Regarding the community portal I would think that it should using the category tree that I install we can decide how we want to categorize the content and then attach the appropriate categories to each page. From there we can insert a category tree that will help in navigation. These category trees are hierarchical in nature and can either be hierarchical fragments or can extend all the way up to a parent node. When inserting a category tree it can start anywhere in the tree, so we can get creative with this.

I created a category tree example for you to see on the wiki. This will give you a visual of what I am talking about. I think that everything should eventually filter up to "Home" category, but it it doesn't have to be this way. It could be that we have some trees that are not attached to "Home" (fragments I mentioned above).

I inserted a tree on the Universe Category page with <nowiki><categorytree mode=pages>Universe</categorytree></nowiki> (Universe can be replaces with any node in the tree)

I think by looking at how I am doing this, it may be the best way to learn. --[[User:David Mathis|David Mathis]] 11:42, 2 June 2011 (CDT)

:I like the way this works, although it was a little confusing for a couple minutes. --[[User:Michael Saganski|Michael Saganski]] 13:33, 2 June 2011 (CDT)

This page seems to be getting a lot of random spam from anonymous users with different IP addresses. They are probably scripted bots that roam the internet looking for MediaWiki sites that allow anonymous posting for easy spamming. Is there something we can do about this? One fix would be to require registration for posting on discussion pages, but this would require changes to the current philosophy and approach of this Wiki.--[[User:Michael Saganski|Michael Saganski]] 15:55, 17 July 2011 (CDT)

I have this page on watch but there are things here that I don't remember seeing.  Specifically your mention of spammers or spam bots, Mike.  The thing to do is do a '''rollback''' and then go to the previous version and do a '''block''' on the identifying IP address.  Or the reverse order if you prefer.  I see no reason why we have to give a warning or second chance.  If we have to we can eventually require registration or possibly one of those graphical discriminators to allow posting to catch bots.  --[[User:Ted Vollers|Ted Vollers]] 07:22, 18 July 2011 (CDT)

Mike you are correct, the ability to post on talk page without registration is by design and we would like to keep it this way.
 
 
Regarding the spam, I will get the site all fixed up throughout the coming week(s).  I intentionally did not place any spam filters on the wiki so that I could see with my own eyes what would happen (more of a curiosity while the wiki is still new . It's clear to me that spam prevention is needed as it can be very annoying and cause a distraction. I plan to do several things that I feel will greatly reduce and perhaps eliminate most spam. --[[User:David Mathis|David Mathis]] 07:43, 18 July 2011 (CDT)

Good to know, thanks. Yeah I've been rolling back their changes. A graphical discriminator (i.e. type the word you see in the image) is a pretty good method that I forgot about.--[[User:Michael Saganski|Michael Saganski]] 10:27, 20 July 2011 (CDT)

Ignore last spam, installing a spam filter. Was me. I create another page that nobody is watching for testing purposes. --[[User:David Mathis|David Mathis]] 10:49, 22 July 2011 (CDT)

Dom,
 
 
When you create edits to pages as you did earlier, please make note of them and possibly of reasons on the discussion page so we can keep track of who did what and why.  Then insert a time stamp to close the record.  You made a good beginning here.  As you see, I have extensively modified your general expansions, which were a good idea.  Keep in mind to set titles as bold, italic for books and as appropriate for other titles.  You might compare these changes with yours on the history page.--[[User:Ted Vollers|Ted Vollers]] 03:56, 11 February 2012 (CST)
 
 
Inserted comments on newly written material appearing in the Wiki, written by Tom Campbell or Ted Vollers.--[[User:Ted Vollers|Ted Vollers]] 16:53, 11 March 2012 (CDT)

The Wiki is back up after a hiatus, now hosted on Tom's server.  I am now back at work, at least beginning to be.  I have just added a reference to Shamanism, Indra's Net and the Buddha's Illusion to the first paragraph about the purpose of this Wiki.[[User:Ted Vollers|Ted Vollers]] 12:47, 21 February 2015 (CST)
