Category Home Page

A Home Page is a page a person sets up to describe themself and perhaps store links of personal interest, semi-private discussions on Talk Pages or (Wiki Mail Boxes), etc.

Editing in another person's Wiki Home Page needs to be done with extra care and respect for the Dialogue Practices being supported by that person. The viewpoint of the Home PageOwner takes precedence unless it violates Higher PrinciplesOfWards Wiki.

Some of the other suggestions for Home Page edit behavior by third parties include:

try not to conduct a dialogue in a different person's Home Page

When editing pages, be careful not to put Category Home Page on pages written about a person. Use instead, if necessary, Category Person, Category Author etc.

Q: Why does my Home Page have the Category Home Page on it?

A: If a reference to this page appeared on your Wiki Home Page while you weren't looking, it was probably the work of a Wiki Gnome. They like to keep things tidy.

Q: How can I protect my Home Page against unfriendly edits?

A: Adding "No unfriendly editing of this page, please" to the page might work.

Q: What if I get this response to clicking on the title in order to see all pages of this category: No search word given (or HTTP_REFERER blocked).?

A: Check the settings of any firewall or proxy used if Http Referer is blocked (else try a different browser).

Q: Many firewalls don't allow Http Referer, is there a way to access the page anyway?

A: See explanation at Full Search. Some browsers (probably not Netscape or Mozilla) will accept the following Book Marklet:

javascript:location.href=''+document.title.replace(/ /g,'');

Q: Wanted Wiki Pages says that there are 14 instances of CategoryHomepage, but search for it returns the same number of pages (4411 as of 20071119) as a search for Category Home Page. How is a Wiki Gnome to search out and repair those?

A: Looks like one must go through each and every Home Page, one at a time... sad to say. :(
