More arguments against homepage sidebar, minor reworking
|Deletions are marked like this.||Additions are marked like this.|
|Line 17:||Line 17:|
* [[Introduction]] - READY-TO-GO draft of replacement homepage. Russell and Jason really like the current sidebar, DanRasmussen weary of fiddling with formatting issues related to sidebar. So here it sits! Renamed from `PersonalTelcoConstructed`.
* [[PersonalTelcoUnderConstruction]] - draft of next-gen homepage. Not ready, but contains ideas for improvements over [[Introduction]].
* [[Dashboard]] - PTP entry page for volunteers. Goal: show every homepage visitor what they need, and no more! See [[DashboardIntro]] for details. Tried to include this page as a sidebar on [[Introduction]] page but failed (wasted too much time trying to get it right, and gave up).
* [[Introduction]] - READY-TO-GO draft of replacement homepage. Russell and Jason apparently quite fond of sidebar currently on homepage, DanRasmussen weary of fiddling with formatting issues related to sidebar (moreover, now convinced homepage sidebar is a bad idea - see [[Dashboard]] section below). So here it sits! Renamed from `PersonalTelcoConstructed` -- "/wiki/[[Introduction]]" will be easier to append to the URL on PTP's business cards and elsewhere.
* [[IntroductionNextGen]] - DRAFT of next-gen homepage. Contains ideas for improvements to [[Introduction]].
* [[Dashboard]] - PTP entry page for volunteers. Goal: show every homepage visitor what they need, and no more! See [[UsingDashboard]] for details. Tried to include this page as a sidebar on [[Introduction]] page but failed (wasted too much time trying to get it right, and gave up). No longer think Dashboard on [[Introduction|homepage]] is a good idea:
* 4 - Number of print pages required to print [[PersonalTelco]]. Note how awkward this looks in printed form, and how much of the information is quickly dated, or does not make sense in non-hyperlink form.
* 2.1 - Number of print pages required to print [[Introduction]]. Leave out the footer if you're going to print this - causes to run into a whole extra page!
* 1.5 - Number of print pages required to print [[Dashboard]]. No real reason to print this page, just measuring how much space it takes up.
(in no particular order)
- Make homepage awesome. On both mobile and immobile.

Add sponsor links to nodes (ongoing, but started 22. Feb 2012 and essentially finished 28. Feb 2012) - working through NodesByAge
- Add maps to node pages lacking them (pending determining how that works)
Create pages the wiki says ought to exist, where beneficial. See WantedPages (and be aware that it could take forever to load)
Create something similar to BackPackAp.
Using Android, find offline way to GPS navigate to nearest PTP node. Maybe using custom POIs for OsmAnd?
Pages I've Created
NeedsUpdate - list of pages containing useful, but partly outdated, information
PersonalTelcoMetrics - list of interesting ways to measure the growth, utility, and benefits of the project
PersonalTelcoExports - documents that may be useful to others who would emulate Personal Telco.
DanRasmussen/Questions - Personal Telco topics I'm interested in that don't appear to be documented in the written language
Macro Test Bed
Macro: RecentChangesList / RecentChanges()
Macro: RandomPage(integer) , RandomPage, PageCount
Several random pages, (out of 33976 total) :
Macro: FullSearch() / FullSearchCached()
Pages where DanRasmussen appears in text. Is there some way to show most recent pages edited by DanRasmussen, vs. being in the page text? FullSearchCached is probably for searches that don't change much. I don't know how often the cache is refreshed, but would like to figure that out.
an index of all page titles. Disabled on PTP wiki (why?), but embeddable in any page.
Macro: WordIndex, WantedPages, OrphanedPages
See AbandonedPages Quite a long list! Many PTP wiki pages haven't been edited forever - e.g. historical meeting notes. Wonder what the cut-off date is for this function...
