List of community topics[edit]

This list seems to be redundant with the List of community topics. What is the intent for creating it? • Q^#o • 17:59, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

This is the basic version, which uses the standard basic list heading structure. The two lists are beginning to diverge, with non-basic sections of this list being removed, while the more comprehensive version continues to grow. The Transhumanist 03:55, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines[edit]

"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:04, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
