Merge to [[Glossary]]

Jump to: navigation, search

Should this page merged to Glossary or at least move to Category:Getting Started. Category:New Users only has this single page.

This page aims to give brief summary descriptions of computing terms that may be unknown to some users. The Glossary gives somewhat longer descriptions of KDE technologies specifically. Thus the two pages serves different purposes, so I don't think they should be merged.

For the time being I'll just add the Getting Started category. We may want to reorganise our material for beginning users so the New Users category may still be useful.

Btw. any input on how to make a better experience for beginning users is most welcome.

I am fine to keep them seperate. I am try to add cross link to each other.

As for better experience, I think we should improve the category system. It is the main utility for users to navigate through the Wiki.

  • Fix uncategoried pages and uncategoried categories.
  • Give well defined category name. For example, I do not think Category:New Users are good category name. Often we have hard time to decide whether a page should be put to it. Instead of naming by "Who should read this page", name by "What this category is" better. So we can use Category:Help.

I am currently reading Techbase and Userbase at the same time. I do think Userbase is much better than techbase, so Techbase needs more attention now.
