New Agenda Items

  • West Virginia strategy page. It has been usability tested with beginners, new missionaries, and more experienced missionaries. Two challenges were given, one in the 1853-1912 time period, and the other between 1913-1930. Several iterations, and this one was most successful — except several did not get to the actual image.
    • Suggestions: icon (camera?) for images; a bit of color for interest (very black and white); emphasize that the state was previously Virginia (it is there, but not emphasized enough); overall it is very very helpful.
  • Color of new skin is mostly white w/some purple highlights. - our added colors should be complimentary
  • DIscussion: Not update the wiki to the new skin, to instead go to the wikipedia skin
      • Suggestions: User test it, change colors on Wiki scheme (after change, cannot easily go back and change colors); this would be easier for engineers once the change is made; set up a test site;
      • Janell will report: not opposed, would like to see what it looks like and how it would integrate.
  • Portuguese wiki: wants to work through Yammer - a Facebook look alike. Suggest you find another method.
