Good idea[edit]

Thanks for starting this, VT. I noticed the redirect from Connectipedia doesn't work so well, which I assume has to do with the plus symbol. Should we maybe move the article to Connectipedia, and redirect in the other direction? Not sure what the manual of style has to say about stuff like this, but I think the standard English alphabet spelling is preferred. -Pete (talk) 01:30, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Good suggestion, I didn't realize the redirect was broken. I'll switch them now. VanTucky 18:16, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

History[edit]

I feel like the tone of this section isn't particularly appropriate to the Wikipedia style. Rather than talking about inspiration, what's more vital to a history of the project is the nuts and bolts of how it got started. Trying to fit with our totally neutral tone, we try and steer clear of subjective language like "community spirit and passion", it being a clear value judgment about Meyer and the project. I'd love to keep it in an altered form, but it's just too close to the contents of Connectipedia.org right now, from my perspective as an encyclopedist. VanTucky 21:58, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, yes, very much agreed. Working with what we have as approved language and moving that to appropriate language for wikipedia. I appreciate your comments! User:Amy Sample Ward —Preceding comment was added at 23:50, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
The new version is much better, the article is coming along nicely! VanTucky 02:57, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
I love that I know everyone who has edited this article personally. -Pete (talk)

Wagn[edit]

Wagn (software) redirects here, but why? It seems to me it'd be like MediaWiki redirecting to Wikipedia. - furrykef (Talk at me) 20:58, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki is the wiki engine for many notable websites, and has significant coverage online from WP:RS, but I can't find any significant coverage for Wagn outside of its use on Connectipedia. A few editors have just resurrected the article, but I'd like to propose merging the new content back here, as I can't see any evidence of yet of notability per WP:GNG.

my two pence[edit]

+1 to Captain Conundrum.

WAGN is a piece of software to build wikis, Connectipedia is one wiki built with that technology, there's the same difference as between Napoleon and Man (or mediawiki, and Wikipedia). I would just double link the two!

  • Connectipedia is built on top of WAGN
