Closing this dead-end wikiproject[edit]

Why don't we just MfD this project? The entire idea of splitting attention from WT:MOS itself to various sub-guidelines' barely-watchlisted talk pages and then this wikiproject page has proven, well, divisive and forking. Wikiprojects are increasingly turning into balkanized anti-MOS WP:FACTIONs, and the nonsense criticism that MOS is itself just some WP:LOCALCONSENSUS not a real consensus is probably being at least in part generated and bolstered by the existence of this page, which implies that the MOS is the product of this moribund wikiproject.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  00:10, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Why not redirect this Talk page to WT:MOS? Curly Turkey (gobble) 02:39, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
SMcCandlish's point is well taken. Given that we've had 12 days with no response shows the project is dead. Time to bury it. An MfD is not the preferred course of action. Easiest COA is to mark as defunct with {{WikiProject status/Defunct}} – S. Rich (talk) 04:28, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

WP:PRON should defer to WP:MOS "easier and more intuitive"[edit]

Editors contributing their esoteric knowledge to WP:PRON have suggested a guideline that makes it impossible for most users to use Wikipedia at the very outset of an article. MOS says, "It helps editors write articles with... clear... , and precise language... The goal is to make using Wikipedia easier and more intuitive". There is a (perhaps unexpected) tension between "clear and precise" and "easier and more intuitive". Please discuss here. FloraWilde (talk) 13:39, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
