User talk:Old Ned
- Hi, I noticed you are doing a lot of "Fixing links to avoid redirection." Are these all the same thing, because you seem to be editing both User: and Normal pages with the same edit note. --Jonzay 06:33, 10 June 2006 (CDT)
UTF-8 curly quotes
- Is it absolutely necessary to use these everywhere? They're kind of ugly, and they make it more difficult to perform searches for stuff that uses them. And in the case of the two pet rock disguises (mentioned on Eleven), it can actually cause links to break. --Quietust 00:10, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
- Hmm, they'd be nice where appropriate, but it's too much fuss and we wanna be consistent. Since, it's too hard with the curly quotes I say we consistently have normal quotes. Also, I noticed you were replacing in-game text with these, with makes them not match the actual in-game text.--Dehstil (t|c) 00:24, 28 August 2006 (CDT)
- I'm having trouble understanding some of the objections. Ugly? Normal "typewriter" quotes are far uglier, to me. More difficult to perform searches? You mean, say, when trying to search for a phrase that includes an apostrophe, the search won't find occurrences that use a curly apostrophe? I didn't realize the search was so... limited. I apologize for the links on Eleven, though; I know better than to put curly quotes into a link, so I don't know why I did in that case. Must have been sleepy or something. -- Old Ned 03:05, 10 September 2006 (CDT)
Strange; the page existed earlier today. It looks like it got deleted, but I don't see it in the deletion log. --Starwed 21:30, 4 July 2007 (CDT)
