Yes, you're exactly on target with your concept. No one likes to read for information. Reading for information is work. In fact, I have yet to do a Bisq trade, in no small part, because of the initial info.(I want to do a money order trade)

That being said, IMO there needs to be a degree of friendliness. This is always a trade off.

I wondered who, how, and how much information has been converted.

I'll take a look at you example a bit later today.

Short, succinct articles which can then be referenced and linked to. Do away with the flare and just provide accurate information. I hope I am correct in my assumption, otherwise please let me know.

[#2](https://github.com/bisq-network/support/issues/2)'s intro may too long and may include too many details and [#3](https://github.com/bisq-network/support/issues/3) was just a quick explanation of how trading fees work in Bisq. 2 and 3 were essentially copied over from the original bisq docs.

Therefore, i am concerned that creating guides with too little detail may leave the user looking for answers. However, i am new to this whole wiki business and am here to learn. Personally i prefer articles that are to the point and concise.
