Hey, welcome to the talk page Andrew 10:52, 9 February 2011 (PST)
wholly cow, you're already tackling table formatting! Impressive Ray
Hi, I take it you are an editor on the project. I am Muhammad Ali Khalid, you checked a few of my articles. I just wanted to tell that if you find some error in my articles, you can put a comment on Articles needed page in front of that specific article, like you did for "Robin Gross" article. I will check your comments and then notify you when I have fixed the article.
Yeah, I used to do the same thing, reading the sources and then rewording, but lately, I noticed that it was kind of allowed here, like in the Debbie Monahan or the Debbie Garside articles. Most of the articles were already this way on icannwiki.org, so I copied and formatted them. Anyways, I will fix the text and notify you. Would probably do it tomorrow or the day after that and leave you a message here on your discussion page.
Hi, I have edited the text in the articles, you can start checking them. Muhammad Ali Khalid
Twitter above KeyPeople
done ... I think, let me know if it's working properly Ray
really nice job with these articles! Ray
strangely, I see John Nevett's pic on this page? I think it might be because we used John as the demo data in the people template and Abyss may have copied that and then forgot to modify it ... Ray
Hi Caterina, We have posted a glossary article ADR. Please check it and assist us if there are any changes needed in formatting and presentation. And also whether any content changes are required in it.Saassoln
Sorry I saw the comment in the articles needed section after I posted the message to you. We are working on the changes you have mentioned.
Regarding the ADR article. The gTLD-MOU source link works fine on our side when we click on it from the reference section. This is the link we referred to while writing about gTLD-MOU in ADR http://www.gtld-mou.org/docs/dispute.html. The page has one paragraph saying gTLD-MOU uses ADRs for dispute resolution and also this link was referred from http://gnso.icann.org/acronyms.html which prompted us to include information from the page.
Relating to ACPs, we could not find much information on the topic. This is the reason why we did not start with the topic which is first in our list. the gTLD-MOU page referred above have some links to WIPO pages under section "From WIPO" describing ACP rules but these links are broken like the other links on WIPO having information on ACP.
We are still searching for information on the topic. Can you suggest some sources from where we can find relevant information on ACP and write the article.
We would be highly obliged if you could help us. Thankyou
We are replacing the ACP article, on which we could not find much info, with VOIP. we will mark "Not enough information" in the articles needed section beside ACP. and will mark "Saassoln" beside VOIP topic so that it will be clear that we are posting it.
We also wanted to ask you whether we can add images in the articles. We have created organization structure of APNG of .png format and want to include it in the article. can we upload the image by creating a new page with the following link:
Yes, I guessed that was the reason for my work not being checked. I was a bit confused about the formatting with the headings as different articles have different headings. However, now I will follow the pattern that you have mentioned. Should I change the headings to the same pattern for all the articles in the previous batch or you can do that while editing. It won't be a problem for me to change the headings for all the articles in that batch. Muhammad Ali Khalid
While working on an article, I just noted that we have the Charles Shaban article on the site, but on the AGIP page, his name is written as Charles Sha'ban and on another place on the same page it is Charles Chaban, both of which are not on this wiki. You might want to fix this conflict and interlink the pages. I think the correct name is Charles Sha'ban Muhammad Ali Khalid
Also, Khaled Battash is also a part of AGIP, so you might want to put that name into the AGIP page as well.
There are 8 articles remaining in our batch. There are two articles AIRA and EuroInternet on which we could not find much information. We will replace these two from any two of the heavily linked terms batch.
We will make the changes to the articles you have checked once we complete the whole batch. By then you can review the remaining ones and tell us which of them need changes.
About the first two articles we had made changes to ADR the first time you had asked for changes. And we have replaced ACP with VoIP. Please check these two also and tell us if any further changes are required.
Can you please specify the sections you think are not appropriate in AFNIC or should we make changes to all the sections written. Thank you.
There are some articles on which did not get much info. They are AIRA, DeNIC, ENRED, EuroInternet and iOPS.ORG. As you said earlier we can replace such articles by the heavily linked terms section. We are posting one article APTLD. Can we go ahead with 4 others also from the heavily linked terms? Thanks, Saassoln
Okay. Thanks.. Muhammad Ali Khalid
No problem.. I used the history tab and copied the edits to my user page.
We are posting one article just now and will post another within a few hours. We have other writer who has started on batch 2. We will also make the changes to the articles you have checked.
Sponsor Logo Template
I'm thinking that even if we need to show differentiation between the larger sponsors and smaller ones, the logo's for the larger ones are really large and maybe we can bring those down a bit in size? Ray
we're stepping on each others toes! i'll remove my welcome as i put it on his user page. shouldn't you be asleep!? Andrew
Hi Caterina, I just noticed a few errors on CENTR page, as you are working on it so thought to let you know. There are several people who have there are articles on the site but because of incorrect names, they are not interlinked. Like in the first table it is Alizera Saleh, his correct name is Alireza Saleh, Isak N. Jacobsen, has his article under Isak Jacobson and Leslet Cowley is actually Lesley Cowley. Thanks Muhammad Ali Khalid 01:40, 10 April 2011 (PDT)
Forwarding Links on ICANNWiki.org
Tehreem made a good point here about how missing forwarding links can cause new writers to do unnecessary work. We should probably modify the work description and maybe also have someone go through the balance on ICANNWiki.org again. We can do this when we meet today. Ray
Cat, you might let other writers know about the spiffy new company template! Ray
- I figured you were probably ahead of me on that :)
batch 1 edit
Hi Caterina, we have edited some of the articles from batch 1 and have 9 remaining to be edited. You might have noticed that we have marked the ones edited. We will rework the URL article as you said it is unclear. For AFNIC you mentioned many sections are unclear. Can you please specify which sections needs to be reworked. Thanks, Saassoln
i dunno why i anticipated that image import to be more difficult than it was. thanks though.
Thanks!!! for editing AFNIC. We are making the corrections to the other articles. Sorry for the delay. We have added a line about spectrum in FCC. We have one doubt, you have grouped the approved edited articles at the top of the list. But some of the articles still have the under construction image in them. For example, ADR and IAHC.Saassoln
Hi, I spoke to Ray that we will not include stubs in the articles of regular batches. So, I have changed my page a bit. I will put all the articles under the section "Working" while I am working on them. When I am done with the articles I will move them to section "Being Checked". When the editors check the articles, I will move the regular articles to a "batch" and the stubs to to the section "stub". I hope this is making sense. Let me know if you want to change it. Thanks Muhammad Ali Khalid
batch 1 edit
Hi Caterina, We tried to make the strategic areas section in ETSI more clearer. The problem is that the source has only this much info on the three points. As you can see here etsi.org. The ETSI business plan link on this page which may have more info on the topics is password protected so we could not access it. We hope the edited part is clear enough. Thank you Saassoln
I have noted both the points, will be careful about them. Muhammad Ali Khalid
Just wanted to inform you that I have completed some more articles, you can check them when you get time Muhammad Ali Khalid
errors in 3rd batch
I am back on the project and started working on the 4th batch.
I have started fixing errors in my previous batch as well. Hope to finish it by tomorrow.
Thanks - User:pulasthi
Hi Caterina, We are facing problems with the new editor (edit mode) used for posting articles. These problems did not appear in the earlier editor. If something can be done to solve these problems it will be helpful else you can discard this message.
- Most prevalent problem is the new line character which the editor discards once posted. And when we copy from other text editors such as word, all the content comes on one line discarding the new line characters. This creates problem because we have to format the document again after posting to take new paragraphs on the next line.
- other problem is when we copy a line the cursor moves out of the editor when it should be next to the line pasted.Saassoln
Can you please recheck the articles with which you marked issues previously. I put a fixed after the message, once I fix the issue that the editors mark. When you recheck the articles and find that they are good, please removed the entire message in front of it and just leave your signature, so that I can move them to the appropriate sections. Thanks. Muhammad Ali Khalid 11:04, 28 April 2011 (PDT)
Hi Caterina, As per the style guidelines given to all the writers we need to wipe the old pages from icannwiki.ORG and create links to the new icannwiki.COM. We tried to create one but it is not accepting the our current username and password for editing the article. please assist. Regarding the company template. We did not know how to import the template so copied we copied it from your CENTR article. We used the template in NTIA and NSI in batch 2. Correct us if any mistake. Also we are confused what category to assign to the articles. since we are writing glossary articles we are categorizing every article as glossary. Hope that is OK.
Please check the edited articles from batch 1 and tell us whether any further changes are required. Saassoln
Was going through your articles from SF to add ICANN Staff where appropriate, and I found that the photos are not working for the following people, unsure how to fix: Geoffrey Manne, Maria Dangond, Garret Murai. Andrew
dreyfus in sponsor box
links to the logo currently...
We apologize for the low activity. One of our lead writer was not well for 4 days; he is back now and will be starting the pending work. We have three articles written but were not posted. we will be posting them in a few moment. Sorry for the inconvenience. Saassoln
We have encountered two acronyms that have more than one full form. We searched in the same acronym database used for batch 1: http://www.andalucia.com/icann/ Just want to confirm the following full forms of the two acronyms OSC - Operations Steering Committee POC - gTLD-MoU Policy Oversight Committee
Also is OARC (Operations, Analysis, & Research Center) the same as on this page https://www.dns-oarc.net/
- OK Thanks
Love how you do the transparent logos and how you balanced out the new ones!
We used the same CompanyInfo template you specified the last time. We hope we are referring it right. here is the link http://icannwiki.com/index.php/Template:CompanyInfo and there are total 18 fields to be filled.
- OH YES!!! We copied from your Centr article at start. We will sweep through the previous posts and will correct the issue.
Checking second batch
Hi Caterina and Andrew,
We have completed most of the articles from our second batch. We will complete the remaining ones in a week or two. Can you please check the the ones completed and inform us if any changes are needed. Thank you. Saassoln
Hi Caterina, Three of the topics do not have information on them. These are NCPH, PDEPDP, and STI-DT. We tried to find information on these topics but were not able to find any information. Other topics, except Alternate Root Server, have little information on them, we can write about 200 words on these topics. Is it alright if we do that? Thanks for your support. Saassoln
Why was the page for Functional SLD deleted? Andrew
We tried to write on NCPH but ended up writing only a few lines. Check the article and if it is not enough kindly replace with other topic. Also Please replace the PDEPDP and STI-DT articles. Thank you. Saassoln
Hi Caterina, No problem with the changes in the batch. Thanks! Marie
Grouping similar references from the article
We have noticed that you have removed the name attribute form the ref tags which resulted in same link being displayed multiple times in the reference section. For example, 5th and 6th reference in TMC is the same pdf link. We had grouped the two using "name" attribute in the "ref" tag. Example of its use can be seen in PDP-WT where 2nd link is used twice in the article.
Should we not group the same links in articles?
Thank you. Saassoln
Was there a particular theme for the spades that you put together?
One topic in our second batch POC is edited by MARIE. She just added the under construction image. Should we work on it or is it assigned to Marie? Also is the topic similar to iPOC which we wrote in batch 1? Thank you. Saassoln
Dunno. It was created back in March, so it wasn't someone from ICANN Singapore... I don't know where I was going with this, but I'll either build the article or delete following some further research. He seems like a linguist, and is a former ICANN fellow.
Re: Spam, there was the two you marked as not being spammers that I had deleted. I deleted them after they created an account and did not use the account for an entire day, was there anything other than the fact that their names didn't follow the pattern of the other mass spammers to lead you to believe that they are not spammers? Andrew
HEXONET User Talk
Thanks for the note and explanation. I was successful in updating HEXONET profile from your suggestions. Thanks again and I will ensure our page is up to date every quarter.
The wording is wrong according to GNSO website "PARTY" singular, not 'PARTIES'.....Andrew
pshht. YOU'RE grammatically correct.
not trying to step on toes but I'm changing some things back. Like creating a blank link (as of now) to Constituency, I think there needs to be an article detailing the basic structure of the constituency in relationship to SG and WG, which also have their own pages. Andrew
mmm. good point.
Also one article from first batch GPML is remaining to be edited. We have tried 2-3 times to edit it but were not able to add any considerable information. We will try once more and will inform you if we find any relevant content.
We suppose, everything from the second batch is done. Only one article is remaining to be checked by you. Please let us know if you need any addition in it.
Thank you. Saassoln
Thank you for the payment and assisting us in writing the articles. We are extremely sorry for the delay in completing the articles. Thank you for all your help.
Best Regards, Saassoln
Thanks for the Information. Marie
Hi Caterina, I just want to let you know that my articles are ready for editing. Thanks Marie
No worries, I can wait. Thank you so much for editing and for giving me another batch. Have a great time at the conference. Again, Thanks!!! :)Marie
Hi Caterina! Andrew told me that you might be checking my batch 3 so I just want to let you know that I am done with it and you can start checking. Tehreem
OK I can wait! Just send me an email when Andrew or you start checking it...
Hi Caterina, Thank you for the reminder. Marie
Thank you very much for editing my articles :) Marie
Bonjour Caterina c'est avec un grand plaisir que j'ai lu le premier message suite à la publication de ma premiére page. Je voudrais savoir si vous avez un intérêt pour le protocole IPV6. Si oui je voudrais bien partager avec vous vos expériences car ici au Sénégal le protocole n'est pas encore trop connu du grand public. Merci infiniment
Hi Caterina, I don't have a problem with the changes. It's easy to create pages. Just let me know which ones are the most important so I could prioritize writing the articles.Marie
Got it. Thanks! Marie
No problem :)Marie
it seems resellerbazaar is supposed to be all one word lower case...(?) which is kind of frustrating given that we can't force a page to begin with a lowercase letter Andrew
cool, i was only looking at their website, and didn't notice a camelcase version.. also, there website is full of typos so it makes sense that they wouldn't be consistent.
failed link, not sure I can dig it up now, but apparently it was interesting. OH! it was that court claiming it had jurisdiction over ICANN, related to a UDRP case. I'll look for it again. Andrew
Batch 6--Ready for Editing
Hi Caterina, I just want to inform you that my articles are ready for editing. Thanks! Marie
I think it makes sense to leave a TOC in when there is info down the page re: new gTLDs. Really it doesn't get in the way despite aesthetic preferences and it doesn't hurt to highlight our new gTLD content as it is the most timely and relevant. Andrew
Batch 7 Ready for Editing
Hi Caterina, I just want to inform you that my articles are ready for editing. Thanks :) Marie
Update on ICANN Articles
Hello there, many thanks for your feedback on the articles. I have written up to Article 15 in full at the minute, however i am looking to finish another 5 tonight which are partially complete. If i am honest i am struggling a little with the content as there is only one good source is the ICANN Website which shows the past meetings and agendas. for myself who knows little about ICann it is hard to make out what the topics on the agendas for the meetings are about. Take a look at the articles i have done like article 13 and tell me if you think this is a better article than article 5.
As always your feedback is appreciated.
Kind Regards Steven
