Add development items using a section [edit] link and they will be actively organized.



Elena notes from June 2012:

  • The "event box" template may not be as necessary as an "infobox" style (see attached). How can we make the formatting similar to the typical wikipedia articles?
  • Could we add an About section? In my opinion (only mine-anyone else can feel free to jump in), I think people would respond to categories as follows:

Main page About (this could include that first paragraph on the main page, plus some history of the people who first started it (yourself, Janet, Rob, etc) and a few pictures of the team. I could draft the text for this) Contribute! Community portal (I think to us, the purpose of this section is clear, however to others, it may not be so clear. Should we add some more examples, or perhaps add an explanatory paragraph?) Facet map (I personally love the facet map-I think this is pretty accessible. I'll have to think about how to showcase it more) Recent changes Français

Elena notes from July 16 2012

  • Would this format also allow for additional content (subjective, stories) to be added to our wiki, if so desired? Additional content (not from the wikipedia article), would not be updated.
  • If we decide on this route, would we have to wait for another week or so for this to be ready? We won't be meeting until end of next week, so I'm not sure whether you'd need to discuss with the designer before implementation.
  • Would this format also allow for the "info box" template? Most wikipedia articles have this template, however ours does not. The possibility of an info box has been brought up in initial meetings as well-whether we can make the AC wiki more like wikipedia articles to ease navigation.
  • How to make sure that the Asian-Canadian wikipedia lists have a presence.
  • Some pictures don’t show up on the main page.

Notes from Elena - July 9 2012

  • Ryoko Itabashi – missing her page?
  • Facet Map – links working?

-I go to Facet Map, then click “Montréal” Sinha Danse link goes to (image) a page that says “There is currently no text for this page”

  • How standardized do we want this wiki to be? In terms of Aspects, which ones do we use
  • Is there a way to edit titles of pages?
  • How to delete pages?
  • VJ Pillow – his link does not work anymore.
