    Default Is there a Directory of Wiki subjects ?

    http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?t=66185

    In this post on in the pocket watch forums on Watch grades

    Second post - by Tom -Watch grade numbers apparantly is not posted yet.

    Yet 5th post in this thread by Kent - Watch Grades has a wiki article.

    Is there a way we were supposed to know that Watch Grades has a wike article, like a directory of the Wiki topics ?

    Sort of. In the Encyclopedia Tools section are listed Wiki Categories. These provide a tree structure of categories for articles as detailed in the top article Encyclopedia Categories. There is no "watch grades" category at present.

    Lightbulb Re: Is there a Directory of Wiki subjects ? (RE: Richard Watkins)

    The community logic of the wiki is that the unwritten links represent a request for an expert (or someone) to write an article on the topic. I was being lazy and did not look up the articles that Kent had already written on the subject, or I might have chosen one of those to link to.

    It may be worthwhile to have one top level article along the lines of what I posted in that thread to introduce a watch grades category. I did not think I had time to do the subject justice right now.
    ---- follow up -------

    I see that someone has written an article on watch grades since my reference above is a blue link.

    Richard and Tom - Thank you for the responses.

    I can see the subjects now in the encylopedia section of the wiki links.
