Unique naming scheme for localized pages

Ok. To coordinate work a bit, I'd like to overtake the task to introduce a unique naming scheme for localized wiki pages. Commonly used and probably most sensible form of naming wiki pages is "FAQ_(Language)". In order to move pages like [FAQ(Deutsch] to [FAQ_(Deutsch], someone needs to delete the former pages since copy and pasting the content would not fulfill the wiki principle with version control and history. Or is there any other possibility which I don't see at he moment? hellwoofa 11:50, 3 November 2006 (EST)

There is an option to rename the badly formulated titles. You simply click "Move this page" button at the bottom. Why it is called that I don't know, but it works like as a way to rename pages. --foxbunny 14:24, 5 November 2006 (PST)

Yeah, I know about the "move" function which works like "mv"... renaming something. But what I wanted to say is that it is impossible for normal users to move a page to a new title if this new title is already existing (in my case it was a REDIRECT). We don't have the rights to move it in this case... hellwoofa 13:41, 6 November 2006 (PST)

In preparation for possible DokuWiki migration

Also, here is one more suggestion. Since there is much talk about moving to DocuWiki, it may be wise to name all pages (including English) using the following scheme:

Article title (Language)

This is also partly applied to the new category tree.

Also, please read this page.
