Name:Documentation Discussion and Help
Posting Access:All Members
Community description:For discussing how to document historical projects and write research papers in the SCA.
This community is intended for members of the Society for Creative Anachronism to discuss research papers, documentation for A&S projects, and dress diaries and web/Compleat Anachronist/Tournaments Illuminated/etc. articles.

What This Community Is For:

1. Discussing the characteristics of good and bad documentation (there may not be consensus!).

2. Getting help organizing your documentation.

3. Finding someone to edit your documentation for clarity, grammar, etc.

4. Getting help making convincing arguments from the evidence you have.

5. Finding someone to draw diagrams for your documentation (they may want something in exchange).

What This Community Is Not For:

1. Research help--that's a whole complicated area of its own. This community is for helping you express your research clearly, concisely, and convincingly.

2. Help writing papers for school or for professional publication. Both are worthy goals, but not the same thing.

3. Copyright advice. That falls into the realm of "legal advice," where we dare not tread.
