​I see you predict the future. Anyway, I assume the people on this list
are often the kind of people who would want to squirel away their own
private copy, while they can. I know I have.​

[Wikimedia-l] dmoz.org

I see dmoz.org is going offline in few days after a couple decades. It is a
community-written project. Will it be absorbed into wikidata? Sort of a
snapshot-in-time of the web. Get it while you can, at  http://rdf.dmoz.org/

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Why are articles being deleted?

2016-06-26 Thread carl hansen
Mitar,
To get a deleted article back, ask an "Administrator" to move it to your
User_page draft
space so you can get your text/references . The text is still in the
system, just not accessible to public. There should be no
problem. You could even ask the Administrator who deleted it, via Talk page
, or make request at
Wikipedia:Community_portal

Brill Lyle, normally connecting real world identity with Wikipedia id
within wikipedia
is contrary to local ethos, but since Mitar links to his real page from
User page, it's ok in this case.

You have been hit by crossfire in the long running Inclusionist vs.
Deletionist war.
Your rant is an excellent exposition of the Inclusionist position. When I
travel among
Random Articles I often wonder why they deleted AAA but they leave this
BBB. I guess
the explanation of that is the sprawling size of English WP, there too much
to curate
satisfactorily. Currently I'd say the Deletionists are winning.

I hope that doesn't discourage you from wikipedia. Also, consider
contributing to http://wikinfo.org  , concept is similar but the rules are
different, more willing to accept polemics and non-neutrality

[Wikimedia-l] any open search engine for web project starting

2016-03-18 Thread carl hansen
https://about.commonsearch.org/

"We are building a nonprofit search engine for the Web"

Sounds alot like Knowledge Engine, if there were such a thing.
Any overlap with wikimedia projects?
