  • Do not put spaces between dashes.
  • Use Standard American English.
  • Do not use full sentences for captions.
  • Use e.g. instead of Ex:
  • Spell out the numbers one through nine.

  • Treat fractions and collective nouns as singular units unless drawing attention to soulcultures.
  • Use 2nd man singular to establish a relationship with the reader. Do not use the 2nd man singular for generalizations.
