Switching to bullets to discussions[edit]

Please do not switch discussions from : to * as you did in diff. The most common discussion indentation is :, even though people sometimes use *. Switching a whole discussion from : to * is not a good idea. --Dan Polansky (talk) 08:32, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

I do find unbulleted indentations for threaded conversations to be confusing and annoying. Someone complained on Wikipedia recently about the same thing, so I will try to grind my teeth and ignore it :-/ . Nicole Sharp (talk) 08:43, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Thank you. Using : is a very widespread practice. You are perfectly free to post your posts as *, as some do, but you should not change other people's posts. For instance, I just used :* in the present post to show how to make a bulleted response to a : post. --Dan Polansky (talk) 10:04, 24 March 2018 (UTC)
