Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours

  • Hi Deryk, I've been working on subcategorising all of the category pages related to countries into the main category: Category:Countries. The collection is very impressive.
In collecting all of these pages, I came across two categories for Trinidad and Tobago:
  1. Category:Trinidad_and_Tobago
  2. Category:Republic_of_Trinidad_&_Tobago
We would like to have only one main category for each country, so that all of the members and resources related to a country can be collected in one place.
In talking with others from Trinidad and Tobago, the thought is to keep Category:Republic_of_Trinidad_&_Tobago, moving all of the pages linked to the other category into this one. This would mean changing the category on this (your user) page.
If you have any thoughts on this change please include them as a reply to this discussion post.
Thanks so much, --Alison Snieckus 19:11, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

(Comment.gif: Deryk, Hi, I would move the practice of templates into your sandbox, so your front page of your user page looks clean. Go to "edit" on your user page, cut out the "practicing templates" part, Save the page below. Now go to your 'Sandbox', open the "edit" tab again, and pase the content again, then save the page. Done. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 00:52, 31 January 2010 (UTC))

(Comment.gif: Dear Deryk, With a little bit more work on your page, I can certify you higher. I know time can run away from us. Feel free to write to me when you are ready and/or ask any questions. I'll be happy to help or have a look. Warm wishes --Patricia Schlicht 00:49, 31 January 2010 (UTC))
