Talk:Waste

From Appropedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As someone who just found your wiki through a professional waste association's newsletter, and as someone who has written in other wikis, I was wondering what your processes were for deciding on topic pages, and how one could suggest an adjustment.

This page contains a useful link and discussion of how to set up a humanure system. However for a person searching under "waste" there are many more facets to the topic, such as reuse of waste items, recycling systems, composting, reduction in the consumption that leads to waste etc.

Would it be useful to design this page as a category or as a feeder page to indicate that articles could and should be written in these areas, and include the current article as a sub section/ new page? —The preceding comment was added by Risby (talkcontribs) 16:58, 6 May 2007 (PST)

Hi Risby,

You are absolutely correct, in fact the content of this page is not very useful nor rigorous... it definitely needs to be expanded. I think that your proposed Category:Waste would probably be a good subcategory right under the main category Construction and materials, but I would love to hear what you think. Please check out the other subcategories there and let us know. Thank you for your very useful observation. In addition, if you feel like making a swing at revising the content, please feel free to be BOLD and delete the current content.

Thank you, --Lonny 21:33, 8 May 2007 (PDT)

I redirected this to Category:Waste management. Thank you for your input. -Lonny 00:59, 22 May 2007 (PDT)
