Here's a few informal conventions in use on this wiki and elsewhere.

In general, systematic page names are used quite a bit for categorization. Eg,

- AboutZwikiDiscussion - when you want to keep a page's discussion separate, move it to a page of the same name with Discussion appended.

- Archive pages - when you want to clean up but keep old content around, move it to a page of the same name with Archive appended. 

- Log pages - eg !YournamesLog. A frequently-updated webblog-style page. 

- [FAQ], GuidePages, HowTos, Issues.. etc.

- personal pages - a page named YourName is your personal page in the wiki. For examples, see PeopleIndex. 

- signing: comments are signed automatically, based on your UserOptions. If you want to sign an edit, --YourName or YourName: is typical. See also SignatureShortCut.

See also: WikiPolicy, GardeningPolicy, BestPractices etc etc.
