Fancy Boxes

TODO: Describe fancy* boxes, and explain the most fool-proof way of using them. Use this format, exactly:

Minor edits ?

Should we use the checkbox "This is a minor edit" and when should we use it ? I often forget to set this option when I make what I consider a "minor edit", but what is the purpose? Is it somehow useful? -- Pytony (talk) <--- you can hide minor changes... like duncans recent flooding of the logs with category changes on templates should all be minor changes, if not double tisk ;-) Threesixes (talk) 22:41, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

template requests

external resources

I would like a sexy little widget for by the top of the page with links to: tldp, wikipedia, ohloh, cvedetails, github, sourceforge, etc with sexy little icons. It will make our pages feel more interwoven with the larger linux community. ;-) Threesixes (talk) 23:30, 2 October 2014 (UTC)
