You need an account with the right privilege to be able to do it of course.

And the E&E keyboard always copied from the Focus FK-2001 clone with difference alps clone switches.That's what I done on my researching and picture.(I have lots stuff but not this time to show more details all I found)I have 5 difference switch of E&E keyboard. It takes me time to clean, take shot and do the details.

- webwit (Thu, 23 Jun 2016 22:07:07 +0200) There is no category rename in mediawiki, but there is a ReplaceText page for wiki admin.So step 1 is you create "Category:Rubber dome switches"Step 2 is to make a redirect from "Category:Robber domes" to "Category:Robber dome switches". Don't delete the old category, people might have it in bookmarks, and search engines need to pick up the redirect.Step 3 is to ask a wiki admin to replace "Category:Robber domes" and "Category:Robber_domes" to "Category:Robber dome switches" in all pages. The replace tool first will show all matching pages, so the admin can check if text will still flow and such after replacement.
- seebart (Thu, 23 Jun 2016 21:50:57 +0200) Good point Findecanor. I'm pretty sure only "wiki admins" can rename categories. Ask matt3o. Also this will involve a lot of renaming and moving stuff!
