In the first instance I have encountered (that I can recall) in many years, it appears that someone is following this guide to manually [[User:Example|Example]] plus signing their messages. I wonder if we should update this page to simply show the automatic signing? Since in reality, best practice is not to simply sign with a name without a timestamp, so we should encourage everyone to use ~~~~... Thoughts? Tiggerjay (talk) 16:45, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
The formatting on this article is beautiful, but the organization of it was kind of confusing. Overall the Article is really good and helpful but a lot of the sections that were added were added in a way that did not seem cohesive to the article as a whole. For example one section would talk about volunteering and then three actions down it would bring it up again in an entirely different section. I think it would be a good idea to move those sections together so they're next to each other. Also the first definition could use a bit more explanation so that we can get more of an overview of what we'er about to read before we dive into the rest of the article. The article is very good looking and very informative besides a few organizing things its near perfect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CountChocula1738 (talk • contribs) 22:30, 20 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi there. My problem is that my article's headline doesn't change and it doesn't appear on google search. I have written this newly, and it's about a writer and artist, but I cannot change the main headline into the name of the writer I've written about. What should I do? Thanks in advance — Preceding unsigned comment added by Azar Rafiee (talk • contribs) 07:32, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Azar Rafiee What article is it? Can you add a link to it? You can move the page to a new name possibly. NikolaiHo 03:42, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Editing talk pages
I've seen talk pages with people talking about the same thing in different sections, especially on talk pages that are very long. Is there any guidance on editing a talk page and moving things around? I've been hesitant to change anything, since it's often a history of decisions that were made. In a few cases, editors seem pretty sensitive to changes of any kind on the article page, and I didn't want to rile anybody up by moving things around in the talk page.

You could consider archiving the page. It's usually best not to move things around too much, because as you say it's a history. It's usually better to just add a comment linking to the next relevant section, if appropriate. The relevant guideline (which in general discourages too much editing) is WP:TPO. -- zzuuzz(talk) 18:36, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
