Guys, please take a look for this MediaWiki extension. I actually didn't try it myself but it seems very helpful especially for encyclopedical wikis like TG. --Vardo 08:53, 31 July 2006 (EDT)

It is definitely worth looking into though I still am having trouble seeing how much it can improve efficiency without adding complexity. Let's list examples in which the extension could be utilized as well as the Pros/Cons of installing such an extension. Thanks for bringing this up Vardo. --Hyarion 12:52, 31 July 2006 (EDT)

I should read more on this and maybe install it on my local box to test it. I'll tell about my outcomes. My current vision (as far as I know about semantic systems and RDF) is that it should allow authors to set semantic relationships between things - for example, an author can additionally define that "Arathorn" is related to "Aragorn" as "father". Then, a user or any external agent is able to make queries like "who was the Aragorn's father?" and so on.

Of course, I should investigate this extension in depth to provide all pros and cons to community. --Vardo 11:49, 1 August 2006 (EDT)
