At first I wasn't sure about bolding keywords in items' description, but eventually I think it's a good idea. Will be added to our guidelines.
The birth date is useful for other pages, e.g. rating area. I know it's a bit redundant, but please keep adding it also to the description. I think it makes the description more encyclopedic, which works to the advantage of the site.
Right now, it's not an issue but that's only because OpiWiki doesn't have enough items. But, if the website is successful, it could be a big problem in the future.
Exactly because of this, this issue doesn't have the highest priority at the moment. Of course it will be much improved in the future. I will take your ideas into consideration.
I think the name info should be mandatory for ANY item.
I disagree on that. Barack Obama (politician) is collateral, superfluous. However, for some types for items, I agree that it would be good to add name info for all, e.g. for songs or music albums (as it has been). For now, please use the format according to our guidelines.
Issue #1: Seems like a bug, I'm unable to reproduce it. I'd need an additional info. What environment are you on?
Issue #2: You're free to enlarge the area. It may vary accross the browsers, but in general just drag it with your mouse.
Big thanks for the great work you've already done. Keep it up.
