Why is the link rouge admins to WP:ROUGE and why is it rouge instead of rogue? RJFJR (talk) 20:43, 29 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

The misspelling is an element of internet subculture (AFAIK) and is relatively common parlance here on Wikipedia. The link points to WP:ROUGE because I didn't know what title the page was at when I added it :) - Jarry1250 [Weasel? Discuss.] 21:15, 29 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Sure, I GET it, but this dopiness should not be allowed to infest the Signpost. There are newbies that look at it, and relatively serious people, too. Yours, GeorgeLouis (talk) 07:17, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Understanding jargon is an important part of community building. That said, point noted. - Jarry1250 [Weasel? Discuss.] 10:22, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
I'm with GeorgeLouis here. That page has an "Uncyclopedia" look and feel. It's very unprofessional. Jason Quinn (talk) 14:42, 5 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Abuse filter introduced...

There is an unbalanced closing parenthesis in the opening paragraph. ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:59, 30 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Triple Crown

"The award level was newly created for the occasion" sounded odd, so I checked and the wording here isn't quite clear- the Ultimate Triple Crown award used to be at 100 articles, but when Tony got there they made up a new 100-level award and pushed the Ultimate one out to 250 so that there would still be a level no one had reached, they didn't just make up a new award for Tony. --PresN 16:35, 30 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
