Separate Articles

Should papermaking and a list of all kinds of paper be made separate from this main article? --Beano Lee 14:00, 1 April 2007

Yes I'd think so.. a good article on Papyrus would be in order to (in my opinion). The "paper" article would end up being more of a portal to "deeper" articles on various subjects --Eric M Gearhart 11:03, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
Alright then, then the main article will mainly be on intro and history, plus the portal role. --Beano Lee 18:20, 8 April 2007

Wikipedia Status

Has the been modified enough to justify CZ:Live status, and the removal of the "Wikipedia" clause? --Eric M Gearhart 11:03, 8 April 2007 (CDT)

I think the tag can be removed once the History section is completely free of parallels to the Wikipedia version. As of writing, it's slightly modified but more historical information and lively prose can still be infused into that section. --Beano Lee 8 April 2007
Well if the CZ 'muse' strikes me tonight I'll try my hand at this 'lively prose' thing you describe :) --Eric M Gearhart 13:42, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
Heheh, may the muse be with you. --Beano Lee 8 April 2007
