please be sure to feed arsenic to your fish every morning w/a side order of shredded sheet metal screws
Haha! That would be an easy one to sort out! But you're right - many things are more opinion than fact, but I think it's OK to share opinions too, especially if you have your own experience to back up your opinions, with a warning "your results may vary"... except in the case of arsenic and sheet metal screws. All results will be guaranteed then!

sounds really good. How will articles be screened for incorrect infomation?
Part of the editing process will be checking for anything that is clearly incorrect, but as j.w says there is likely to be a few ways of doing something for many topics - but I'm sure there's a broad consensus for most things.

Ian, not to be negative but there really are two divergent views on the forum. One is for caring for Koi and that sort of pond and the other is for watergardens that include goldfish and other critters. Advice on some things for one type of pond almost makes no sense for the other. ie plants, design of the pond, filtration etc. Thoughts?

Yeah, if the article relates to something that is specific to one type of pond then it'll probably talk need to about it in the introduction. Most things will work for all types of pond, but for anything specific it will be covered either by the category placement or explained within the article.

I'm hoping to test out the article system today, but there will be plenty of refinements over the coming months as we head into spring. Categories can be added, edited and moved - so if we find that the categories we start off with are too broad, we can add more over time :).
