Should there be a section for the xkcd comic that refers to the Simple English Wikipedia?--Rvolz (talk) 13:56, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

It's negatively publicity but we need to be neutral. DJDunsie (talk) 18:28, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
To me, it's not negative at all. 70.29.75.104 (talk) 04:14, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

People with learning disabilities[change source]

I have changed the phrase "adults who find it quite often hard to learn" to "people with learning disabilities". This phrase was needlessly wordy and euphemistic and already redirected to the Wikipedia page on learning disabilities, which is not a derogatory term.

Oops, I thought I was on regular English wikipedia, I now see that I am on Simple English Wikipedia, which may explain the awkward phrasing. I will revert and allow somebody who knows the subject better to make this decision.

Pages on technical subjects[change source]

I think we should acknowledge the fact that Basic needs extensions for technical subjects. Something like

"Technical subjects may use some terms which are not simple. Every effort will be made to explain these terms in simple language".
