Hiding main page title Edit

The instructions for hiding the main page title are apparently outdated and does not work -User452 23:19, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

Thread:626256 I'm not sure if this info should go on the help page because it's Monobook specific. --Jade RavenMEMORYTHOUGHT 23:28, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

diction and semantic PoV conflict Edit

Ozuzanna reverts my completely good edits which consider a word's etýmon over its vernacular, especially when they oppose. Alysdexia (talk) 01:13, November 16, 2014 (UTC)

If you feel the one word changing edit is mandatory in your point of view, then go ahead and revert my revert. Personally I have better things to do than argue near-synonyms, especially just one word edits. –Ozuzanna (wall)  14:21, November 16, 2014 (UTC)
I like nice as it was or is, but if you prefer a formal style using good ignore my unsubstantiated DEnglish gut. And explain your convoluted reasons here, where folks will find it if they care in some years. –Dunnoob (talk) 04:50, November 17, 2014 (UTC)
I have no problem with "nice" either - the only reason given is its not-so-friendly etymology. However, over the centuries, that negative connotation has lost, and if we're whitewashing the use of words, this is hardly the worst offender. But as Ozu said, if you want it so badly, it's not worth the trouble. --Tupka217 08:26, November 17, 2014 (UTC)

I have reverted the page back to Alysdexia's edit. –Ozuzanna (wall)  18:15, November 21, 2014 (UTC)
