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 MusciBrainz can stay in the 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 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. MoinMoin has an AntiSpamGlobalSolution against the latter.
The following is a semi-structured list. I derive this mostly from WikiHome, from the current MainSite. Ideally it should be possible to cluster this and this should then give an idea of the new MainSiteStructure. While compiling this list I relaized that my statement that the wiki is unstrucured is not true: The wiki generally has the superior strucure when compared to the main site or the deprectated WikiDocs.--DonRedman
- FrequentlyAskedQuestions or http://www.musicbrainz.org/wd/FAQIndex
- All pages of* MusicBrainzForums or http://www.musicbrainz.org/wd/ContactUs i.e. Where can I reach you, where can I get help
- MusicBrainzWiki i.e a page that describes the function of the wiki.
- MailingList and http://www.musicbrainz.org/list.html
- A page about the Blog/News system (I don't think there is one, yet)
- SourceForge i.e. a page about our source forge page (what we use it for and what not).
- IRC (this should be renamed MusicBrainzChat or something like this, since it does not deal with IRC in general, but with our IRC)
- MusicBrainz or http://www.musicbrainz.org/wd/AboutMusicBrainz
- ModeratorPrivacy or http://www.musicbrainz.org/privacy
- People: http://www.musicbrainz.org/bio.html or Category Person (hmm, how do you do that?)
- * StyleCouncil or currently http://www.musicbrainz.org/wd/OfficialStyleGroup
- A page that summarizes http://www.musicbrainz.org/about/licenses.html and http://www.musicbrainz.org/contract.html and perhaps http://www.musicbrainz.org/about/logos.html and the very good blog entry by Robert
- StyleGuideline and http://www.musicbrainz.org/style.html
- EditingGuideline or http://www.musicbrainz.org/mod_intro.html (but avoiding BadTerminology) and content from the old InformationOnEditing.
- 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 ModeratedRevisionTable --DonRedman * AdvancedRelationships (once this has stabilzed and only if we have troubles with vandals all the subpages) * EditType (but IMO not the edit type pages themeselves) * ... * MusicBrainzTerminology ** probably all pages of Category Terminology
