Welcome to the SEG Wiki, Chrisdinneen! I've noticed the improvements you've been making to Sheriff's Encyclopedia Dictionary. Well done! Please feel free to ask questions over on my talk page or email the SEG Wiki team at wiki‐at‐seg.org. Ifarley (talk) 11:44, 18 February 2015 (CST)

Hello, again! Andrew Geary, SEG wiki editor, beat me to the response. Thank you, Andrew. I'm going to paste it into your talk page below, so you'll receive a notification when you log back into the wiki. I echo Andrew's sentiments: these talk pages are the perfect place to ask questions. Feel free to post questions or comments on user talk pages or article talk pages, too. Thanks for all your great work! Ifarley (talk) 09:31, 19 February 2015 (CST)
This is the perfect place for this message. Thank you for reaching out and for working on those equations. We have been excited to see the progress.
There is a lot to this question. You can only rename wiki pages by moving the page. This is done by hovering over the arrow to the right of the View/Edit toolbar. There you can click "Move" and it will take you to a new screen. Any page that you move will automatically create a redirect for any links to the original page. So in essence, by renaming the file the links would not be broken. SEG does not currently have a policy on these cases, but you bring up a good point and one we will discuss with the larger Wiki Committee.
Given the consistent nature of this issue in the Dictionary, I would not begin moving these pages as of now. We are having larger discussions about the Dictionary that could impact moving the pages as they stand. You can feel free to edit the non-ASCII characters in the editing window however. By removing those characters and replacing it with LaTeX (for example) will not break any links and help create a less confusing editing experience. For example, this is what I did for this page.
One other note, using HTML in this way is common in MediaWiki. I appreciate you highlighting this issue and for reaching out to us. If you sign these talk pages with ~~~~ it will leave your username and time stamp the request. This is always helpful. Please let us know how we can help and keep up the great work!
