Hi, Codeholic, and welcome to LiteratePrograms! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Here are a couple of tips for newcomers:

  • If you haven't done so already, please take a look at how to write an article on LiteratePrograms. The markup is basically the same as that used on Wikipedia, but there are a few differences of which you should be aware.
  • Please try to include a descriptive edit summary with every edit you make.
  • Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your name and the date.

I hope you enjoy editing here! If you need help, post a question on the Public forum, ask Deco (the site creator), or just ask me on my talk page. P.S. Thanks for the Erlang contributions you've recently made. I hope to see more in the future. --Allan McInnes (talk) 21:44, 17 April 2008 (EDT)

[edit] FizzBuzz

Please stop creating a redirect from FizzBuzz to Category:FizzBuzz. Articles in the main namespace should be programs. Categories are a separate namespace, and it can be confusing to have one redirect to the other. Thanks. --Allan McInnes (talk) 01:35, 19 April 2008 (EDT)

Hmmm... As far as I could notice, all articles with programs have a programming language appendix. There were no confusion, if an article without an appendix would redirect to a page with a list of programs of that name in different languages, what categories actually are.

Hello, I agree. A redirect from FizzBuzz to Category:FizzBuzz is a lot less confusing than the current text: There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page title in other pages or edit this page. There might, however be other problems with such redirects, that I am not aware of. Ahy1 16:09, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
I'm mostly interested in making sure that the namespaces remain distinct. However, if the consensus is that redirects like this are preferable to make the category pages easier to find, then I guess I don't have a problem with having them. --Allan McInnes (talk) 20:37, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Thank you. I think it is worth to be documenteds somewhere in guidelines for creating pages.Codeholic 04:32, 21 April 2008 (EDT)
