Learning WE - Talk pages

Fragment of a discussion from User talk:Wikirandy
Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Randy, yes, I'm on skype james_neill and happy to chat; BUT when testing out wikis I prefer to use the talk features on the wiki itself; partly as a record for my own learning (e.g., I've had useful IRC chats before but they leave little legacy content for my own and others' learning). It seems to me that the liquid thread stuff messes around the way the way message notification works; e.g., it seems to flag that I have messages when anything is added to a talk page associated with a page on my watchlist!? I'm concerned that if as an experienced wiki user I'm confused, that my students would find it even more confusing. What's your experience with using WE with students in this respect? -- Jtneill - Talk 00:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi James,

Yes, I understand....I think that the Liquid Threads is a bit buggy in places...I've found myself, that I get messages that are for the overall list, or in reply to something I've forgotten about....

Anyways, the thing is, if I can be of support to you, please don't hesitate - I'll do my best to help, and if I can't I will bring others in....

do yo have specific things that you would like to do, here on this wiki -I know you've talked about it....

- Randy
