Hello. When you split the "binary tree" article, you removed all the references and a fair amount of the content. The definitions, for instance, took a few years to settle. I would suggest that splits should start by making sure all the original content is somewhere, and then go with rewriting. That way the text is in the history of the new articles, too.

Your recent edits[edit]

Information.svg Hello. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. You could also click on the signature button Insert-signature.png or Button sig.png located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your username or IP address and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when they said it. Thank you. --SineBot (talk) 21:42, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

copy-editing conventions[edit]


Please notice my recent edits to history of type theory. In particular

  • In ranges of years and ranges of pages and the like, one uses an en-dash rather than a hyphen, thus
right: 1948–1973
wrong: 1948-1973
right: pages 304–421
wrong: pages 304-421
  • Likewise in things like Haskell–Curry, where the dash means "and", one uses an en-dash rather than a hyphen.
  • Use lower-case initials in section headings except that the first letter in the heading is capital (unless there's some special reason to use lower case) and things like people's names, etc. bear a capital initial.

These things are codified in WP:MOS. Michael Hardy (talk) 20:07, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
