Order of English/French welcome

I wondered whether or not it was fair that English was given first. Practically speaking, most visitors will be Anglophones. However, to make sure each official language got a fair shake, I tossed a coin to see which came first, which second. It was 'heads it stays' (english), 'tails it changes' (french). It came up tails. The end. Btrower (talk) 16:06, 24 March 2015 (EDT)

I placed the English above the French because the English was shorter and appeared better when both were center justified. TraderEddy (talk) 14:33, 16 January 2016 (EST)

Added Table

Table below was added to front page so that people could quickly review changes. This is something that I will often add to a mediawiki wiki that is not active enough for recent changes to give a good view as-is. Btrower (talk) 22:23, 12 March 2015 (EDT)

My last 100+ edits

I've recently done several edits on the Wikia. I wanted to use this space to talk about what I have done. I have created the categories [[Category:Delete]] and [[Category:Images]].

The first is to propose pages for deletion. Under [[Category:Delete]] I have place several of the pages for foreign Pirate Parties. As nice as it would be to create, update, and maintain all of those pages this wikia is for the Canadian Pirate Party and we should keep it as focused as possible. Linking those articles to Wikipedia proper or to their respective home pages seems enough to me.

The second is to consoldate all the images on the wiki; all future images uploaded should include the [[Category:Images]] tag.

Coming from Wikipedia, standard capitalization holds that the first word is capitalized, while the rest, unless it is a proper noun, is lower case. However, most of the article heads for wiki.pirateparty.ca are all or mostly capitalized. I would like to open a discussion for official formating.

I have also created getting started and irc to help people join the environment. Any comments or critiques on my edits would be appreciated. TraderEddy (talk) 14:33, 16 January 2016 (EST)

User:Roderick.lim gave me admin status. I have gone through and begun deleting the international Pirate Party pages, as for the most part those pages generate either "500 Internal Server Error" or "504 Gateway Time-out". During the rare moments I am able to connect to them, I have blanked the page to expedite deletion. TraderEddy (talk) 09:02, 2 February 2016 (EST)
