Hi, thanks for using the UBC Wiki. I noticed that you created a page today called "Documentation/Wimba_Voice_Tools" I moved that page over to the documentation section by changing the forward slash to a colon. The new page is located at Documentation:Wimba_Voice_Tools. More information about adding pages to the Documentation space can be found at the documentation homepage.

I also noticed that you had set up a DPL command that wasn't working. I changed it so that it would list all pages (including subpages) in the Documentation space that had the word Wimba in the title. Please let me know if you have any questions. You can drop me a note on my user talk page. Will (User:WikiAdministrator)

Hi Z! How's the ankle?



Hi Zack,

I renamed the Wordpress Documentation pages to have a capital P by using the move function and then tweaking the dpl to match the new titles. Please let me know if that works or if can do anything else.

Hi Zack,

I'm not able to replicate any errors from my end - could you send me the pdf file you were trying to upload? Occasionally, I've seen trouble with pdf's if the file is partially corrupt but it might also have to do with how the file is being renamed when it gets uploaded. If you could send me the file, I'll take a closer look at it.

Hi Zack,

I fixed the dpl issue on the Respondus Quiz page. The error was due to the word Respondus being misspelled in the "Titlematch" string on the first line of the dpl.

Hi Zack,

I'm thinking about moving your new page (FNHL_Introduction_to_Social_Web_Tools) to the Course: namespace but wanted to check in with you before hand. Is that page being created as part of a course? Cheers,

Hi Zack,
Sorry for my slow reply. For presentations, there are a couple of different strategies that seem to work well. If it is just something you are doing for a limited audience, you can move them as a subpage of your username (ex - User:WikiAdministrator/Open_Access_Talk) or you can move it to the sandbox (which can be thought of as a personal workspace and where anything goes). If the presentation is something that you think would be beneficial to the broader UBC community, it should be in the mainspace of the wiki with a sentence or two introduction to give that page some context (i.e. something like "the following presentation on Social Media tools was presented to the First Nations House of Learning on x date by x person.").
Please let me know if that makes sense or if I can provide further info.

Hi Zack
Great - I'm glad that works. Sorry about the vagueness in the mainspace comment - I was just writing in shorthand, although I agree that we need to better describe the criteria for that space. The more official description is "The main space, or root, of this wiki is reserved for articles relating to UBC. It is primarily a community area for knowledge sharing about all aspects of the University. Mainspace pages should include introductions to provide context about how the topic of the article relates to UBC." I've been trying to push the idea that this is primarily a community space where no one "owns" any article and everyone is encouraged to edit every page. If you have any thoughts on how to tighten this up, I'd love to hear it.
