queen's english

if queen's english is the prefered style, specifying it in the writing policy would probably clear up confusion on the issue, since many editors are probably not familiar with it-- at least in that they wouldn't use it normally. (talk) 23:08, April 23, 2011 (UTC)miah

It was. The change was reverted because there was an ongoing discussion on the matter. Changing it before the issue was resolved wound make it seem like we had an agenda, so we waited until the talk was over. It seems we forgot to update it again.

ah. I looked at the writing style guide when it was changed back, that's why I left the comment. I was unaware however, that it was currently being debated (talk) 23:20, April 23, 2011 (UTC)miah
It has been a while since someone manifested on the matter, and since regular users seem to be upholding the UK spelling, I'll update the manual of style. Hopefully it won't trigger more discussion. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:26, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
Assuming people read the writing style section, hopefully. I just wasn't around for those debates, obviously. Granted, I also wasn't aware that defense was spelled differenly in the Queen's English. (talk) 23:58, April 23, 2011 (UTC)miah
There are some words I didn't know were spelled differently as well, I get around that with UK English spell-checking. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:01, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

When you change it as well, you should probably include a reference to the prefered comma usage as well, because I know in British writing comma rules are a little different at least to where the comma falls at the end of a quotation. I assume Queen's English rules as well would govern comma usage along with prefered spelling, though most don't know what the difference is I think, that the English put the comma on the outside of the quotation marks where in America it typically falls on the inside (depending on the writing format of course) (talk) 00:18, April 24, 2011 (UTC)miah
