Site sustainability tips[edit | edit source]

  • Actively avoid complexity and strive towards simplicity
    • Use meta-templates to reduce templates
    • Avoid nested templates in content pages
    • Ideally, template parameters should be simple key-value pairs: all markup and complexities should go within the template itself
    • Keep a close correlation between template parameters and semantic properties, for example derivative-of and Property:Derivative of
    • Avoid custom namespaces (given the extremely diverse nature of pages in the main namespace of Appropedia, there should be no need for custom namespaces)
    • Merge related pages to have fewer, better ones
  • Prefer well-supported extensions, especially Wikimedia-supported ones
  • Keep MediaWiki updated and never modify the source code
  • Convention over configuration and sensible defaults on templates
  • Use modern web standards and structured data for rich results
