    Lightbulb Re: "GetInvolved" Wiki Page Improvement Project Thread

    I reread the log from the Augest 2013 Meeting, and I think adding a page called "What People are Doing". This page will act like a inspirational stories page to help new people to find a way to get involved with the skills that they have. Also, it might clean up the clutter for the new and improved page once it's up.

    ETA: Also, for the first part of that ouline, I meant to explain the types and have the links to the pages on the Ubuntu Wiki or site.

    Re: "GetInvolved" Wiki Page Improvement Project Thread

    I forgot to echo my thoughts from two weeks ago. All of these thoughts to the ideas came from the log of the Sep. 2013 meeting [1]. The first thought is for the "getting involved" day idea. This what I said on the list: "I dig that idea. We might need to reach out to get more people in for that day though." [2] The second thought for a quiz that can be used as a way to help women who don't know what skills and how much time they have based on what Dolasilla, the person of Italian web team that is responsible for the site, said [3]. I dig this idea too but this requires skilled coders to create and I feel that the Ubuntu-Women team doesn't have one who can do this and that means we need outside help. Or am I wrong here?

    [2]https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...er/003864.html
    [3]https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...er/003869.html

    ETA: I think the main page is fine with some minor edits that I have done. I think we need to add on stories to help other women to learn to get involved.
