Thanks for the pointer. I'm not exactly sure what the official convention is about categories. Everything's a mess here, and I thought merging articles with categories would be a time-saver. Oh well. Lucidish 01:58, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

template names[edit]

You might wish to name your templates with initial lowercase letter. People are more used to typing them that way.​—msh210 (talk) 17:38, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. Initial capital is a bad habit from wikipedia...
When ready I might change them ( Template:Picturedictionary, Template:Picturedictionaryimage, Template:Picturedictionarylabel )
I also wanted to make abreviations later, like Template:picdic, Template:picdicimg, Template:picdiclabel. How does that sound to you? HenkvD 17:49, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good. Or just move the template to the shorter name. The only real restrictions (that I can think of) that we have on a template name is that it should not be two or three lowercase letters, nor start with two or three letters followed by a hyphen, nor start with new followed by a space (since those are used for other things. There may be other conventional prefixes used for other things also, but I can't think of any offhand).​—msh210 (talk) 17:53, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
OK, Yes check.svg Done HenkvD 05:32, 6 July 2010 (UTC)


I have trimmed the Picture Dictionary additions to tree. There is no raionale for selecting hyponyms to illustrate. Besides which, some of the images did not match the purported names, and there are many thousands of kinds of trees. Some of your selections are unknown in some English-speaking countries, and other common trees were moitted. Inserting a fair an equitable selection of hyponyms for "tree" would put far too much information into the entry, and is really the subject of an encyclopedia. The parts could be improved (twig, bud), but the hyponyms should not be included.

Also, as I've commented elsewhere, why does the "color" image have violet displayed in pink/lilac instead of violet? Violet is a very dark hue. --EncycloPetey 17:53, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments. I agree both hyponyms and meronyms could be too much. Feel free to add twig and bud...
