Clearing Out the Cobwebs

Hi Kei! (And others who may be reading and/or joining at a later date.)

So. Um. It's been a while since we've used this community. It's also been a while since we've really looked at the Vulvapedia. I'm sure some links are broken. It may well be that some of the information is now out of date. So I'd like to take care of this by:
  1. Browse the Vulvapedia for "Phase 1" entries. These are ones that -- due to being a frequent topic in VP, due to being a guide that might not exist just this way somewhere else, whatever -- we could see being a good and well used resource in VP, at least once they're fixed up nicely.

  2. Get this list somewhere near 3-5.

  3. Figure out a task break down and time line that is manageable.

  4. One by one, figure out which kinds of edits -- broken links, language changes, info updates -- each needs and work them into wiki markup if applicable. (If you need to know about wiki markup, check out the... wiki... on wiki markup.)

  5. Promo our shiny updated VVP entries in VP.

  6. After that, figure out whether it makes the most sense to look at a "Phase 2" for current entry clean up or whether it makes more sense to start writing some new entries.

Does this sound good and/or workable in a general sense? If there are different ideas or needs, we should probably address those before we talk about anything like a potential time line.

I think that sounds like a great plan~

Yay! What seems a reasonable time line for Step 1?

(In the interest of full disclosure, I have fairly limited weekday availability and generally need a weekend to get anything meaningful done.)

Oh, jeeze... I think we should at least be able to get to #4 and have at least one of the entries polished up by then, if not more of them.

I've never used Wiki mark-up before, though, so it'll be a steep learning curve for me. Are you more familiar with it? Things might go faster if I can simply write out the entries and then have you add the mark-up, if you've used that stuff before.

Sounds good. I'll make a new post for thoughts and leavings about which wiki entries to target on a first pass. (Also, later today, I'll be posting the LRU in VP, at which point the new LRU brainstorming post will go up in this community.)

As for wiki mark up, I'm pretty familiar, yes. For revising the current entries, you just writing out the revisions definitely works, as a lot of the mark up is already in place (e.g., if we're fixing a broken link, we're just cutting and pasting something into the existing mark up, not adding anything new). When it comes to writing new articles, this should still work, though there may then be a slight delay (i.e., I'll need a weekend) for me to get them actually into the Vulvapedia.

Awesome, thank you - I will flag up when I've got things up-and-running properly.
