    In this sticky thread:
    all links to proposed guides are dead.

    Here's an interesting suggestion...

    Instead of simply reporting it to the staff and expecting us to fix it, you could engage the community mindset and make a post in the thread which says something along the lines of:-

    "Unfortunately all the style guides that were linked have long since disappeared, but here's a few links to others that I've managed to find........"

    Possibly even find the Embarcadero one that will undoubtedly exist and be considered a replacement for the Borland one.

    I simply find the topic itself of dubious use. So I am not inclined to do any research on it.
    But there could be someone around who thinks otherwise, so I still reported it, just in case.
    To be honest I am beginning to forget what "embarcadero" is, I'm a FPC-only man. But as fpc documentation is much less developed, so are the chances of me finding a useful link

    Taking and not Giving is a bad policy for anyone in any kind of community. The community can only grow if members contribute. Your lack of community spirit disturbs me...

    From what I'm seeing around the web and other forums the most commonly used coding style amongst Delphi developers is JEDI coding style (coding style that is used in Jedi Visual Component Library).
    This one is also the one that I'm using the most, even thou I occasionally break some codding style rules.
