We need to figure out how to deal with disambiguation pages. It is obvious that CSS can be either Cascading Style Sheets or Content Scramble System, and I don't think this particular wiki should give preference to one known value over another if the abbreviation can be expanded to an unambiguous name. That's why I linked to CSS on the DVD page, rather than linking directly to Content Scramble System. Unless we plan to sort this out immediately, it might be best to leave that link in place, so that we don't lose track of it. Thoughts? Gphemsley (talk) 02:05, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps the current CSS article should be moved to Cascading Style Sheets, and a Content Scramble System article created, with CSS as a disambig article linking to both. But in that case, any specific links to a particular kind of CSS should link directly to the proper one of the articles, not the disambig one. Dan Tobias (talk) 02:18, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
Done. And created Template:Disambiguation to keep track of disambiguation pages. Gphemsley (talk) 16:00, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Interwiki links

Just a heads-up: You can link to Wikipedia (and a select number of other wikis) using the regular wikilinking syntax by using the relevant wikiprefix. For example: Wikipedia:User:GPHemsley or Wikipedia:Archive Team. That way you can differentiate more intimate links to Wikipedia from truly external links to other websites.

Given this site's founder's opinions of Wikipedia, I'm not sure he'd like to get "more intimate" with it, but I'll keep that in mind anyway. Dan Tobias (talk) 23:07, 17 December 2012 (UTC)


Another wikitip: You can change the links in the sidebar by editing MediaWiki:Sidebar (admins only). You might choose to remove "Current events" and "Help" and add some of the links from the Main page, for example. It takes a somewhat special syntax, though, so you'll probably want to consult mw:Manual:Interface/Sidebar for guidance. GPHemsley (talk) 22:26, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
