If you want to create a new HowTo, please consider the following points:
 
* Use the [[How To Template|HowToTemplate]] for the layout of new pages.
 
* Titles of HowTo pages always start with "HowTo". The titles should not contain complicated [[MusicBrainz Terminology|MusicBrainzTerminology]] but be simple and orientated at what the users could look for. E.g. [[How To Make Relationships|HowToMakeRelationships]] rather than [[How To Advanced Relationships|HowToAdvancedRelationships]].
 
* Find a good place in the structured list below to link to your HowTo. Don't think about the technical background of it but where users would expect to find it.
 
* Remember: HowTo's should just be simple step by step instructions for how to do things, not document features! You can link to the documentations for further information though.
 
* For short questions we have the [[Frequently Asked Questions|FrequentlyAskedQuestions]], so HowTo's should be a bit longer than that. ;)
