ThoughtStorms Wiki

I spent 10 years writing a lot of answers on Quora. Now I'm finally LeavingQuora And transferring my content to ThoughtStorms.

Today is a good day. Having got a reasonably good export of my answers, I've finally put them into a format that can easily be imported into this wiki.

The big challenge of importing them though is not so much format conversion, but deciding where to put them.

By definition, my answers are labelled with the question they respond to. But questions don't necessarily make good page names. They are too long. Not very guessable. And sometimes several answers should really be on the same page.

So I'm going to need to manually sort through them and route them to meaningful pages.

That's a Herculean task. (Did I mention that there are over 11,000 answers?)

And it's going to take me a long time.

Nevertheless, I've found a method which seems like if I follow it through, should get a lot of the good questions in over time. I also decided on a way to represent the answers here. A new CardType which is explicitly for manually imported content from elsewhere. (You can see it's a slightly different colour)

The next card is a search for these. Showing what's currently been imported :

0 PageNames containing "** *Quora Answer* :"

630 Pages containing " ** *Quora Answer* :"

An old LinkBin ... now deprecated but I'm leaving it until all these answers are fully incorporated.
