WeRelate talk:Overview committee


Overall strategy [1 January 2013]

There's reference in the committee's mandate of defining the overall strategy for the site. Has the committee been able to make any progress with this? AndrewRT 18:03, 1 January 2013 (EST)

Cleanup guide [15 March 2014]

Beth suggested I move this discussion here. We've been talking about putting together a cleanup guide because several users requested one. It wouldn't be a bad idea. We were hammering this out on my talk page, but it would be best if it were here so more people could see it.--Daniel Maxwell 01:54, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Status of the Overview Committee [26 May 2016]

Returning after a long absence. Curious to know the status of this committee. Don't see anything posted for over a year... Thanks. Jillaine 22:26, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

The overview committee hasn't met for about a year. It's my fault. I haven't spent a lot of time working on WeRelate lately, and things seem to be going well without an overview committee. If someone were interested in starting it up again, I'll do what I can to help get it re-started...--Dallan 04:45, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Based on the recent discussions at WeRelate talk:Watercooler and WeRelate talk:Support, I think it's time. I would like WeRelate to stay relevant, exceptional, and even exclusive, so please let me know if I can be of assistance. --BobC 17:08, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

An update.

After discussions with Dallan the overview committee is being restarted, I am leading the restart unless someone else wants to do the job. As committee members are sorted out the page will be updated and I expect the first discussions will be in early June.--Rhian 12:25, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

I would like to be involved. Thank you. --Cos1776 16:34, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
I second your nomination to lead the effort. I too would like to be involved. Not sure yet in what specific capacity or role, but I feel I cannot legitimately point out the challenges and shortcomings here if I can't be prepared to invest the time in contributing to the effort to make it better. Thanks. --BobC 21:18, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Status? [21 September 2016]

There are some things that I would like to do, help with, etc., that just can't happen without leadership from this group.

For example, I would like to participate in creating code to standardize dates. That's even though my preferred format (leading zero on years before 1000) seems not to have gained any traction! Standard appearances - with tools in place to actively manage things - are more important than "winning" the outcome for any particular subjective appearance item. When tools are in place to maintain a community standard - the community has the opportunity to revise that standard without contemplating thousands of boring and error prone hand edits.
