Category:How to catalogue projects on hold
Creating the wiki page
Creating a wiki page is very easy.
Type the project’s title directly in the search box and press enter.
A new, editable page will open.
The project’s page title must be written as follows:
To start editing just click on the “edit this page” link right under the new page title.
Filling out the index card
Each field is filled out manually following the criteria below.
If the project has been extracted from a particular source such as an article, book, repository, database, interview, etc., please make sure to include the source in this section.
URL: [BOLD] http://www.project_URL_is_copied_here
Wayback Machine: [BOLD] In order to save the project, its URL is copied in the Internet Archive’s Service with the same name: http://archive.org/web/ Once the project’s URL is copied, the file’s new URL is copied here. You can copy as many project URL’s as necessary. In some cases, sites are protected and copying them is not allowed. To make note of this when it happens, copy the message displayed by the Wayback Machine.
Cataloguing projects On hold
Cataloguing is done following the main menu’s categories and subcategories.
This task is to be performed manually, typing in the corresponding categories and subcategories at the bottom of the project’s page.
Corresponding categories and subcategories are typed following the order in which they appear on the main menu.
Project On hold cataloguing should follow the order described next.
1st Category “On hold”
This first category - “On hold” - is fundamental. Without it the wiki will not be able to identify the project as part of the Collection and the page will be lost to the wiki’s records.
Projects on hold do not need to be completely catalogued. If you wish to fully catalogue a project om hold, the following criteria must be met.
Categories for each project are chosen for how best they represent the project, based on the categories’ descriptions below.
The “Art” category catalogues initiatives related to the modern and contemporary visual and sonic arts such as performance art, installation, new media and happening, as well as those focused on the more traditional fine arts such as painting, drawing, engraving and sculpting.
The “Science” category catalogues initiatives related to the domain of natural science, pure science, social science, engineering and humanities.
The “Culture” category catalogues initiatives related to education, music, customs and traditions, architecture, theater, fashion, design, film, media, radio, television and literature.
The “Economics” category catalogues initiatives related to work and labor, finance, banks, currency, trading and business.
The “Politics” category catalogues intiatives related to goverment, political and civil rights, economic, social & cultural rights, digital rights, justice, all kinds of laws and different kinds of intelectual properties and licences.
The “Technology” category catalogues intiatives centred around the production-distribution of machines and tools, both digital and analog, hardware and software.
The “Language(s)” category catalogues all the languages in which the project has been published at time of its being catalogued.
“Starting Country(ies)” catalogues the country or countries where the project was first started.
“Start Year” catalogues the year the project was initiated.
“Ending Year” catalogues the year the initiative was ended.
It is important to note MAIN MENU CATEGORIES ARE NOT TO BE USED -"Citizen", "Collaborative", "Commons", "Co-ops", "Crowd", "Crypto", "DIY", "Free", "Future", "Grassroots", "Indy", "Occupy", "Open", "P2P", "Pirate", "Private", "Public", "Tactical". When cataloguing the forms of access offered by the project make use of the subcategories only.
Projects might be linked to one or more forms of access, all of which must be included. Catergories are selected based on the vocabulary the project uses to describe and publicize itself. In cases where the project does not explicitly use a vocabulary found in the “Access” subcategories, approriate subcategories can be assigned in accordance with the project’s nature, trusting the entry editor’s good judgment.
Project FUNDING sources must ALWAYS be noted, meaning, they must always be included within the following subcategories:
- “State” in case of a public initiatives.
- “Profit” in case of a for-profit private initiatives.
- “Nonprofit” in case of a non-profit private initiatives.
When dealing with a for-profit private initiatives, is included as a category specifying the project’s legal entity. When dealing with a non-profit private initiatives, is included as a category specifying the project’s legal entity. Some project don’t posess a legal entity at all. In these cases, noting whether they’re “Profit” or “Nonprofit” is enough. This cataloguing step is fundamental, since it allows to review the sustainability models used by the projects.
Adding the image
Adding an image to projects On hold is not necessary. If you wish to include a project image, follow the next steps.
The project index card includes one or more images of the project’s home page. To extract full images of the project’s home pages, your computer’s screenshot tool is not enough, since it only captures the visible portion of the page. In order to get a full image, a browser add-on called Nimbus Screen Screenshot might be used. The add-on, available for free for Mozilla, Chrome, Android and PC can be dowloaded at the following link: https://nimbus.everhelper.me/screenshot.php Many other existing programs offering the same functions might be used.
Once the project’s home page screenshot has been taken, the file is uploaded to the wiki following the instructions on “how to upload a file”: http://dpya.org/en/index.php/How_to_upload_a_file
Keep in mind to select “Align:Right”, “Format:thumbnail” for the manifesto image.
