William One Sac,
Thanks. I'm glad you like what I did there. :-) I think it's a quite helpful idea, what someone mentioned here a while back, to sort categories so
it's visible what relation they have with other categories (main category, sub-category, sub-sub-category..) There weren't a lot of categories that
belonged to other categories, really, but after I read that post (not sure who wrote it) I tried to look for categories that seemed should really be
sorted under other categories, and so be sub-categories.
I also have created a couple of new categories, since I think eventually the category structure in tinWiki will have to develop in a somewhat
different direction from how the category structure is here in ATS. For example I have tried to create separate categories for UFOs and Aliens,
respectively, since I believe that in an encyclopedia the two are very different subjects. I mean, almost never is an Alien an unidentified flying
object, and vice versa (at least that isn't the most common way those subjects are talked about, unless for example a craft of some kind is in
reality a kind of living being, like in the sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica, or if an Alien is flying around in the air, like those "witches" in
Mexico or where it was).
But about what you mention, regarding what I have talked about in this thread, do you picture setting up a page directory for external sites (sites
all over the web, really) and doing that within tinWiki, or do you picture creating a separate website like dmoz.org? The latter is really what I
myself was thinking about. Or were you even not thinking of external sites, but of listing tinWiki pages (I mean since you mention search engine
rankings and so on)? Sorry that I didn't quite catch your meaning, I do get fairly easily confused and it's not always clear to me what all these
Internet and web terms refer to...
