Key path task force emblem.png
"Key paths" are the main guideposts through our material. These documents are considered part of the Key Path:


To-do items are highlighted.

The purpose of this task force is to improve the accuracy and usability of the key paths in all languages.
  • The key paths should be an accurate representation of Nova Roma positions.
  • They should also provide a usable interface to the website contents for new users.

Step by step plan:

  • Improve infrastructure to make things easier to maintain in the future. (Agricola will do most of this.)
  • General review of Main Page (English) content. Please add comments to the discussion page.
  • Update all Main Pages, starting with things that appear only on Main Pages.
  • Update the main "portals"; summaries and links.
  • Revise the "How to Become a Citizen" box on the Main Page. Make a universal template.
Only LA translation needed, already universival template.
  • Write the Roman name groups of articles in all languages.

Task Force Steps

Infrastructure

I will handle most of this, but I will need help with translation of template boilerplate language. Agricola

Template:Include summary

This template will pull in an article and provide a globalized link to the article. The target article should have a set of "onlyinclude" tags around the summary head matter to prevent the entire article from being imported. Example of this template in use:

Nova Roma is an international organization dedicated to the study and restoration of ancient Roman culture. From its founding until it ceased to be the center of Imperial authority Rome laid the foundation for our modern Western civilization. Founded 2,750 years after the Eternal City itself, Nova Roma seeks to bring back those golden times, not through the sword and the legions, however, but through the spread of knowledge and through our own virtuous example. Learn more ...

This template needs to have the "More..." tag put into these languages: DE RO.

This template is now in use on all Main Pages in the four key sections.

Basic categories for each language (DONE)

The basic categories are being revised to reflect the different lanugages that we use. The top categories are listed here: NovaRoma:Category tree

Roman Name cluster

This cluster of articles is a Key Path for new citizens. It is also one of our most popular topics, so it is a chance for us to show newcomers that we know what we are talking about.

Step 1 Main Page Link

Languages needed.
Remove your language from the table when you are done.
LA

"Template:Becoming a citizen" box THIS IS A GLOBAL TEMPLATE. (Similar to the Current Events List.) We need to translate the items in the GlobalText format.


Languages needed.
Remove your language from the table when you are done.
LA RO RU

"Template:AugustDelay" message THIS IS A GLOBAL TEMPLATE. (Similar to the Current Events List.) We need to translate the items in the GlobalText format.

Step 2 Navigation Box

Languages needed.
Remove your language from the table when you are done.
DE LA RO RU

"Template:Roman name articles" box This is a GLOBAL TEMPLATE that puts a "navigation box" on each of the Roman names articles. Please check that the article names are properly translated. praenomen, nomen, cognomen, agnomen are not translated. Please contact me if this makes a big problem in your language. In general it would be good to leave them untranslated in Latin.

Step 3 Name Templates

Three templates provide information about names. They are ready to accept your translations.

Languages needed.
Remove your language from the table when you are done.
DE LA RO RU

Template:TableOfPraenomina Needs HEADINGS ONLY.


DONE

Template:TableOfNomina


Languages needed.
Remove your language from the table when you are done.
DE ES HU LA RO

Template:TableOfCognomina Needs HEADINGS and MANY OTHER THINGS. It is OK to do a little at a time.

LA 
Needs headings only
ES 
Needs a few items only, almost done.

Step 4 Core Articles

Main Page

Latíné | Deutsch | Esperanto | Español | Français | Italiano | Magyar | Português | Româna | Русский | English

Category

Each Main Page has been moved into the main category for its language under Category: Master Index.

Language Bar and Page Name

The link between all Main Pages is via Template:LanguageBar using the name "Main Page". When a national language Main Page has a different title, a "redirect" in the namespace connects the name "Main Page" to the national language title.

The Main Page in each namespace can be moved to another name, but keep "Main Page" in the LanguageBar template. This will maintain the interpage links.

Elements

The Main Page consists of a number of elements:

  1. Material included from the heads of the national language versions of these articles:
    1. Res publica Novae Romae
      1. In each namespace, the CURRENTYEAR function, plus a redirect to the same namespace article with the Roman numeral AUC date, provides an automatically updated link to the magistrates page. The redirects can be made any time in advance of the change of year.
      2. Template:Calendar which links to the current Fasti and jumps to the current month.
    2. Cultus deorum Romanorum
    3. Civic life (Nova Roma)
    4. Via Romana
  2. Template:Current Events Shortlist which uses special functions to provide the correct language on each page. Items needing translation are noted on the discussion page, to save space here.
  3. A random daily photo selected from NovaRoma:DailyPhotoData (Gallery: Category:Main page). The photo with localized caption is provided by a set of templates that are generated automatically. Edit NovaRoma:DailyPhotoData to change or translate captions. (Template:DailyPhoto - Template:LA:DailyPhoto - Template:DE:DailyPhoto - Template:ES:DailyPhoto - Template:FR:DailyPhoto - Template:HU:DailyPhoto - Template:IT:DailyPhoto - Template:PT:DailyPhoto)
  4. "Becoming a citizen" box THIS IS BECOMING A GLOBAL TEMPLATE. (Similar to the Current Events List.) Because of that we need to simplify the structure and then translate the items in the GlobalText format.
  5. "The Nova Roma Web Site" box Please reformat this box into sentence format. Notice that it is only about the website and should not have instructions about citizenship.

Links

Declaration (Nova Roma) is done! Thank you!

FAQ is needed in DE and HU.

Republic - Portal and Main Page summary

Category

Each Republic Page is in the "Nova Roma" category corresponding to each language namespace.

Language Bar and Page Name

The canonical link between all Republic pages is via Template:LanguageBar using the name "Res publica Novae Romae". When a national language Republic Page has a different title, a "redirect" in the namespace connects the name "Res publica Novae Romae" to the national language title, but it is strongly urged that the name of this page not be changed.

If the Republic Page in any namespace is moved to another name, keep "Res publica Novae Romae" in the LanguageBar template. This will maintain the interpage links.

Elements

Each Republic page consists of several elements:


Cultus

Category

Each Cultus Page is in the "Nova Roma" category corresponding to each language namespace.

Language Bar and Page Name

If the Cultus page in any namespace is moved to another name, keep "Cultus deorum Romanorum" in the LanguageBar template. This will maintain the interpage links.
