A care sheet article is an article on a specific animal or group of very similar animals. It should answer some basic questions. Don't feel like you need to know the answer to all of them to start an article. If an article doesn't exist, go ahead and create one and fill in what you know!
Care sheets should be attributed to existing categories whenever possible. New categories should only be made if several animals already in the system could be grouped into the category, and categorizing them together would add value for a person doing research on the animal. Categories should also be documented and information about the generalities that link the animals inside the category included. A common mistake beginners make is to create a bunch of categories for articles that don't exist. Remember, categories only add value when there's things to categorize into them!
Storefronts, Shops, businesses and all other commercial activity
Shop owners and breeders are welcome and encouraged to join the frugal reef community. You may create a page describing your store, contact information, what you have for sale, etc and add it to the "Shops" category. You may do business out of that page if you wish.
If you do create a page for your business you may request that your web page be marked as protected from anonymous edits, or frozen. You may link to your business website from your frugal reef page so long as your website also runs a non-hidden link to frugal reef in a conspicuous location, such as a "links" page or on your main page.
Please be a responsible member of the community and do not engage in anything underhanded. Please do not link to your store from "content" articles. You may link to your store from talk pages, so long as you do so by hand and for a reason relevant to the conversation. You may edit out anything on your store page you don't like, however, you may not delete talk articles you don't like, but are rather encouraged to respond to them. If you feel your are being the victim of abusive behavior, please contact David Hinkle.
You may not interact with frugal reef in an automated manner of any kind without first clearing it through David Hinkle, the director of frugal reef. Permission will probably be granted, so long as your request does not harm frugalreef or the frugal reef community.
Feel free to email David Hinkle with any questions.
