Uniform Look for Qt and GTK Applications

Hi, I've reverted your edits to this article for now [1], please consider Help:Style/White space (I forgot on this rule before myself ;) -- Alad (talk) 09:06, 15 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I did not know about it. Aside from being a totally stupid rule that decreases readability, next time just revert the edits you object to, not everything… --MarkusS (talk) 10:44, 15 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
While you are entitled your opinion, style rules were made after community discussion so it's natural you follow them. You're always free to discuss a change in Help_talk:Style, of course. And next time, follow the ArchWiki:Contributing#The_3_fundamental_rules, then your edits won't get reverted. Thank you. -- Alad (talk) 12:55, 15 December 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi, thanks for your contributions to the KDE article, but I'd like to (again) remind you of the three fundamental rules and give clear explanations of changes you make. For example, [2] removed "Disabling access keys" and [3] changed links around. As a casual KDE user, I'd have some trouble understanding these changes. -- Alad (talk) 14:29, 12 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I suggest you better read what I changed. Regarding Phonon links I wrote: “In the past other backends were developed as well but are no longer maintained and their AUR packages have been deleted.” So yes, I removed AUR links to packages that no longer exist.
Konqueror is unmaintained with a successor in development. Lengthy discussions of unmaintained software is IMO an undue impairment of readability. Feel free to re-add that section if you think that it's vital… --MarkusS (talk) 23:34, 12 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I wasn't talking on the AUR links, but [4] and [5]. Regarding Konqueror, you've given no proof that it will be discontinued.
Otherwise I suggest you to stop blaming others for your own laziness, and respect basic wiki guidelines. I won't repeat this again. -- Alad (talk) 23:44, 12 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see nothing in the "three fundamental rules" that forbid removing links. So I forgot edit summaries. My bad. Revert my changes if you think re-adding deleted AUR links and trivial GUI settings, also described upstream (see how I reused your summary from [6]?), that makes it better… --MarkusS (talk) 01:41, 13 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
