Hi Kathy

Yes - I saw what you are doing and that is great - I put in a new link for the one I had a link for and deleted the others that were just dead links. I would ask, however, if possible when you delete the dead links only delete the links not the references that went with them as then we lose knowledge too. Someone can then go back and find a new open access link if they exist. Thanks for all your hard work - Joshua Pearce (talk) 10:29, 31 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thanks for edits![edit source]


Hi, Kathy Nativi - Welcome to Community action for sustainability wiki, and thanks for your recent edit or edits to our wiki articles! Philralph (talk) 17:53, 31 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Kathy, sorry but there are loads of old news templates no longer in use which ideally I would have got round to marking for deletion! You can check via 'what links here', left hand menu.

The current equivalent, just plain news articles, sometimes needing much redesign (but that's another story! no worries about that here!) can be found via CASwiki news.

It helps to include eg dead link removed (in place of any link removed from CASwiki articles).

Many thanks for all that you do! Philralph (talk) 17:53, 31 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

CASwiki links[edit source]

Hi Kathy, thanks for recent edits to links. Something strange appears to have happened with Food activism UK, large section of article removed, which I've put back, plus updated the first link (previously not found). Let me know if anything else needed to this. Sometimes updated links can be found relatively easily just with a bit of searching. This and perhaps quite a few other CASwiki food activism articles could do with a better layout, but that's just one of those things I never seem to find the time to get started on! best wishes Philralph (talk) 08:46, 11 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Automatic wikitext standardization[edit source]

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I just replaced the normalization tool (the little magic wand) with a more robust tool that fixes wikitext automatically every time you (or anyone) saves a page. More details at Appropedia:Village pump#Automatic wikitext standardization, cheers! Sophivorus (talk) 14:46, 10 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Big categories[edit source]

Kathy -- please don't cut our group's main pages down to nothing - they are our major navigators. - - Joshua Pearce (talk) 10:23, 23 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Joshua! I understand your concern. The changes were made to refine content and minimize errors in the "Category" section. But to preserve the content during this process, I've created a dedicated page with it. Kathy Nativi (talk) 13:50, 23 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I reverted all of our live categories that we are still contributing to and using on a daily basis - as pulling the content out of the pages that are cats substantially less useful. It does not seem to impact performance even if there is an error somewhere -- I left all the ones you did for pages/cat that are no longer active.--Joshua Pearce (talk) 18:08, 23 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
