Window managers

Why not remove this page? Nothing links to it, your edits link to the old Window Manager page. -- Karol 17:03, 31 August 2011 (EDT)

My thinking was to add the redirect to facilitate seaching. But I'm new here so if you think that's not desirable I'm happy to get rid of it. Emiralle 17:14, 31 August 2011 (EDT)
We already have List of window managers that redirect to Window Manager and searching the wiki for 'window managers' gives IMHO pretty good results already, so I don't think a new page is necessary. -- Karol 17:23, 31 August 2011 (EDT)
Sure thing, marked for deletion. Thanks for the feedback, I'll be more careful in future. --Emiralle 17:42, 31 August 2011 (EDT)
Wiki is more about links, so if you create a page, make sure it links to some other pages and/or some existing pages link to the new page. Mentioning search terms in the article is enough, usually there's no need to create a separate page solely for redirect purposes. -- Karol 17:56, 31 August 2011 (EDT)


I think merging Adding Runlevels into Runlevels has been a good idea, IMO you can go on and end the job by redirecting Adding Runlevels to Runlevels. And I guess there's no reason to keep the Merge and Stub templates there. -- Kynikos 06:49, 3 September 2011 (EDT)

Done deal. --Emiralle 18:50, 7 September 2011 (EDT)

CLI template usage

I recently noticed that you added the CLI template to the During Arch Linux installation section of the GRUB2 article. I started a discussion on ArchWiki Requests, which you may be interesting in contributing to. ~ Filam 10:50, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

Thanks for pointing me to the discussion. I've reverted all my CLI template edits until some conclusion is reached. --Emiralle 14:46, 8 September 2011 (EDT)


About [1] you got it right: Template:i18n is going to be standard on all articles and probably also categories. You're doing great :) -- Kynikos 09:14, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

Thanks for the feedback. Hard to keep track of these things sometimes! --Emiralle 01:59, 26 September 2011 (EDT)

Category:Boot loaders (Español)

May I ask you why you moved Category:Boot loaders (Español) to Category:Boot Loaders (Español) when the other two languages using it, English and Italian, use the lower-case version? -- Kynikos 20:10, 22 September 2011 (EDT)

My understanding from Talk:Table of Contents#ToC restructuring was that all category names are supposed to use title case. When I started restructuring the spanish categories I thought I'd leave them all in title case and let other languages catch up. I do realize that causes issues with the i18n template... sorry if I got ahead of myself with that. Let me know if you'd prefer I leave it matching the other languages. --Emiralle 22:01, 22 September 2011 (EDT)
I see now, actually I replied only about the suffix question, but it's been my fault for indenting my answer under the related note. I think capitalization in category names should be discussed separately, although I don't see it as an urgent issue. If I'm not mistaken, you didn't recapitalize many categories, if you could revert them to their previous names it would be good for now, kk? -- Kynikos 11:12, 23 September 2011 (EDT)
I didn't recapitalize many, but I created lots of categories to replace ones with names in Spanish. Almost all of them are capitalized like titles, many of the English equivalents are not. I'd have to create new categories to match the English capitalizations.
I'll revert the ones I changed now, but I don't really see the harm in them: the i18n template isn't yet on any English categories that I've seen and they all might be moved eventually anyways. --Emiralle 22:59, 23 September 2011 (EDT)
Of course you didn't break anything :) Just leave the new categories as they are for now, renaming them or the English ones will be discussed when we'll start including the i18n template everywhere. -- Kynikos 06:07, 24 September 2011 (EDT)
I've moved all pages/categories to (Español) tagged category names matching the English capitalization, only where these already existed. I left the offending Title Capitalized categories alone, except for decategorizing some to avoid confusion. The Table of Contents (Español) should reflect the current state of things. When something is decided regarding the capitalization convention it should be easy to verify what needs changing from there. --Emiralle 02:13, 26 September 2011 (EDT)
