Great job on the FAQ
Just wanted to compliment you on what a great job you're doing on the Support FAQ. The Wifi info is extremely helpful! Thanks a bunch. annegentle 10:20, 8 January 2008 (EST)
I was on the Support-gang conference call, and SJ etc mentioned I should touchbase. I have a great interest with the wiki and helping to organization/reshape the site to something more friendly, and easy to navigate.
I have lots of ideas and experience, and would like to knock heads with you on a good cooperative plan of attack. :)
And idea, is creating a section for wiki content areas.... on wiki page?

Re: ASL activity
I'd be interested in seeing an ASL activity developed, but am probably not the right person to do it because I'm no longer fluent in ASL. (I'm more of an AGBell person, actually.) There are some deaf/hard-of-hearing organizations in the Boston area - they might have better leads on that. (btw, I'm on IRC as mchua right now if you're on to chat.)

Welcome! And thanks for joining up, more artists are always welcome. Don't feel obligated to commit to anything, but one of the most recent proposed projects is to get some nice t-shirt designs that we can get printed at cost and sell/distribute for as little $$$ as possible. So, if you get inspired... (uploading for this isn't set in stone, but flickr or wikimedia commons under OLPC's standard CC licensing should be fine)

Er, 4 to 5 colors? O_o I've done a decent amount of hand screening, and that would be... pretty hard. It would take at least a day to get all the screens made, and a while to do the actual screening as well because you have to let the paint dry. I think it could be a lot of fun and a good community activity, but I'd limit it to one or two colors. --Nikki 17:52, 19 January 2008 (EST)
for details, go here
thanks for fixing that frontpage link. that's on my short peeve list of style guidelines That Have Been Ignored Consistently Since 1995. Where do these memes start? At least with "disambiguation" we have the edit history to track down the original coiners and congratulate/chastise them as necessary. --Sj leave me a message 11:43, 21 January 2008 (EST)
- The "Mongolia information is here" link... I just retooled the main page a bit; proofing appreciated. --Sj leave me a message
main page redesign
Next time people want to redo the main page (say, to implement one of the new suggested redesigns), let's mock up what it should look like on a tmp page first (perhaps The OLPC Wiki/temp) before updating the page directly. Leaving enough time for spirited debate about the size of the image before claiming all that visual real estate :)
I don't know how I feel about having another quote and the 5 principles at the top of the page -- those are things that won't change, unlike the news, and so don't make it a fun page to revisit. How about swapping the position of the news and the intro/5-principles? --Sj leave me a message 01:17, 28 January 2008 (EST)
follow up to User_talk:Biarm#Main_Page
- Hallo Katie. I have updated the Russian Main Wiki Page and aligned it with the current English version. You may now restore the link.
- Best, Biarm

Hi Katie ! Someone you should meet...
Merging Terminal pages?
Hi Katie. I was getting ready to merge Terminal with Terminal Activity, but there's an itty bitty note that says "Intentionally separate". Does that still hold? If so, maybe they need to be cleaned up but not merged? Tdang 00:29, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
design gang proposal
The recent vandalism is the work of some poor misguided soul that every few months moves or defaces a bunch of pages. Several of us who do a lot of countervandalism have gotten quite used to undoing any of the damage done. I will probably unprotect the user page protection that you had applied to the vandal's page renaming the offending user. cjl 16:38, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
