Currently, this article is Way too long, it would be great if someone could take a moment to split it up. DavidWatson 17:35, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

More specifically, I split it up because the pageload time was too long, and MediaWiki gives a warning in the editor for articles over 32K. The ability to do a site-wide search should help somewhat, but if you have another option, that could be good. I agree that it is slighly annoying that you cannot just do ctrl-F on the page in this version. DavidWatson 22:43, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
