Discussion

Page history last edited by Stacey Kerr 14 years, 5 months ago

Since PBwiki has yet to add threaded discussions, perhaps we can create a separate page for each discussion topic. This will allow us to explain the topic on the page and then use the "Comments" tab on that particular page to discuss. We can list all the discussion pages (with a link to each) below on the Reading Schedule page.

 

If someone has a better solution, I'd love to hear it--really. PBwiki's non-threaded discussion has always baffled me (I know--WikiSpaces has them, but I still find PBwiki more user-friendly). I've struggled to find a good solution.

 

Perhaps I'm stuck in 2001 and not overly Wiki-attuned, but I'm going to suggest, at least in discussions, some sort of shorthand to attribute contributions on the page rather than relying on having to look at changes to see who wrote what. In the discussion I created below, I just put my name in parentheses at the end of my "post." I can also see doing the roundtable discussion format I've seen in magazines where we start each contribution with the name in bold and then afterwards it's a shortened version.

 

For example:

 

Stacey Kerr: Writes something.

 

SK: Writes something else later.

I think this is a good idea. I went ahead and created a tentative calendar, and I linked the first chapter to a page. I guess we can put a summary of the chapter on the information page. I agree that it might be better to put the discussion in the comments section for each page.

I think the drawback to having discussions fall in different chapter sections is that some discussions won't fall into different chapters sections. But putting the discussion into the comments is perfect. See--I told you I was stuck in 2001!
