Pages with Scala files

Hi BudjarnLambeth! I noticed you've added several pages to Category:Pages with Scala files, which definitely helps organizing the wiki. If you keep an eye at Special:RecentChanges, you'll notice I added more categories to those pages. I don't think there's a written convention anywhere, but it's usually in this order: n-tone scales, just intonation/tempered scales, scale family (if applicable), temperament/limit (if applicable), edo (if applicable), and Pages with Scala files at the end. Elfoctacot10 is a good example page for tempered scales, and Gann new aunts is a good example for just intonation scales. You'll also notice that we now put the Scala code within <pre> tags. I thought I'd let you know, in case you wanted to follow the current de facto format for scale pages. Let me know if you have any questions regarding this, and thanks for the help! --Fredg999 (talk) 04:46, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Hi Fredg999. Thank you for letting me know what the convention is, that is a big help :) I will use that format when I add categories to scala file pages in the future. --BudjarnLambeth (talk) 05:41, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Hidden categories

Hi! I wanted to let you know that the todo template automatically adds pages to the relevant todo categories, so you don't need to add those manually. Note however that todo categories are set as hidden categories, so they're not displayed by default; you have to enable the corresponding setting in your user preferences to be able to see them (click Preferences in the top bar, then select the Appearance tab, the checkbox should be near the bottom of that page). --Fredg999 (talk) 12:56, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Thank you for letting me know that :) I will change my user preferences accordingly. --BudjarnLambeth (talk) 22:30, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Category of individual temperaments

Plz note that Category:Temperaments is used for main namespace individual temperament pages. Category pages of these individual temperaments such as Category:Superpyth should be under Category:Category by temperaments. FloraC (talk) 06:02, 26 April 2023 (UTC)

Alright, I will do that from now on. Thanks for letting me know :) --BudjarnLambeth (talk) 06:03, 26 April 2023 (UTC)

Lalagu and 1/7 comma

Please note that while lalagu (12 & 79) sounds indistinguishable from 1/7-comma meantone, it's far from being "extremely close" to it as they use a drastically different mapping for 5. Besides, it is fundamentally a different comma to 81/80. Eliora (talk) 18:24, 23 November 2023 (UTC)

Before I touched the 91edo article, it had lalagu (12 & 97) and didn't have meantone. I figured there was probably some special reason why that was the case and didn't want to mess it up so that's why I left lalagu in place. Feel free to change whatever needs to be changed to make the articles accurate. --BudjarnLambeth (talk) 09:43, 25 November 2023 (UTC)
