Capitalization[edit]

Pleas be more careful to use Wiktionary-style capitalization for nouns, especially when they can be upper or lowercase. Please do not use {{en-proper noun}} for nouns, instead pass the first parameter as a "-" to mark items uncountable, to {{en-noun}}.

That is an interesting resource you are referencing. I don't know what the legal limit is for direct references like that, but I suppose you will continue, so we'd best find out. I imagine we'll be OK if it is only a small percentage of the entries that dictionary has. (Simply using their list of words without permission, of course, would not be OK.)

Connel - Thanks for the welcome and the kind note. No worries, I am not reproducing a large part of the words listed in the dictionary of poker. Instead I am copying entries from wikipedia:List of slang names for poker hands, double checking them against that reference source to avoid copying vanity, etc. My apologies about capitalization and the like, I'm still getting my feet wet. I'm still a bit unclear about when names for starting hands in Texas hold 'em constitute proper nouns or not. Perhaps you could offer some guidance on this issue. --Kzollman 15:17, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for (mostly) allaying my fears about the collection of terms. About proper nouns: if they really are proper nouns, please use the heading ===Proper noun=== instead of ===Noun===. Since most of the terms refer to a type of hand or type of situation, I would have to assume they are nouns, not proper nouns. Most of what you've done looks good though, so keep it up. --Connel MacKenzie 18:45, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
