New Namespace for Names[]

I am thinking we should set up a separate Namespace for names and have individual names for them. That way, we can have categories for family names, given names, Muslim names, Persian names, male names, female names, and so on.iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 20:10, 3 Mar 2005 (GMT)

That sounds interesting. But please explain a bit more. How would they relate to other categories? Couldn't they just be articles, maybe with lists linking to specific names? (That would make it more likely that people would find them in a search.) Robin Patterson 06:18, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

Having done some thinking since, I agree with you. I like the way, say, Khan looks now.iFaqeer (Talk to me!) 02:57, 15 May 2005 (UTC)

Including us in the Wikicities Tour[]

I have not worked out how to do it yet, but I'm starting a page called Project:Wikicities tour/Create a new tour stop with a copy of the Central Wikia instruction about it. Robin Patterson 01:05, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Hello, folks!

I have been a little slow on the Genealogy side for a while. By way of introduction, my passion is genealogies from non-European roots; places where detailed work hasn't been done. Like India, the Muslim World and all; and haven't been able to follow up much. Will try to get back into it.

One thing we do need is more Admins. Please see: Project:Requests for adminship.
