Business/Announcements[edit | edit source]

We currently use wikitext editor 1.17 and plans to upgrade to (possibly) 1.21.  Mediawiki uses version 1.22.2

We need something that has a visual editor.

XP 's end date for support is April 8th 2014.

Windows 7 last production planned for Oct 31, 2014.

Visual editor (aka Rich Editor) is only editor some people use.

Change of some sort is required. IE doesn't work well, Chrome doesn't work with Rich Editor.  Firefox currently is only one working well. (unless one disables Rich Editor in Preferences)

Blair is project manager over Wiki. He is one to make the final decisions.

New Agenda Items[edit | edit source]

We need more community members attending meetings.  We need to give these people a louder voice to hear their perspective.  Missionary Support personel work well to host the meeting, but the agenda needs to revolve around community items. Someone involved in tech is needed too - as much of what is discussed needs that voice as well.  

NEXT WEEK...moderators and adopters to attend this meeting. (Myra to invite)
