An editing tip

Hi, I noticed your edits in the ladder article. Now in general there are fine, but when you link to an article you don't have to bother if the first letter is uppercase or not ([[Kerbal]] and [[kerbal]] will both link to the same page, but the first is shown with an uppercase K). Also you don't have to bother with the plural ending as the rest of the word is usually linked too. So for example [[Kerbal]]s is the same as [[Kerbal|Kerbals]] but with a shorter text and increased readability. Now Dglesseus already fixed that so I only wanted to inform you. And btw the article kerbonaut already exists (as you see it was fixed). — xZise [talk] 15:14, 28 August 2013 (CDT)

Thanks, I didn't realize it would do that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Haveblue (talkcontribs)

Is there a place where all these little tips and features are listed? --Haveblue (talk) 15:07, 29 August 2013 (CDT)
Wait, the editing help is still empty? Let's fix that. --dgelessus (talk · contribs) 16:22, 29 August 2013 (CDT)

Link to RTG in rover

Hi, before this goes back and forth: I removed the text link (so the part is directly) available to avoid confusion. Currently there is only one RTG available, so saying RTG and linking to the only RTG makes sense, but in the future there might be additional RTGs. So you click on RTG in that article but only land on one specific RTG. So there are basically two solutions:

  • Either link to RTG when the link text is RTG (so in the future you only have to update the RTG article but not the articles linking to it)
  • Either link the part with the link text being the part's name (or a abbreviation e.g. PB-NUK)

Now I may be a little picky about it, but I often saw links like “RCS fuel tanks“ and this link only got you to one tank. And we have now already five different tanks. I'm creating a redirect from RTG to PB-NUK and change the link target to RTG. So when somebody click on RTG the person gets redirected to the PB-NUK first, but as soon as there are additional RTGs available, the RTG then is an own article or something like that. — xZise [talk] 03:03, 24 September 2013 (CDT)

Thanks, that does make more sense and I had no intention of contesting it. --Haveblue (talk) 14:11, 24 September 2013 (CDT)
