Websites[edit | edit source]
User:RobLa I actually wanted to eventually go through the "Websites" section and move all those links under more descriptive headings because "Websites" is so vague of a category. — Psephomancy (talk) 01:52, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
- Hmm....I agree with you that "Website" is a vague category name (and "Web page" is even worse). But I think we're going to have to endure some vagueness until someone proposes a better taxonomy for the links in that section. I just noticed that Wikipedia uses "Category:Websites", and then the categories below are not "MECE" (mutually exclusive, collectively exhaustive). I have more ideas, but just ping me in one of the usual spots (e.g. on CES's Discord server) and we can sort things out. -- RobLa (talk) 02:13, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Shuffling[edit | edit source]
It seems to me that this page is long overdue for splitting up into several pages and better organization. @Psephomancy: had planned to do some more work on this page a couple of years ago, which I may have been guilty of discouraging. Here's a closer look at some of the incremental things that need to occur:
- Rename "Voting links#Websites" section title of the "Voting links" article to a new section title: "#Links"
- Move the links from the "Voting links#Discussion groups" to the "Forum" article
- Move the links from the "Voting links#Polling sites" section to the existing "Online poll" article
- Move the links from the "Voting links#Software" section to the existing "Software" article
- Create an election data page from the "Voting links#Election data" section
I may start doing that soon, barring objections from others. -- RobLa (talk) 00:00, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
