From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The subpages are a project by a user or users in the Phillipines, who may have difficulty understanding how to work on Wikiversity, a number of the accounts have been indef blocked on Wikipedia. They are not, however, vandals, and are learning wikitext and collecting data on a favorite sport, and that activity increases knowledge. They make mistakes; however, this is also true of young users and many learners at first, so I urge patience in handling the occasional problems. --Abd (discusscontribs) 18:52, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Curation of Volleyball project pages[edit source]

The resource Dominant group/Wikiversity is a research project aimed at determining why so many women, in this instance collecting data and records on volleyball, were apparently discouraged from continuing to contribute to Wikiversity.

As part of the above research, most, or nearly all, templates and resources, that are needed to curate the project are being restored if deleted and where possible put as close to completion as possible. --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 18:51, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Why[edit source]

I do not understand why this resource exists on Wikiversity. Wikiversity exists for learning resources. One cannot learn to play a sport by reading about its history or certain tournament which took place. One learns by playing. This kind of thing belongs on Wikipedia (vis. Volleyball, History of Volleyball) or Wikibooks (vis. A History of Volleyball, An Anecdotal Account of Volleyball Rivalries).

Can someone explain what this offers to open education? GUYWAN (t · c) 18:59, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

@Guywan: It exists only because it involved users who were blocked from editing Wikipedia at a time when Wikiversity had wider support for accepting users who had been disruptive on other projects. It does not belong here. If you'd like to nominate it for Wikiversity:Requests for deletion, I suspect there's a good chance that it could be removed now. Thanks for asking. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 20:13, 16 March 2020 (UTC)
