Talk:Association of Splittist Wikipedians

I have created a redirect for splittism since there is currently no article explaining it, and rediected it here. If it is later decided that it is synonymous with separatism, then as above, it would be more appropriate to direct it there, or move separatism to splittism, whatever is more appropriate. In either case, I am curious why there are two 'ts' in the term. Is this because when the word 'split' becomes a conjugated verb it's 'splitting'? I presume this is to avoid it being read as having a long 'i' as the double consonant retains it as a short vowel. So anyway my question is, would the potential to misunderstand this by large enough that possibly Splitism shold also be made into a redirect? Tyciol 20:17, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
You should note that while splitting can be partly undone by the transclusion of many small articles into a large one, for those who want a grander view, the converse is not true, as talk pages are per article, not per section. In addition, a collection of small articles which can be put together into a number of different large ones cannot be described by merged articles, but instead demands reproduction of information, which can then in one article contradict what is said in another.
- As a mediawiki feature that splittists should be interested in : making permalinks work such that a view of transcluded articles can note in its permalink the revision id of all transcluded articles, so that an actual snapshot of the article at a given point in time can be reconstructed.

Asteroids & minor planets
We should protect asteroids and minor planets which are articles very suceptible (maybe the most suceptible) to be merged or deleted. As someone just said, a very good way for this is adding information so an article can become greater (although in this specific case it could be something a LOT hard or also a LOT LOT tedious (but little is better than nothing)) --Damërung 02:03, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
"Chinese" "separatists" or "splittists"
Just a note to say it's interesting to see splittism used in a non-Chinese politics context. I went Googling for a reason news reports translate 分裂主义 as "splittism" instead of "separatism" (which can also be 分离主义, I think). It's one of these invented words for Tibetan and Taiwanese and other folks the PRC government considers an indivisible part of China, but obviously the English for the phenomenon is "separatism" aside from the problem of translation. Anyway, persuasive argument about the hurricanes. --18.104.22.168 08:13, 17 July 2009 (UTC) (sorry for anon post, I haven't an account.)
