Question; where do interviewed people live? I suspect most of them are US-cititzens? What cultural bias will that give in the interviews and their results?. JaapB 06:00, 22 October 2009 (UTC)


unreadable

All the interviews provided as PDF are unreadable. Happy to provide a screenshot when requested. Thanks, 77.250.53.164 22:55, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Odd, they're showing fine for me... can you mail a screenshot to philippe at wikimedia.org? -- Philippe 23:30, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

PDFs

The pdf format makes it slower and more difficult to look through the interviews. I think these would be more helpful in wiki format. I realize that editing of the interviews is not wanted, but it is possible to protect the pages and disallow editing. Aude 02:55, 19 November 2009 (UTC)

I fully support going wiki-format. Dont allow editing of the pages themselves, but DO ALLOW talk pages for comments on each interview.--Kozuch 19:08, 22 November 2009 (UTC)
Has anybody said the interviews can't be copy-and-pasted onto wiki pages, if the pages were afterwards locked? I sympathize with interviewees not wanting to have their words edited/vandalized, but at the same time I agree the interviews would be much more useful and more-used if they were easier to discover.

Are the interviews copyrighted or does CC-BY of this wiki apply to them? There is no note of licencing within the files. --Kozuch 09:33, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Discussing PDFs

Dont be affraid to discuss the PDFs on their talk pages!!!--Kozuch 19:24, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

Discussing on the talk pages is fine. Still, PDFs are not great for me. Being in the US, I still don't by any means have the fastest internet (usb modem) or fastest computer (5+ years old), though I can still do 95% of tasks just fine. I can do PDFs, but it's much more of a chore, plus the PDF reader software is not great. Looking through wiki pages is much faster and easier to take in the information.

I've got them ALMOST all converted to wikitext now :) ~Philippe 10:07, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
