Changaco, I appreciate the work you've done here by merging and categorizing the Hotkeys article. However, articles within the wiki should follow a standard format for the sake of consistency--and heavy revisions such as this one are perfect opportunities for such changes. That includes things like:
+
* Table of Contents should appear the top, above all text
+
* Articles should open with an '''Introduction''' and close with an '''Additional Resources''' (where applicable
+
* Headings (H1, H2, H3, H4, etc.) should be used logically, beginning at H1 (=SAMPLE=)
+

: I wasn't aware of these rules sorry. Tough I have to add that level 1 titles '''should not be used''' because <nowiki><h1></nowiki> HTML markup should be reserved to the page title. Trust me on that I know web development quite well.

Yes, I agree.
  
:: No worries, I'm a standards-based web designer myselfMultiple H1 titles is frowned upon in terms of SEO, but we're not as concerned about SEO optimization as we are about proper semantic organization of internal documentation--the Arch wiki is already one of the best indexed resources on Google. Thanks again for taking care of Hotkeys, it was growing into quite the behemoth!

showkey and xev report totally different keycodes for media buttonsGetting codes for use in X from showkey is pointless. The article is very misleading. [[User:Dibblethewrecker|dtw]] ([[User talk:Dibblethewrecker|talk]]) 17:42, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

:::I understand the motivation. Note though that Wikipedia articles all use titles from level 2 and it's not a damn mess.

Since i'm a newbie here, I prefer not to do it on my own. IMHO, the organisation should be revamped... I would rather use a "Console" "X.org" split cause xev is of no use in Console, and showkey seems to also be useless in X. I'd add that in many case acpid can be useful for functions key cause independant of X/Console. The fact that the Fn key is sometimes handled in the hardware and invisible to the kernel could be noted too (I searched like 3 hours to get it, searching for where is the error and unable to find it (cause I'm not used to linux and and still don't master logging in linux, so I never thought that it may just be non-existent...) to learn in a random comment on a post that the Fn key sometime just throw a different keycode when pushed... But I don't know if it really belong here, and personally i'd also merge this file with both Extra Keyboard Keys in Xorg and Extra Keyboard Keys in Console, don't know if it's a good idea? I think it's better to not juggle between 32 page cause as a newbie, it's kind of confusing :) Oh, and... should I split my comment in multiple topic instead of one huge?

Better differentiation needed

Yes, I agree.

showkey and xev report totally different keycodes for media buttons. Getting codes for use in X from showkey is pointless. The article is very misleading. dtw (talk) 17:42, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
