title[edit]

Now that we use "fork" instead of disamb... here, should this be renamed "law (fork)" or even just "law"? Um, no one will ever link to the current title, so it's useless. However, people might link to "law" meaning several different things... Eh, ok, "law" redirects here. I think we shoudl put this stuff there and vaporize this title. Thoughts? humanUser talk:Human 19:14, 18 October 2007 (EDT)

Should just be called 'Law' shoorly? That's wot 'tis for so people will type it in & be given the opportunity to pick. Links to 'Law' dhould be altered to give the approprate forked page.

It seems to be a list of pages using te 'Disambig' template. Susantalk to me 20:18, 18 October 2007 (EDT)
I added the "fork" template to it so it works for us, nice find, btw. I'll be moving this to "law" as soon as I get a round tuit... humanUser talk:Human 21:27, 23 October 2007 (EDT)

Definition in disambugation?[edit]

Cause i stick a basic definition like "A law is a set of codified rules in a group, community or society" before the disambugation? I've seen it on wikip, but not sure if it's how "it's done" here at RW, per our "laws and mores". (wow, do i need to go home and do something that involved lots of alcohol).--Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 17:45, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
