{{News|1=01/14/2010 - Internationalization Guidelines|2=As you may have noticed, many articles have been moving around this past month; especially non-English ones.

{{News|2013/12/08 - MediaWiki 1.22.0 has broken code templates|2=After [https://projects.archlinux.org/vhosts/wiki.archlinux.org.git/commit/?id=4ac9fa081a7c045f6a9f1cfc529d82423f485b2e upgrading] MediaWiki to version 1.22.0, the wiki will not parse wiki syntax or HTML code inside [[Template:bc]] and [[Template:hc]] anymore, rendering them as plain text. This has broken many templates around, especially those that were using {{ic|<nowiki>''</nowiki>}} and {{ic|<nowiki>'''</nowiki>}} for highlighting parts of code with italic or bold. Please help fixing them, guidelines for dealing with the various cases are a work in progress.|3=[[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 11:39, 8 December 2013 (UTC)}}

* Localized titles can and should still be created, but only as redirects to the English-named article.

* [[Template:i18n]] should be used in place of the old [[Template:i18n links start]], [[Template:i18n entry]], and [[Template:i18n links end]] combination.

A wiki is a collection of knowledge, most of which ends up being how-to's, which is to be expected. Let us always remember to add the 'why' to our how-to's. Explanatory information always goes further toward imparting knowledge than does instruction alone. Adding explanatory wiki articles is also welcome. Why not add one if you are qualified?

I've changed the wiki skin to the one used over at http://wiki.archlinuxfr.org (and formerly used on the german community's site). It is much less cluttered than the previous skin and fits the theme on the rest of our pages better. Enjoy.|--[[User:Neotuli|simo]] 15:53, 2 March 2007 (EST)
