# Writing Guide

## How to Write Posts

Not following these rules will result in your post not being posted!!!

### Essentials:

• Learn basic Markdown formatting.
• Markdown is a lightweight and easily readable format for websites.
• Guide to formatting in Markdown
• If you are writing up mathematics pages, format math stuff using MathJax (Guide)

### Formatting Rules:

• Title should be structured as: Subject - Topic - Year Level (optional)
• For example: SOR1 - Core Ethical Teachings of Judaism - Year 11
• If you are a writer for the site, you will be provided with a writer ID. In the header of each post, add the line discussionId: writer_id-post_number
• For example: W1234-P10 where W1234 is the writer ID and P10 is the 10th post by that writer.
• Anonymous posts should use writer ID WA1 with no post number. A post number will be assigned randomly after moderation. Identified writers will only be moderated for the first post, and randomly after that.
• Post Contents:
• DO NOT REPEAT THE TOPIC!!!
• Syllabus points and learning intentions should be placed at the end of the post (Optional but recommended)
• For example, on this page, How to write posts is h2 (##). Formatting Rules is h3 (###). More #’s means another sub-topic.
• Break down the information into dot points (i.e. lines should start with a dash - or an asterisk *).
