Process for Decision Making:

In the Wiki, when something major needs to be changed, it's important for the community to be involved with discussing how those changes should be made. The following will help the engineering team know what is important to the community:

(The following is a proposed process - please add your thoughts to the talk page.)

  • Make a suggestion: Begin by making a suggestion on the Forums or a Talk page so that others can chime in on the proposal.
  • Add your suggestion: Then add your suggestion to the page above. Create a new table and add a link to where the issue is being discussed. (These items can also be discussed in the Weekly Contributor and Technical meetings, but it's important that the discussion is being discussed where there is documentation.)
  • Set a priority: Add your vote to the "Priority Votes:" row with your username and what you see as the priority of the item from 1-5:
  • 1-High: something that affects a large number of users a significant amount
  • 5-Low: something that's a change more for aesthetic reasons than for usability purposes
As each person adds their priority, they should add their number into the average in the Avg. Priority row. If you are the owner, you should solicit at least x (how many?) votes for your item before you request that engineering review the priority.
  • Engineering Repsonse: When the engineers have reviewed it, they will add to the Next Steps section ....?
