Page structure and category tree of Wikimania wiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic5 Story Points

Description

Before too many pages crowd the new Wikimania wiki, a reasonable page structure and category tree should be discussed. Looking around at different conference websites, the structure in sidebars seem to be something like:

  • “Main”
    • Conference,
    • Organizers,
    • Contact,
    • Past Conferences
    • Sponsorship
    • Program
    • Attend
    • Local Info
    • Other

How would this work for the Wikimania wiki? What should be changed and in what way?

We would also have to decide on a category tree. Of course it could be changed later, but a lot of work could be saved if we had one set from the beginning. What do you think about a spontaneous proposal like the following?

  • Categories collecting everything from each year’s Wikimania.
    • “Wikimania 2018”, “Wikimania 2019”, etc.
  • Categories depending on what type of page it is/what it includes:
    • Presentations
    • Communications
    • Discussions
    • Keynotes
    • Lightnings
  • Categories depending on what it should be used for?
    • Legacy

Please do not add Wiki-Setup (Create) to other tasks than create a wiki tasks. Thanks!

It seems to have done that automatically, sorry for that.

Projects are inherited from the parent task when you create a subtask. You can remove them on the task creation screen (the one you come to by clicking "Create Subtask").

I have re-added the tag to the parent task, since that task was about creating a wiki. As Sebestien says, you have to manually remove the task while creating subtasks.

Forgive the intrusion, but… why can't things like this be discussed on the wiki itself?

For me, the place of discussion is less important than the discussion itself. If people prefer to discuss on the Wiki instead, no problem with me!

If on wiki, we should do in the Project:/Wikimania: namespace.

As a general comment. We will have three active content namespace to manage

  • Wikimania:/Project: mechanics of operating the wiki
  • Main (ns:0) which will be enduring
  • 2019: for all specific WMSE WM content; though it may have some parent components in main; or may simply be redirects to 2019:
