Probably we all make beginner's mistakes when we start as editors. I am still embarrassed by mine. Many such blunders could be avoided if each new editor was handed a list of guidelines or, at least, a few suggestions. Last year a new editor asked for guidance and received a few tips
. At the very least new editors should be pointed to that forum discussion, as well as the Page creation tips
, and encouraged to read all the editors' forum discussions
Is somebody willing to start writing such guidelines? I am not very good at it.
