@Danie: This is the first TeX-like group that I've joined and I've found it to have a good atmosphere. Serious enough that we don't get overwhelmed with silly stuff, but not so serious that we can't enjoy ourselves (for example, I note that your question has only one downvote).

comment Oxidation/reduction arrows, overhead and below, with oxidation numbers also

General advice on the TikZ/PGF manual section numbering problem, include the name of the subsection and the version of TikZ/PGF that you're using.

@Martin: That's exactly the sort of thing I'd like this place to avoid. (Though I did once have a friend who said "As 5 -> 0 ..." with a straight face.)

@Danie: You should add any new examples that you think of as answers rather than editing the question.
