Wikispecies:Institution acronyms needing fixes

From Wikispecies
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A project within the Wikispecies Projects

Suggested process

  1. Create a Category:Unused institution acronyms (or whatever name is preferred) under Category:Repositories.
    • This allows these categories to be easily monitored via a bot.
  2. Select a preferred acronym within each set.
  3. Move all other acronym categories to Category:Unused institution acronyms.
    • If a category has been hard-redirected, recreate and categorise it.
  4. Insert a new template {{Unused institution acronym}} on these category pages (similar to en:Template:Category redirect)
  5. Redirect all acronym pages to the chosen acronym
    • Move all information not duplicated to the main page and include a list of the merged acronym on that page.
  6. Apply {{Repository link}} to all taxon pages as the categories are changed (this makes it possible to change the institution link and category in a single place).
    • Eventually this template should be able to detect use of an unused/dispreferred acronym.
  7. Start back from 2)

Note: after these pages are done, a significant amount of work remains to be done on pages linked to Repositories
