Welcome![edit]

Welcome to the template for Ancient Greek astronomy. It is based on the Template for Greek mathematics, with which there is inevitably going to be some similarity since the subject was a mathematical discipline in the ancient world. Feel free to suggest, or implement, improvements. Singinglemon (talk) 02:35, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Why are some links in the template formatted as bold? When using a template to navigate thru articles, the article's name becomes bold automagically by the MediaWiki software when one is on that article's page. By having links already bolded, it gives the appearance one is viewing the wrong article. If a notation is needed in the template, using italics would be best, and adding a note or key of some sort to explain the designation. — MrDolomite • Talk 16:24, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
The Bold on some of the names is there to highlight the most important people, I copied the way the Greek mathematics template was designed. But you may be right that its a bit confusing, especially since in Greek astronomy there are only a few really famous names. I shall remove the Bold formatting, and see how it looks, it may be better this way. Singinglemon (talk) 18:24, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
That looks good. I wouldn't know an important Greek astronomer from an unimportant one; it's all Greek to me (sorry, bad pun, had to do it :) The WP:GNOME in me checks templates to make sure the correct link is highlighted when navigating to each article. Everyone in the Astronomers section checked out fine, well done. Many times an article will get moved or redirected and while the reader ends up at the correct spot, the link names don't match to the template and thus don't bold as they should. Thanks for all the Greek work, or rather Ευχαριστίες για όλη την ελληνική εργασία. — MrDolomite • Talk 22:06, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
