Copying Wikipedia Content[edit source]

Hi Ioakar,

It is great to have you here. We generally try to avoid cutting and pasting a lot of wikipedia content into Appropedia. Appropedia is less for encyclopedic content and more for actual projects, how tos, etc. Including a little background (encyclopedic) information works well, but then we can use {{Wikipedia}} to link to more encyclopedic content. I hope that makes sense.

Also, I saw that you are interested in making a Greek version of Appropedia. Is that still the case?

Thank you and welcome! --Lonny 03:26, 20 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Some thoughts on the Greek version of Appropedia:

Firstly, that's wonderful!

Key steps are:

  • We'd love to hear more of your ideas. One way is that you could leave a note at the Village Pump. Or you could write on your userpage: User:Ioakar
  • Note that Appropedia already seems to cope with Greek letters: Appropedia:Sandbox#Greek alphabet?
  • Start the pages you want to. Add a suitable category, e.g. Category:Greek or the Greek language equivalent.
  • When there is a good number of pages, we can look at a separate subdomain. In the meantime, a good Greek landing page on Appropedia will serve as a kind of main page for the Greek Appropedia.

How does that sound? Looking forward to hearing from you again.

Our standard greeting follows, with some links that might be useful. --Chriswaterguy 08:46, 29 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
