What's the Weekly Wiki?
It's an informal meeting/workshop/get-together, in which we can (once a week) expect to be able to interact with other Citizens in something closer to real-time. So you can announce your new articles; request help with articles; ask questions about policy or the software; introduce proposals; generally chat; etc.
Wednesdays when there's no Write-a-Thon, at:
- Wednesday UTC 0900 (= 7 PM Sydney)
- Wednesday UTC 1800 (= 7 PM London, 8 PM Paris)
- Thursday UTC 0100 (= Wednesday 6 PM California, 9 PM New York)
We'll say that the Weekly Wiki happens for two hours beginning at each of those times, but anytime Wednesday, you can write on the Weekly Wiki page.
Just a thought - if we're going to be using the Metadata template widely for the subpages project and as an eventual replacement for the Article Checklist - are there additional things we should be recording or including from the start. Offhand, I can think of two things:
- Under-referenced? A yes/no parameter, indicating whether the article has enough referenced sources.
- Needs image(s)? A yes/no parameter, indicating whether the article has enough (or any) photos, diagrams or other images included. Anton Sweeney 09:07, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
- As I was adding checklists this morning, I came across several of our Catalog pages. Perhaps on our 0-4 article status scale we could add a 5 to mark it as a catalog rather than an article? --Todd Coles 09:11, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
You're right. This is something we've got to get on top of soon, before doing the Big Subpagination. Re the status of catalogs, this is something we've discussed on the forums before. Now that we've got a metadata page, I'm inclined to have separate statuses for each different subpages type. So, a catalog can be external, a stub, developing, or developed. --Larry Sanger 09:31, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
Help with the Unionist article
Direct permission? I don't really know... Its from a newspaper though, its an image of two political leaders of a political entity.. Denis Cavanagh 09:53, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
So you think that any photograph taken of any political leaders is therefore in the public domain? --Larry Sanger 09:58, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
I'm not sure to be honest. I guess in a perfect world copyright laws wouldn't exist period, that knowledge would be exchanged in pretty much the same way this place operates. To be honest whenever I have uploaded an image I haven't had the foggiest what most of the different licences meant. Please delete any that are in breach of the law, and my apologies Denis Cavanagh 10:16, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
- Unfortunately, that image, while rapidly becoming iconic, is indeed copyrighted and we haven't obtained permission for its use (I've therefore deleted it). I agree that checking the correct license is in use and/or obtaining the necessary permission is a pain - but its a necessary one, for various reasons including legal ones and the protection of CZ's reputation. Most of the time, though, it only involves sending an email or two. Anton Sweeney 10:27, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
