mkinitcpio: Using RAID edit not working

The link you tried using in Special:Diff/562596 would not work because you tried linking to Mkinitcpio#Using Raid instead of Mkinitcpio#Using RAID and the capitalization matters. -- Eschwartz (talk) 00:19, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

Executable/application names are italic, not monospaced

In Users and groups you are changing ''appname'' to {{ic|appname}} in situations that should not change, and these are being reverted. Please stick with ArchWiki style. On this subject, please read these two sections:

I reverted your recent change via Special:Diff/565064, just like was done in Special:Diff/565047 and Special:Diff/564779. Please stay tuned to the description on the history.

Long vs short options

Regarding [1]: there is no rule that long options should be used instead of short options, because in some cases (such as pacman or makepkg in the linked edit) the short options are arguably more common than the long ones. This is not the first time, so please stop doing these edits. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 20:08, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

I think the issue of long vs short deserves a broaden discussion. Regid (talk) 16:51, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Of course you can discuss it wherever you want, but discussions outside of the wiki are very unlikely to lead to changes in the style rules for the wiki. There is a dedicated page for discussing style rules: Help talk:Style. I think you may even find a similar discussion there or in its history. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 19:17, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi Regid, please see Help:Style#Spelling, [2], [3], thank you for your (other) contributions :) -- Kynikos (talk) 16:32, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Descriptive edit summaries

Please don't write edit summaries like this. If you added "{", write just "added a missing {" or "fixed template". It is pointless to duplicate what is seen much better in the automatic diff.

Also for this edit summary you just duplicated what you added to the article. This is useless - the added text can be seen in the automatic diff. Instead, your summary should describe why you added it.
