Hi, everyone. Reddit's [https://www.reddit.com/r/vexillology/ Vexillology forum] is a source of a huge number of flag redesigns. Every so often I search through to find new ones that aren't here yet. Because it's Reddit, there are a fair number of designers with some very, well, immature user names. I see this wiki as a very useful resource for people interested in alternatives to the state flags, and I don't know if displaying a file called "Arizona flag by turtlefucker472" would detract from that purpose. Are we comfortable with vulgar usernames? Should we censor such names with dashes? I just wanted to ask before I uploaded some of Mr. 472's flags and received a complaint.

:"turtlef-cker" or other censored versions would only imply that the displayed variation is the actual username, so I'd lean towards just using the actual name. Maybe PM Turtlefucker at Reddit for their input? [[User:HansLN|Hans]] ([[User talk:HansLN|talk]]) 18:00, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

::The question is more about our standards on this wiki. If our editors had a problem with rude sounding user names, I would want to discuss it before posting. [[User:Benkarnell|Benkarnell]] ([[User talk:Benkarnell|talk]]) 17:28, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Revision as of 17:28, August 6, 2016

This is the general discussion page for the wiki! New founders should leave a nice welcome message and encourage new visitors and editors to leave a note to get the conversation started.


The changes look great!

I'm not sure who exactly redesigned the wiki's main appearance, but it's a great job! Benkarnell (talk) 03:59, July 29, 2015 (UTC)

Probably me, thanks. You can see exactly who changed a page and when at each page's history (see it for the main page). Hans (talk) 09:05, July 30, 2015 (UTC)
