HEY EVERYONE! THERE IS A DISCUSSION GOING ON WITH CREATORS FROM VARIOUS "OCCUPY WIKI SITES" WORKING TOGETHER TO FORM A MORE UNIFIED ONLINE WIKI-TOOL FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. IT IS HERE AND HERE!
Heyall, Felipe here. --edit-- I want to get further feedback on the idea of creating a parallel wiki, versus seeing if the NYCGA web guys aren't able to install a wordpress Wiki plugin for buddypress, like this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/buddypress-group-wiki/
I'm thinking this wiki would be most useful by structuring it so that EACH working group had a page(s) to list their current projects, etc. The reason I think it would be helpful is if we tag each project (ie transparency, skillshare, messaging, etc) then people can find projects of interest to them more easily. If each WG page is then further organized into things like: (this is not meant to be definitive, just an example)
Working Group Assets
--description of group purpose, links to subgroup wiki pages & missions
--links to public forums/list serves
--separate websites, used to archive past group input
--specific hashtags used online
WG Member Voices
--links to twitter, tumblr, etc presences of indivudual group members
--links to past minutes
Current WG & SubGroups PROJECTS
-- Projects/Initiatives explained in detail --links/descriptions to current projects (ideas already approved and being worked on)
--Current Obstacles/Open Questions (Need help with!)
--Project Tags, and explicit links to other subgroups of other WG, working on similar items.
Future Ideas/Suggestions for next meetings --proposals, arguments/discussions for a given topic
Tools & Resource Showcase --platforms, technologies, communities, or any other media that can help advance the purposes of the group.
If each Working Group has a similar set of sections, laid out in a template, then we can create a set of links on the left, for EACH one of those sections, across ALL GROUPS, which will take the visitor to a landing page of content from all working groups, organized by things like:
-Current Projects -Need Help With -Tools & Resources -Group Minutes -WG Member Voices
I think this would help with giving people a birds eye view of what people are doing, and can better help them jump in to the thick of what is happening.

Reorganising the Main Page
Hi folks, Devin here. I built this main page with hardly any understanding of wiki markup, no real wiki experience and my primary focus was putting up something that allowed me to work more quickly. Bottom line: this page needs substantial reorganising. I have a few ideas:
- Introduction: We need a cool blurb here - working on it.
- Topics: A link to each of the Harmonized groupings
- Lists in columns of Popular Projects, Popular Groups, Popular Knowledge, Upcoming Events. This can be manually changed in the beginning but it ideally would be dynamically generated.
- Get involved box
- Occupy.net Services
I'd really like to hand off this type of work to people who have more wiki experience than me.
I'd also like to see a reorganisation implemented by May Day.
What can I do to help?
Thanks. Devin 18:30, 19 April 2012 (CEST)
