The Manual of Style (often abbreviated MoS or MOS) is a style guide for all Sarkarverse articles. It helps editors write articles with consistent, clear, and precise language, layout, and formatting. The goal is to make Sarkarverse easier and more intuitive to use. Consistency in language, style, and formatting promotes clarity and cohesion. Writing should be clear and concise. Plain English works best; avoid ambiguity, jargon, idioms and vague or unnecessarily complex wording.

Similarity to the Wikipedia Manual of Style

Shortcut:

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the Sarkarverse Manual of Style is identical to the Wikipedia Manual of Style.

Special characters

Shortcut:

In general, avoid the use of special characters (especially characters that are not commonly found on an English keyboard). If there is no loss of clarity (in the English context), Samskrta (Sanskrit) diacritical marks (ucis and nicis) may be omitted. So, for example, under most circumstances, it is acceptable and even preferable to write Samskrta rather than Saḿskrta.

Never include special characters in article titles. Article titles with special characters may be difficult for readers to find with the Sarkarverse search engine, commonly employed for both navigation and search purposes. In addition to facilitating ease of use on Sarkarverse, this policy also tends to enhance consistency of spelling (with all of the benefits that this entails).

Over-linking

Shortcut:

Generally a term should be linked once or twice (or maximum thrice if the article is very long). No term should be linked more than thrice in an article, regardless of the article's size or the term's importance.

Wikipedia-linking

Shortcut:

In Sarkarverse we sometimes link words to articles on Wikipedia. Such links should only be to articles that are very significant in the current context. In general, do not link common words like English, United States, Life, Car, and so on.
