Different xxx (to, than, from)

All three are commonly used. From is correct. BradleyF (LowKey) 04:41, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Not sure

Not sure if this is really necessary. I mean, this site obviously has a biblical worldview that's explicitly stated on the Main Page, as well as other areas of the site. I mean, Wikipedia obviously has a secular liberal bias and so does Citizendium. Conservapedia is a right-wing blog site, yes. What I'm getting at is that this seems to be addressed adequately on other pages.--Colonel Sanders 03:06, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

but the page states differences that are not actually in place now, but rather intentions for the future. Those sections should be fixed with what is actually in place now. Hamster 03:41, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
That would work.--Colonel Sanders 03:47, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
Hamster, I don't see the issue with making an partly aspirational list of differences, some of which the site is today, others are things the site is trying to be today, even if it is still getting there. Trying to separate the aspiration from the reality would be an interesting exercise in reflection, no doubt; but that is a matter on which different people may perceive things differently (glass half empty/half full, and all that). --Maratrean 08:34, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
This page has always been linked from the main page, and is intended to give readers a quick overview of how we differ (or plan to) from other, similar, sites. Some is still in the future, but much is here now. Philip J. Raymentdiscuss 14:38, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
then denote what is in the future as that and all is good. It took ages to get enough votes together to vote in a few new members. There are still outstanding member nominations. What timeframe is there for member voted "sherrifs" and other positions ? Hamster 22:17, 9 May 2011 (UTC) Hamster aspires to give all his friends a few thousand dollars each if he could , but dont hold your breaths.
It already does indicate what is in the future. Is there something that I've missed, that doesn't indicate that? Timeframes depend on the growth in the number of members, etc., so I can't predict them. Philip J. Raymentdiscuss 02:26, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
