What do folks think about changing Wiki Topic to Topic. I am not sure, wiki topic is a bit more descriptive, yet topic is just more direct...MarkDilley

I support the change. Also for languages, edits modes, etc. TedErnst | talk 23:30, 20 May 2006 (EDT)
I agree, that's easier --Raymond King | talk 03:51, 21 May 2006 (EDT)

Ted, what do you mean for languages, edit modes, etc. Ridding ourselves of the prefix/postfix wiki? MarkDilley

This is cat wiki topic. We also have wiki engine, wiki language and wiki edit mode. I like them all to be paralell so if we change wiki topic to topic, I recommend we change the others as well. Also wiki people, perhspa? TedErnst | talk 02:22, 22 May 2006 (EDT)

Been thinking about this, still not clear if we should proceed... So Category:Wiki language would be Category:Language... MarkDilley

Another thought, a friend of mine suggested that since the wiki name was WikiIndex, that the category for topics might be - I think these things sorta go together... MarkDilley

hmmm, mightn't the items in that category currently, be in a more clear namespace. One shared by many wiki? hmmm...
  • Proposals - idea to just tag, then next step might be to formalize them on their own proposal page.

Wanted categories etc

This is more of what I was looking for a few minutes ago when I edited [[Talk:WikiIndex:Wiki project - Categories and tags]]. Doesn't answer the questions though! Robin Patterson 17:13, 21 April 2007 (PDT)


It doesn't feel to me that two spam edits this year warrants a protection of the page. Best, MarkDilley

Film Movies Video same thing?

Noticed WikiIndex has Category:Film, Category:Movies and Category:Video but they seem like the same thing to me (and WikiIndex pages don't seem to say what the difference(s) are. --EarthFurst (talk) 14:36, 11 September 2016 (PDT)
