People who work on writing projects on the wiki are asking for an online venue they can use to talk about...

  • Manual of Style issues that we need to settle to avoid rework
  • ...and other stuff.

There is a poll on the forums as to whether to make the links blue instead, which would also conform to what Google and Bing do. Please read the thread/explanation and vote.
