Adjective form[edit]

why is golden comparable and gold no? supposedly they mean the same thing, right? --189.10.66.118 16:26, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

I think it is because golden is a regular adjective, which can be comparable, but gold is more often a noun, and nouns can be used appositively just like adjectives. To me, more golden sounds perfectly fine, but I understand more gold only to mean a larger amount of gold. If someone said, "this ring is more gold than that one," I would correct him, saying "you mean, this ring HAS more gold". —Stephen 17:05, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

"Lua error: not enough memory"[edit]

all over the page, please fix--Sigehelmus (talk) 16:45, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

@Erutuon fixed it last time. Not sure what's eating up all the memory. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 16:55, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
@Sigehelmus, Metaknowledge: I added the page to {{redlink category}} so it doesn't check for redlinks. That at least moves the error to the very bottom of the page. — Eru·tuon 17:22, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
And I converted translations to {{t-simple}}. That defers the problem for a while. — Eru·tuon 17:24, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
