Deletion of [[Python/Using_Wikiversity_to_cross-link_advanced_and_introductory_programming]][edit]

This should be an easy decision, and probably should have been a speedy delete. Although I am virtually the sole author, two people did sign it and a link to it was placed on the Python page. The reasons for deleting it are:

  1. The request to put Python on campus computers was fulfilled (albeit on a different set of computers)
  2. The link to it clutters up the Python page.
  3. It serves no educational purpose.

I will send notes to the two co-sponsors informing them of my "suggestion" that we delete.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 12:47, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Would there be any value to other users in seeing how a successful proposal to link introductory and advanced programming courses can be developed? (I think there is.) What about, instead of deleting the proposal, move it under Topic:Computer programming or under a new project on programming proposals, computer proposals, computer lab configuration, or similar subject. The link from Python can be removed, and the original educational purpose preserved for other users. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:32, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Where to move this proposal?[edit]

OK, I agree that this needs to be kept. I will create a banner link at the top of my user page to this page, and edit this page appropriately. To avoid wasted effort, we shouldn't move this page until we have a good home for it.

Maybe it should be kept in an area like, Topic:Computer Programming/Proposals or you could create a topic for proposals and keep it somewhere in there. --I8086 (discusscontribs) 14:39, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
@I8086: Yes we will move it out of Python space as soon as we find a good home for it. And, we will be using the Python resource next Fall. Also, I have taken the liberty of removing the {{dr}} template--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 15:26, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Maybe it should just stay here in Python space?[edit]

If there is any sentiment for moving this out of "Python space", I will go along. As far as I can tell, the only reason for removing this from "Python space" is that it clutters up a search of this space using Special:PrefixIndex.

The reason not to move it is that there is no unique appropriate place, because of how to better engage students is widely dispersed throughout Wikiversity. This is as good a place as any for this discussion. To help readers find other discussions I have added a category. I will also rename the file.

Again, if the people at Python want this page moved, I will move it immediately.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 16:01, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
