Discussing style issues

Can I suggest we use the discussion page for the Wikibooks Style Guide to discuss style issues? - Drew, 22 March 2013

Here, by the way, is a page describing how Wikipedia discussion pages are managed, which has some good tips for how we might approach things, such as signing your contribution and indenting to indicate a discussion thread. - Drew, 22 March 2013


On the topic of lists, I'm a fan of commas after a list item that is less than a full sentence (rather than semi-colons). Commas seem friendlier. Have a look at what is in the style guide for bulleted lists and see what you think. - Drew, 22 March 2013


What punctuation should we use for non-roll-over definitions? example: "Interim applications, applications for temporary orders, can be made by filing a Notice of Motion in Form 16." Brenda Rose (talk) 00:38, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Preferred word usage

Practice, practise, licence, license - c = noun, s = verb "I'm licensed to practise law - there's my law licence hanging on the wall at my law practice". Gayla, can you confirm that this is the way we should be using these words? Brenda Rose (talk) 19:08, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Following Gayla's recommendation, let's go with 'c' for noun ("my driver's licence") and 's' for verb ("licensed to drive") Drew Jackson (talk) 17:59, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Nate and Gayla make a compelling case that it's time to go with "internet" (lower case 'i'). We don't say "I heard it on the Radio, but didn't see it in the Newspaper." Drew Jackson (talk) 17:59, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
