Copyright and Categories[edit source]

Hi Doaa

Great start but you have to be very careful with appropedia -- you can not post anything that is copyrighted -- everything has to be GNU FDL. We might want to meet again briefly to talk about it. Please have a look over what you have done and make the appropriate changes.

Also we will want to set up some categories for your work so they are appropriately organized within appropedia.

I did it here - you can make a sub category by

  1. Search for Category:your concept name
  2. Create it
  3. In the text put [[Category:Green chemistry]]

If you click edit in then you will see how I did it.

Good luck --Joshua 12:16, 11 April 2008 (PDT)

deleting pages[edit source]


You can't delete pages -- you can either wait for an administrator to get around to it, email one, or the quickest option is to use the move tab to move that page to a new page you are going to create.--Joshua 13:20, 11 April 2008 (PDT)

Hi Doaa,
You can also type {{Delete|Type the reason for deletion here}}, and an administrator will get to it faster. --Lonny 17:49, 11 April 2008 (PDT)
