Template Name

Personally, I think "Ac" is a bit ambiguous, since it could mean either "Artist" or "Album." Short is nice, but not if it's confusing. --MindlessXD 14:49, 25 January 2006 (PST)

On second though, my title isn't much better. :( Any ideas as to how to make the title short yet meaningful would be appreciated. --MindlessXD 15:06, 26 January 2006 (PST)
First thoughts, templating everything doesn't seem the brightest idea :P. Second, maybe something like AlbumC or AlbC, or such. --Nanenj 15:27, 26 January 2006 (PST)
Hmm... perhaps you're right... using a template to achive categorization is a nice shorthand for those of us who've been here a while, but might confuse new users. --MindlessXD 15:49, 26 January 2006 (PST)
I'm protesting the move of this template and its deletion. I thinks that counter to the nature of a wiki. If its confusing, or if people don't want to use this short hand, then they won't use it. It will eventually die a pathetic death through misuse. but to change it because of a perception that it might be confusing or because you don't like the naming is wrong. --Bailey 07:41, 27 January 2006 (PST)
Go ahead and move it back. I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong. --MindlessXD 08:11, 27 January 2006 (PST)
Its all good. I lodged my protest and thats about it. In the long run I think the ones that you've set up for artist,album,and song is probably for the best. Bailey 08:45, 27 January 2006 (PST)

I don't think anyone deleted anything, just Mindless moved it :P if I blindly deleted something, I'll gladly accept spankings later. --Nanenj 08:16, 27 January 2006 (PST)

showing up in the album categories

Okay, for some reason, this page is showing up [[Category:Albums]] under {. Haven't had the chance to figure out why yet. Bailey 08:02, 27 January 2006 (PST)

This will be fixed in MediaWiki 1.6 with the implementation of the <includeonly> tag. --MindlessXD 08:09, 27 January 2006 (PST)
