Priority items for this meeting:

Updates and follow up

  • Images: Please watch Salesforce each day for image requests that will me coming in in high volume. Please let Robin (Private Skype or Yammer) know so that they can be approved quickly.
  • Adoption Program: Robin met with Diana on Wed, Feb 19th. If time permits, Diana can give brief synopsis of first steps.
  • County Seat Pages:

Please review these concerns about county seat pages: Yammer Instead of creating county seat pages that remain empty, what does everyone feel about the suggestion to create county seat pages for Florida first, then add basic resources for those cities before we move along to a different city. We do not have as many content producers like we had in the past at the FHL. Are we willing to put some basics on the pages until we get more contributors? Who else can we reach out to for help? Ideas:

  • Placement of SEO: ""Charles, please show how SEO text is supposed to be placed on the Wiki ahead of the bread crumbs. Please also explain what SEO is and why we are concerned about it for those who do not know.
  • Guidelines for pages: Charles is developing a guide to help contributors understand the basic elements that need to be on a page (categories, bread crumbs, SEO text and placement, aligned photos, header sizes, etc.) Do you have any other suggestions that need to be in the guide?
