I just went through a difficult article submission process, and I can see where a session like this would be valuable particularly about the Wikipedia syntax. The coding is a little different than say Wordpress. Also, I didn't find the online reference materials all that helpful. It wasn't until I started to copy other pages coding/formatting that my page came together. The other thing I think would be helpful to people considering to create pages especially for companies is to have a discussion about what constitutes language that "sounds like advertising." Sounding like advertising is cause for page rejection, and I am not sure what the standard is and whether it is applied consistently.
I will say that once it was published, Google indexed it within about two hours.
