I personally think the wiki is in need of reorganization because there are lots of pages that don't fit together, too short to be stand-alone and should be merged, or are simply orphans. So, I thought I would get input from the community about reorganizing the wiki. What do you guys like and dislike? How would you guys organize the wiki?
I would group some commands by which menu they're under. For example the row modifiers for matrixes could all be put together.
Obviously, though, the fact that you didn't see this page is a sign that the navigation bar has failed its purpose.
A very long time ago, back in 2011 or something, I remember starting a project specifically devoted to reorganizing this site. My work is is still here, and obviously still its infancy. I had made a list of every page (at that time; probably not much different now though) and started reading through them one by one in order to categorize them. I never continued because of the time commitment involved, and I was the only one doing it.
Perhaps you all could continue it.
I looked at the page history, and it was started all the way back in 2009 O.o While categorization is an interesting approach, I'm not entirely sure that it makes sense for all of the pages; some of the pages really do stand alone. I wasn't active at that time, so what other ideas did you guys come up with?
I found the original thread. Unfortunately, it seems as if we did not get very far.
It seems like at the time we wanted to organize the site into a tutorial-like structure. Reconsidering now, I think that such a structure is fit for the starter kit section, and most of our other pages are like additional research-at-your-leisure pages, so organizing the entire site into a tutorial seems impractical (imagine that you want to learn TI-Basic, and you find a tutorial that is 1521 pages long. That's slightly daunting…
I think the point of that page I was working on was more of a starting point; essentially, its goal was to find pages that were similar, since it seems as if some pages could be combined, or that some could clearly be grouped together. In fact, our pages are already currently categorized (Development, Techniques, Commands, and Misc), so the point of that page was to see if our current organization could be optimized and made easier to navigate.
