I'm currently revising some Wiki articles from a linguistic point of view.
Honestly I'd rather see some native English speaker do that, but it seems we're short on them.
However, even for me some obvious flaws clearly show, and I am trying to correct them.
So the question comes up: are we using US-English or British English here?
( or Australian or .... face-smile-big.png
Has this even been decided, or discussed even?


Being no programmer, I apologize for all my suggestions that imply undue workload and for other misjudgements due to lack of expertise or relevant skills.

I don’t know, if it was discussed before, but I vote for Oxford English, for that’s what we’ve learned in school. face-wink.png

True, of course, but some of the older folks (like me face-smile.png may have more practice with the US variant.
More important than that may be our user base.
Do we have any information, where the registered users come from?
