Below are rules on styles in Medžuviki that one must follow. The rules are subject to change via discussion on community forum.
Vlastne imena sut pisane fonetično. Ale treba jest informovati tož ob originalnom pravopise – najvyše dobro v početku statije.
There are two types of categories for pages in Medžuviki.
- Prědmety – everything that is somehow related to given topic ("prědmet")
- Indeks – pages and categories that can be considered a one of given topic ("X is Y", "X is part of Y")
This helps to bring some order in one part of a category tree so it can be used for different purposes, such as bot edits and category analysis. Index categories can include only pages and other indexes by principle "X is Y" or "X is part of Y", topic categories can include anything. Index category is linked with ordinary category via template.
Generally, articles are written in Latin alphabet, but for the convenience of primary audience it is preferred to write in Cyrillic about the subjects related to following Slavic countries and languages:
- Belarus / Belarusian language
- Bulgaria / Bulgarian language
- Macedonia / Macedonian language
- Montenegro / Montenegrin language
- Russia / Russian language
- Serbia / Serbian language
- Ukraine / Ukrainian language
This rule is subject to change if there's evidence that the Latin alphabet became more popular in one of these countries.
Below is table with comparison of both alphabets. We are using standard version of the alphabet ("Medžuslovjanski" flavour), so that approximate pronunciation can be understood by everyone, so there are quite a handful of unused letters. The intend for using it is to avoid confusion for readers coming from the different countries. You can use "MS Plus" flavour, but be aware that other editors can remove unnecessary letters using automatic tools.
If you can't write in Cyrillic for the necessary countries or languages, use extended transliterator with "Medžuslovjanski" flavour. If you can't write in Extended Latin, use input method shortcuts that are available on every page of wiki.
- Both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets are used in the country, but Cyrillic is more popular.
