Removing things to do?Edit

1 - Why did your bot remove this? —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 21:02, 29 December 2020 (UTC)

@Atcovi: Because of [1]. These things to do are ultimately an attempt to get someone else to violate Wikiversity:Requests for Deletion/Archives/16#Main Page "Lectures". They've been in place for a year and a half, and have yet to generate any helpful edits. They just lead to a newbie thinking that the content should be a main page when we've agreed that they should not. Even Marshallsumter had switched to moving them under Draft:Original research rather than trying to make them main page content. I've personally been tempted to just move them into user space, as I don't see any likelihood of them returning to main space again. They don't add value for anyone other than the original author. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 21:20, 29 December 2020 (UTC)


Thanks for the guidance, I remember that before that the word-type entries are resources page, and may have changed. How can I create Physics article? May I have an example. --Encore Melody (discusscontribs) 02:38, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

@Wasami007: My field is computers, so the example that comes to mind for me is Computer Programming. This shows how we can bring together and organize a large collection of content without overwhelming the user. I created a simple placeholder Physics page you can use to get started. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 02:54, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Google Summer of Code?Edit

Hi, Dave:

Have you considered applying for a Google Summer of Code intern?

Their deadline is February 19.

That link is for people working with R (programming language). However, you probably know Google's Summer of Code program better than I do. I would think that Google would be eager to fund projects to improve almost any major component of the Wikimedia system.
