Contents

These are some of the possible Category:OBX templates under consideration for development in November 2007. (Most were subsequently developed, some are little-used as of December 2008.) This is both a sandbox and a catalog for ideas. What follows are just ideas, with very little consideration for aesthetics, only the functionality (good; bad; yes, but...) and utility are to be considered.

Suggestions & requests

Please feel free to add ideas and suggestions about what you feel would be a good box to have, a textual description is more than enough (no need to try doing it yourself :)

  • team member status — Lauren suggested it, but can't imagine what she meant...
  • My best guess is stuff like "I'm an intern!" "I'm a Director!" "I'm an enthusiast!" "Im a staff member!" "I'm an XO user!" "I'm a very, very frequent volunteer!" Mchua 02:06, 13 July 2007 (EDT)
  • make boxes for different purposes different colors, for example 'i am a(n) artist/game developer/teacher/etc' could be red, while 'i want to find a(n) artist/game developer/teacher/etc' could be blue (and so on)
  • davewa would like to propose this user box:

development

mime png, jpeg
{{OBX mimetypes | type | subtype }} basically any page, and software components that handles mimetypes see {{OBX mimetypes}} — although a full-template, it is still being thought out... type|subtype is messy for all categories, and one thing is the actual mime type and another is the file extension...
FDBK User feedback can be found in {{{wikilink}}}
{{OBX feedback|location}} basically any page, and software components that want to have feedback the {{{wikilink}}} could be local or external, preferably a subpage (ie: [[somepage/Feedback]] which could be the default if no parameter is given).
DEV I develop/test using {{{environment}}} on {{{platform}}}
{{OBX develop|environment|platform}} for users to declare their platform of choice the environment could be QEMU, jhbuild, etc, while platfrom could be Fedora, Ubuntu, etc.

STAT The status of is {{{stat}}}
{{OBX source stat|stat}} basically any page that people are contributing for the concept embodied in said page the {{{stat}}} could be segmented into things like idea, pre-alpha, alpha, beta, ...

pedagogical aspects

{{OBX school grade|grade}} Page is related to a particular {{{grade}}}
ART I'm an [[Category:Artist|Artist]] can do [[Category:Artist foo|foo]]
{{User artist|foo}} A user would define itself as an Artist (cateogry), capable of doing foo (subcategory or artist), and also register as a volunteer (another category)
ART In need of a [[Category:Wanted Artist foo|foo]] artist
{{OBX artist wanted|foo}} A 'consumer' would specify some need for an Artist (cateogry), capable of doing foo (subcategory or artist). Those would be just references, not categorizations. Suggest by an IRC chat with User:nlee

projects

{{OBX geocoord|lat|long|XO}} basically any page that could be plotted (a Category:Pilot site, a particular XO, etc) the linkToMap would be built similarly to this pseudo template
XO Have XO will travel.{{{model}}}-{{{serial}}}
{{OBX xo|model|serial}} user pages that want to publicize their XO with pride this should probably be an user box, and could be merged with the GEO above.

l10n The localization resources can be found in {{{wikilink}}}
{{OBX source l10n|wikilink}} basically all activity pages, and software components that need to be l10n-ed superseded by {{OBX pot}}
