What's up with those Beginner's guide/guidee redirects? :-/ --Alad (talk) 20:40, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm sorry, I was trying to change the capitalization of the title, but I've made a mess. :(
I was trying to make it "Beginner's Guide". Trusktr (talk) 20:41, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What for?? Please, read Help:Style#Title, especially the first item -- Kycok (talk) 20:55, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
K, fixed. Sorry! Learning experience. "Beginners' guide" sounds like "Beginnerses guide" while "Beginner's guide" sounds like "Beginners guide" (at least here in the US) so I changed it to the second so it is spelled as people would expect it to sound.

People in the US at least. I'm not sure about English in other countries, but I believe it's likely the same. Trusktr (talk) 20:59, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Please use your talk page, not mine :) (Help:Editing#Discussion pages)
I hope you'll not do such edits in the future, just remember about it :) As I know in English it must be Beginners' guide, not Beginner's guide. Also please always discuss such changes, especially in main articles (such as installation guides), before editing
It's OK. There are some articles, that would help you to avoid mistakes in the future: Help:Style and Help:Editing

Thank you so much Kycok. :) Do you get a notification of my reply even though it's not on your page?

You can watch any page, including someone else's talk page. If it's in your watchlist, you get a notification. -- Karol (talk) 21:36, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As Karol says, I just need to temporarily subscribe to your page -- Kycok (talk) 21:45, 13 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Trusktr, I see you seem to have learnt the lesson this time, it's normal to make mistakes, even if they are huge like this one :) However I'm just writing to warn you that if something like this happens again in the future, there will not be any more warnings before your account is blocked: just please make sure to discuss radical changes before doing them next time, we all believe you can become a better editor and a great resource for the wiki. -- Kynikos (talk) 04:28, 14 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
