Students directory
Open, Needs TriagePublic


As T2935 showed how is amazing a list of all the universities interested I think that is important to create an University address book for students.
Maybe a tag or category that users can add in their profile ex: Sapienza (university) - Math (course).
And a page that dynamically generate all the students based from that label in their profile.
Will be useful for new contributor to find if there are people in their university.

This is very very easily done with a template that tells you from which university you are from. I am just not sure how we want to handle localization; how do we plan to bring the template within wikis? e.g. should all unis be present on all the websites, or just on their countries one?

Probably something like on for the languages that use a code like this:
Maybe we can create a slug based for the university like unipa, unica and a field without restriction for the course.

So, apparently Wikipedia is using this extension:

which means we'd have to create our own for universities? Would the course be localized?

Uhm maybe a different extension this is focus for languages but we need like a tag generated automatically to avoid to insert manually the universities.

I agree... maybe with autocomplete? I have lots of good ideas, time to draw mockups and write some PHP :-)

Well an autocomplete will be great to simplify but maybe to start is too much.

Any update on this? I mean, I got the point but I don't know if anyone took this project further. Should we continue thinking about it or should we set a lower priority?
