Should this page (and the links) be changed to 'Adrift authors' now? Richard Otter 01-Sep-2005

  • No, not quite. The basic ADRIFT category should stay, and a new 'Adrift authors' category should be created as a subcategory of both ADRIFT and People. (A similar 'AIF authors' category should also be created. Eventually.) By moving the authors' links into an 'Adrift authors' subcategory, links about the ADRIFT system itself should become more visible on this page. Possibly this might also suggest what new pages ought to be created here, eg: 'ALR file'. -- David Welbourn 01:59, 2 Sep 2005 (Central Daylight Time)

Adrift or ADRIFT?

Some pages and subcategories here use "Adrift" (like "Adrift authors") , others use "ADRIFT" (like "ADRIFT games"). Isn't it a bit inconsistent?

But what would be preferable anyway, ADRIFT or Adrift? According to Categories (style guide), it should be "Adrift", but "ADRIFT" seems more frequently used to me. --Eriorg 13:16, 28 July 2006 (EST)

Campbell Wild, the system's originator, uses ADRIFT, and that's what I've always believed to be the 'correct' nomenclature. I'd personally prefer to converge on that and abandon "Adrift". Roger 13:58, 28 July 2006 (EST)

I agree with Roger. I didn't know any better when I first got involved with the wiki, but we should try to use ADRIFT in all caps from now on. And yes, that will mean fixing those categories that are poorly named. -- David Welbourn 21:13, 29 July 2006 (EST)
