The "copy edit" tag[edit]

I do agree with the usefulness of copy editing. Having said that, I strongly disagree with the "information noise" created by the "copy edit" tag. In my opinion it is obvious that the page (as many other pages) "may require copy editing". It is a general Wikipedia policy to encourage such activities. Whether that should be explicitly stated in the article making unnecessary noise is a different question, however. I, as a reader am not interested in reading it in the article for indefinite time, since it is actually unrelated to the article subject. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 10:32, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

I think some of the parts that can be rewritten; primarily because the article is too big for a language not as popular as others. "History" and "Implementation" can be merged. "Ease of Use", "Syntax" and "Semantics" can be merged. Top Section can be thinned, the content then placed into a new "Description" section. leaflord 06:26, 4 December 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leaflord (talkcontribs)
"I think some of the parts that can be rewritten;" - and how exactly is that related to the fact that the tag is just unnecessary noise? Ladislav Mecir (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 15:09, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

REBOLRebol – Since the open sourcing, the community consensus has been to not capitalize the language name. (Similar to what happened with LISP, so I followed the precedent set in that article). I've provided a citation from the language creator's blog and noted that he now writes it as "Rebol" as well. His company, however, is still called "REBOL Technologies". There exists a redirect page for "Rebol" already, so this move cannot be done without administrator assistance. Metaeducation (talk) 17:15, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, let's see this move happen soon. The change in capitalization has been talked about for quite a while and it would be useful to put a semblance of authority on the matter as implied by this article. Wikiwikiwu (talk)
