Congratulations all on joining the team and thank you for wanting to help.
If for some reason you are not willing or not able to participate anymore and if you got a task assigned.
Please tell us, it is better to know than to wait for nothing to happen.

It is better that we discuss here about general topics and distillate tasks here.
We will leave the post with topic "Workgroup Wiki/Manual " in the user-channel for recruiting purposes.

I have made a placeholder for our group in the wiki

Purps I see what you are doing in the

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Draft_Main_Page

Maybe it is better to communicate you are on that project specific, and communicate your changes in the forum.
So it is easier to maintain?
If you reply with a yes, I will put you on that project.

I do this to keep overview, who is doing what and why?
Then it will be easier to keep track.
I want to prevent people from just jumping on pages and nobody knows what is happening or maybe "destroying" visions of others
That could lead to confrontations

That is why I am maybe a little nagging about rules etc..........

I am appreciating what you do, do not get me wrong.

On that page it says "Purps: As well as screenshots, or even instead of, we should have images that show LMCE in the home.", with regard to this people could submit there in home pictures:

Although mine is still under construction.  they probably do have to look more professional for the main page.

A good addition to the webpage would be the addition of the ability for users to upload their photos

Let's move the frontpage discussion to the proper task forum topic.

Possy suggested that when we are done with a page we should put them in special catagory that tells the community it is approved and/or maintained by the workgroup.
Just like my "Bongo stamp of approval". But let's call it different.

I am open to suggestions

LMCE-Approved
WW-Approved

I completely agree, I just had 20 minutes to kill before I went out and did a little bit, sorry I should have mentioned it first.

Whilst I think it makes sense to divide up the tasks to individuals or very small groups, I do think the main page should be a joint effort. I know everything will go through a review process ultimately, but still.

Yes could be. But it was our first task :)
Just wanted to have some input and see what direction we should go.

This is new for me too ;)

Bongo,

Once we've decided on the layout, then I can assist in changing the current pages.

If you want, I can help.

I believe strongly in a dummy installations manual. And since I'm a dummy today... ;)
Blocks (media, automation, server, security...) and how to configure the simple things (adding rooms, lights, dhcp, orbiter, scenario's...).
More in depth technical stuff belong in the forum, maybe with some shortcuts from the wiki to interesting topics?


  • Maybe it's best to assign some persons who reads/controls the articles?
    I'm active in a non-profit association, and there we've got 5 people who read our articles on language, structure...
    Since English isn't my native language, i know some thing can be written better.   :-X

  • And maybe some guys who follow up the layout?
    Not the structure, but keep the same titles, style of graphs...

Bongowongo, have you had any luck reading up on the MediaWiki stuff?

No Purps, I am a bit lacking.
I thought I could do this last weekend. I will do it coming weekend, to give some more swing to the whole project :)
