Would like to add the following link to "See also", but only "category:Theora" is seen under the Edit. How to edit that template?

Go to Template:Theora and add Comparison of video services. Does this help? I'm not sure if it's an ideal link for the section but, being a wiki, new ideas are a must.--Ivo 06:57, 2 August 2008 (PDT)
You are saying the link, to a comparison of video codecs, would not make a good addition to the informational wiki? I will hold off adding it, unless someone else thinks it is a good idea.
Yeah, well. There's something you don't understand about the XiphWiki: it doesn't have enough users to be worth asking questions or opinions here. I'm pretty much the only person who checks what's going here frequently.
The problem with adding that link to "See also", is that it would show up on EVERY single Theora-related page, which is not ideal since it's an external link and it's only useful for those who want to host videos. Which would be the people looking on this article, but not on the other articles. I suggest just putting the link somewhere in this article.--Ivo 10:06, 3 September 2008 (PDT)
Thank you for your thoughts. I have put a description under the Video Sharing header, but the verbiage might be a bit strained. Feel free to modify, or even delete, as you feel necessary. --Matthew Craig 08:24, 14 September 2008 (EDT)

List Categorization

The list is categorized in a non-alphabetical order for two reasons. First, the purpose of the list is illustrating the use of Theora, so the more interesting and note-worthy usages of the technology are given a higher location in the list, while at the same time keeping the order of the categories sensible. This means the serial videos are kept with the sharing services, the short films are kept with the other short films, and the Linux videos are kept with other technical videos. Secondly, there is a misconception in Internet discussions that Theora is only used by Linux users, so there has been an attempt made on this wiki page to de-emphasize the Linux videos by moving them further down the page. Certainly, we want to list any Linux videos, especially the interesting use of Theora to produce Linux related episodic content. In conclusion, if you are interesting in editing the list categorization order, then please post your ideas here, so they can be discussed first. The order may seem arbitrary, but there is a method, and there may be better orders - so you are encourage to post and promote your ideas here on the discussion page. --Matthew Craig 14:18, 7 November 2008 (EST)
