== Thoughts on clarifying some username policies. ==
Thanks for making those NFL Templates. I noticed some of them weren't being used in the articles, so I inserted them. I hope you continue making those templates. --[[User:Crocoite|Crocoite]] 16:29, 8 February 2008 (EST)

:Ahh, thank you, yeah there was a question of what namespace they should go in for a while - but I think it's pretty much been resolved that the template namespace is adequate; and I certainly do plan on continuing soon! Thanks for putting them in consistently (I like the fact that you put it in its own section - that makes it a lot more clear and it also makes the pages nicer)--<small>[[User:Iduan|<span style="color: #FFCCCC; background: #660000">I]][[User_talk:Iduan|<span style="color:#CCCCFF; background:#000033">Duan]]</span></span></small> 16:31, 8 February 2008 (EST)

:: Those templates were originally in template namespace, and I suggested (months ago) that they shouldn't be.  My reasons were as follows:
+
::* If they are only used on one page, there's little point in making templates for them.
+
::* Current policy is for templates to be locked, so if the roster changes (as I expect would happen reasonably often) then a sysop needs to change (or at least unlock) them.
+
::* If you don't want complex tables cluttering up the article, then they could be put into a sub-page and linked into the article as a template.
+
:: Now, if something has changed, such as them now being used on multiple pages, then that changes things, but otherwise I think they should not be in template namespace.  I've not seen any other discussion on this, so if there is one somewhere, and particularly if it mentions factors that I haven't considered, could you point me to it please?  I'm not laying this down as law, but I think it's pertinent to consider.

:::The only reason I said I thought they should be in the template namespace is because when I started transferring them to the mainspace others started telling me to stop ... I mean frankly I'm fine with you moving them, I'll even go back and fix all the links - because I actually believe that they should be in the mainspace (since they're only being used on one page) - but ultimately it's your call - just give me the heads up whatever you decide and I'll go in and change the links.--<small>[[User:Iduan|<span style="color: #FFCCCC; background: #660000">I]][[User_talk:Iduan|<span style="color:#CCCCFF; background:#000033">Duan]]</span></span></small> 10:20, 9 February 2008 (EST)

== Singular/plural ==

Sorry if i missed this in the [[Conservapedia:Manual of Style|MOS]], but is there a preference to have singular or plural article names?  I found the [[Optic lobes]] article (plural title) and created [[Optic lobe]] with a redirect to it.  I wasn't sure if what I did was ok, or if the singular title should redirect to the plural title, or if both are acceptable.--[[User:Recorder|Recorder]] 11:49, 11 February 2008 (EST)

:I changed the redirect to the singular. Redirecting to the plural makes linking more difficult.  [[User:BrianCo|BrianCo]] 14:24, 11 February 2008 (EST)

Thoughts on clarifying some username policies.

Please check your email so I can ask some questions about these.--ChrisB00 17:16, 19 February 2014 (EST)

Also, I don't know why this posted three times.--ChrisB00 17:18, 19 February 2014 (EST)

I deleted the extra sections. Responded to your email - feel free to ask any questions. Just so everyone knows what I sent/to clarify: Username policy is that you use your first name and last initial; you might see a few users who don't fit under that policy (Conservative, Karajou - even I use the opposite (although your first initial last name would also be okay)), but that is because those users predate the policy.--IDuan 18:11, 19 February 2014 (EST)
