Article titles

Most wikis have singular article titles (for example, "Hoe" rather than "Hoes"). This can make navigating this site somewhat confusing. Do we want to change that or keep titles plural?

  • Good call! I vote to have them singular. This also makes it easier for people to link to pages: "[[Pickaxe]] and [[Pickaxe]]s" for example. As long as there are redirects to from the plural to the singular pages, this would be perfect.

One other thing: There seems to be some sort of confusion with multiple articles being created for the same subject with different capitalization, and I'm not always sure which to mark for deletion. How do we capitalize in titles here? Do we prefer "Flint and Steel" or "Flint and steel"? Thanks much!

  • Even though the Minecraft wiki would use "Flint and Steel", I think I'd rather go with Wikipedia's style of proper noun capitalization, where things will be lowercase like "Flint and steel", unless they are a proper noun, such as "Markus Persson", for example. I've seen a couple duplicate pages too - in those cases, I merge any relevant information into the most completed version of the page, and then set the improperly titled page to redirect to the correct one.

    • Should the more important pages like Version History and Upcoming Features be changed? Because the Main Page is also not capitalized in this way. TheTopazRobot (talk) 17:30, 1 November 2017 (CDT)
  • Hmmmmm... I hadn't thought about that. I wish there was an easy way to make it case insensitive. I think we should keep it as is for now, especially the Main Page. - Zanzlanz (talk) 21:31, 1 November 2017 (CDT)

Categories

Can we nest categories? Some of them are subcategories of other categories.

  • Yes, sounds great! And thanks so much for the amazing help you've been providing! Zanzlanz (talk) 20:39, 15 April 2017 (EDT)

Spam filter

I sometimes can't make needed edits because they trip the spam filter. Can I change the article so it doesn't somehow? I'm not posting links or anything. Thanks!

  • Oh hey! Sorry about the spam filter! Without it, the wiki would be a huge mess. I removed a couple of the phrases that might cause those mistakes though, so give it another go if you'd like! Otherwise, definitely email me the message so I can investigate what might be causing problems.
Additionally, you CAN create external links by starting them with //:blah instead of the typical htttp:// or htttps:// (with only two 'T's of course) - Zanzlanz (talk) 08:45, 13 August 2017 (CDT)
