Help:Supplemental tool page
On the XBMC Wiki we want to create pages for all XBMC-related supplemental tools: Category:Supplemental tools
And we want a page for every XBMC supplemental tool! Including the smartphone/tablet remotes!
1 What to include
What's the point of these pages? Well, basically, they're a way to consolidate useful links and information related to XBMC and these tools. They can also be used to point to the currently active thread about the tools (for example, Ember Media Manager). It doesn't have to be anything fancy; it can literally be just a brief description and a list of links, like a community bookmark page.
However, it can also be much more if people wish, like screenshots, documentation, how-to guides, embedded youtube videos, developer information, FAQs, etc. Take a look at these examples for add-on pages: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. (We'll eventually have an infobox for Supplemental tools like the ones you see for add-ons)
Here's a great example for the Official Android Remote, complete with an info box and an FAQ sub-page: Official XBMC Remote

3 General editing help
If anyone is interested in helping out, just make an account on the wiki and have at it. Anyone can edit. The wiki formatting is very easy to understand, and if you need any help you can leave a message at Talk:Main Page at any time. We also have a basic help page here. Brand new accounts can't make new pages for a few days, as an automatic protection against spam, but just leave a message at Talk:Main Page and we will enable page creation manually on your account.
Feel free to ask if you are unsure if you should make a page, but don't be afraid to make mistakes! No one will get mad or be punished for mistakes on the wiki. All edits are saved and we can roll back if there are mistakes. Be bold!
