] will be installed, negating the issues somewhat for mobile users. 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. I'd prefer to keep desktop defaulting to Vector. The Vector skin will be customised and tweaked to be more of a slice of EM, with a yellowish colour scheme instead of the default. If there are any skins you think I should add as options in preferences, please let me know! :)
::::(also really happy there's no debate about talk pages, now THERE'S a strong opinion I have xD) -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 09:44, 22 May 2020 (UTC)::::Admittedly I might have originally responded with half of my brain doing something else, so I didn't think about what you had said properly.

#[[mw:Extension:StructuredDiscussions]]. Non-essential, but good to consider. Solves the problem of people not knowing how to use talk pages (how to sign with ~, how to indent with :, etc.), by replacing talk pages with a simple comment box.

==Things we shouldn't do but I want to do==
#<s>Joke: namespace</s>
#Humour articles, like 'how much do you get paid to edit the wiki?'. We'll have a fake table with all of the rates for how much each edit costs and everything. Appropriately marked with a 'humour' notice at the top of the article that nobody can miss.
##Like just a bunch of satire articles roasting how people think this is all fake in general. This lets everyone inside the Endmyopia echo chamber giggle to themselves. -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 21:13, 18 May 2020 (UTC)#[[Pictures of Jake Steiner wearing glasses]].
