sorry guys. this is an open forum which discusses an open wiki.

Because even if you lied about the images, the source supports y...

Is there any value in having copypasta pages that duplicate Google Patents? It's an awful lot of work replicating so many patents, and unless someone is prepared to keep at it, day and night for months on end, it seems like it's best to just refer to Google Patents or some other reliable patent sou...

right. most citations in that book are from wikipedia. it seems to me that at five hundred plus pages in a final printed form, and at twenty nine dollars and fifty cents, is either because shaik is stupid and wanted to make a quick buck, or has edited the articles in question in wikipedia.

not a thirteen yr old though. his name is samee shaik from pakistan, trainee at comstar karachi. i guess at five hundred twelve pages with most referenced materials from wikipedia, is somewhat reckless to say the least.

Don't jump too hastily to the conclusion that something which appears wrong, really is wrong. It may not be. Look who's talking. Ha! You make my day! It's wrong or it's not.

Is there a way to get it to list pages that are both orphaned AND uncategorised? Soarer, I don't know about that. And it doesn't matter either way. I fixed two orphaned pages. More than that, but let's focus on The Kinesis Evolution and the Kinesis Maxim. So those two pages were no longer orphans. ...

WRT Futaba, you're confused. I did not like what you'd done to the Futaba linear switch page, but I left your change alone. (The only change I made was to correct the parts-per-switch comment you added, when I found a part that I'd missed.) Who said otherwise? I already said that "Luckily there was...

Besides, if the category listed four keyboards, and I added two (so the orphaned pages are no longer orphaned), why not add the other two keyboards, since it will not affect the categories for the keyboards...

forget it, this is a circular argument. I sound like a broken record.

Icarium. It makes no difference. Since according to Daniel, my edits were "ill-conceived" and I pretty much messed up the page for the Futaba switch.

"Ill conceived edits". Gracias! For some reason I was thinking the same of you when you decided to undid what I edited. If you see the last edits I did "ill-conceived", I cared less whether those edits were actually yours or mine. If you see my edits, I was concerned of the orphaned pages that were ...

You just reverted what I did. Even though you could have added the two Kinesis keyboards to the product's section. But no.

Funny thing is I was trying to fix something that was long overdue. But it's okay.

You could argue that it would be better if the category could be inlined, i.e. the category entries automatically transcluded onto the page (so it would resemble a category page, essentially, without being in the Category: namespace). This may be possible, never tried. I never considered it that bi...

Bottom line is that the products' section is followed by a list of products. But the list of products is actually empty, because there are no products to list, only after the list is linked to another list, then there is a product list.

Anyway. Have a good one.

and then a side by side view of both key caps (model m and apple) wouldn't hurt either. perhaps the caps are to be blamed for my refusal to use model m.
