Talk:Archive:Policy Outline

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Revision as of 11:51, 10 March 2007 by Stephen Ewen (Talk | contribs) (==Proposed additions==)

Do feel free to clean this up in the sense of making useful links, making spelling corrections, etc., and other small changes. One change that needs making is that the "Authors and Authoring Citizendium Articles" and "Policy regarding Individual Editors" headings need to be top-level whereas the ones immediately follow are subheadings. I think it might make the outline a bit more helpful if every paragraph weren't made an outline heading, i.e., if they were just bolded as per [1]. --Larry Sanger 01:21, 29 October 2006 (CST)

I changed sections 16 and 17 to not have fourth level headers "====" and instead make it bold. The TOC is more manageable now. -- Andrew Lih 05:33, 29 October 2006 (CST)

Link to Forum comment pages please

All, if you make Forum comments that are relevant to this document, or any policy document, please link from the talk page of the document to the forum page that has the comments relevant to the document. --Larry Sanger 19:43, 5 December 2006 (CST)

Might it be more--well--wikilike--to divide this document into pages, and discuss changes & additions to eachparts on the talk pages for the part?DavidGoodman 14:29, 9 December 2006 (CST)
I'd strongly second that, having come to the talk to make the same suggestions. As it is, it's almost unreadably long for the standard short-attention-span web dweller. Any objections to me making a draft "summary style" of this with supporting pages to make it more concise? - brenneman 19:12, 27 December 2006 (CST)

There's a slightly compressed version now at User:Aaron Brenneman/Sandbox3 with supporting links to pages that contain all the original text, waiting to be edited mercilessly. This is a patchwork solution, I'd suggest that a re-structuring of the "from scratch" might be useful? Here's an initial thought as to how this page's outline should look, above. Please chop/change to suit and we'll find something we all agree on.
