Clear wiki titles

Welcome to UUwiki, Art! And thanks for your recent article edits

Some of the titles of the new articles can lead to confusion. E.g. Census of UU congregations seems intended to be specific to those using Policy Based Governance, but folks who run across it won't typically notice it. That is even more clear with the new Ideas page and Creating the executive team. I'd suggest that specialized pages like that be subpages of the main topic (see Sand_box#Subpage, or named in an unambiguous way (but short, if possible). Wikipedia has lots of good ideas for naming articles. --NealMcB 21:20, 11 August 2007 (CDT)
