re Category work[edit]

Doing some category work, helping to categorize previously uncategorized categories listed at Special:UncategorizedCategories.

Hopefully this is helpful work that other can then build upon and help to categorize in better or more specific categories.

Went through a bunch, will go back through another pass at Special:UncategorizedCategories to try to cut down more on the backlog. As of last check there were about 344 uncategorized categories on Wikiversity. -- Cirt (talk) 05:51, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi Cirt! Thanks for your efforts on updating categories. One point to be aware of. Computer Science is specific to the study of computers themselves, typically software development, hardware engineering, etc. Information Technology is applied computer concepts. Therefore, IT Service and Support is Information Technology rather than Computer Science. I'll make the change. Thanks again! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:00, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Hey there Dave Braunschweig, thanks for the advice! And certainly feel free to make any changes, most appreciated! :) -- Cirt (talk) 17:24, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Wow! Nice to see you here Cirt! Well, thank you for your work here and english wikiquote, much appreciate. I am also surprised that you are not a sysop here, if you are active enough, you may request the right. Thanks! --~~Goldenburg111 17:37, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Your words are most kind, Goldenburg111, thank you! :) -- Cirt (talk) 17:43, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
Your welcome. --~~Goldenburg111 19:20, 27 March 2014 (UTC)


Let me suggest you rename the category more accurately, because the Aqib Aze Show wasn't and isn't trash. How about Category:Memorabilia? It's a document showing a certain level of development, and, later on, these things are precious. I enjoyed watching the show, i.e, how you developed and responded to caring support. While it's always your choice, I greatly prefer that you don't discard this material. --Abd (discusscontribs) 01:17, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

I agree, I was just playing around with that. --~~Goldenburg111 16:35, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Maybe in a few years, we can tell the whole story of this. There is value for this community in what we did. Ultimately, there is value for the entire WMF community, in what we do here. I see Wikiversity as being very important for the future of the WMF, including Wikipedia. That's a long story, but ... it's like real encyclopedias. Behind them are research institutions and universities, where subjects are deeply studied. Traditional encyclopedias were written by experts. Where do you find the experts? How is expertise known, i.e., how do we know who is expert and who is not? Wikipedia relies on "reliable source," but it takes expertise to know exactly what is actually reliable and what is not. It also takes expertise to interpret reliable source.
If you look at Wikipedia articles on difficult subjects, they are often unreadable. I.e., if you don't know the subject, you can't understand the article. That's because these articles were probably written by somewhat-advanced students, who don't know how to teach. Rarely, a college professor who doesn't know how to explain his subject to the general public. On Wikiversity, we can set up layers of education. That's way outside the scope of Wikipedia.
In any case, it's always nice to see you around. --Abd (discusscontribs) 19:01, 28 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Also, do you want to start now? --~~Goldenburg111 21:03, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Moving Content to User Space[edit]

Thanks for noticing a user had created assignment content in main space. When you move content to user space, be sure to check incoming links. The 'Here' page needed to be moved to a subpage of the user's existing project, the link needed to be corrected, and then the redirect page deleted. It's important when cleaning up to be sure to get not only the page, but incoming links and the redirect. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:57, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Dave, keep forgetting it. --Goldenburg111 21:57, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
