Moved your new pages

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Justin,

Thanks for using the UBC Wiki. As part of an effort to better organize the UBC Wiki, we're moving pages to the appropriate section of the wiki. The goal of this process is to make information on the UBC Wiki easier to find. I renamed your new pages so they use the following protocol: Documentation:Instructional Designer Community of Practice/Page1, Documentation:Instructional Designer Community of Practice/Page2, etc.

Your newly created pages were in the the root, or Main Space, of the wiki. This namespace is primarily a shared community space and articles in this section should be encyclopedic in nature, appeal to a broad audience, and be reflective of UBC. Articles in the main space should start with an introductory sentence describing what the page is about as this space is syndicated. Finally, pages in the mainspace belong to the wiki community and we encourage anyone edit them. Having a page with an ambiguous title like "Page1" doesn't reallly work in the Main Space as many different people and project might have a "Page1". Please see Help:Namespaces for more information on what types of pages go where.

The Documentation namespace is reserved for user manuals, documentation, support and other similar content. Similarly, the Sandbox can be thought of as a notebook/workspace and it's a great space for personal projects. Outside editing of articles or pages in the documentation space or sandbox space less encouraged. Finally, pages in the Sandbox or Documentation space can be structured hierarchically using subpages. MediaWiki will automatically add navigation links between child and parent pages.

Please see Help:Moving a page for more information on how to move or rename a page and UBC_Wiki:Community_Policies#Organization_Policies for more info about organizational policies. Finally, if you have a non-wiki site linking to your pages, you might want to update the links to the new URL.

Please let me know if I can provide further info or help out with anything.
