Archive:High priority articles for pilot

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is now archived

This page was used in the first few months of the pilot project (and even before that!) and has since been deprecated in favor of the lists created by our Workgroups.



Come work on some encyclopedia articles with us.

The Citizendium project invites people to work on some of the very first edited versions of articles that will appear in the Citizendium. Express your interest below, or actually dive in!

Note to people working in discipline workgroups: if you transfer part of this list to a workgroup page, or if you tag all articles about a subject with [[Category:<topic> Workgroup (Top)]], then please remove the articles from this page. Why? Because we don't want to fork "high priority article" lists! Thanks. --Larry Sanger 17:03, 20 November 2006 (CST)

unless they fall into both categories, perhaps?DavidGoodman 19:31, 21 November 2006 (CST)
Which two categories do you mean? The articles on this page are "top" articles, which overlaps 100% with the superset of [[Category:<topic> Workgroup (Top)]] categories. --Larry Sanger 14:37, 1 December 2006 (CST)
What I had in mind was multi-subject categories, but now I ask about articles which some of the groups may have subsequently considered as not of top priority (such as all the animals) DavidGoodman 16:35, 1 December 2006 (CST)
Well, presumably, demoted articles should, if not live, be under any workgroup category at all. Does that answer the question? Sorry for the delay in reply... --Larry Sanger 21:27, 7 December 2006 (CST)
Has anyone started a discussion about articles that overlap categories (e.g., "God": Religion and Philosophy) on the Forums? Where? It's a good question and I have been worrying about it (as I worry about many things) for some time. I believe I may have made a proposal on CZ:Policy Outline but obviously if so it needs vetting. --Larry Sanger 21:24, 7 December 2006 (CST)
