The Idea of the little table is to watch its behavior from within a pristine copy of the mediawiki code base.

One of my main goals as a Wikipedian is to learn the functionality (and dis-functionalty) of the Wikipedia sociology and the code itself. I've started the afore-mentioned Wikiproject on the English Wikipedia to facilitate this ongoing process...

Quinobi 21:16, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)
It's hard to be objective. The code seems to be working, though. Trolls and elitists are purplexed. So far not much activity... Quinobi 10:26, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
Looking up a bit. Now I'm purplexed. We now have the Wikiproject_group and the Revision_review_group. Just talking to myself, here. Quinobi 03:12, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
Still spend a large amount of my time at Wikipedia as w:User:CQ but try to make at least an annual visit to meta. Quinobi 19:57, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
Well now that I'm out of prison, I can get back to work on what matters. Sorry for the absence. Quinobi (talk) 21:50, 15 January 2015 (UTC)


Under construction for Wikisound: A mobile recording/streaming unit built from a shoestring budget into a camper and van. The unit uses servers loaded with all open source software for audio production and distribution and is dedicated to developing open audio content and educational resources to be made freely available by various means to the Internet Public - Worldwide. The unit is based in Western Kentucky, USA. Check back here for updates. Quinobi 20:09, 17 May 2005 (UTC)

Shoestring is frazzled on the end and very difficult to poke through the grommet, but the project is moving incrementally forward. http://ozonefarm.net may resolve soon. Quinobi 05:54, 3 August 2005 (UTC)\
OzoneFarm.org and OzoneFarm.com have bee taken by other entities. OzoneFarm.net is compromised. http://ozonefarm.sourceforge.net is still open and ready for your participation. Just let us know. http://ecovillage.wikia.com/wiki/OzoneFarm is yours and mine. Use it. • Quinobi 23:56, 18 July 2006 (UTC)


Once again, thanks for your contribution to my questionnaire - this time in answering it yourself. Your answers are very open and honest - I think it's the most interesting one I've got back so far :) and I'll hopefully be using some of the ideas here to reinforce my Wikimania talk (paper here). Thank you very very much. Cormaggio 15:11, 31 July 2005 (UTC)


On page Talk:WiktionaryZ, under the heading "Complete lack of communication with the current Wiktionary community", there is a link to en:WikiProject_Keywords which leads to no where, (now). Is there a chance to update it to something useful? -- Purodha Blissenbach 14:53, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

OK w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Keywords got way off track. It's supposed to be a metadata tool. Quinobi 05:32, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Keywords has been stripped of most all of the nonsense. A support community is reviving the project. It has survived this long. Just leave it alone or get involved, please. Quinobi 09:00, 16 February 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for the poem Charley. (And, obviously, thanks to w:User:Playaoms11 too - I figure you two know each other in real life?) It's true - a life needs to be shared - although I think of, for example, a buddhist monk who spends his/her life in contemplation and then writing poetry as someone who is also participating in the human community in a very real way. I suppose the writing is the sharing - of thoughts, rather than activities. Anyway, just a random musing - thanks for provoking it :-) Cormaggio @ 09:34, 19 July 2006 (UTC)


Hey Charley, thanks for making me aware of Communitas. I've made some comments on its talk page.

And yes, I know MeatBall well - here's my user page - and I've also set up a basic page on LearningCommunity. Still, I haven't checked in for months - maybe I should start some discussions going again. Cheers! Cormaggio @ 11:32, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi Charley, Thanks for the note about Communitas and the comment at the Wikiversity page. I glanced at one of the Communitas pages early this week. As the project looked to be in formation, I didn't review the talk page closely. Will do that. However, I'm on vacation now through end of next week. In general, I agree that a participatory process is a very good way to go for planning and an especially good fit for Wikiversity and other joint wiki education and research endeavors. I look foward to being a part of such however they unfold. Best, Reswik 23:55, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for the WelcomeEdit

I am sooo overwhelmed at everything here but it's fascinating. I love a challenge. I am trying to convince my research team to have a page here.

We shall see.

Nice to meet you. User_talk:OneWomanArmy923 Diana 22:47, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Learning objectsEdit

Quite interesting. I'm not sure they're at all relevant out of context, but I think it's something I should learn more about before making judgements. - Amgine / talk meta 03:16, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for this, Charely. You'll have to forgive me, however - Wikimania was a blast, but has set me back in my work by a huge amount (as well as hugely pushing it forward, if that makes any sense!). I'm facing a looming deadline for my dissertation, so I'm almost no good for giving detailed comments on all that's happening around with Wikiversity and research. In general, though, I think you're on the right track, and encourage you to be bold and continue. Having said this, and one of the most interesting comments I heard at Wikimania, I think we should make clear on Wikiversity about how different pedagogies work and allow for people to work within those pedagogies/paradigms/methodologies. You, perhaps, have one style of education in mind - other people will have a slightly different style. I think we need to encourage different styles of both creating and delivering content, to cater for different types of learners. So I wouldn't worry for now about whether your proposals for a mode of education is workable - rather, let's try it out, experiment, make it as relevant to educators and learners as we can, and see how it evolves. Cormaggio @ 11:19, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Hey Thanks,children for your responses! (We're ALL learners here!) I'm encouraged by your minimal effort to at least keep me heading forward, correct direction or not. (I'll recieve what I am blessed with and you are both blessings to the community at large, or so I (as least among this amalgamation of souls) perceive). I shall continue in my research of Learning Objects (as they interest me from a personal note) and with the Communitas/Prioritas programs of thought, as has been mandated to me by those authorities which I hold to be preeminant. (The Forces of Nature and the Spirits of the Devine). Onward through the Fog! Quinobi 20:32, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Wikia/Wikiversity debaucleEdit

I do not understand what you mean by "Wikia/Wikiversity debaucle". I did notice your editing today and I certainly hope that Wikia wikis and Wikimedia Foundation wikis have a long future of constructive collaboration. --JWSurf 04:30, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

IRC cloak requestEdit

I am yeoman on freenode and I would like the cloak wikimedia/quinobi. Thanks. --Quinobi 12:35, 19 March 2007 (UTC)


I think Image:LOM.PNG would be nice for illustrating en:Learning Object Metadata, but it lacks the copyright/license information that is required by Wikipedia. Could you state that information on Image:LOM.PNG? (e.g. whether it is self-made, public-domain, GFLD, etc.). I am not a frequent visitor of meta.wikimedia.org, so I would thank you if you post any reply in my en.wipedia Talk Page. Rjgodoy 06:18, 3 April 2007 (UTC)


Hello Quinobi,

FYI, the page titled "Context" you created some years ago was moved to your user space at User:Quinobi/Context following this RfD. Best regards, Korg 21:33, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Quinobi 17:44, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
