Can we make sure people who aren't logged in can't edit? User:Naweedkhan, 06:09, 8 April 2008

Hello, yes that would be possible, see Wikiversity:Page protection. Probably you ask because of this [1] ?
But then people would have to ask someone to unprotect it, when wanting to optimize it. This limits their freedom. can always easily be reverted - by anyone. I personally want as many people as possible to have access to nearly everything here, we are a wiki. And if a v.nd.l really wants to make problems they also can register an account :-(
On the other hand if a user forgets to log in, probably she would notice immediately and could log in then and write with her username. Also you or others would not have additional efforts to "clean" things up.
Were there more such test edits ? ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 06:55, 8 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I just blocked that IP from future edits here at Wikiversity: [2], ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 07:03, 8 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks, but I would like to now edit the name of my topic from "Dry cleaning detergents" to "Dry Cleaning Methods".

Internal note about responsibility for this project[edit source]

Copyright violations[edit source]

There has been great work done in this course; however, there are also quite a number of copyright violations - as well as uses of images which are ambiguous or problematic. The list below is from the first section of this course - and there may be others within the section that I have missed (for example, some of the images uploaded to Commons). I appreciate that in some cases, images are sourced, and claimed as fair use - but this is (usually) not good enough for Wikiversity. (An exception might be Image:OPG.JPG, which is clearly copyright, but which is the only image which could be used in its place, and is probably ok in context.) If you have uploaded an image that is copyright, please consider finding a suitably free alternative to put on the page you have used the image on. You can try our media repository, Commons, or search the web for Creative Commons images without the "no commercial" and/or "no derivatives" clauses ("cc-by" and "cc-by-sa" are fine). Please note that all images listed here are possibly subject to deletion. However, we will try to do all we can to help you give more information on licences, to find alternative images, and even to help get these images relicensed under a sufficiently free licence. Thanks. Cormaggio talk 17:22, 14 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Page structure[edit source]

Pages that are part of this resource have been structured using pagenames beginning with "DFExxxx" where xxxx is the year of the course. However, it would be clearer and tidier (and more useful in terms of Wikibooks, for example) if we use subpages, considering that a deep resource on Design for the Environment is being built. The identification of each page with the DEF section that created it is not a long-term benefit justifying the inclusion in the page name. I'm proposing to move the pages to subpages, leaving redirects in place. I would move DFE2009 Worldwide Package Cushioning to Design for the Environment/Worldwise Package Cushioning. I'd leave a note on the page as to the specific course origin, if it's not already there. I'd move all the other pages similarly. Comments? --Abd 17:13, 15 October 2011 (UTC)[reply]
