Organizing your new pages

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Sina,

Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately, our namespaces are mainly limited to Course, Documentation, User, and Sandbox and we are not instituting any new ones at this point (your Phase Field Model page is still in the main space of the wiki).

Based on your response that the new pages are for multi-person projects, I think it would be fine to leave them where they are. However, making the titles more specific would be useful. For example, "International Development" is a pretty broad title/subject and can apply to many things at UBC but "Engineers Without Borders International Development Project" is very narrowly focused.

Another thought would be to move the pages to the Documentation space and organized them hierarchically (the main space doesn't allow subpages). In the Documentation space, you could create a top level page called something like: Documentation:Engineers Without Borders or Documentation:Phase Field Model. You could then add new pages as subpages - the wiki software will automatically add navigation links from subpages to their parent pages making it easier for user to navigate. For example, a sub page could be called Documentation:Phase Field Model/Friction Force and it would automatically link back to the top level page.

Please let me know if either of those options appeal - I can help move or rename pages as well.
