AHA... so someone finally put this big blank space, begging to be used, to use. ;) -Edward

<nods> Seemed like the best place to call attention to all the little "behind the scenes" discussions that might otherwise get overlooked.--Albedo 08:50, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Page Policy

Do we want to remove items as they are resolved? Or leave stuff here as a default archive of past "events"? For instance, the multi-page "defense" re-organization has long ago been finalized - is there any reason to keep the notice here? Otoh, some of the "discussions" are on-going, even if on haitus or back-burned for the moment.)--Albedo 18:44, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Handling template breaking of redirects?

How do we want to handle this? For example, {{L|Furnace Operator}} doesn't work; nor does {{L|pearlash}} - you have to use {{L|ash|pearlash}} to get it to go to the right place. Note that these examples don't work on this page; see 40d:kiln for examples. --Bombcar 17:56, 3 April 2010 (UTC) (Reposted here from Style discussion page by --Albedo 21:10, 3 April 2010 (UTC))

In the case of {{L|Furnace Operator}}, correct wiki style suggests that the link should read {{L|Furnace operator}}. However, since this mistake will reoccur with high probability, a redirect could be appropriate. In other cases, redirects or fixing the links are both appropriate responses to the broken links. --Briess 22:05, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
