Windows Maps look over[edit]

Hi, I was putting the Microsoft Wikiproject on a few Articles that did not have the Wikiproject Microsoft on the talk page. While looking I found this page that was a very small "stub" and had nothing on there. But thinking about it, "well... it is it's own app... Maybe I should add more." Please review my changes here Windows Maps I have suggestions on the talk page there. Please give an explanation if you undo all my changes, it would be grateful. Hope that helps :) (P.S. there is one screen shot I added from Wikicomons) Dre~ (talk) 04:14, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you! Dre~ (talk) 16:07, 14 October 2016 (UTC) (was resolved)

Date format[edit]

Good day to everybody,

I would like to bring up the issue of MOS:DATEFORMAT when it comes to Microsoft-related articles. We all know that Microsoft is an American company. Hence all of its products are Made in USA, and to that extent, all MSFT product-related articles, as per MOS:DATETIES, should adopt MDY dating conventions. This is true for pages like Microsoft Windows, Xbox and even Microsoft Surface.

However, I have noticed this is not the case for Microsoft Office. When I discussed this with an editor, he or she claims that as opposed to Apple Inc., there is no strong US connection as per WP:DATERET, justifying this with the fact that MSFT has more users in China than the rest of the world combined (over 250 countries). The user even stated that such discussions existed in the past, which I cannot seem to locate.

That being said, I would like to ask the community whether agreeing on adopting spelling and dating conventions with regards to MOS:TIES would be possible.

Thanks in advance for your feedback! <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 14:31, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Windows Me is more common than Windows ME, Microsoft and PCWorld use Me instead of ME[edit]

Microsoft uses the Windows Me spelling. This is the most common spelling and PC World also uses it. Google "windows me" on any search engine and you will see for yourself that Windows Me is more common than Windows ME. Should we use the "Me" capitalisation on our Windows Me article? Should we move the article to Windows Millennium Edition? Maria Kappatou (talk) 05:35, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
