Kyle Hamar posted the following to my talk page at the wiki. I thought it was a good question and that we all should hash it out.
"Where do you see the wiki needing priority attention? Do we have a set of guidelines or other framework to follow for structure?"
I've been thinking about this also and was wondering if we should develop a 'to-do' list for everyone to work off of.
Here's what I see as priorities:
1. Formatting the glossary pages so that they have a consistent look.
Using Abilene Paradox as an example, at the glossary level
, there is the term itself which links to a page for the topic. Terms with pages are blue, those without are red. We need to get rid of the red links.
After the term is a one-sentence summary. Anything more should be on the page. If there's not a lot more, that's fine, but we should have something for each term so that the glossary pages all look the same.
2. From there, we should expand the pages to include other pages to help explain each term. Taking Abilene Paradox
as an example again, on the page are also red and blue links that are not in the glossary, but help explain Abilene Paradox (Paradox
in this case). Whether we want to include them in the glossary is up for debate, but it adds to the wiki when concepts are explained.
3. A good-looking main page. I've been working on it (increase size of glossary strip, adding to the 'Do you know' section) but my wiki-fu hasn't progressed to using nice-looking tables and other fancy formatting. I can fake it enough by copying what others have done.
Anyway, that's my two cents. We need input from others and then Marc can define some guidelines or prioritize a to-do list.
