Occupy Portland Events - Past Events

Jump to: navigation, search

Mark asks (in reference removing mentions of events that are now past): "are these being stored anywhere?"

Great question, Mark![1]

I've been thinking about that for days now, but have been too jammed on other issues to do anything about it. We should definitely go back in to archived versions of the OP events page and grab old material and format it into a more usable historical reference.

I'm so jammed I really can't focus on this right now. (Sorry!) But a couple of initial ideas:

  1. Let's format each new event into its own magic page, something like: {{name-and-date-of-event}}.
  2. Drop that specific event into OccupyPortlandEvents.
  3. When the event is over, move that event ({{name-and-date-of-event}}) from OccupyPortlandEvents to maybe something like: OccupyPortlandEvents/PastEvents.

Waddya think?

  1. (Actually that's ("!") an exclamation mark; this ("?") is a question mark.)

yep - also Simon from mailing list was talking about this as well - I pointed him to my wiki calendar at USSFwiki - he liked, sure someone will get to it when there is a break!

I'm working on this now! I'll do a first pass, and then people can fix up as they see fit.

okay, all done. I've added pages for everything by going backwards through the history and selecting the version of the page just before the event was removed. i've added comments on all the restored pages as to which revision they came from.

i discovered that there was a PortlandOccupyPastEvents I haven't moved / merged its information with the individual event pages, but that might be a good idea at some point. Not sure how to handle its PortlandOccupyPastEvents#Encampment section.

All the upcoming events also have their own pages now. Either I or User: have to go through and add the other known action committee events that got lost in the [change conflicts]

I tried to add reasonable categories to all the pages, mainly the set: Category:Events, Category:Street Protests, Rallies, Demonstrations, Category:Occupy Portland but also the set: Category:Jobs, Category:Organizing, Category:Union Organizing, Category:PortlandUnionWiki when that seemed applicable
