General hello to new users

Hello XXX,

Welcome to Congresspedia and SourceWatch. As the Congresspedia editor I try to greet new users and offer any guidance I can help them get acquainted with the site. Your best reference is going to be the Congresspedia help page, which links to just about every other help or guideline page you’ll need. As a wiki, we depend on our citizen researchers/journalists, so please continue editing! Feel free to use my talk page or email me at Conor AT sourcewatch.org if I can be of any assistance.

The example with "a" gives alphabetic sorting; that with "e" ditto, the data are not mistaken for numbers in scientific format.

The first example demonstrates that text is positioned at zero, and that e.g. e3 for 1000 is not allowed; use 1e3 instead. Using Template:Tim, a number in scientific notation can be displayed with a superscript, while still allowing numeric sorting (compare the method described in the next section). It also shows that "-" should be used, not "?". The first element "12 or 13 sm=n" has a visible "sm=n", although it is normally made invisible; when this element is at the top, numeric sorting mode applies.

The second example shows that expressions are not sorted according to their evaluated value, but according to the first number.

The third example shows that a percentage is accepted for numeric sorting mode, but ignored in the actual sorting, so if a column contains percentages, all numbers have to be written as a percentage.

The fourth example shows again that "ca. 12" sorts at 0, as opposed to 12 with some text after it, which sorts at 12. In the latter case an invisible "sm=n" needs to be put at the end, in case such an element arrives at the top of a column, which would otherwise cause alphabetic sorting mode.

Sortable version of Template:Mlw, using smn to specify numeric sort mode:
