You do not need to be an educator to edit. You only need to be bold to contribute and to experiment with the sandbox or your userpage. See you around Wikiversity! --Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 18:57, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Creating an all sports resource[edit]

  1. The first thing you need to do is learn to write in wikitext. A good place to practice is your sandbox at User:DonLandry2/sandbox. You can quickly access your own sandbox at the top of this page.
  2. In that sandbox, you might collect a list of Wikiversity pages similar to what you want to do. I prefer to do this search using Google instead of the Wikiversity search bar in the upper right corner.
  3. Also, leave me a note right here by clicking "Add topic" at the top of this page. I will put you on my "watch list" and will probably respond within 24 hours when I see something.

Denver Broncos[edit]

I would like to create a resource on the Denver Broncos. --DonLandry2 (discusscontribs) 19:09, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

You might consider creating a learning project on American Football, and then include a subpage on the Denver Broncos. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 19:20, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
Dave might yell at me for doing this, but I took the liberty of adding a subpage list to your user space. Delete it if you don't like it. Also, [[Broncos]] shouldn't be in mainspace, but instead be a subpage to something. I temporarily moved your page to:
User:DonLandry2/Denver Broncos
Let me know when you find an appropriate place for it and I will move it there for you. --Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs)
Oops! @DonLandry2:I just noticed that Dave is also helping you, and created a mainspace for you to work in. I will keep my hands off unless you request assistance with moving. @Dave Braunschweig: I didn't notice your page creation.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 19:34, 23 November 2015 (UTC)


So far, it looks like you've created pages for Lynx and Flowers, but haven't added much detail. What is the focus of your contributions? The reason I ask is that Wikiversity is not Wikipedia. There are already excellent resources for Lynx and Flowers at Wikipedia:Lynx and Wikipedia: Flower. What will these new pages provide that goes beyond what Wikipedia has to offer? Alternatively, is there something specific you want to learn, either about creating wiki pages or about creating lessons for others? -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 20:55, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Welcome, DonLandry2! An example of the kind of Wikiversity learning project related to your interest in flowers is Bloom Clock where participants record when they first see a particular type of flower bloom opening. You can learn more about this project at Help:Guides. --mikeu talk 22:14, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

I mean.... I'm more than happy to lend a hand in some of the pages in Category:Animals, such as Lynx. Now, forwarding to the more "Wikiversity appropriate" page criteria: We can make pages about animals educational and user friendly by quizzes on information about a specific animal; images of animals, then asking the user to point to which animal is that animal (difference between bobcat and lynx, for example).
Also, on a side note, we should gather all the animal pages and put them under one big project, so it is easier to find the pages without having random pages on different animals. What are your thoughts on this DonLandry2? (BTW, Welcome to Wikiversity).
P.S. Knowing that you seem interested in Animal pages, would you like to lend a hand at this project on Wikibooks? Thanks!
