Rant about finding the policy
I agree with your rant about that at WP:MOSNUM!
And you tend to get a reply saying it's WP:x or WP:y. Well thank you but could I actually FIND it? Like even if I read it six months ago and know in some corner of my brain it's there somewhere, it seems that the aim of the search system is only to let you find something if you already know where it is. This is a continual bind with me and I rant about it too!
I think what some editors forget, is that when others like me are in the middle of editing an article we are not primarily concerned with editing the manual of style. We are editing an ARTICLE and just trying to FIND something in there. If we're distracted from editing the article by jumping through hoops for finding this or that, it actually probably will make the article not as good as it could have been, because of our distraction and frustration.
- I guess you can say that, though the issue is still unresolved. Is there a policy, hard and fixed or soft and malleable? I share your bind about finding the relevant WP. Don’t see how that one can easily be resolved, though, findability is a challenge across the web (even after Google :). Wameya (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
