Sickbay sick berth

This is something direct from John's lexicon project from the old wiki. I'm not sure why he had both, but left it that way so as not to make his reloading more difficult. --LadyShelley 19:17, 14 July 2007 (BST)

I had not thought of that, but it wasn't even displaying as a redlink so I fixed it to do that. Aquinas 19:33, 14 July 2007 (BST)


Hey Adam, thanks for the nice welcome, and for adding to my entry. I have to re-read the books before I'll be comfortable adding anything about the plots, so that's very helpful! --Kimmysanders 10:19, 3 October 2007 (BST)

Sort key?

Adam what is this 'sort key' thing popping up in the recent changes for pages? What does it do? --LadyShelley 02:59, 2 May 2008 (BST)

Trying to think of a word for it! Categories list according to the first letter of the article name. That is fine for Marlin spike of Cannon ball. However, for people's names, do we want P-reserved K-illick listed under P or K? I decided that names should be listed under the surname initial not the first name initial so Thomas P-ullings is listed with Sam P-anda. Of course Sidney Smith didn't need fixing :-). This is done by simply adding the name order to the Category name template, see [[Category:Category name'''|Lastname, Firstname''']]

Hi Adam:
I am new here. I have added three pages: sloop, capstan, and longitude. I have noticed on some existing pages that there are categories listed at the end of the article. How do I include such categories to the pages I have added? I would also appriciate any feed back on the pages I have created. I would like some confirmation that I am on the right track before I do too much more.

Bosun, your duty awaits.

I fear your attention may be needed at User talk:LauraBrenneman‎. There's likely a more appropriate way for me to deal with the issue, but I know it not.Czrisher 23:57, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
