#REDIRECT [[WikiDocs]]
[[Image:Attention.png]] ''This page lists all wiki pages that should be part of the initial [[WikiDocs]] launch and listed in the [[Moderated Revision Table|ModeratedRevisionTable]]''
[[WikiDocs]] is curently live on the [[Test Server|TestServer]] only. The [http://test.musicbrainz.org/edit/wikitransclusion/transclusion.html Transclusion Table] will be migrated to the main server with the next release.
==General Issues==
To decide which pages nedd to be moderated I ask myself two questions:
* What pages are relevant to a newcomer to [[MusicBrainz]]? These are the pages that should be moderated. Pages that are only relevant to people who are already accustomed to [[MusicBrainz]] can stay in the [[MusicBrainz Wiki|MusicBrainzWiki]] and do not need to be moderated, since a member of the [[MusicBrainz]] community can (or should learn to) retrieve informaiton from the wiki.
* What pages reflect an official position of the [[MusicBrainz]] project? The responsible persons need to have some control over these pages, thus they need to be moderated.
Generally I try to have as few pages in the [[Moderated Revision Table|ModeratedRevisionTable]] as possible. I think we should start out low. We can always add more pages later if we get problems with spammers and vandals. [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] has an [http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/AntiSpamGlobalSolution AntiSpamGlobalSolution] against the latter.
==Migration Guideline==
When converting an old static page into a [[WikiDocs]] page, make sure, that:
* The [[WikiDocs]] page has a ''really [[Good WikiName|GoodWikiName]]''. [[WikiDocs]] pages ''cannot'' be renamed, so you'll have to get it right from the start.
* Preserve all links: Make sure the new [[WikiDocs]] page contains all links that the old static page had. This is important because otherwise you could cut off a part of the documentation.
* [[Wiki Docs Pages|WikiDocsPages]] ''must never be renamed''. Therefore they should all have the following ACL line: 
<ul><li style="list-style-type:none"><pre>## DontRenameWikiDocsPages! #acl -All:delete Default</pre>
</ul>A member of the [[Admin Group|AdminGroup]] will have to add this for you.
==Pages to Become WikiDocs Pages==
'''Status:''' ''I am currently reworking the list into a table that shows which content is where.''
Initially I started a semi-structured list with the idea of creating a new [[Main Site Structure|MainSiteStructure]]. But now we first need an overview about the status quo, and the structure created by [[User:Keschte|Keschte]] is pretty good to start with. See also [[MusicBrainz Documentation|MusicBrainzDocumentation]] and even more importantly [[Restructuring The Documentation|RestructuringTheDocumentation]] for some prior work on this (especially proposed [[Wiki Name|WikiName]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s). This table follows the structure of the new top menu bar:

** [[SourceForge]] i.e. a page about our source forge page (what we use it for and what not).

<ul><li style="list-style-type:none">It is my understanding that very few of the actual documentation needs to be moderated. Ideally those pages that give a structured introduction to all pages which document a certain feature should be moderated, but these actual pages should not. It is enough that the introductory page declares that the rest is maintaned by the wiki community. ''Only if'' we experience vandalism, should we add all these pages to the [[Moderated Revision Table|ModeratedRevisionTable]] --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]
* [[Advanced Relationships|AdvancedRelationships]] (once this has stabilzed and ''only if'' we have troubles with vandals all the subpages)
* [[Edit Type|EditType]] (but IMO not the edit type pages themeselves)

** probably all pages of Category Terminology
