[edit] Hunting for red links

Maybe 99% of links created in Rodovid are automatically created: clans and places. Users creating deliberate red links are very rare. So to avoid:

  • Errors in place name
  • ambiguity in place names

It is really usefull to maintain Wantedpages page almost empty. That means we decided to create all place pages and all clan pages with a standardized way.

[edit] Place names

For france we have a standardized minimal frame to paste in place pages. For all place pages we paste a template: who's cited here, which is a link to What links here. So for a any place page, this give a not so bad list of people who have lived an event in that particular place. So then place pages are really fast-done, with information for searchers.

Example: Kyiv in Rodovid.FR

There are some templates to give a quick view of administrative history of places. See for instance:

On right side of the page, there is a template which creates categories. Well, it's not perfect, really heavy. But it works.

[edit] Clans

There are no possible standardized information to paste in a clan page. So we systematically create clan pages, and paste there a template inviting users to contribute, writing what they know about that particular clan. Tunisian french-speaking users use this pages to write their familly history. French people do not use lots of these pages. We don't know why. Maybe in future.

Clan categories proposed by ukrainian team, about one year ago, are not used by french users. Maybe they seem strange...

[edit] Categorization

This is the general scheme of categories in Rodovid.FR
