The detachment of the communities' corpora from their respective articles has bemused me. Why is this so? IDX 11:55, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

Look at the actual edit pages for LD4all and Reading material. Basically the same text can be automatically placed in two seperate articles. r3m0t 16:13, 9 May 2005 (UTC)


I have just stumbled upon the existence of 'shorthand' templates such as cat. Surely typing four more characters to form Category isn't too hard, for readability's sake. IDX 11:58, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

That's five characters ;) I think saving typing = editors are encouraged to write more. cat and category are equivalent for now. r3m0t 16:13, 9 May 2005 (UTC)

Stub templates[]

What is the use of stub templates not already filled by Template:Fill? I don't think the different stub messages are necessary. One is enough. r3m0t 11:24, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

For a start the Template:Fill is messy, contains no links or 'expand it' bits. Secondly, I was just following Wikipedian tradition. I think they are quite presentable, but yes you are right in saying there is no need for a lot, just a few I'd say. Template:Fill has thus been superceded and should be deleted.

Template:Fill should be used solely for empty sections. Please use stubs for entire articles. IDX 11:31, 16 May 2005 (UTC)
It's funny that you say they should be for sections, then break them for section 2 at LD4all. Note where the edit link leads. r3m0t 09:36, 17 May 2005 (UTC)
