How to have a discussion in a wiki

Hey Neovo! =) I saw your restructuring of the Q&A page and wanted to suggest to do it in the way like it is done at Wikipedia. The way you've done it, there is no chance to really discuss something 'cause there is no connection between the posting of person A and person B while everyone got an own chapter. If there are more people discussing on different topics it might become a mess. So how is it done at Wikipedia? Each topic got a section. If you want to answer to a persons posting you can scroll behind the posting, hit enter to start a new line and begin it with a colon. It will be displayed as an intended line then. After finishing the post, one can sign it with four tildes ~~~~. It will automatically turn into the username (with profile link) and a timestamp, so everyone knows who wrote and when. That way, the discussion is almost like in a forum (but non-linear). These are just suggestions. I don't wanna step on your foot or something. =) Greetings, Zai Lynch 15:47, 17 January 2008 (PST)

*answer by Neovo*
Don't worry =) Took me some time as well to figure it out. You'll get used to it very quick. Just edited the page and will ask the other two if they're fine with the way their contributions are displayed yet. Friendly greetings, --Zai Lynch 02:16, 18 January 2008 (PST)

Lingiust <-> Linguist

Heya Neovo =) I just browsed the wiki categories and found one of yours named Category:SL_Mentor_Lingiust which seems to be a typo while it might be Category:SL_Mentor_Linguists. You might add this one to your profile instead? I suggested the first one for deletion. If it is not a typo but a mistake of mine, please remove the {{delete|...}}-template again. Greetings and have a nice day =) --Zai Lynch 06:36, 29 March 2008 (PDT)
