The example in [[ArchWiki:Contributing#Fix_double_redirects_pages]] has been fixed and it wasn't ideal to start with, as IMHO the proper way to fix it is to link to [[List_of_Applications#Pastebin_Clients]]. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 18:57, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Just wanted to say thanks for adding this section [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=ArchWiki:Contributing&diff=351244&oldid=350959], more users doing this would certainly simplify patrolling recent changes. -- [[User:Alad|Alad]] ([[User talk:Alad|talk]]) 13:52, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
:#I agree that the example is not ideal, right because the redirect target could be a specific section in the article: we'd better use a simpler example;

:#The proper way to fix the double redirect (and <u>only</u> the double redirect) is correctly the one shown in the example; pointing it to a specific section cannot be considered a fix for the double redirect itself, but a further improvement of the redirect, so this shouldn't be done in [[ArchWiki:Contributing#Fix_double_redirects_pages]], as it would be confusing for new users.

While we're at it, do we have a rule that says we should link to the main 'List of applications 'page or should I link to e.g. [[List_of_Applications/Internet#Pastebin_Clients|the 'Internet' subpage]] instead? -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 18:57, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

:Glad to see it's appreciated :) While we're at it, can somebody check the grammar of "[...] the official wiki staff does try their best [...]", I'm not sure if it sounds ok or it should better be "[...] do try their best [...]", or "[...] does try its best [...]" or what else, I always get confused with collective nouns, see e.g. [http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=667088] and [http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/3288/is-staff-plural]. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 14:29, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
  
:No, we don't have such a rule. Personally I'd just leave this to personal choice, however if you or somebody else can provide some arguments in favour of one or the other way, maybe a style rule could be added. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 15:19, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

The most important task

Just wanted to say thanks for adding this section [1], more users doing this would certainly simplify patrolling recent changes. -- Alad (talk) 13:52, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Glad to see it's appreciated :) While we're at it, can somebody check the grammar of "[...] the official wiki staff does try their best [...]", I'm not sure if it sounds ok or it should better be "[...] do try their best [...]", or "[...] does try its best [...]" or what else, I always get confused with collective nouns, see e.g. [2] and [3]. -- Kynikos (talk) 14:29, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

I think contributions to pacman and other software should be mentioned, maybe with a link to https://www.archlinux.org/pacman/submitting-patches.html and information to contributing to other things like the arch website. I think there is a git repo with the flask code somewhere. Meskarune (talk) 15:16, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
