- Good to see you are standing for the Council. I notice that you are interested in greater ease of use. However your comments seem to focus more on technical questions. 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:
- How do you think that being on the Council would help deal with such issues?
- How would you encourage editors to be more aware of these issues as they develop their pages?
- 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 14:52, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Excellent campaign page Steve. Specific, eloquent, and in touch. You get my vote.
