Dear Buback,

Welcome to RepRap.

I see you've done a lot of wiki-gnoming improvements recently (Wiki:WikiGnome). Thank you!

I've been editing some other wiki so long that (a) I feel comfortable jumping in and editing this wiki (good), and (b) I learned to do things a certain way on that other wiki, filled with Lisp programmers and mathematicians, and I keep making the unwarranted assumption that I should continue doing things the same way here (not so good).

In particular, when I suspect it would be good to merge two pages together, I'm used to pasting a "merge to" template on the proposed source page[1] and also a "merge from" template on the proposed destination page[2]. I see that you are used to doing things differently.[3] Is there a good reason to do things one way or the other on the RepRap wiki? --DavidCary 23:32, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

OK, I've created template: merge from as you suggested on my talk page. Does it look OK at category:DriveTrains? --DavidCary 02:21, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

OK, great. Thank you. --DavidCary 19:22, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

template magic

On Template talk:Development, you suggested some simple-sounding improvements. I've figured out something that gets pretty close to what you wanted -- see that talk page for details. --DavidCary 02:28, 2 December 2010 (UTC)
