Internet Protocol Analysis

Thanks for stopping by and editing the intro to Internet Protocol Analysis. If you have any other recommendations, I'd appreciate hearing from you. The course goes live with approximately 100 real world students on January 14. -- Dave Braunschweig (talk) 23:39, 26 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Earning money[edit source]

What learning project is Earning money associated with? That title doesn't appear to be either an academic topic or have a corresponding Wikipedia subject associated with it. We're trying better organize Wikiversity so that top-level pages are either a course or full lesson on a particular subject. If you believe an Earning money redirect is necessary, what project should it redirect to? -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:33, 29 May 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maybe it should be a redirect to business?

No Solicitation[edit source]

Wikiversity's mission is to create and host free learning materials and activities. Solicitation for external organizations and websites is not accepted. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 22:30, 24 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can you site a policy specific about this? Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 22:45, 2 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
See Wikipedia:Wikipedia:External links#Links normally to be avoided. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:26, 2 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Is that referring to user pages or main namespace? Do Wikipedia policies apply to Wikiversity? Might wikiversity experience more growth if self promotion is allowed, at least on user pages? Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 23:45, 2 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, it comes from Wikiversity:External links. I clicked one too far before pasting the link. Regarding self promotion, see Wikiversity:Mission. The mission isn't growth or promotion elsewhere. The mission is free resources hosted here. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:33, 3 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edit Summary[edit source]

Please include an Edit summary description with your changes. Also note that Wikiversity naming convetions do not require Sentence case titles. In fact, most academics prefer Title Case. Let me know if you have any questions. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 16:37, 18 September 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Open interviews[edit source]

The pages created at Open interviews/I want to see aging defeated. Interview me! and Talk:Open interviews/I want to see aging defeated. Interview me! were self-promotion and solicitation for your own efforts outside of Wikiversity. They were not consistent with the Wikiversity:Mission and have been deleted. Please focus your editing efforts on developing learning projects that support the Wikiversity mission. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:44, 15 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wow. You really want to stifle growth on this site. Good job. My open interview was better received on Reddit. Please userify the page for a week so I can transwiki it to a different wiki. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 18:06, 15 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm sorry to see that your vision of growth at Wikiversity is to grow Reddit at our expense. There is no need to restore the requested content. The text has been forwarded to your email account. Best of luck to you. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 19:48, 15 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How was that going to grow Reddit? Reddit has experienced enormous growth over the last few years. A large percentage of content on Reddit is directly and indirectly related to learning. This site can learn a great deal from Reddit. I was attempting to emulate an extremely popular feature of Reddit here (which can be used for learning, research, and teaching), so that this site could potentially grow for the same excellent reason Reddit has related to learning - interviews (Reddit calls them AMA's Ask me anything). I hope you can figure out a way to be more welcoming to potential participants here on this site. Good luck. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 20:12, 15 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Starting a journal[edit source]

It's an interesting start you made at WikiJournal of Business and Economics. I've written some advice at: WikiJournal/Starting a journal. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 17:00, 1 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks! Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 02:44, 2 February 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Exciting to see interest in a new journal! Will articles be peer-reviewed before publication? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 03:20, 4 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What do you think of the idea of forming it into a slightly broader journal of Social Science, to include e.g. Law, History and Sociology? Broader scope may make it easier to ensure sufficient content and interest to keep different WikiJournals maintainable. I suspect that WikiJournals will survive best if there are a small number (3-6) broad academic disciplines. I realise that it might make finding suitable external experts for peer review more difficult though. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 08:26, 7 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Inactive Participants[edit source]

Please seek community input before listing additional users as active or inactive. There haven't been any active school contributors for a long time, but listing people as inactive has a different connotation than not listing participants at all. The community should have input on this. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 23:13, 30 September 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK. I will not use these templates anymore until community input is gathered. Feel free to gather the community input. I might too at some point in the future, before utilizing those templates and listing users and inactive. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 00:28, 1 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

acceptance of welcome[edit source]

I am greatly pleased by your conduct of affairs here at wikiversity. I got into this to garner as much knowledge as possible to pass my courses in the university under computer science. Thank you. Jerusalem Sabbath (discusscontribs) 06:11, 2 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Basic income cryptocurrency[edit source]

Hi Michael Ten!

Your resource Basic income cryptocurrency appears to be well-developed and ready for learners! Would you like to have it announced on our Main Page News? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:06, 12 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiJournal question[edit source]

Hi Michael,

I noticed there's not been much movement on the Preliminary WikiJournal of Business and Economics that you initiated. Is that still in progress?

Also, please take a look at the Sister project proposal at meta:WikiJournal and comment/support/oppose.

T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 04:23, 19 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Everything on wiki's are in progress. Correct? Cheers and Limitless Peace. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 07:24, 20 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Haha, true! Though I more meant is it progressing (as opposed to stalled). We're writing up a few applications at the moment for progressing the the journal group to a thematic organisation with and a full sister project platform for hosting (link), so I'm looking to know whether it's useful to include it in the applications. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 09:33, 20 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On quasi pause, ready for reactivation potentially, might properly describe its status. Hmmm. Cheers and Limitless Peace. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 00:05, 21 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Banking the unbanked[edit source]

Hi Michael Ten!

Your resource Banking the unbanked appears to be well-developed and ready for learners! Would you like to have it announced on our Main Page News? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:37, 4 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Seems good! Cielo Milagros. 🌞

Draft Redirects[edit source]

Content in the Draft namespace has been deemed as "not yet ready for main space listing". Redirects to Draft namespace from main space are not accepted. In this case, it is also a violation of the RFD discussion on Main Page "lectures". Please avoid redirects to Draft space in the future. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:25, 26 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia Readings[edit source]

I see that you created a section "Wikipeadia Readings" and moved that from "See also" to "Wikipedia Readings". Makes a lot of sense to me to do that in general. Would you recommend that for all learning resources in Wikiversity, even if there is just one resource?--Bert Niehaus (discusscontribs) 07:02, 26 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If there is just one link to Wikipedia? It seems maybe noting that it links to Wikipedia rather than Wikiversity might be ideal. Somehow, if it is not otherwise noted. Hmmmm. Cheers and serenity. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 03:41, 27 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nocat[edit source]

Draft resources are not categorized. Users restricted to Draft: space have tried to use this approach to bypass their restrictions.

Also, please note that adding {{Nocat}} makes it more difficult for others to add categories in the future. Nocat can't be removed using HotCat, and almost everyone who does significant category work at Wikiversity uses this tool. Please consider using Special:UncategorizedPages instead to identify pages needing categories, and add categories rather than adding Nocat.

Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:00, 1 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem. OK. Michael Ten (discusscontribs) 23:23, 1 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
