Dear Swen-san,

Thank you for telling me that I have mistakenly violated the structure rule. Because I do not know how to delete the wrong page, plese delete it if you can.

Dear Fujimaki-san,
a wiki allows to move pages (that means, a page gets a new name). So a deletion is not necessary. If I see, that a page got a problematic name, I will correct this automatically. Don't hesitate to ask me if you have questions (or ideas).
Best regards,

category+ real

I deleted the page 'real' because the page contained only a redirect. I couldn't see any advantage of the new page. 
If you have an explanation please let me know. 
By the way, what do you want to do with the category 'pascal'?

I tried real and it gave me the edit new page thingy. As real now still seems to redirect to Real this may have been a temp glitch.

As to a the category 'pascal' it is more that I'm keen on categories in general as a way of helping users find what's available. There is quite a number of pages that are more about Pascal in general rather than fpc so that seemed a good place to start. Hence I see it as a not-specifically-Lazarus-or-fpc-cat.

Aha now I see. If you type in real you get redirected to Real but a link real will not redirect wihout a redirect page. Could you restore it please? Dejvid 20:19, 9 March 2007 (CET)

If I look on the pages, where you inserted the category keyword, I see that the category is shown in red (that means, that there is no content behind it). Thats why I asked, if you want to do something special with the category. From my point we don't need this category. This wiki is about Lazarus and Free Pascal. Pascal is always inside there.
Regarding the 'real' page it's maybe the better solution to move the whole page from 'Real' to 'real'. So we wouldn't need a redirect. I'm not sure what other users think about this. --Swen 23:27, 9 March 2007 (CET)

If you click on the category you will still get all the pages in the category. While it is true that this wiki is specifically about Lazarus and not Pascal in general, there are a number of pages that are not really fpc-Laz specific and need a cat. True, this not the most essential cat but I'm quite new to Lazarus so I don't have the confidence to decide on the most apropriate cats for those pages. Ultimately, IMO, every page should be in at least one cat.

As to making real the page, surely you will still need a redirect on the Real page? Dejvid 14:59, 10 March 2007 (CET)

I have moved the page to 'real' and I also updated the links to this page. --Swen 13:45, 11 March 2007 (CET)
