==Broken templates==
 
Hi Flu, thank you for all the help you're giving on the wiki! However I have to ask you to always preview and check your edits, in fact [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Installing_Arch_Linux_in_VMware&diff=259537&oldid=258224], [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=MacBook&diff=259886&oldid=256737], [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Compiz&diff=260564&oldid=258926] and [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=ASUS_Eee_PC_901&diff=next&oldid=259010] have broken some templates (found thanks to [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Error]]). Can you please fix them? :) -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 13:28, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Eheh it's me again, I'd also like to ask you to suspend temporarily the substitution of [[Template:ic]] with '''bold''' until we've come to a conclusion in [[Help talk:Style#Reducing formatting bloat]].

While helping this [https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1288635 confused user] I found that you applied 'style' changes to the [[postfix]] article and this is an FYI that when changing 'PRE' to '{{ bc' it mangles the single quotes as they will be interpreted as wiki markup. I have corrected this specific instance but maybe you need to review some other articles you updated. :)

Bold vs monospace

Eheh it's me again, I'd also like to ask you to suspend temporarily the substitution of Template:ic with bold until we've come to a conclusion in Help talk:Style#Reducing formatting bloat. I promise to give that discussion a high priority, since I admit it was practically left abandoned. -- Kynikos (talk) 14:00, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Ok, you are the boss. -- Flu (talk) 14:52, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Bumblebeed automatic startup - key information removed

Line 61 being removed made it an unnecessary hassle to troubleshoot the issue after reinstalling Bumblebee today. I finally figured out this was what I was missing after looking at Google's cached version.

"To start bumblebee automatically at startup, enable bumblebeed service:

systemctl enable bumblebeed"

I really do not get your point, the current edit (my one) says:
Tip: You may want to enable systemd service bumblebeed.
which means the same thing.
The reason I removed it is daemon operations deprecation. -- Flu (talk) 06:14, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
Reworked a bit: does this look better?
Tip: If you wish bumblebee to start at boot, you have to enable systemd service bumblebeed.

Thanks for the link, the rule makes sense. But yes, the wording should make a big difference. Thanks.

Your style changes in postfix article breaks its content

While helping this confused user I found that you applied 'style' changes to the postfix article and this is an FYI that when changing 'PRE' to '{{ bc' it mangles the single quotes as they will be interpreted as wiki markup. I have corrected this specific instance but maybe you need to review some other articles you updated. :)
