The edits are nice, but why would we have a link to "artist"?

Seemed like a good way to take off and discuss artists needs at a convention. --Bill Taylor 08:17, 11 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I killed the link for now (several others, too), since I don't have any page in my article now that it would point to.

Another question: How can I make the link at the bottom of this page return to its parent, the Art Show page, rather than it's grandparent, Operations? Or can I?


If you just want to link to other specific pages, just put the name in brackets, e.g. Art Show.

The link, or links, at the very bottom of the page are supposed to go to Category pages. They are created so that all the articles on the same rough subject or common theme can be seen at a glance. In fan parlance they are "Birds of a Feather" pages. They are easy to create, just type [[Category: Fill in the Blank ]] and the blank category will be created. Follow that link, Put some text on the page, and the software will maintain it from there on.

In this case, I started putting [[Category:Art Show]] on the pages you put up, seeing as they pretty obviously should be considered as a group.

The best way to see this in action is to jump over to Wikipedia and select a major article. Say Henry VIII of England. You will see several category links at the bottom of the page. Follow one and you will see a huge collection of articles with some common theme. Click on one of them, and it will probably have several categories too. Continue this and you'll see a progression like House of Tudor, Tudor People, English People, British People. In this case they are nested, but sometimes they just overlap, like English Monarchs, World Monarchs, Heads of State, US Presidents. --Bill Taylor 12:05, 11 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I just replaced this page - Art Show types - with a new one, Art Show - Types and priorities. This one is probably not pointed to by anything now.

After the fact, I realized I should have moved this one to the new name first, and then done the edit. Hindsight is 20/20. --Brucemoko 22:13, 10 Dec 2005 (PST)
