Changed the name of this article to be in line with newer, slightly less formal subject conventions than we were using for the TechLib section. I'm also going to reverse the order of the elements in the slug to be in line with the conventions we're using everywhere else, so wiki-gts-modulator becomes wiki-modulator-gts.

On the topic of changing slugs..

Do you think that it's too great a power to be given to normal users, considering that changing it after initial creation breaks all the links?

I can foresee mass confusion arising from a newbie mistake.

I agree with you on that Ian.

Definitely. Currently, only mods can change slugs. Even then, we really need some mechanism by which we can see which articles link to any given one so that we can chase down the links when we change a slug.

I expect that we'll probably end up just not changing slugs after things get up and running, simply because it's too much work to chase after every user's new articles. There are a number of them, though, that are important and should be cannonical. Chief among these are the articles for each model, which absolutely must have consistent, predictable slugs and titles.

Oh, okay... I thought the slug field was available to all. Good plan.
