To Do Lists in Wiki

Postby kentsmith9 » Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:59 am

I recently found a number of dead pages that link to some "to do lists" that for the most part do not seem to have a lot of activity for the last few years. When new editors find these pages they create confusion when they are not active.

I propose that we consider removing the connected pages that are not actively being used to reduce confusion. To be clear I am not proposing we remove any actively managed pages that link to this one.

Here are examples of pages I propose we remove from the Region 4 at least (or have someone actually set them up as these pages are simply templates with no real data for that area). The first three are pretty well set up already, so they may not be necessary to keep here any more anyway.

Looking for any level of feedback before I start executing the plan above.

Should we remove them or use the NeedInfo or similar template as a placeholder?

On the other hand, I found that the "metro area" to-do pages to be too limited in scope, so I switched to using a statewide one for Oregon.

My thought was most of the areas are much more established now 3 years later since most of those were created. I am questioning if we should be pushing people to use them, or to keep doing what we are doing without the ones not being used.

Note that on the Salt Lake city one I'm using that as the link site for Utah's Landmark guidelines, which I will maintain at least until a national set is finally published, if not beyond with modifications to match the national standard with any relevant localization rules. I looked at using the To do list as designed for a while but then decided I didn't feel like trying to edit (my still weak wiki-fu was even weaker then) it and just used it to host the link. So it's not as abandoned/ignored as it looks. Please leave it be.

And as the community of editors in Utah is finally starting to cooperate and communicate we may start using it. Though major projects are now fewer and further between.

What if we move the Utah Landmark link to the Landmark page? I was thinking we would likely need to do that for states that have slightly different standards.

My thought was once the national version is published, we would have a link at the top that says some states have some deviations from this list. Go to this page to check for your state. Then on each state's landmark page, we would say to follow the standard for everything not listed here, and only list the exceptions. That would be easier to maintain for each state.

We can certainly hold off on removing the Utah To Do page either way.

Well once the standard is published (if ever) Utah probably won't need more than a couple caveats to the list.

But moving the link would work just be sure to tell me so I can change my sig when you do. I hate clicking on a link to find somebody moved it.

Agreed on both.

Should we just dump this page and make to-do a category? It's a mess and few pages are actively updated.

Not sure what you mean in your proposal. I think the link you added is in the same boat as the one in my original proposal.
