"could be a place to collaborate on planning projects" <-- so are comments from others welcome or not? --JWSchmidt 18:55, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Comments are always welcome. But it is probably better to have pages outside User: namespace to collaborate on planning projects. So, I copied my First thoughts (mostly on astronomy learning) from the blog to a better location at Observational astronomy/Planning. If you'd like to collaborate on any of the other entries in the blog, post a comment to one of the talk pages and then we can figure out the best place to create a group effort to develop the ideas.--mikeu 21:39, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
Okay. I just want to encourage people to allow comments on Wikiversity blogs. --JWSchmidt 21:48, 27 January 2007 (UTC)
I think that would be a good idea. I added a line to the blog stating that I encourage people to leave comments by editing this page.--mikeu 15:20, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Do you have any interest in History resources/Schools of History? ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 22:00, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

I'm very interested in the history of science and technology. I do sometimes include broader topics in history, but mostly to give context to the science history. It looks like we have quite a few resource in Category:History of Science, but I don't see a main page for the topic. Category:History of Technology has just one lonely stub. What did you have in mind? --mikeu talk 22:25, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Like... history of countries (Chinese History, US History, American History etc.) ---Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 22:26, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

A Wikiversity Journal along the lines of this blog?[edit]

It occurred to me that a non-academic journal along the lines of this blog might work as a Wikiversity Journal. I would suggest that you first solicit article submissions, and also wait for my construction Second Journal of Science to settle down before deciding. By the "settling down", I am referring to templates such as {{List entry/1}} and the sortable table at Second Journal of Science/Past issues/A. I think the sortable table is a significant improvement, but it is currently buried deep in a subpage. This might take months to sort out because I have other things to do. But it is something to ponder in the meantime: A news and commentary journal edited by you might be worth having.--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 11:56, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

That's an interesting idea. What do you think of something in the format of GLAM/Newsletter (Galleries • Libraries • Archives • Museums) or Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost? It's not so much that I prefer a newsletter format, but we could have MassMessage deliver a summary of the contents to subscriber talk pages. It could be a "This month in learning at Wikiveristy" kind of thing. We could use it highlight Wikiversity:Featured content and ask that contributors reflect on the projects that they are working on. --mikeu talk 18:17, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
