Please undo the cat edits

Manolo, the category edits must all be reverted to their prior position (at the top of articles). Please kindly rollback these changes a.s.a.p. Thanks.Misfit138 20:06, 16 November 2009 (EST)

Glad to help RE: templates! Great work so far cleaning up the wiki; keep it up! -- pointone 22:01, 11 November 2009 (EST)


No problem with copying fonts on my part. I'm pleased someone cleaned it up. And the related pages are looking good too. --Thisoldman 18:18, 13 November 2009 (EST)


Manolo, I did not know that about Section linking. In Links_to_sections_of_a_document, currently there is no mention of using #Section, just Section. After reading Wikipedia's Help:Link on Section linking, I understand what you mean now. Thanks for pointing that out and the complement. And of course you are also making great contribs, don't stop.

Suggestions

For the most part, I want to thank you for your edits. You have made some good corrections and additions.

However, I wish to point out in the "Automatic login manager startup" section that the comma should not follow the word "otherwise" in that particular context. You might try replacing it with the word "or" to see my point.

Another thing that I see on your personal web page is that you don't believe in capitalizing main words in a title. For the sake of simplicity alone, if not for the other good reasons, it makes no sense to ignore the hundreds of years of words in titles being capitalized just for the sake of some minor wiki. There seems to be no rationale for such a position. Perhaps you could better explain your position.

Thanks. - KitchM 11:38, 15 November 2009 (EST)

About titles: it is a stylistic choice and it favors "Troubleshooting" statements, which are not unusual in our wiki. Besides that, I frankly won't take in consideration "hundreds of years [...]".
That's just my opinion. When the article is up, it'll be freely editable just as it is now.
About the corrections: if you see anything you want to alter, go ahead and do so! Even in my user page. The intention is to make it better/something we can all come closed to agreeing on before making it an actual guideline. You can also correct the small comma in Automatic login manager startup, etc. etc. manolo 13:15, 15 November 2009 (EST)
Clarification: KitchM was talking about article TITLE capitalization, which I, too, believe should follow "This Kind of Casing". Within articles themselves, though, I agree with you: "This kind of casing" works best for article HEADINGS.
I noticed you updated the ArchWiki Tutorial regarding article title casing, so I was curious as well.

Oh, my bad. Article titles should remain how they were. I'll revert the tutorial. manolo 13:57, 15 November 2009 (EST)
Sorry, I should have been more clear. In literature, and in books in particular, there are almost no use of lower case leading letters in main words of any title. That's what I meant for "hundreds of years". In other words, since books began being printed. It is so very rare to do otherwise that the weight of evidence is self-evident. (Pardon the pun.)
Also, I actually see a title as a title. Sub-titles or section headings are still titles. So I'm trying to be consistent across the board. I am taking this idea up with the mos to see what folks say. I would like to know more about the ideas behind any consensus on the topic - KitchM 11:39, 18 November 2009 (EST)
