Robin - please remember to not duplicate information that is already on the county pages.
  • Tech updates

Wiki will be moving to a new server at some point in 2014 to help resolve the fact that the current FS Server is filling up, (causing it to crash several times a month)


tells group that we will be getting a new editing tool soon
SEO (what search engines look for) needs to be above breadcrumbs. The new Wiki version will have this in the code. Don't stress about it now, as something is in the works that will change this
Wiki needs to be more friendly. We are support missionaries, not content missionaries. We can make suggestions on how to make more friendly. Let Giuseppe know if you want to work with content missionaries on making it friendlier/more user friendly.
Charles will work on the technical side, Myra on the user side of this. Others are welcome to join in on this project.
another goal is to let each group know what the others are doing. - what other groups are out there [ie content missionaries, support, engineering, etc]
?adopters- what is the progress. Diana has not contacted anyone yet- but working on it. [Trying to update who is current and who has dropped out.]
