Debate:Incogman vs. Interpreted & others is listed here, but if you try following the link, you end up at Debate:Incogman vs. Interpreted. Because "Interpreted & others" doesn't even exist as a redirect, the same page is effectively listed twice here. Anyone know how to fix it? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:04, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Yup, it's that &: wiki don't like 'em. I've done similar & lost things in the void. I suspect it'll take oversight to sort (tmt/linus). SusanMiouw 14:11, 8 February 2008 (EST)
Should we ask them on their talk pages or wait for them to notice this page? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:14, 8 February 2008 (EST)
Trying something ... Ask tmt if you want. SusanMiouw 14:24, 8 February 2008 (EST)
URL encode it. I'll do so. --Linus(plot evil tech) 14:34, 8 February 2008 (EST)
Is there something at Debate:Incogman vs. Interpreted & others that doesn't exist at Debate:Incogman vs. Interpreted? --Linus(plot evil tech) 14:39, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Can you just change & to and SusanMiouw 14:47, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Sure. --Linus(plot evil tech) 15:28, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Hey, any chance I could get Debate:Why a Progressive Tax? added to the Category:Debates page? Cannot figure out how to do it. I'm certain I probably screwed up somewhere... BlueSprite 15:39, 2 December 2008 (EST)

I think if you add the debate template {{debate}} to it, it will be done automatically. Or, you can put [[category:debates]] at the bottom of the page.

Jamie Glazov's United in Hate[edit]

I saw this book at my local Barnes & Nobel.

http://www.amazon.com/United-Hate-Romance-Tyranny-Terror/dp/1935071602

And I felt that was quite claim to make on the front cover of his book. So I as you folks here, does his argument hold any water? — Unsigned, by: 24.0.105.204 / talk / contribs June 27 2009

Any one want share their two cents here?

Well, the book looks like utter trash to me. But this is a strange talk page to bring it up on... The saloon bar might be a better place to get a discussion started (link in "community" box to the left). ħumanUser talk:Human 20:47, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. I'm still trying to get the hang of this.

No problem. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:06, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

deceitful displaytitle[edit]

No, I don't think it is needed. We don't do it with the other category portals, do we? I know it confused me once... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:13, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

date a debate stared[edit]

Is there some way of seeing at glance when any of these debates were started? I fee like sticking my oar in a few of em but they all seemed to have ended sometime ago--AMassiveGay (talk) 16:51, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Check the history/"Fossil Record" of the individual debate. MDB (talk) 16:59, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, no—not as things are. Displaying the date of their last edit would be a good idea, though. By the way, debates don't "end" here—you can restart them whenever you want. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:01, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
