- I like the category discussion template as a way to help us bring the project into focus -- it's obviously something we've struggled with and that was a great idea. Thanks very much for the added brainpower! Raymond King | talk 14:31, 18 October 2006 (EDT)
- If values like Pragmatism, Civility, Inclusion, Compromise, Transparency turn you on, please please please check on the Unity Movement.
I had to respond to this, because all those things do strike a chord with me. I'm not American and won't get involved in Unity08 but will watch with interest. I do occasionally check on the Campaigns Wikia and tell people about it. And I'm mainly involved with Appropedia, which is also about changing the world, but from a different angle.
- Appropedia looks really cool. The wiki brought back good college memories: Living in the student housing cooperative with the giant worm bin in the back yard... some housemates did a fresh water project in Tanzania and did a slide show when they got back. I'm almost tempted to look them up to pass the link on, and do a good deed both ways :-)

- Sounds like a cool housing coop. I have a vision that Appropedia would be the site that people would turn to when they're in a housing coop, or on a farm, or in a village somewhere, and want to find (or share) a way to do something that both increases their quality of life and is sustainable.
Sounds like these sites need to be on the ChicagoCoop.net WikiNode (except we don't have one yet)! I live in a housing co-op in Chicago and started that wiki. I haven't put any energy into it, however, so it's not really going anywhere yet. TedErnst | talk 14:04, 19 October 2006 (EDT)
Jennifer, really glad to see you back! Excellent work on the category system (again)! Just wanted to let you know my opinion about redlink categories. The way I see it, they're not broken, they're future links. I totally agree with you about vanity categories and at the same time, the only reliable way we'll know if there are 3 wikis in a same neighborhood in NYC is to let them each tag as a neighborhood and have those tags be redlinks until we know there are three. Feel free to move this comment elsewhere if you can think of a more suitable location, in case others also want to comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Thanks!

- Just to throw my two cents in. Dangling links / red links / future links, are extremely important because they invite future people to the wiki to participate. Best, MarkDilley
