Text Styles

  1. When mixing Chinese and English, use Chinese full-width punctuation marks by default.
  2. When mixing Chinese and English, if there is a complete English sentence, use English half-width punctuation marks within that sentence.
  3. Inline links are generally bolded to improve readability.
  4. Use accurate proper nouns:

    Incorrect: 使用 github 登录
    Correct: 使用 GitHub 登录

  5. Use straight quotation marks for Chinese, instead of regular quotation marks:

    Incorrect: 华广机器人队,也称为“野狼队”
    Correct: 华广机器人队,也称为「野狼队」

  6. Avoid repeating punctuation marks for emphasis.

Writing Style

  • If it is not necessary, do not add unnecessary entities.
  • To improve readability, try to avoid using long sentences and break them into multiple simple sentences if possible.
  • Arguments should be supported by evidence, avoid making claims without examples.
