(in no particular order)
Make homepage awesome. On both mobile (still sucks - sidebar causes unpleasant scrolling experience, but at least text explains what PTP is about) and immobile (fairly satisfied with how it looks with Firefox on netbook screen, haven't tried any others yet).
Introduction - Like PersonalTelco, but works well on small screens. Learned: Russell and Jason apparently fond of sidebar on homepage, DanRasmussen dislikes sidebar - see Dashboard section below). Replaced OldHomepage text with Introduction text on 25. April 2012 and trimmed down OldHomepage's sidebar. Visit PersonalTelco with a small-screen-having device to see why I hate the sidebar.
- Possible solutions:
Bookmark Dashboard page with small-screen devices, volunteers use as startup page. Easiest short-term solution until/unless one of the following items happens:
- Somebody who enjoys HTML/CSS formatting ("NOT IT!") gets sidebar to load *after* main page text
Your solution here
4 - Number of print pages required to print OldHomepage. 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.
1 - Number of print pages required to print current homepage without sidebar - default as of May 1st, 2012!
1.5 - Number of print pages required to print Dashboard. No real reason to print this page.
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
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NeedsUpdate - list of pages containing useful, but partly outdated, information. Skills required: wiki editing, and maybe research or subject knowledge.
NeedsCoded - list of areas in which PTP could use a little coding work, or advanced wiki skills
PersonalTelcoMetrics - list of interesting ways to measure the growth, utility, and benefits of the project
PersonalTelcoExports - useful documents for those 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 33324 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 for searches that don't change much. I don't know how often the cache is refreshed, but would like to figure that out. "Clear Cache" is one of the Page Actions.
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...
