Journals[edit]

You have no doubt seen my recent comments at User talk:Shalor (Wiki Ed) about your journals. I deleted three of them and have had a touch of conscience about doing so. I have emailed their text to you so that you can grade them. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 01:34, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

I recommend you to install the MediaWiki software on one of your university's servers. Your students can create their journals there without fear of interruption by busybodies like me. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 08:09, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

@RHaworth: Thanks for letting me know. I have done this for a couple of semesters now without incident. My thinking is that by editing Wikipedia everyday on their journals, not only are they learning to use Wikipedia, but what they post will lead directly to their edits on the site. Would it be possible to let them alone this semester, and I'll use my own install in future semesters? It's only a single subpage for each of them. Thank you for your consideration. —Grlucas (talk) 14:41, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

See here for my main reply. You may thank Thomas Smith for bringing your journals to my attention - see this exchange. He had made a complete false start at category:T. Smith HUMN 4472 Journal and I had deleted it. He was foolish enough to complain to me about the deletion without realising that he had created his journal in the correct place a week earlier. — RHaworth (talk · contribs) 11:01, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

@RHaworth: LOL. This is why I love Wikipedia: I learn something new all the time. —Grlucas (talk) 11:49, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
