Topic Review and Update
#21
Just a quick update - The latest round of stub articles marked for deletion have been deleted.

Also - out of the approx 1776 stub articles on the list, we've now reviewed approx 645. So still a number left to go, but we've also made substantial progress in our review of this content.

More progress reports forthcoming as things continue to progress.

Thanks!

Todd,

Excellent work on this!  I hope we're keeping track of numbers at the end so we can say we deleted #, updated #, consolidated #, etc. 

A question on some of our early history sub-topics. The Iron and Atomic ages are sparse and the Bronze Age has no articles at all. Do we think we need to keep these separate or should they all be rolled into the Agricultural and Industrial Ages? Could we just make these articles?

We can use some of the baked in functionality of the tracking sheet to pull numbers on at least some - and possibly all - of those items with a bit of effort.

RE the Iron, Bronze, and Atomic Ages - I would be more than happy to get rid of the first two entirely. But rolling them into the Agricultural Age also works if that is preferred. Folding the Atomic Age into the Industrial Age is also fine with me.

If we need/want to rename any of the Ages that remain after the above, that is also something we can discuss.

Thanks!

I'm good with getting rid of them. It's probably not worth the effort but if I had to do this from scratch, I would divide the pre-spaceflight era into an Age of Agriculture and Age of Globalization. The Age of Globalization (1400-2100 CE) would cover the seven centuries of planetary exploration, interconnectivity, modern science, industrialization, and the beginning of spaceflight.

We currently have an Agricultural Age, so that should be easy to retain. The Globalization Age would be a much bigger challenge since we currently use the 'Information Age' terminology all over the EG.

I'll try to grab time to look at the relevant Topics and Articles with an eye to moving/removing/folding into the articles we want to retain. That will take a bit of time, so if anyone has any objections to removing these articles or would like to suggest alternatives, please do so in the near future.

Thanks!

Forgot about the information age. We would want to keep that.  As I was, Age of Globalization (1400 - 1968 CE). This would make 1 AT the start of the Interplanetary Era and the Information Age.
