I think this subforum is unnecessary. This wiki forum already receives pretty low traffic, so creating more subforums would be a waste once there is no activity.

If the subforum helps people keep taps on the renaming of wiki pages I am all for it.

Lets make the subforum and then remove it once we've remove the backlog ?

Forums are not revision control systems. If you want to do that, it's much easier to create a Git repository where the problem pages are tracked in text files, or using issues in GitHub. You are already tracking a bunch of dependencies and things like that using Git; same principle.

I sort of grok you. With that logic, we could also create a wiki page..or we could have a trello board?

Edit: BTW, I've been trying to fix the pywikibot script. Overcome some errors and now working on fixing a new one.

I don't know what that trello is, but yes, we can use other things, the wiki itself to track wiki pages! Or we could get Monday dot com. Man, I've seen a million ads of those guys in the recent days.

never heard of 'em. Maybe because I use an adblocker ?

PrezmoF and myself are still trying to debug a problem in pywikibot so we can't do sweeping renames of wiki pages just yet. Will keep y'all updated. In the meantime, I think we should try trello as an experiment to see if we can organize documentation needs. I'll look in to starting a new board and invite whomever is interested. I will need emails in order to invite the ones who want to participate. Please PM them to me.
