POV section template Privacy

I removed the pov-section template as there was no corresponding discussion on the talk page as to what was disputed. If the person(s) who added the template feels the issues persist, please re-add the template and include a discussion on the talk page Zero sharp 00:33, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

So far this section is small. I can't see why we need to split it off. - JustinWick 19:16, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

I've now incorporated it into the Features section, and renamed it to Applications. Mambo Jambo 20:52, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Merge Features of Gmail

I think Features of Gmail should be merged into the main Gmail article. I don't think there should be a separate article, because Gmail's features are what makes the article. There is some potentially good content to use and make more concise. Besides, there is still a section for Features, and it was never summarises properly, so we may as well bring it back in.

SUPPORT the merge. the features are what makes it gmail. If other things might have to move to keep it from becoming too large, the features should be a key point in the article — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Martijn Hoekstra (talkcontribs) 02:00, 5 January 2007 (UTC).
Support the merge. Features of Gmail definitely belongs in the Gmail article. -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  02:56, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

The merge is now complete, thanks for the support. Feel free to clean anything up, but it doesn't seem to be too bad. Mambo Jambo 20:54, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

2.8 Or Not 2.8, That is the Question

Is there any way this be sorted out once and for all? Would it be against style guidelines to say "approximately 2.8GB"? "GiB" is such an unknown term and it's not user-friendly solution - I don't think it should be kept that way. Mambo Jambo 20:57, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

What about "over 2800 MB, that is slightly less then 2.8 GiB "? It is correct, and clear to me. However, will it be clear to everybody?Martijn Hoekstra 23:10, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
I say that's good, except for a little issue. How about "...over 2,800 MB (slightly less than 2.8 GiB) of..."? -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  00:28, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Mail Fetcher

I'm planning to add a section under "Features" detailing the in-progress Mail Fetcher addition. If anyone objects or has an opinion, please let me know. I'll do the writing some time in the next few days. -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  23:54, 28 January 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, sure, go ahead. Put it in the Addresses section, under Features. Mambo Jambo 20:51, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Will do. I'm working on what to write now. -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  00:17, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
Added. I edited some other things in that section, too. -- Tuvok^Talk|Desk|Contribs  00:57, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
