Suggested re-ordering and additions
I was waiting to make the suggestions also. I figured you already had something in the works. The Council didn't have time at their meeting earlier this month to review the policy for approval. Their notes indicate that they will do so by special meeting. Hopefully that will be soon.
The colored tables will work well. Look forward to trying out the signature templates. I like the difference in shading btwn the title and rows, but I think they're generally too dark. The colored links don't display well in some spots. I suggest using lighter shades but keeping the difference in shading. Just my opinion.
Yeah, I don't like the darkness, either. Atm it doesn't fit with the "energy level" of the colours already in use. I was mostly just experimenting with Inkscape as a method of choosing which colours to pair together. When it's time to adjust the template for the approved policy, I'll choose new ones.
Also, do you think there's a reason the templates would be too complicated?
I'm not very experienced with this kind of process in a wiki, so I don't have a sense of what's too complicated. I use and help teens implement google forms for collecting opinions and votes from a small group. We use it quite successfully. I guess the key is that the user interface is simple.
