As part of an effort to improve pages for the MediaWiki Action API, we are reviewing some of the most popular documentation pages and editing them for better clarity and readability. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:FAQ is used frequently by visitors seeking information about the MediaWiki Action API and APIs in general.
- Define the appropriate audience for this page? Uncover who is using it and what the needs are of visitors who look for information here. What do they most want to know? Is a FAQ the best format to deliver this information in?
- After considering audience needs and the format, review the page to determine what information should remain, what is redundant or can be moved to different pages in the API namespace and what should be added to this page to make it more valuable.
- Rewrite, reorganize, revise, as needed.
- Review this page with collaborators and site visitors to determine what is working and what is not working.
