Barriers to Quality at Wikipedia (and potentially other Wiki projects)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

I might try my hand at something similar on content quality, with a view to seeing if it can inform or integrate into it. I hope it compliments, rather than tangents, that approach -- quality is a big word! :)

MissionInn.Jim, perhaps a link to the Wiki Eugene/Philippe set up rather than including the text wholesale on your wiki? this way, edit once, everything updates.

FT2, good idea about content quality! perhaps a what is working, what isnt working, recommendations, summations/inclusion of ideas from this dialogue? a similar format may help to keep it readable for people coming in new to this.

I think the content quality wiki should be linked somehow to the Barriers Wiki so it shows we are addressing the content issues, i.e. breath of content, etc.

Could someone work on something akin to a "culture" wiki that might start to cull the comments on this discussion regarding admins, rating contributors/editors, etc.? that will show we are addressing issues regarding making the culture more amenable to new users and offsetting deficits in the culture as exists. Any takers?

Eventually I see all these different wikis linked together and underpinning our recommendations as a group re: Quality.

Started Task force/Wikipedia Quality/Content quality. Will review this page and summarize the issues there to resume from where it got up to.

Part of the reason I put it in its own wiki page is because people can work on it independently of the barriers page. I'm OK with combining the two, but then we would need another name for the "Barriers to quality" wiki page. It would no longer be just "Barriers to Quality". Having them separate we can start a discussion about on that page's own discussion page. I am finding that when I call up this discussion page, it can take several minutes and several warning messages to get it displayed. It is very annoying to have to wait so long. Everytime something is added, it seems to take longer.

MissionInn.Jim:

Just link to the Barriers page, you can still continue to work on your threads separately. My concern is that the Barriers information will be posted in several different places with the challenge of revision control.

Oh and I forgot, I am having the same problem with the page loading and had to turn off checking scripts on this page for it to open on its own without my intervention.

Anyone know why this slow down with LT may be happening when it handles more information?

The magic of transclusion can help with that... instead of reposting the info, just use {{:Barriers to quality}} and then it's actually displaying the info from the original page. :)
