Recently, in this thread, there was discussion about confusion as to the nuances of actions vs. stamps vs.quickstamps.
I’ve just added this new page to aTbRef and would welcome comment as to omissions/errors. I’m very aware that when writing from a position of prior expertise it’s easy to unwittingly omit things that aren’t obvious until you know.
The new page has—I hope—relevant outbound links but isn’t inwardly linked yet from the rest of aTbRef as this is essentially still a draft.
To assist better quality linking (plus the trend now is back to smaller screens), I try to keep individual articles short and this is probably long enough. So it may be we need to split this article out. However, to do so might undermine the starting premise of comparing actions, stamps and quickstamps.
I think the topic addresses two discrete starting points:
- “I got an unexpected result”, i.e. which thing does what.
- “Which is the correct method”. The new user’s problem of an expectation that there is a single/right way to do things. For this group the main point is to show that there are a range of options.
