Updates and follow up[edit | edit source]

Wiki Support Update

Followup of what went on this week:

Wilma shows her Fixi Wiki ideas in sandbox
Mandate from FS - make Wiki easier for beginners
Build online communication tools (Grey box of "share your opinion" is part of that)

Projects - we need to move beyond discussion and into action. We have

  • Format Issues
  • Content Issues
  • Visual Issues

Portals were passed over because search engines (ie Google) don't pick up. Therefore moving to hubs. Per Jim Anderson, main namespace is searchable, but others are not.

Projects are multiple pages on one topic
