what goes here and what goes on HTYP

Jump to navigation Jump to search

At this point, I'm not really sure how to characterize it, beyond what I said above; I'm open to suggestions.

Maybe I should start with attributes that clearly place an article in one place or the other, no ambiguity:

HTYP Issuepedia
  • hands-on technical details
  • customer service issues
  • personal experiences (non-gov-related)
  • public policy
  • government/governance (at any level)
  • epistemology (mechanics of debate/rhetoric)
  • economics

I need to add a column for CWRE as well, since there's a lot of overlap there with Issuepedia.

I'm also open to rationales for modifying these delineations. I'm even open to discussing the idea that it's silly to have three separate wikis when there's so much overlap -- though there are details to resolve if they are going to be merged.

Well, yes, there is that whole "that's sort of a silly thing to do" aspect about it, and the question's occurred to me.

Poking around Wikipedia further (as I've been doing): there are numerous projects and categories within it, and one possibility is to emphasize content within one or more of those, and to escalate the primary projects on the homepage. It's a tagging solution to a classification problem, and handily avoids the question of "should this go here or here" that any fixed hierarchy imposes (absent links, references, etc.).

If you're using HTYP for specific business issues (and it's customer-facing), that could be a valid argument for keeping it split off. Otherwise, I'm not sure I see the need for a distinction.

CWRE as a project within Issuepedia seems like a slam-dunk to me.

I'm not versed on how Mediawiki projects are set up / supported within a given instance.
