New Agenda Items

Benjamin Franklin "Living without a goal is like shooting without a target."

In an effort to move discussion items to completion, I am proposing that we use the following outline, subject to change, as a way to help us achieve  that.  This could be put in a table if we ever get the gridlines back!  For instance, I have been contacting Wiki Project leaders to get the status of those projects on the page "Wiki Projects Seeking Contributors".  I am proposing that we create an Archive page for the finished, cancelled or suspended pages that would have the link to the main project pages on it.  Then, we could have a badge created for those pages so that people would know immediately that the project is finished, etc.

  • Goal for this item: Have an accurate list of ongoing projects 
  • Steps to achieve this goal: 
  • Create an Archive page
  • Move project links to that page
  • Create a badge for the finished project main page
  • Get the badge on those pages
  • Assignments and dates of completion:
  • Evaluation date:averyld 18:09, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
