** Domain names: When talking about the original registration of givewell.org and givewell.com, you should mention that these are different organizations than the GiveWell of this page✔
 
** compare [http://web.archive.org/web/20100525182513/http://www.givewell.org:80/ this] and [http://web.archive.org/web/20100423164224/http://www.givewell.org:80/ this] it looks like GiveWell acquired the givewell.org domain between April 23 and May 25, 2010; I can't pinpoint a more precise date, but it would be worth adding this row even with the imprecise time range✘(both links lead to no information).
 
** Similarly, see if you can use the Wayback Machine to find out when GiveWell (acquired givewell.com✘) and set it to (redirect to givewell.org✔). 
 
** For the 2019 board membership changes https://www.givewell.org/changes-in-board-membership it would be good to have a single, consolidated row that describes the controversy around the board membership changes, and discussion of it.✔
 
** For other board membership and staff changes, my suggestion would be to only keep changes for which something more can be said than just the name of the person joining. For instance, if GiveWell did a blog post about the role and filling it in. Or if the person would later do something significant, or would end up staying at GiveWell for a long time period.✔
 
** '''I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes.''' And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to [https://orgwatch.issarice.com/?organization=GiveWell Org Watch] for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.✔
 
** For citations, rather than having the citation link in a separate row at the bottom, how about having it at the end of the quote, or at the end of the para before the quote? That will make the page a bit more compact.✔
 
** For Wikipedia Views, try to get the chart going back further; I know that only "desktop" data will be available before July 2015 but even that could be illustrative.✔
 
** "GiveWell moves its offices to San Francisco." You should say that this is from New York City✔, and also (talk about reasons✘).
 
** The ''Vox'' citation seems to have a wrong date (December 25, 2018); it was originally published December 1, 2015 but is updated every few months and the date is updated. It may be better to use the December 1, 2015 date.✔
 
** Include the very first staff member donations post https://blog.givewell.org/2013/12/12/staff-members-personal-donations/ and mention that it started an annual tradition of such posts.✔
 
** Sebastian: [https://blog.givewell.org/ GiveWell’s plans for 2020]✔
 
* [[Timeline of waste management]] (Expansion started on February 4, 2020) ('''Tentative payment accepted'''):
 
** There is a duplicate row for the founding of {{w|Clean Harbors}} -- fix that!✔
 
** {{w|California Electronic Waste Recycling Act}} has no explanation -- fix that!✔
 
** The current big picture mixes multiple levels of granularity -- maybe separate into highlights by century and highlights by decade? Similar to what I did for [[timeline of AI safety]].✔
 
** Sebastian: Add from {{w|List of waste disposal incidents}}✔, {{w|Garbage disposal unit}}.✔
 
 
 
* [[Timeline of OpenAI]] (Expansion started on February 23, 2020) (Sebastian: Feel free to ask more for compensation of unmet items) ('''tentative payment accepted''')
 
** For the staff changes, '''I also suggest labeling all these rows "Team"✔ instead of "Staff" so that they fit well for both staff and board changes.''' (Please also update the guidance in the sample questions section accordingly). Also, please keep only those rows for which there is more context or information beyond just a person joining or leaving. And include more details on why and how it's significant, in the timeline row itself. By the way, it is better to point readers to [https://orgwatch.issarice.com/?organization=OpenAI Org Watch] for a complete, systematic list of who joined when.✔
 
** Similarly, for research papers, please include only the ones for which something more can be said beyond just the fact of publication, including how other people received the paper or how it shaped the field. And include that additional information in the timeline.✔ (Sebastian: I included those where OpenAi explains or introduces a new system, toolkit or product.)
 
** Maybe add a column on the subfield or domain, so that rows, especially rows about research papers, can be labeled by the subfield. This will make sorting and classification easier.✔
 
** Maybe include [https://medium.com/@NPCollapse/the-hacker-learns-to-trust-62f3c1490f51 this] as an example of OpenAI influencing others not to release their models (either as a separate row, or in one of the OpenAI GPT-2 rows).✔

** Vipul: I would like it if the initial rows with general background on new search engines till ~1995 (as well as some of the later search engine rows) were removed; there's a timeline [[timeline of web search engines]] for those that has pretty similar stuff. If there is information in the timeline of SEO that isn't there in the timeline of web search engines, it would be good to use that to enhance the timeline of web search engines. If you think specific rows are important to understanding SEO, you can keep them in timeline of SEO. I think the rows about Google algorithm updates are okay to keep in this timeline, even though they are also in [[timeline of Google Search]], because I see that the ones you have included are ones with significant SEO implications, and you have explained the implications in the respective timeline row.
 
** Vipul: There are two rows on the creation of BackRub, for 1996 and 1998. I think the 1998 one should be removed.
 
** Vipul: See if you can provide more historical context/events around terminology and practice of {{w|keyword stuffing}}, {{w|link farm}}s, {{w|cloaking}}, {{w|doorway page}}s, {{w|spamdexing}}, {{w|link building}}, as well as any other SEO concepts. Since many of these started in the late 1990s, there may not be good historical records for them. So it's okay to give a range of years during which we know the practice emerged, but they should get mentioned in the timeline.
 
** Vipul: Maybe add more events around the launches of SEO websites, like searchengineland.com?

Subwiki projects

Subwiki purpose: "Mostly for in-depth exploration/understanding of specific topics, but still not in any sequence (so people can jump directly to a specific page)". Read this: [32]

  • Build summaries for organelles based on this model [33]
  • A table of plasmodia
