Impacts on Operational Servers[edit]

Will this activity be focused on page content, server architectures, both? Do the experiments conducted in this activity have any chance of negative impact on Wikiversity's operational servers? Will potentially negative experiments be put off until the Wikiversity sandbox server[1] becomes available? Mirwin 06:51, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Mirwin: I have created this template Template:WAWtranscluder for facilitating the discussion of pages in Wikiversity; you can see it in action here: Web_architecture_for_Wikis/ToolSandbox. The objective is more to create a space for the discussion of architectural issues -- so, to answer your question: page content. I don't forsee any negative consequences. Not to mention that things are pretty quiet around here lately :-) Countrymike 07:27, 8 November 2007 (UTC)
This kind of interesting. If I understand what you are doing we could use your template to have meta discussions about how to improve a page for a specific target age group without that age group seeing the discussion on the actual page? For example: If in Lunar Boom Town safety engineers and responsible adults wanted to discuss how to revise a page encouraging recycling to discourage unsafe dumpster diving we could use this template and it would not be obvious to casual reader of the actual page or discussion page of the actual page?

Mirwin: yes, i suppose you could use it for that. I'm quite fascinated by your project I just can't quite see a way in as of yet, but am keen to talk and explore some more. Using a space like this for simulation is right up my alley, seeing as I suck in second life because theres not enough text. Countrymike 05:38, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
