According to Special:Popularpages, the various pages in the Demonstration section are the most visited parts of the wiki, so I moved that section to the top of the main page. --Andrel 09:19, 26 April 2006 (PDT)

Work in Progress

It's not clear on first view (to me at least) that Main Page#Work in Progress is a link to Work In Progress (as none of the other section headings are). Possibly it should be a normal heading with the link in a short text below (à la Main Page#Other software).

You are free to fix that. It's a wiki after all -- Jmspeex 19:22, 1 February 2006 (PST)

Done (just didn't want to trample all over the front page) -- Imalone 04:33, 2 February 2006 (PST)


Lock This Page

On all/most other wikis the Main Page is locked so only admins can edit it. Due to the amount of vandalism, I think the Main Page should be locked and all changes discussed here. --SonicChao 05:11, 27 August 2006 (PDT)

Paranoia / cdparanoia

Why is there no listing under software of paranoia or cdparanoia? Also, there is no listing on the main xiph.org page. Is that software acknowlegded? --WhiteDragon 19:52, 9 September 2006 (PDT)

Suggestion :-O

First I want to congratulate you on the wonderful work being done. Thank you very much :-) Please allow anonymous edits (like wikipedia does) b'caus i'm too lazy to login :-)

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume the ton of hidden links I just culled has nothing to do with you... I can't speak for the people running Xiph but requiring a login reduces some of the flood of spam that shows up here, and Wikipedia has many more resources available to deal with it than this wiki does.

Proposal for a developer section

As more developers start to "get it" about how ultra cool Ogg / Vorbis / Theora / etc is, wouldn't it be great to have a wiki section devoted to helping these budding programmers along? eg: i've written some nice code i'd be happy to share. Could contain a programming FAQ, how-to's, and real code. Thoughts? Davec 13:44, 6 December 2006 (PST)

Why CamelCase?

MediaWiki supports free links, why are most page titles in the CamelCase format? - Sikon 05:34, 27 February 2007 (PST)

CamelCase? I don't see what you mean. If you think something's wrong, you may go ahead and change it. That's what wikis are for.--Saoshyant 05:37, 27 February 2007 (PST)
Historical reasons. The original wiki used software that only supported CamelCase. For new pages it is fine to use free links. I suggest not renaming pages, as many of them have good search ranking. Andrel 07:03, 27 February 2007 (PST)
