{{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. This was due to a recent discussion on the topic of ArchWiki internationalization. As a result, new guidelines have been drafted and a major transition has begun.
 +
 +
For more detail, please see the related [http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=87189 forum thread] and [[Help:i18n]]. Briefly, the following standards have been set:
 +
 +
* Non-English article titles should be of the form '''Title in English (Language)''', where "Language" is the localized spelling of the language.
 +
* 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.
 +
 +
We hope this does not alienate or inconvenience international users; these changes were made primarily to facilitate wiki maintenance and administration and to simplify inter-language linking. Thanks for your translations and other contributions thus far, and please continue making ArchWiki the envy of distributions world-wide!|3=[[User:Pointone|pointone]] 23:43, 14 January 2010 (EST)}}

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)
