Guidance for the Perplexed

Hi Kim,

Good to see you are standing for the Council. One thing I have noticed is that a lot of the material is incomprehensible to many people who have not really engaged with the project. For example searching for "Open Office" produced nothing. Now Open Office has a redirect page. One of the side-effects of this is that when a friend of mine searched the site for Open Office training material he drew a blank. As I continued my research I found that many editors feel content merely to put initials up, such as CCNC. I have since included the words "Commonwealth Computer Navigator's Certificate" and put a link. I have also created a category for Open Office.

My questions are:

  1. 1. How do you think that being on the Council would help deal with such issues?
  2. 2. How would you encourage editors to be more aware of these issues as they develop their pages?
  3. 3. Do you think it would be useful to create some resources to help editors bear these issues in mind?

If you have time to put your response here, as I am asking all the candidates to respond to this question in order to guide where to place any votes I may care to caste.Leutha 15:37, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
