CV-Resume: manual of style

When so many people can edit the same content, it is necessary to establish a few, basic, rules so that Cv-Resume can be a useful, consistent and objective guide instead of a mess of data provided in thousands of different ways.

Keep in mind that everything you edit or add will be moderated by a CV-Resume trusted moderator. So if your contribution won't follow one of the rules below the chances that your content will be deleted or strongly edited are really high.


Neutral point of view

Please, avoid first-person in the article you are writing. Cv-Resume wants to be an objective guide, not a collection of personal diaries! So please, try to write your article from a neutral point of view.

Try to put the information in the right section

The information about a content should be listed in the "CV-Resume: content" section, the information on a type in the "CV-Resume: types" section and so on.

Split a long article into several paragraphs

It'll be easier to read.

Respect others' content

Do not critisize others' contributions only because "you don't agree" or because "you think you can do better". Respect other people's work and try to integrate your content with the existing one, trying to explain your point of view.

If you think some content should be deleted you can write a message to the Cv-Resume mailing list and discuss the deletion with the community.


Do not add promotional articles

We are a CV-Resume guide, not the Yellow Pages!.

Do not add political/religious statements or offensive related content

We know you are angry with the World or that your cousin is an expert of the history of Cv-Resume but, hey, this is the wrong place for you!

Do not use capital letters inappropriately


Do not write articles a language different from English

We know that Swahili is cool but, we are sorry, most of the people won't understand it.
