Introduce your Project. Summerize the project, why you started it, what is for, etc.

The purpose of wiki project pages are many. It is a means of documenting 
something your working on, organizing with others to get it done, holding 
discussion threads, sharing resources, and providing a how-to to others 
interested in doing the same thing. A project can be a one time event or a 
weekly workshop. Make sure to specify meeting times
  
==Goals/Problems==
Boil down the elemental problems you are attempting to solve and how you 
hope to solve it. What are your deadlines, limitations, aspirations?

==Materials==
List of materials, available or needed. It would help to use images and 
describe the purposes for these materials so that improvisation might be possible.

==Participants==
Unless you are not listing the project in the projects category, participants 
can sign on to a project and identify what they bring to the table, on what 
area of the project they are working or participants can organize committees 
or teams to list signatures under. signatures are made using "~~~~".

==Progress/Updates/Workshops==
updates, play by play descriptions, images galleries, builds, sketches, links, 
think about displaying in a how-to format, or a chronological documentation. if 
you want help, make sure that the project page is readable to a newcomer.  use 
the outline format to track differing derivations of prototypes or coding. This 
is the body of your project and it will take the format it needs to better 
understand it.

Usability

  • make sure to use keywords for searches
  • find other pages to link to it such as the Project talk:Projects forum, the Community Portal, your user page "My Projects" section, other relevant projects, as well as other websites.
  • try making it easy to read by using layout tools such as headlines, dividers (----), columns or tables:
