Hi list,

I have some questions for some of you working on pdpedia.

Has there already been discussions on policies regarding when/which
pages to lock?
I am assuming that leaving everything unlocked is the way to go if only
the world were an ideal place. Are there not yet MediaWiki spammers?

Regarding importing data from other languages..
For some basic pages, I have gotten away with the following procedure.

I. Open the pdpedia page in English.
II. Enter "edit" mode and [copy] the contents in the form
III. Create an equivalent page in my language and [paste] the material
IV. Use above as a starting point to begin translation.

The above does not work for pages such as 'Category:vanilla'.
I don't quite understand how that content is embedded in the page.
Can some one help me on importing the list of objects?

I've noticed that people working on the Spanish and Portuguese pages
have been successful in this.
