Percentage precision

I like the percentages in the Errors table, but I think showing hundredths of a percentage point gives the reader far too much information. I would prefer to see 0%, -11%, -12%, -34%, +27%, -31%. --TallKite (talk) 05:39, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

I agree in this. --Xenwolf (talk) 07:24, 9 June 2020 (UTC)
I'd still like to have one decimal place. It's a convenient way to check whether an interval is consistent. Here's a case where you can't with such precision. 15/11 in 19edo: -27-(-11-12)% = -50%. An additional decimal place practically keeps such occurence away. FloraC (talk) 03:29, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Page name change

I see that User:Xenwolf has moved this article from "19edo" to "19-EDO". The same happened to the 12edo page, and possibly others. But this change is not consistent at all across pages. The justification for this change was that it's more common to write it this way, but in practice I've seen "Nedo" far more than "N-EDO". But my perspective as a Discord user could be limiting me there. "EDO is actually an abbreviation and the number in front of it can be grasped at a glance" is the other reason given, which I don't think is sound when the acronym is explained right in the header. I would like to hear more of a reason why Xenwolf did this, and whether any other people were involved. --User:SupahstarSaga

Working on this wiki for more than 10 years, I'm well aware that around 1000 pages follow the nedo pattern. What I'm trying to do is improve the accessibility to public readers (people that come from search engines or Wikipedia). What I think should be secondary is if it's comfortable for people who already know what this all is about. Please join the discussion under Xenharmonic Wiki talk:Conventions #EDO vs. edo (and MOS vs. mos). (BTW maybe n-edo could be a solution that fits all?) --Xenwolf (talk) 12:47, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
