Introduction

In an effort to avoid the typical degradation seen where NPOV is imposed i.e., edit wars, deletions, reversions, link spam, etc., Aficionados is a MyWikiBiz mechanism used to provide links from Main Space articles to discussions, and other interested persons/entities and their contributions (if any).

In contrast to an article's history page, aficionados links allow the use of true names via Directory listings. Aficionados also provide a means to associate persons/entities with other interests (if any), as well as display other contributions they may have made. Contributions can be Main space articles, Directory space discussion pages, or information included within Directory listings.

Main Page Links

Adding the following template to the bottom of any Main space article:


{{aficionados}}

Will generate this:

Aficionados




Aficionados Subpages

Clicking through to the Aficionados subpage, a standard ASK query that looks like this (using Boxing as an example):


The following have [[Help:Semantic tagging|semantically tagged]] '''Boxing''' as an [[Relation:Subject Interest|interest]]:
<ASK Mainlabel="Person/Entity" Header="show" Link="all">
[[Subject_Interest::Boxing]]
[[Subject_Interest::*|Interests]]
[[Contributor_To::*|Contributions]]
</ASK>
<br clear="all">

The following have semantically tagged '''[[:Category:Sports|Sports]]''' as an interest:
<ASK Mainlabel="Person/Entity" Header="show" Link="all">
[[Subject_Interest::<q>[[:Category:Sports]]</q>]]
[[Subject_Interest::*|Interests]]
[[Contributor_To::*|Contributions]]
</ASK>
<br clear="all">

Will generate a result that looks like this:


The following have semantically tagged Boxing as an interest: <ASK Mainlabel="Person/Entity" Header="show" Link="all"> Boxing Interests Contributions </ASK>

The following have semantically tagged Sports as an interest: <ASK Mainlabel="Person/Entity" Header="show" Link="all"> [[Subject_Interest::Category:Sports]] Interests Contributions </ASK>

Side Note

The relation Subject Interest is used for both individuals and entities (eg businesses, NPOs) because:

  • If subject interest was reduced to interest, it may conflict with a future financial tag called interest;
  • Creating a personal, business or other similar interest descriptor could lead to tag proliferation. Since many people & businesses have similar interests (eg real estate), it would only fragment semantic values.

Conclusion

Aficionados is all about creating the means by which a community of interested persons can exchange information regarding Main space articles without the typical degradation seen where NPOV is imposed i.e., edit wars, deletions, reversions, link spam, etc.
