Template talk:Comp List-Common

There is no need to put pages which will be transcluded into Template:* . I think Template:* should only be used for templates without specific content.


[edit] mod comment

I would agree. In addition the pagename becomes available in its own right as a source for the user. Page names should consider all users of this wiki. For exampe Comp List-Common has no meaning and does not indicate that this is for Kindle devices only. Pick names that can focus the user on the desired page and whenever possible use something a user might type in the search box. --DaleDe (talk) 16:32, 30 October 2012 (EDT)
