It's a bit awkward to have an article page, even if it's just a WIP, in the Talk: hierarchy (or whatever MediaWiki calls it). If you don't want this page to be an official "Inform 7 Reference Manual" page because you'd like to work on it on your own, may I suggest moving the page to "User:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual", for example, then discussion, if any, can be on "User talk:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual".

:OK. I don't want to discourage others from editing it, so I've moved the outline to the main article page as a table of contents. I had put it here instead because I didn't think it was going to be part of the actual manual, but if we put each chapter/section on its own page, then I guess a TOC page like this will still be necessary. --[[User:Vaporware|Vaporware]] 00:01, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Discussion about Talk:Inform 7 Reference Manual

It's a bit awkward to have an article page, even if it's just a WIP, in the Talk: hierarchy (or whatever MediaWiki calls it). If you don't want this page to be an official "Inform 7 Reference Manual" page because you'd like to work on it on your own, may I suggest moving the page to "User:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual", for example, then discussion, if any, can be on "User talk:Vaporware/Inform 7 Reference Manual". Thanks. -- David Welbourn 22:57, 15 October 2010 (UTC)
