General notes* on how you can contribute to make the wiki a better place (* these are general ideas and not a guideline):

Pinephone article

Required

- The next batch needs to be added to the article (intro, hardware revisions section etc.) - A proper warning in the introduction section about the state of the software, goal of the project, at which users the phone is marketed towards - Make the articles ready for BSD and other OSes, too Linux-specific right now - A support section, directing users towards the community chat in case of issues - Better structure of the "first time installation" paragraph - (documentation of the) mainline status of the phone is a big point people could look into

Improvements

- Battery section doesn't look that good (outdated picture, random lists in the section) - "Carrier support" overhaul (hard to find, hard to maintain, goals of the section) - Accessory compatibility in general (especially: hard to maintain, goals of the section/lists, how is it tested, how good is the information quality for readers etc.) - Software section needs to be updated (for example removal of "What works, what doesn't", style updates, link checks) - Installation section should be better readable -> graphics, pictures, structure etc.

Quality

- Simplification of the currently used English language - Some graphical elements such as boxes wouldn't hurt - Kernel commands to read the sensors, similar to the postmarketOS wiki article (might be too OS-specific for the OS-agnostic wiki -> different variants for different OSes?) - More mentions of the devs, maybe a dedicated section

Long-term goals

- Good readability - Nice Graphics - Article needs to be structured and logical (always important to read it from the eyes of an new user) - Secondary goal: prevent Pine's support from being drowned with unnecessary support mails if they can also ask in the chat or read the wiki - Independently of an user reading the wiki or not, the wiki article is likely too complicated. People asking questions in chat = the article needs to be improved
