Moved to document namespace because it is third-party authored. The page now offers a form with reasonable validation and error checking for any edits. --Peter P (talk) 09:15, 19 October 2014 (IST)

Thanks. I didn't know how to make it a document when moving out of the sandbox. Is it just a matter of renaming? (Document:...) Or is it better to start with a template? --Urban (talk) 12:09, 19 October 2014 (IST)
I personally use Form:Document to produce all the documents I create. It may appear daunting at first but it enforces the document template which makes sure semantic properties are properly set. It also makes it less likely that important properties (like subjects, authors etc) are omitted. For most documents, only two of the form tabs are needed - Basic information and Free wikitext. I tend to use Notepad++ to pre-format the free wikitext part (ie the bulk of any document). The sandbox has its uses but you do risk having work overwritten if you spend a long time preparing full articles and documents using it - best to use it just to experiment with such things as tables, maps, special formatting etc. It is possible to move any article to the Document namespace by simply prefixing its name with Document:. Hope that helps. --Peter P (talk) 08:23, 24 October 2014 (IST)
That helped a lot, thanks for the reply. I use my text editor, too now. Next I'll try and create Document:Petrodollar --Urban (talk) 08:34, 26 October 2014 (GMT)
