What Wikipedia Should Be[edit]

I just saw Wikipedia:What Wikipedia Should Be. I think most people do not think about wiki editing as a way to learn and most people do not think in terms of communities of like-minded editors who can come together in a collaborative effort to learn. It seems like efforts towards having such collaborative learning projects at Wikipedia are mostly restricted to Wikiprojects. Sometimes I think it might be useful to have a Wikiversity project devoted to the study Wikipedia Wikiprojects. My general feeling is that Wikipedia WikiProjects are too focused on encyclopedia content.....that focus does not seem to efficiently allow development of learning communities. I tend to think that Wikiversity has more of a focus on learners, so it might be easier to develop learning communities at Wikiversity. --JWSchmidt 16:12, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Pi (language)[edit]

Was there a particular reason why you had to assume this warning was necessary and appropriate? --Fasten 14:14, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I meant to imply that it wasn't. --Fasten 19:43, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikiversity:Assume Good Faith[edit]

Hello, about this and this: we don't know yet what the user had in mind. With the revert we don't give him the chance to explain further her ideas. Don't you agree that we might perhaps miss something - perhaps because we assume something different ? The user might get now a bad idea about Wikiversity in general. What do you say - should we get the comment back and ask him more about his intentions ? ----Erkan Yilmaz Wikiversity:Chat 22:31, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

I have restored it again and will ask more to the user ok ? ----Erkan Yilmaz Wikiversity:Chat 22:37, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

Welcome to the Bloom Clock![edit]

Hello, Laleena, and thanks for signing up as a contributor to the Bloom Clock!

To get started, all that you need to do is keep your eyes open for flowers on plants growing outdoors. Then, depending on how well you know plants, you can either try to find the plant using the global keys, or just check the master list where plants are listed by their scientific names.

Assuming you find a log page for the plant you saw, all that you need to do is click [edit] above the list of signatures, and add *~~~~ on a new line below the last signature and above the line that begins with <noinclude>, which will make your signature appear on the profile page.

If you don't find a log page, just add an entry for the plant to the Master List using {{bcp|Scientific name|Common Name}}. Someone can then show you how to create a profile and log page for the plant.

If you don't know the name of the plant you saw, try asking on Bloom Clock/Unknown Plants using the template there. Photographs are very helpful, but if you don't have a digital camera, just give the best description you can and hopefully someone can identify it for you.

After you've logged 10 or more plants as flowering for your location, another bloom clock contributor will help you set up the categories and templates used to construct a key for your region, and try to match up your region to the global keys.

If you have any questions, ideas, or need something explained, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

(Apologies for the long-belated welcome message... finally got around to writing one!) --SB_Johnny | talk 09:25, 13 March 2008 (UTC)


hi, I saw your signup on Latin stream and have been thinking about learning some latin. Do you know of any websites that can translate simple latin phrases? --mikeu talk 20:43, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Hi, you are the most recent teacher signed in the Latin Language Division, so I wonder if you are active in this project. Akhram 12:18, 13 April 2008 (UTC).
