Default Tonka (1958)

Could someone tell me if I'm creating this page correctly?

Organize gun headings like this:

=[Gun Type]=
==[Gun Make & Model]==

Also, link to gun pages in the description paragraph, NOT in the heading title, and there's no need to link to gun category pages.

The Page Templates page lays it all out.

Default Tonka being a candidate for deletion

How long do I have to get this page going? I'm still rather unfamiliar with just how to get a page to look correct. I'm ocd about getting it right, but I also don't have much time to work on it. I'm lagging behind in my college work, and I have until November 25th to improve my grades. What should I do? Some marked the page for deletion.

You can transfer your work to the talk page or make a sandbox on your user page. There's less pressure there.

Right click and highlight the text on the edit page, copy it, then past it to either the talk page or your sandbox and save it.
