Okay, found the yellow M button and filled out the rest of the checklist, but that still didn't add checklist to the discussion page.

See, the problem is that when you create a new article starting with the metadata page, and press "enter", you no longer have the list of instructions with how to proceed.

Not to mention that four or five sets of things to do before you can type in the article mainspace is just too d*****d hard.

It's great, guys, but still too hard for new users.

Yep, I agree. We've got to get an automating tool. More than that, quite frankly, all this rigamarole needs to be built into the software.

Excellent writing as usual, Aleta. --Larry Sanger 19:00, 2 October 2007 (CDT)

Apologies -- I misread the sentence: I thought it said "with valuable habits" and I wuz trying to figure out what a valuable habit for a tree could possibly be. Like delivering shade in the summer, maybe. Anyway, that's why I changed it. But even so, I'm glad to see that "habits" actually has some specific means for trees. Also, the "which" is indeed correct. Hayford Peirce 14:43, 12 November 2007 (CST)

LOL See, I gave you credit for being more brilliant than that! Still, a good edit came out of it, what, so well done anyway! Aleta Curry 15:06, 12 November 2007 (CST)
