The One Name Studies Project is getting a makeover!

+30 votes
Well, more of a tidy-up, really.  I have been sorting through the list of current Name Studies, so don't be alarmed if you see a Project Maintenance category put on your ONS - it just means I'm working on it!

I decided it was time for a spring-clean when I came across a Name Study called 'Paternal Father', and one called 'One Name Studies Name Study'.

And yes, if you've gone to have a look, I know about all those Romingers. I have asked two different people twice to remove them.

So if you hear screaming in the distance, it's only me, confronted by yet another 'X Name Study'...

So what is the plan?  Encourage or discourage one name studies. Or are you just reviewing the working guidelines to make them more consistent?  Tell me more.
by Gurney Thompson G2G6 Pilot (283k points)
One Name Studies remain as they always were - encouraged.

I am not reworking the guidelines, because if people would read them they would find they are easy to follow.

This is a cleanup of all those Studies where errors have crept in because people were too excited to read the instructions.
Thanks,  I look forward to helping.

Well, I couldn't even put a maintenance category on your Jesters, because it has Public as its privacy lock.

BTW, it would have been marked as one of those studies who warranted a maintenance category, since the URL only has one name, and is not "Jester Name Study", as requested on the Project Page. You can call it whatever you like *afterwards*, but you need to call it "Jester Name Study" to properly form the URL.
You mean like this one:

I think you looked at this one which I admit does need to be renamed
I can see why I got confused.

"Jester Name Study" has no categories on it, so it does not appear in the list of One Name Studies (and it should).

"Jester" appears in the list of One Name Studies (and it shouldn't).  Please remove [[Category:One Name Studies]] from it.

So: remove the category from Jester, and

add [[Category:Jester Name Study]] and [[Category:One Name Studies]]  to Jester Name Study.  If it comes up red, click on it and add [[Category:One Name Studies]] to the page which appears (and Save).

This will enable you to link to your category page.
Ros, doncha know the Jesters are the Lords of Misrule?

(working on it, boss)
Actually mine is more of a Family study, I'm attempting to measure the dynamics of the Jester family network.
That's fine.  You can rename it the Jester Family Study if you would like.

Just make the changes with the categories.
