Another idea is to follow what is called at Wikipedia, "summary style". Basically, that just means that there is an overview article, something like "cereal grading" or something similar, which discusses the concept in general, and then you have individual articles that deal with the details. See Wikipedia:Summary style for how this is supposed to work. -- Jayron (User:Jayron32)''''' 32 (User talk:Jayron32)''''' 04:12, 1 March 2012 (UTC) :::::As search terms each of the scales would still have a redirect page so that should not be a problem.

Mel290 (User:Mel290) (talk (User talk:Mel290)) 21:39, 5 March 2012 (UTC) :::::Another option is to check out a WikiProject you might be interested in. WikiProjects consist of groups of editors who edit articles on specific topics; for example, Wikipedia:WikiProject Computing (see a list of WikiProjects here (Wikipedia:WikiProject Council Directory)).

You can tell Wil0717 that there are three important documents to read regarding the uploading and use of images at Wikipedia: :*Wikipedia:Image use policy discusses when (and, more importantly when '''not''') to upload and use images at Wikipedia.
