Text from August 2002[edit]

As there is already a pretty good selection of legal topics in Wikipedia, the Law basic topics page doesn't seem to serve any purpose. Rather, the links listed in the Law article under "other topics" should be reviewed and moved into other, more specific legal topics. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Netesq (talkcontribs) 12:34, 22 August 2002 (UTC)

I am going to remove the following items from the section "lists" because they were deleted after an AFD discussion:

I am going to remove the redirect List of leading legal cases in copyright law for now. I do not think it adds any functionality to Lists of case law which includes List of copyright case law at which this redirect points. It is not like the groups of lists relating to specific courts. It has been inserted, or allowed to remain, at what seems to be a completely random point. James500 (talk) 04:17, 13 December 2011 (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 00:07, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
