New developers and old developers alike: I've noticed some bullshit happening in the engine. Specifically, one of the region_ functions is returning a variant. Don't do that.

I've started a page of basic guidelines on the wiki. Read it there, discuss here.

This might be a little off topic, but we need conventions for the wiki pages too. Wiki articles should not be in first person and they should be as least bias as possible.

For objective articles, yes, but a huge portion of the Wiki is opinions, personalized instructions, and tutorials. In those situations, there's no point to trying to formalize everything; you're there to listen to what someone has to say.
