Thanks for the great input so far! And thanks for the Facebook catch, I am looking into that one.

RE: Surnames template, how exactly does that work?


I like your way better, I've just made a mistake. It's already fixed. :) --Ilya 10:59, 8 August 2007 (PDT)

Here's a suggestion: if two words are just variations on the same name, why don't we have only a single page for it, and have the other variation redirect to it? It will reduce clutter in the main category page. --Ilya 11:11, 8 August 2007 (PDT)
How about we just make sure that all variations are listed on the name's page, in bold? That's what Wikipedia does when two words mean the same thing. I'm making a sample entry for my name, Yakubovich right now. --Ilya 11:11, 8 August 2007 (PDT)
Excellent. By the way, where in Ontario are you from? I live in Toronto, although right now I work for Geni in LA.
My girlfriend lives in Burlington, so I actually visit it quite often. Never been to Ancaster, though. --Ilya 11:21, 8 August 2007 (PDT)

Localization category

Category:Localization is just one big category, separate from the Localization article. Do you think it would be a good idea to make those a single page, and break the categories down by continent? --Ilya 16:27, 9 August 2007 (PDT)

Alright. Would it still make sense to have the Localization category be the same as the Localization article, or should we leave things as they are now? --Ilya 16:32, 9 August 2007 (PDT)

Wiki problems

Yes, I know what's going on and it's actually partially my own fault. I am working on a new style, GeniBook, to replace Wikipedia's MonoBook style. However, due to some SVN error, the file has corrupted the MonoBook style and did not become the default. To change your style to GeniBook, go to 'my preferences' > Skin > and select GeniBook. It's still not perfect (I didn't mean to release it to the live version today), but it looks better.

To elaborate on the problem: you are currently using the GeniBook CSS with the MonoBook PHP file.

Sorry about that.
