From the main page discussion: Just wanted to let everyone know that Semantic MediaWiki is now enabled on the wiki. It was a feature quietly added during the migration process. Please play around with it and make the wiki better! I feel like Semantic MediaWiki is much, much preferable to categories for things like number of players, numbers of stashes required, etc. It doesn't have the most powerful query language yet, but it should help out with the mess of categories existing currentlyLambda 20:57, 20 August 2008 (UTC) So yeah, this is totally worthwhile, and even installed. It just needs users setting things up. The nice thing is that enabling semantic features can be done piecemeal (not on destination pages (eg, games), but for those, the categories are basically the same, although if one wanted to switch to using attributes for things like game number (eg, instead of [[Category::3 Player]][[Category::4 Player]][[Category::5 Player]] (or worse for even more scalable games), [[Minimum Size::2]] [[Maximum Size::5]]. But once all (or most) games are categorized with a consistent scheme (which they pretty much are, though one could happily redo the scheme a bit), redoing the result pages is just a matter of crafting queries embedded on those pages. -- Joshua Kronengold (mneme@(io.com, labcats.org)) |\ _,,,--,,_ ,) --^-- "Did you know, if you increment enough, you /,`.-'`' -, ;-;;' /\\ get an extra digit?"
