Hi !

I agree with your comment on the pepper-disambiguation.

The problem I ran into when trying to fix it is that it appears to me as if *most* of the pages linking to "pepper" really mean pepper as in the group of spices. Which means that:

Linking to black_pepper is wrong. Linking to the disambiguation is however also not correct, it is clear they mean "pepper (spice)" and not for example, "pepper (music)". I wrote about it on the talk-page for pepper.

What do you think about my idea: Write a new page "pepper (spice)" which talks about the group of spices commonly refered to as pepper (or peppers), and include links to the various types of peppers, such as black_pepper and chili_pepper.

Good ? Bad ? Wanna help ?


Excuse me,but i didnt edit that page.You might be mistaken with someone else. November the 13th 2007 5:19 (UTC)

Nehru Institute of Mountaineering is a highly renowned mountaineering institute in India as well as in Asia. Yet there is very little information available about the courses they conduct. My endeavour was to attempt to capture this information thereby making it a fairly reliable source of information for both national and international students planning to do the course here. I believe the article provides a lot of detail which is otherwise not available either on wikipedia or externally. What I have covered is from my personal experience at the institute recently. Hence the request to maintain this information on wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kausis (talkcontribs)
