Typographic vs ASCII punctuation in policies
Voting on: Whether to use typographic or ASCII punctuation in policy pages such as WT:CFI and WT:ELE. This includes using typographic apostrophes ( ’ ) vs ASCII apostrophes ( ' ), typographic quotation marks ( ‘ ’ ) vs ASCII apostrophes ( ' ' ), and typographic quotation marks ( “ ” ) vs ASCII quotation marks ( " " ). This vote does not concern en dashes ( – ), em dashes ( — ), hyphens ( - ), and doubled hyphens ( -- ).
I'm not sure what "Voting on: Whether to use typographic or ASCII punctuation in policy pages" means, but I prefer old-fashioned 7-bit quotation marks and apostrophes over the other style, which is what this section indicates I'm choosing.—msh210℠ (talk) 03:45, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Support Additionally although it's far less frequent these days some computers still don't support the typographic ones. Not to mention, I prefer the old-fashioned ones too. --Neskaya … gawonisgv? 22:18, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
You rocking an abacus? Incidentally, it’s the dumb quotes that are new-fangled. They were invented in the nineteenth century to save typewriter keys. —MichaelZ. 2013-03-07 23:06 z
Support I guess. There’s a substantial difference between “whether to use” and “I prefer,” and it’s unclear what the result of this vote means. I certainly wouldn’t support this if it means anyone is prevented from making edits with only the characters available on their keyboard. —MichaelZ. 2013-02-24 17:47 z
