Article name

We really need to set a policy about these pages; there are "X of Y" pages, and also "Y, X" pages. I care less which we pick than that we are consistent! J. Noel Chiappa 12:52, 12 April 2008 (CDT)

the policy for history articles is "XYZ, history" as in France, history. As I have pointed out repeatedly, 21st century historians strongly dislike "History of XYZ" titles.Richard Jensen 13:51, 12 April 2008 (CDT)
Is that codified somewhere in CZ policy pages (if not, we should)? What about "Quebec, geography"; "Quebec, music", etc, etc? J. Noel Chiappa 14:47, 12 April 2008 (CDT)
it's the editor's policy for history articles. I think your suggestion is excellent, and comes when CZ is youg enough it can easily be applied. Richard Jensen 15:10, 12 April 2008 (CDT)
Well, like I said, I care less what we do than that we are consistent - and that includes across disciplines, when it comes to a basic structuring concept like this. J. Noel Chiappa 15:24, 12 April 2008 (CDT)
I agree and will try to push for it. Richard Jensen 18:03, 12 April 2008 (CDT)

English language variant

Why is an article about Canada labeled as using American English instead of Canadian English? The article currently is written in a mixture of American and Canadian English. Richard Williams 21:35, 23 July 2008 (CDT)

Huh, eh? Howard C. Berkowitz 22:23, 23 July 2008 (CDT)
I have changed the meta-data to indicate this article should use Canadian English. Richard Williams 16:23, 24 July 2008 (CDT)

New France

If there are no objections, I will be splitting off all references to Quebec prior to 1763 to a new article called New France. Richard Williams 22:59, 1 August 2008 (CDT)
