Talk:Onyx Greeting Association

From YPPedia

I think we can happily say that this dosent need any more mass editing. yipee. Hopefully, the only editing from now will be for the members list and history.

Im still working on this, thus the emptyness. Just claiming our space for now ☺ Anyway, I'll get the intro done next, the the history. Please can you leave any notes I place alone for now, just so I know what i need to do. Should be finished by Monday hopefully. -Cron

Page name

I'm not sure about the specific naming guidelines here on the YPPedia, but in general, its best not to name pages by their abbriviation (with notable exceptions of popular file formats -- most people don't know that MP3 stands for "MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3"). Therefore, I suggest moving this page to "Onyx Greeter Association" with a redirect from "OGA". I'm not going to just go ahead and do it without first seeing how others feel, though. --Bendotc 11:52, 17 November 2005 (PST)

If you know how to do that then sure. Anyway, after a lot of us squabbling over what should go in its now finished (for now) Thanks for yer help (to be honest I thought I could go a day without having it tweaked by wikiers) - Cronogenesis

Done. :) By the way, this is Benjideblade. Bendotc's just my account name. --Bendotc 12:07, 17 November 2005 (PST)


I've been active on Wikipedia for a while, so i figured i'd bring some of the article standards from there over. For one, i changed the top-level headers to second level headers ("=" to "=="). However, after looking around on YPPedia, it seems that the use of top level headers multiple times in a page is the standard around here. I like the second level headers better, but then, I also like consistency, so if anyone feels the need, they can switch it back. The other thing is that it's generally good practice to only use the wiki links on the first time a word is used in the article. That is to say, the first time i write "Ratoscurvy" it should be linked, but the second time i write "Ratoscurvy," it shouldn't be. Feel free to disagree or discuss or ask questions. I can also find the guidelines on Wikipedia, if anyone cares for citation on matters of style. --Bendotc 12:02, 17 November 2005 (PST)

Well that be down to smthecool, thinking he could sneek some bits in while I wasnt looking, thanks for yer help anyway :)

I hate to say it mate, but ive just noticed Sm's put the name down wrong, it should have been Onyx Greeting Association :( sorry to cause trouble for yer. Think ive sorted this though.

That wasn't Sm. That was me being dumb. Sorry. --Bendotc 12:11, 17 November 2005 (PST)

lol - no problems

OGA and Greeters

Although the OGA is unofficial, it is supported by a large number of official Greeters.

I don't believe this statement is true. What is meant by "a large number"? Anything less than 25 would seem small to me, and I doubt there are 25 official Greeters supporting the OGA. I'm not trying to pick a fight here, but I'm seriously concerned about the accuracy of the information in the Wiki. --Barrister 13:58, 17 November 2005 (PST)

Taken from chats with a few and theyv'e said weve got a good amount of support. Taken large out though to keep yer happy.


Any ideas? This page has been bugging me for a while. --Featherfin 07:03, 16 October 2006 (PDT)

Nope. I've given it some thought and drew a blank. Of course, the OGA is now moot with the new greeter release. --Barrister 00:54, 18 October 2006 (PDT)
Perhaps History, then. --Featherfin 14:48, 23 October 2006 (PDT)
Yeah, this has kinda died with the release, I was thinking of some ideas for it but they would all be more hassle than they achieve. I have no problem with it going in history. --Cronogenesis 04:53, 12 November 2006 (PST)
