Move articles to os2world wiki

Hey!, there are some articles in the edm2 wiki that are not development-related. I think they should not be in this wiki. But there is a new wiki in the os2world web page that can host them. What do you think about this?. The articles are: The config.sys documentation project, booting several operating systems, and dual boot. --Antonio Serrano. Málaga, Spain.

I consider edm/2 is good one point source for most of OS/2 related documentation. For developer not inly coding things is important. For example, config.sys documentation is good source for boot-flow and components interoperation. --Prokushev (talk) 17:29, 19 March 2016 (CET)

For the moment everything that is related to OS/2 software development/architecture is getting inside the EDM/2 wiki (with permission, otherwise it is just a link). Other general things about OS/2 like software reviews, personal option articles, software list, software description and non-development information is well suited on the OS2World wiki Martini (talk) 16:39, 16 May 2017 (CEST)

Front page rearrangement

Since the article section of the Wiki sees very limited updates and what little action there is on the site is mostly contained to more generic Wiki part, I will re-arrange the front page to reflect this in the coming months and to make it seem less stale. ~~ Reiknir Jan 2015.

The top section of the front page currently points to a article categories, this made sense when the wiki was first started but none now when there is only a new article every few years. I will in the next few weeks re-arrange the front page and to a lesser degree the structure of the wiki to reflect this and make the wiki structure more coherent~~ Reiknir December 2015.

P.S. This is needed not just to make the wiki seem less outdated and confusing than it really is (go to top of page, get an article from 1997), but also because for some bizarre reason the old EDM articles are content wise separated from the rest of the wiki in an artificial manner. That separation is better done by categories.

I will also remove the glossary category and either flesh out the links or integrate them to a single page, as a category it makes no sense.

os2ezine archive

How about move os2ezine to edm/2 as archive copy? os2ezine has some interesting development articles...

That is actually a good idea, but we need either to get a permission for a licence change for each article, or make sure each article is done with a "not under AASH licence" preamble --Reiknir (talk) 18:42, 19 March 2016 (CET)

Other OS/2 Related Sites

In my opinion a wiki is not a link farm. Especially not an advertisement thing for commercial sites. So please remove this annoyance! --ak120 (talk) 17:35, 29 October 2016 (CEST)

I don't know who put this spam back to the front. Please make at least warning for links to sites that collect data for spamming.--ak120 (talk) 21:49, 10 November 2016 (CET)

It will be interesting if you list which do you consider spam sites that are on this wiki for evaluation Martini (talk) 16:35, 16 May 2017 (CEST)

Web trackers

It would be fine to disable the web trackers at this page to improve privacy. --ak120 (talk) 10:54, 16 May 2017 (CEST)

To the web admins

Please remove the display of "Main Page" or "Hauptseite" from the entrance pages (following the procedure from mw docs). Also the language detection of user agents seems not to work. German UA are directed to the English page and not to the [1]. The old index.html for the classic EDM/2 content should be restored as well to make this pages useable for navigation. --ak120 (talk) 19:47, 19 March 2018 (CET)
