What goes into a method page

Briefly, a method page could contain:

  • A one-line introduction to the method or set of methods
  • Context and background on the method
  • Questions and a prompt to add your own
  • Activities to guide people to how to begin using or contributing to the project

A much more complete description of methods can be found here.
