*** I agree, and in my humble opinion, some wiki's are not worth having in the system and can be deleted. Of course we have to be a bit careful because sometimes an active wiki is offline for a short period of time, but there are a lot of wiki's that were no more than short lived experiments which are junking up our wiki. --[[Raymond King]] | <small>[[User talk:Rathbone|talk]]</small> 14:37, 30 Jan 2006 (EST)
==Name stylesCamelCase? ==
All the exampleas are CamelCase, but it is not needed in MediaWiki. Is there a policy of using CamelCase for preference? [[User:Robin Patterson|robinp]] 14:14, 7 Feb 2006 (EST)
If a wiki doesn't use CamelCase in it's name, do we name their page here using Camel Case? If so, why? And what about the name of the wiki in the template? Is that always the same as the pagename or can it be different? Are their two different conventions? If not, can't we just code that in the template and lose that field? If they are different, we ought to define how so. [[TedErnst]] | <small>[[User talk:TedErnst|talk]]</small> 23:02, 27 Feb 2006 (EST)
: As far as I understand the small discussion here at WikiIndex, I think that the WikiIndex page name should be like the name of the wiki. The name in the template is something that I have always made the same as the page name, which is the same as the Wiki. Triple redundancy baby! :-) Just like the categories! Could we code it? Not I, you? :-) (if so, can you map the logo_url to the wiki_url?) [[MarkDilley]]
I can take a shot at coding that. Where's that list of codes? I can't find it anywhere. It had tons of triple curly brackets on it. [[TedErnst]] | <small>[[User talk:TedErnst|talk]]</small> 10:11, 2 Mar 2006 (EST)
Also, it's not clear to me what our convention is. It seems we're using CamelCase most of the time, even when the wiki in question doesn't use CamelCase. I don't understand what our convention is. I bring this up not because I care that much, but because you (Mark) pointed out an inconsistency in my work. I'm not even sure I see the inconsistency, but it's something important to you, so let's document how it should be. [[TedErnst]] | <small>[[User talk:TedErnst|talk]]</small> 10:11, 2 Mar 2006 (EST)
