Some suggestions[edit source]

  1. Use somewhat larger photos and use thumb to resize (see example below)
  2. Copy image without caption, then use the caption feature to type in the caption (see example below)
  3. remember that matching the original spacing exactly is very hard to force, especially since people will be viewing with different screen sizes. Just use the left, right, etc. features (see example below)
Example code: [[Image:Imagename.jpg|thumb|right|caption]]

In addition, this page name should be renamed to lower case (except for the very first letter), to possibly be more descriptive and to possibly be in the Original namespace. Please talk to Curt about it.

I moved it...[edit source]

I noticed Lonny's comment, plus that you used a different naming policy on the new page that you're porting. I thought perhaps you might not know how to rename a page (you use the "move" tab at the top of the page). Also, there was already a page called "rainwater harvesting", but it was just a redirect, so I deleted it (which is only an option for admins). But it raises a potential issue, since "Rainwater harvesting" is a fairly common name. Ultimately, this page will be moved to Rainwater harvesting, or perhaps Practical Action Rainwater harvesting (some interesting capitalization policy questions there), so I'll get another chance to scratch my head on the naming details. --CurtB 15:44, 22 April 2007 (PDT)

I think that Practical Action rainwater harvesting would be the best name regardless of the namespace (which I still have questions about). I think that Rainwater harvesting should probably still redirect to Category:Rainwater (or alternatively to the yet to be created Category:Rainwater harvesting). And that the PA page should be prominently linked from and included in that category. I made some suggestions about our category policy at Help_talk:Categories#Category_guideline. --Lonny 16:09, 22 April 2007 (PDT)
