CZ:Wiki-converting

From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
Jump to: navigation, search

  For some history of this project, and shared ideas, see Anthony.Sebastian Talk Page Section on Wiki-Converting

This 'article' ('page') will track the activity of Editors/Citizens who volunteered to convert to MediaWiki-mark-up articles submitted in 'word-processor' format from users who prefer not to learn the mark-up format.

This project has been officially announced!

Note to volunteer 'wiki-converters'

If you have not already done so, please sign up to the mailing list http://mail.citizendium.org/mailman/listinfo/cz-wikiformat. That mailing list will have requests from subscribers for 'wiki-converting' — for you to choose from. Please respond to requestors.

Thanks to Louise Valmoria for setting up the list. See the following comments from Louise:

I have set up the mailing list here: http://mail.citizendium.org/mailman/listinfo/cz-wikiformat. Once we have the volunteers signed up to the [mailing] list, I can organise for the cz-wikiformat address to be open for submissions from non-subscribers so people do not have to sign up to the list to request formatting help.
Regarding submissions and the wiki page [this page], once we have volunteers signed up to the list and receiving submissions, whoever is available can update the wiki page with new submissions and notify if they are dealing with any particular articles. I think we're all in a wide spread of timezones, so should the list get a lot of traffic we can share the admin workload and stay reasonably on top of things. --Louise Valmoria 13:59, 4 December 2007 (CST)(Talk)
