2008-03-07 11:10:39 What would be the advantage of a distinct wiki? —sgl
2008-03-07 12:22:02 Well, you are filling up the Sacramento Wiki with information about people like a former Governor of Louisiana. That's not really fair to the editors trying to make a wiki about Sacramento. It is a bit as if somebody jumped into the studio of this show and started talking about the best locations for pasta in the city. On the other hand, listing good places to get pasta in Sacramento fits this wiki.
In addition, you are "outside linking" inside links. That's causing all kinds of havoc with the stats and search system that tries to assist editors in locating entries without links.
You have some great content here, but the bulk of it doesn't really have to do with Sacramento. A distinct wiki would give it room to grow, have a unique domain and URL, homepage and editors. All Wiki Spot wikis could link to it equally ... like for instance the Baton Rouge one. Areas that get Access Sacramento (like a future Roseville or Citrus Heights wiki) could link to the Great Speeches and Interviews wiki from their entries on Access Sacramento. —JabberWokky
2008-03-07 16:37:02 I don't want to make a headache for the editors but I just moved some of the pages from Wiki Spot because the front page wasn't showing up on 'All Pages'. —sgl
2008-03-07 18:17:34 Another reason as to why you really really should set up your own distinct wiki for this project. —JabberWokky
2008-03-10 13:58:09 So far this issue of the location of a page only seems to be a concern of an editor. I am unable to see why a non-editor would be concerned. —sgl
2008-03-11 10:52:26 People use this wiki to learn about Sacramento, look for restaurants and events in the area and things of that nature. Like JabberWokky said, you have some great content here. But most of it doesn't pertain to Sacramento, so it doesn't belong here. —CharlesMcLaughlin
2008-03-11 13:32:55 Keep in mind sgl, we're all trying to assist you to create the best format for your project — we're all taking the time to discuss this with you because we think your content is good, and we're all just chiming in to help you with the mundane housekeeping stuff that's not obvious when you're first getting started. —JabberWokky
