CSE Wiki:Governance

From CSE Wiki

CSE Wiki being open to edit, needs some governance structure to ensure that users do not enter into conflict. To ensure consistency and smooth running, there are guidelines that all users have to follow.

User groups

Categories

A page can be have multiple categories. To see all the pages in a category go to its page, which is at Category:<category name>. A category can also be a part of another category. This creates a hierarchy of categories. (Note: Applying one category to a page does not automatically included parent categories. They have to be manually applied).

See the example of category Organisations and International Organisations. International Organisations is tagged with the category of Organisations, which makes is a subcategory of Organisations. All pages should be tagged with both to appear on the category pages of both.

See all categories in use at Special:Categories.
