Discussion about Talk:Inform 7 Reference Manual

It's a bit awkward to have an article page, even if it's just a WIP, in the Talk: hierarchy (or whatever MediaWiki calls it). If you don't want this page to be an official "Inform 7 Reference Manual" page because you'd like to work on it on your own, may I suggest moving the page to "User:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual", for example, then discussion, if any, can be on "User talk:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual". Thanks. -- David Welbourn 22:57, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

OK. I don't want to discourage others from editing it, so I've moved the outline to the main article page as a table of contents. I had put it here instead because I didn't think it was going to be part of the actual manual, but if we put each chapter/section on its own page, then I guess a TOC page like this will still be necessary. --Vaporware 00:01, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
If it helps any, you can see how we did Ron Newcomb's Inform 7 for Programmers pages. And, as you say, we had the table of contents on the first page, and linked to 'subpages' for the true content of the manual. We also put a navbox at the bottom of each page of the manual, which I also think tied them together well. -- David Welbourn 06:15, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
