That way, if a page for ''description'' does get created later, we don't have to go back to edit find places where that same phrase was sent to a different page (which would be confusing).

#<s> Discord integration that logs recent changes
# <s>Change namespace of WikiMeow to Endmyopia</s></s># <s>Change the Vector skin style to look yellow and cool</s>
#* Consider changing the default skin from Vector to Timeless. It follows the trend of "responsive web design" where the same look adapts to all screen sizes, most importantly mobile phones. "Responsive web design" sites [https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/11/mobile-first-indexing.html get a higher rank on Google].
#* Alternatively, you could do what Wikipedia does, keep Vector for the desktop default and use MobileFrontend/Minerva for mobile devices. Looks a bit dated, but more people will be familiar with this setup. [[User:Heddy|Heddy]] ([[User talk:Heddy|talk]]) 02:08, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
::{{notdone}}. I think the guys we're going are more of the traditional type perhaps. I kind of see anything that isn't Vector or Monobook and my gag reflex goes off, because I'm a stubborn wiki editor. I'm really close-minded, I should work on that :P -[[User:NottNott|<span style="color:#2ca243e67e22">NottNott</span>]] <small>([[User talk:NottNott|talk]]) </small> 18:47, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
:::Vector on a traditional desktop is certainly the best for editing. But most people are readers, not editors... and they're usually on a mobile device. Vector is quite unappealing on mobile devices. Always needing to zoom in and out to read text and tap links. I'd guess that seeing a desktop-only website is more likely to cause people to gag than seeing Vector on desktop and Minerva on mobile (Wikipedia's setup). Regardless of what the default is, users can always select Vector at [[Special:Preferences]] or with "Desktop view" at the bottom of the page.
:::I ask that you cast aside your own feelings in order to accommodate the majority of potential readers, making vision improvement information as accessible as possible. [[User:Heddy|Heddy]] ([[User talk:Heddy|talk]]) 02:39, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
::::I think Vector is a familiar Wiki layout to most people who read Wikipedia. Using it creates a degree of confidence and familiarity for new readers who don't have to relearn the layout of the website. [[mw:Extension:MobileFrontend]] will be installed, negating the issues somewhat for mobile users. I'm open to different skins and extensions for mobile users, definitely, will look into what can be done for mobile. Mobile optimisation is super important for SEO from what I can tell. I'd prefer to keep desktop defaulting to Vector. The Vector skin will be customised and tweaked to be more of a slice of EM, with a yellowish colour scheme instead of the default. If there are any skins you think I should add as options in preferences, please let me know! :)
